Update 11 - HH Book 7: Inferno will bring full army lists for 30k

Yup, unfortunately Inferno is pretty much guaranteed to be coming out around the same time as the next Weekender (in February) at the earliest. They were still proofreading it back when the Amsterdam Open Day was happening.

In WD November 2016 (Page 50) the Designer says "I also Sculpted loads of Tiny Prosperan Glyphs and Icons on his Armour, Including a TINY TZEENTCH SYMBOL. Im not going to tell you where it is though, you'll have to find it yourself!"

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.

Update 10 - *PDF* Sisters and Custodes 40k datasheets and formations now downloadable from the GW website for free

Sisters of Silence are considered to be part of the Armies of the Imperium, and ally as such

So currently no way to field either sisters or custodes in a battle forged army? Only unbound?

There is an unboxing video on Youtube. They obviously haven't read the rules ("same as BaC") but it gives a good look into the booklets and some of the other content we haven't seen in detail before

Ok, some rules from someone who says they have seen the WD:

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.

Update 3

I don't see the info on this thread so:

From Atia on B&C
Sooo, since the video is out ...

- 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.

kenbian wrote:
Found this on B&C

From 4chan:
According to a mate, these are the profiles for custodes and sisters:

ws6, bs4, s5, t5, w2, i5, a3, ld10, 2+/4++.
hatred, furious charge, rampage.

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

The Custodes and Sisters of Silence are both full kits according to Atia, i.e. With weapons options and stuff. So you might be able to give all the Sisters guns.

Yes, all kinds of yes.

They have basically swapped a static comtemptor, the worst part of calth for custodies and SoS. Win win.
