I think he's not bad. Agree about the helmet. I also don't love the megafeathers, but if he's a multi part clampack character, they ought to be easy enough to get rid of.

It is a very nice mini. Since it is in plastic, and that rumour image is very similar but not this mini, it is either part if a triumvirate or part a larger range of custodes minis. My guess is that Rogal Dorn will be the next primarch but he will be commanding the custodes and not the imperial fists. I think this ties into something Sad Panda said ages ago about primarchs returning at the head of surprising armies.

Or it's just a bird for a model in Age of Sigmar and has nothing to do with 40k?

Worth mentioning that Wanderers are still sitting on a lot of hero models in Finecast/metal and they've been given a warlord trait and a relic both that grant a character with no ranged attack(which in this case means just the Spellsinger) a bird that gives a ranged attack instead. And that the bird in question looks markedly similar to that which the Nomad Prince has perched on his arm.


In the rumour article, they said they were particularly excited to show that model. That suggests something primarch level.

There's also the whole Malign Portents thing happening next year for AoS, with each Grand Alliance getting a 'Herald'. They showed off Nagash's at GenCon or Adepticon and it was a big deal. I'd say something like that would qualify as "Primarch level", wouldn't you?

That said, the bird there only has one head. The Aquila is a Big Deal for the Imperium to the point where they actually have things like the Psyber-Eagle that Coteaz has.

Nice. I can finaly field a custodes only army. Not a big fan of the feathers seems to be a bit too much.

I'd put money on GW doing Custodes and that rumour pic being part of a different one. Cant see the only release being a special character, and the head of the Custodes at that.
And I dont think GW would be doing them 'just because' FW's have done well, but because they've been writing them back into the fluff since Gathering Storm, which would ahve been prepped for a while. Plus the existing plastics would have been designed for a while.

He is beautifull. And I agree, this is one of the only times I have seen a GW head and think "This head is beautifull, it deserves to be exposed without a helmet"

Those feathers are a nice touch. It reminds me of old Fantasy Empire Generals.

I wonder how expensive he is, I was just wondering yesterday I really needed an useful but not Guilliman/Celestine levels of expensive HQ in my imperial soup supreme detachment. I have been using a Lord Commissar but he is downright useless barring being cheap and guaranteeing me that 1 extra CP

Very nice looking army, and I am glad I'll have an HQ I can take with out needing to borrow a Greyfax. Still probably will on occasion anyway though. The Captain General is a very busy Post-Human.

Good God Almighty. The Warhammer Gods have heeded my prayers. I was going to say I need one of these.....but in order to make a Battalion detachment I will need two.


He's got to have almost RG level stats. Not quite, but almost. Having two of those guys as HQ's (not Lords of War) might be interesting.

I wonder if this means our begging for FW 30k units to be ported over into 40k will be answered as well?

Also, I wonder if the rules for the HQ will have weapons options, even if they aren't in the box. IE, use leftover arms/ weapons from the Custodian Guard box set.

Yeah, that's what I thought. On the other hand, that doesn't look like a standard Custodian Spear. Hopefully it's a spear +1, to be worthy of the General's rank.

As others have said, Valdor, FW showed off his CG render a while ago.

Probably just the Halberd ( S+2 maybe?), the Boltgun and probably a 4++ rather than a 5++.

They are nearly the same. But I agree, the Muten Roshi FW one is a little better. But this plastic one isn't exclusive and don't go for 80€ on Ebay

While I am SUPER thankful they finally gave us an HQ, if he is a named character (and thus unique) that means we still can't make a battalion since we need 2 HQ's.

Here's hoping for the generic version.

I don't know why, but I have a feeling that this guy will come in a Triumvirate box of some kind. Maybe the Lion, Mepheston, and this guy (would fit with the other pattern of a Primarch/MC, a redone character we know, and a new character.)

Huh, you have a point here. Mephiston is a pretty dated figure in need of a refresh.


On another note, do Custodes even need a "real" codex? What if they give us something similar to the pamphlet thing with got in 7th? Couple strategems, Special Character, generic HQ, Dreadnought elite, one troop, Land Raider for Heavy Support. Just throw it out in addition to another release.

I think the main reason GW made the Custodes in plastic at all was to roll them out as a full faction. And to that end I see the primaris grav tanks as being both a bridge to keep the shock of custodes grav tanks minimal, but also pre empt all the eye rolling that would come from people looking at Custodes grav vehicles and question why the rest of the imperium doesn't get any of that that sweet sweet Terran old tech.

Of course that begit eye rolling of an entirely different nature in response, but that's my take on it at least.
