Now in the Artwork behind the Text, the Tzeentch symbol is located on Ahrimans Right Leg (our Left)
Is it Located in the same place on the Model?
Think so yeah. It is tiny though, quite hard to make out.

Nope, 55 points per model, with a starting squad cost of 125 for three.(Horus Heresy rules from november's white dwarf)
WS5 BS5 S5 T5 A2 W2 with a 2+/5++ armour save.
The guardian spear is a S User/+1 AP 3/2 with the alternate profile applying on the charge and a special rule which causes it to generate an additional hit(or to hit roll, can't remember) on a to-hit roll of six. It also comes with an inbuilt S4 AP 4 assault 2 bolter with range 18".
The Custodes Armour gives them move through cover.
And the Custodes themselves have a special rule which extends their cohesion range to 3" rather than 2" and another which increases them to WS 6 when fighting opponents with equal or less WS than them.
They also have a sword and shield option which uses an elite choice. Those guys get a 4++ save which I think is rerollable under a certain circumstance and they have a power sword with rending and an inbuilt bolt weapon with a special rule called hail of fire.
- Everything is multipart (besides the chars)
- Sisters have head and weapons options (boltguns, swords, flamers)
- Custodes have option for spears and swords/shields
- I love the mark III helm variants
Paradigm wrote: According to Atia they have bolters and flamers as well, it's a full multi-pose kit, so with some conversion using them as SoB is not at all out of the question. If an arm can take a Bolter or flamer it can take a melta, though I can see Heavy Weapons being more of an issue.
The biggest barrier would be that they appear a good half-head taller than the Marines around them, I don't know how easy that would be to remedy.
ws5, bs4, s3, t3, w1, i5, a2, ld10, 2+.
Preferred enemy (psykers), hatred (psykers)
furious charge and a pariah blade which inflicts ID on any model with the psyker special rule and otherwise is ap3.
they will have the pariah rule meaning they can never be the target of any psychic power. and all psychic powers cease to be in effect within 6" of the unit
You are welcome, please credit Markain too. There could be more on 4chan where the pic is hosted. This seems to be a GW order catalogue page with specific info which is a welcome change from blurry pics
