The way you’d fire it is no different to the normal Custodes weapon. It’s only the melee part that’s different.

He probably didn't know where the trigger of the gun is

They're strictly hip fire only weapon, Although it's best to stick the blade inside the target before firing away for maximum accuracy , this is why the spear is better than the Axe imo.

No way. An axe is an upgrade over a spear because it allows you to behead heretics much more easily. And we all know that righteous hatred of the heretic is much better expressed by cutting their heads off then by stabbing them. This is why the axe is better. There simply is no better tool for to truly show your devotion to the God-Emperor (Our Undying Lord) by beheading and shooting heretics at the same time.


You know, I like to believe that ' what is the most righteous method and weapon to kill heretics?' is a really important theological debate within the Imperium. Wars have probably been fought over it between disputing parties.

I hope so too. This guy and one other kit (and maybe an upgrade sprue) would go a long way to making a Custodes army viable.

There won't be a talons of the emperor codex release in Jan.

However from things I've heard there is a strong possibility of an Imperial Agents (Custodes, Sisters of Silence, Assassins, Inquisitors) codex at some point. But if I were GW I would probably make it the last codex released because Orks, Tau, etc need their codices first before Imperial soup gets more options.

keep in mind what's "needed" is going to take second shift to "what sells" otherwise well.. we'd have plastic sisters by now

While i dont expect a codex release in Jan (Malign Portents webpage for AoS has a countdown to early Jan), I had heard rumours of a Custodes codex coming. And i thingk some of the rumour pics that have been released might hint at them too.

Yeah a lot of the rumour engine pics could potentially be Custodes stuff. You've got that reactor thing, the most recent plume, the eagle shoulder pad (or whatever it is). They could easily be something else entirely, but the mechanicus thing is certainly a new imperial model, of a kind that needs a reactor to power it.

Would love to see Rak'Gol most of all - an army like the AOS Beastclaw Raiders or Tyranid Monster Mash where you have a legit playable army made from a small number of very badass aliens including techno-shamans and cybernetically modified monsters.

Would probably be terrible in the game but whatevs.


Anyway my local Warhammer store owner thinks there's a big Custodes release upcoming with a Talons codex and a plastic jetbike. I know that probably means nothing but... hey... one more baseless unsourced rumor for the rumor mill!!!

Weird, I'd have assumed that, if anything, the next custodes release would have been terminators or dreadnought conversions. The jetbike seems like an odd choice. Don't get me wrong, I'll take whatever variety I can get.

The jetbikes have been a staple part of Custodes art for a long time.
Wasn't there something in one of the latest Dark Angel updates saying that Sammael's jetbike wasn't the only one left in the Imperium?

I agree that jetbikes are definitely a custodes thing. Just that terminators are also a custodes thing, and would be a more likely kit. Let's just hope they get both.

I can agree with this. The Forgeworld Custodes Termis are pretty snazzy. Just have to get them in plastic now to make them somewhat affordable

If I had to guess (and without any concrete info I do!), I’d expect them not to directly duplicate FW stuff.

I wouldn't say that's an absolute these days, but I very much doubt they'll duplicate FW stuff that's only just come out fairly recently. If they do a Custodes army(bleugh) they'll release newshiny stuff initially and rely on FW to pad-out the roster with an Imperial Armour release, then plasticise the FW units next edition assuming the army sells well.

A while back I read that the Custodes sold better than GW anticipated. Not Space Marine good, but better than other sideshow units GW has put out in the past.

Something like that could very well have enough demand for a release similar to genestealer cults. Heck, Grey kights only have three dedicated boxes.

the talons of the emperor box set was actually sold out this christmas which is impressive considering it's a year old boxed set. my guess is demand has leapt in anticipation of having an HQ and thus being a viable army

Talons has been on the last chance to buy shelf at my GW for months, so being sold out isn’t that much of a feat. Production problems have forced GW to focus on the smaller kits lately.

Maybe GW will give us the hover Rhino's we all want in plastic. Maybe a better looking jetbike too.

it's the quiet ones you have to look out for. Their the ones that change the world, the loud ones just take the credit for it.

Right at the end of this Bols post you can the Feb. 2018 teaser and it says "A whole lot of gold" that could very well be a custodes release.

Or you could have looked at Warham-77's posts here on Dakka, seen those same teasers and noticed that Malign Portents(an Age of Sigmar event) starts in January and has an "army building" component to it...

Stormcast are pretty gold too, y'know.
