So I was thinking the other day about a Custodes list and it’s not for competitive games more could you fit as many shield captains as you can into a working list? This is what I came up with and what do you all think of it.

Supreme Command Detachment:

HQ:
Valloris
Shield Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike: Hurricane Bolters, Misericordia
Shield Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike: Hurricane Bolters, Misericordia
Shield Captain on Dawneagle Jetbike: Hurricane Bolters

Elites:
Allarus terminators: guardian spears

Supreme Command Detachment:

HQ:
Shield Captain in Allarus armour: guardian spear, Misericordia
Shield Captain In Allarus armour: guardian spear, Misericordia
Shield Captain In Allarus armour: guardian spear, Misericordia

Elites:
Allarus terminators: guardian spear

Supreme Command Detachment:

HQ:
Shield Captain: sentinel blade, storm shield
Shield Captain: sentinel blade, storm shield
Shield Captain: sentinel blade, storm shield

Elites:
Vexillus Praetor in Allarus armour: vexilla magnifica, Misericordia

1998 points and 6CP.

How do you plan on taking down Knights or other tough units?

Hopefully get into combat with a knight that’s pretty much it really there are no points for the Melta missiles on the jet bikes. There is the option the deep strike as well and hope for a charge that way too. But like I say it’s not competitive but would be funny to see this on a table top at some point

Might be good, but lacks any flavor

Just wanted to see if maxing our shield captains could be done into a somewhat viable army. Just a hard as nails army but lacks mobility and heavy firepower.

Also, unless you are going to get a lot of people complaining about using more than three shield captains

Run whatever makes you happy. If you are going to run an army that people have a hard time killing I can't blame you.

Someone has to be the bad guy in a tournament situation. In a friendly game I wouldn't play a list like this or even entertain the idea of the multiple Knights and all that.

Tournaments are different though. Be ruthless in those.

To make this list a bit more feasible to run:

Supreme command:

Dawneagle captain/w warlord (radiant mantle), auric aquillus, Misericordia

Shield captain/w axe
Shield captain/w axe

Praetor/w axe, magnifica

Outrider Detachment:

2x Dawneagle captain/w Misericordia

3x pallas grav assault

Battalion detachment:

3x Allarus Captain/w Axe

3x Custodian Guard/w one sword and board in each.





Now you have 10 CP to work with 2 of which should go on your warlord for Victor of the Blood games. More total wounds to reduce smite threat from wiping you off the table, and the -1 to hit banner helps a lot.

You can get superior creation againgst mortal wound spam armies, but the warlord having -2 to hit him can try to tank everything turn one and two if your lucky.

Moved a few things round and coming in at 1998 points a bit more harder hitting with the castellan axes instead of spears so being able to stand up better to higher toughness models such as knights forcing 5/6 up saves in combat if I use the strat to make the axes -3 instead of -2.

I think the list is compliant with Ro3. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Shield Captain, SC in Allarus armour and Dawneagle SC are all separate datasheets. The list only has 3 of each

How are you going to get in close? Your army aren't long range shooting, and you can only deep strike around half of your army, while only 3 models can move fast. Thus I can expect around 40% of your army is doing nothing in the first two round

This is one of the ways that Marines got shafted. If we could deploy from Drop Pods like we used to or do the all Terminators Deep Strike it would make them a much more viable army.

My Dark Angels would love it. Hell, make it a Strategem but it costs like 5 cp and can only be done by an army consisting of Space Marines.
