I like him. I definitely want him to have a helmet instead of bare head, but otherwise he looks great. 10/10 will buy.

Wow that bird sure look similar to one rumour, but apparently it's not, does that mean we might get more custode in the future?

Nice. Though just as I had converted myself one Ah well. At least different equipments so both have their uses!

Not a fan of 'feathers' but the rest looks great.

I'm curious if there will be rules to go with the mini.

I really like it.. besides I rather had one with Helmet and no feathers.. I guess the feathers should be easy to remove though.

Ooh... Custodes HQ! I have wanted to convert my own, and now we will get rules, though this official model is bloody excellent too!

The singular of “custodes” is “custodian”

I hope that the chest is complete without that tilt shield and it's oversized feathers on.

Probably a separated piece just like any terminator kit, The shoulder pad and gauntlet might be missing some part to glue that shield on.

At first I thought it was a kitbash, using some 3rd party legs and different heard

Pretty cool looking model though. If the head is a separate piece, generic Custodian helmet might fit in there too!

I'm not sure this is what we were 'Crying out for', but it's a nice gesture of support to a very underwealming army in 40k, that noteably didn't get touched by Chapter approved.

Perhaps there's some help for Imperial Agents yet..

It could be his chestplate in profile?

It was a very frequent request on the Facebook user posts for the Warhammer 40,000 page. This is a pretty big thing for a lot of people.

I know I am thrilled. This guy is absolutely something I have wanted for a long time. Even if he does not come with a helmet (I strongly suspect he does), I would still use this guy. I love the halberd. Hopefully this guy is given some pretty great rules.

Seeing I can't even make legal army without HQ for them HQ model is rather welcome!

Its not the chest plate, the feathers on the rumor picture are much more defined.
It might be the shoulderpad, as it does seem to have an eagle on the right side. ( you can sort of see the bottom of one)
That being said, the rumor picture eagle seems to be thrust too far forward for a shoulder pad. He would look pretty lopsided and from a conceptual standpoint would look much better on his left.
Thats my take on it anyway.

Yup. Now I might need to get a few more squads of Custodes too. A couple Squads with swords and Shields and a squad with Spears.

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.

This is fantastic - my Custodes no longer need to abduct Celestine or Primaris Psykers to lead them to battle.

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