Its probably just an army showcase of either AoS Hammers of Sigmar Stormcast or 40/30k Talons.

Captain-General Trajann Valoris was said to be "coming soon" according to GW, and that was back around Thanksgiving. February is three months, so if not by then I wouldn't exactly say that's "soon".

Early febuary is reasonably soon honestly.

Like I said, if not by February, then it's not soon. February is still there I'd say.

My french is pretty limited but I tried to follow a News&Rumor thread on WarFo regarding future Custodes releases for a while. Correct me if I'm wrong but user Mika117 expects a Codex Custodes or something similiar to be released around February/March. This was back in November. See Page 1

http://www.warhammer-forum.com/index.php?/topic/255741-custodes/

The 'Whole lot of gold' teaser seems to have re-ignited the conversation.

My own limited French seems to go along with the above interpretation.

And otherwise, "A Lot of Gold" doesn't have to mean JUST Custodes or Sigmarines. Maybe it means both will be focused on?

Could also be mercenaries as they could cost “A lot of Gold”, dwarves as they dig up a lot of gold or just some really wealthy pimp....wait....Slaanesh is rumored to be coming back...

Yes, nothing new, just apparently French Wargame Studio, a French YouTube channel told them that february is gonna be Custodes. Noone knew why then, but now...
Mika wrote the same ( February = Custodes) but didn't give more infos (why ? Who told him ?).
Then another one is telling that february is Tau^^ that GW advanced some dates, and that it is not going to be custodes but stormcasts, I guess he is gonna be quite surprised.

That wouldn't be odd. One of the current theories is that armies that saw no changes in chapter approved were the ones who would soon be getting codices. There weren't changes to Custodes, or to sisters of silence etc. It may be - and this is pure speculation - that this means we'll get an imperial agents or talons of the emperor book in the first couple of months of 2018.

Woohoo, called it... kind of. Shame it's just Custodes on their own.

looking at that Death Guard release now I am dreaming of Custodes getting at least two more single character models besides Valoris ...

I'd be content simply with a generic HQ

Since the terminator thread was locked and now the multi-thread is locked, I'm bumping this for Custodes Rumor Discussion. (If a mod could change the thread title, that'd be great)

Looks like we may be getting this dex in the first half of Feb if the rumor is correct, which is much sooner than I expected.

I'm hoping in one of these new kits we get we get a generic HQ choice for the Custodes.

Anyone else spy anything interesting about our Golden Warriors of Doom around the net?

This guy looks as though he could be a generic character, similar to the veteran guys but with a proper cloak too:


Also, from the ‘terminators’ box, I assume Shield Captain is a character? It’s a HQ in 30k.

I wonder if a terminator can be a HQ?

Sadly the 40k Custodes rules refer to a unit sergeant as a Shield Captain, even though those are indeed rare enough to be Captain equivalents within the Custodes ranks and make more sense as an HQ.

Vigo. Spain.

The Terminators can be taken in units of 1, so I think they have done that for two reasons:
-Allow Custodes to have cheap units (The same with the min size of a custodes unit, it will change from min 5 to 3) to don't end with 150 points in their army that they can't fill.
-To use the 3-man terminator box to build characters and not be punished.

I believe the Shield Captain and Vexilus Praetor in the back of the box will be generic HQ's. Probably the Vexilus will be a elite, like an Ancient.

This is another possibility.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

I have a very, very hard time imagining that standard bearer being worthwhile if he needs to give up his close combat weapon to hold it despite being a highly expensive Custodes terminator.

Heck, the only reason I even have a Vexilla modeled amongst my Custodes as-is is because I built him for 30k where he could take a Solarite gauntlet in his other hand.

the Velixa I see as being something you do if you're taking a single unit of Custodes to back stop Imperial guard. as it gives anyone in 6 inches essentially ATSKNF and an extra attack. Park a custodes velxia near a 30 man conscript squad and you've got a pretty stiff line I DON'T see it being useful for a pure Custodes army though unless it's cheap

The extra attack only applies to the Custodes unit itself. Still pretty good if you've got a decently large squad.

I think the rules for the Vexilla will be changed. Because it would not be useful in unit samller than 5.

there may also be differant TYPES of Vexilla. one for custodes squads themselves, and a special one for the terminators.

The announcement said: "Finally, if you’ve already got a sizeable collection of Forge World Legio Custodes, rules are on their way for you to use your favourite units in Warhammer 40,000, in addition to the huge range of new plastic kits."

No specific date was given though.

It would be nice if they change the meaning of Shield Captain to an HQ choice now. But I guess we'll see.

I do imagine we'll get a Praetor or Tribune or something HQ option though.

I will continue to pray for Valdor as a HQ until the day I die.

In general I'm excited to see more models, especially Dreads.
