Draigowing as Adeptus Custodes

Post by Shannar on Sat Oct 22, 2011 8:40 am

Hi, I want to use GK armybook for building my Adeptus Custodes army...here is first example, I must note that this is not supposed to be competitive...

Unnamed1750 Pts - Grey Knights Army

1 Lord Kaldor Draigo
Yeah, in my army he will be the holy emperor himself
1 Librarian -Servo Skull; Qty: 1; ; Might of Titan; Warp Rift; Teleport Homer; The Summoning; The Shrouding;Nem Warding Staff
Very important person of list, he is must have in such a small army

10 Paladin Squad - Combat Squads; Nem Force Halberd (x8); MC Nem Daemon Hammer (x1); Storm Bolter (x6); Psycannon (x4); Brotherhood Banner
I can combat squad them to make one unit as a support unit with 4 psycannons and MC hammer, and the second unit with banner as a command group with Draigo and Libby
5 Paladin Squad - Nem Force Halberd (x4); MC Nem Daemon Hammer (x1); Storm Bolter (x3); Psycannon (x2)
Universal squad which can be support squad or can be summoned by Libby to help command squad

1 Dreadnought (Heavy Support - TL Autocannon; TL Autocannon
1 Dreadnought (Heavy Support - TL Autocannon; TL Autocannon
Bringing some heavy fire

Models in Army: 19
Total Army Cost: 1750

I plan to use iit as a defending list with those 6 psycannons and psyrifle dreads with some counter attack power...some opinions would be nice because Im totally noob in playing with new GK...thx a lot

Out of curiosity, how are you going to convert them to look like adeptus custodes? Smile I really like the look of the custodes! I think grey knights are a good base to use, and it'd be really cool if you converted the stormbolters+halberds into Guardian Spears

If you're going to keep the 10 man paladin squad, it might be worthwile to add an Apothecary for FNP, which will increase the units survivability against small arms fire greatly

As it is a themed and non competitive list, I think it looks good Smile

Hey, as a themed idea, you could model the librarian as Malcador the Sigillite.

Try and arm all the paladins in the same squad differently so you can use wound allocation to your benefit.
Other than that, well done.
Would love to see pictures of how you plan to model this amazing force.


Last thing, I have a small problem with Kaldor "being" the Emperor. He's underpowered. Very Happy

Thx for you opinions, for models I will use Scibor roman knights and for dreads I will use new relic contempror pattern dreadnoughts from forgeworld, Ive just ordered this things:

As a draigo, I ordered shield bearer too Very Happy

This will be my Librarian, he needs only minor conversion work (such a warding stave and psychic hood)

And finally Banner bearer, again he needs some conversion, but I think, that this will be good start for AC army...

About equipment of paladins, yeah I was thinking about it, so I can use wound allocation, but there are fluff reasons, so maybe not..
About apothecary, I dont have enough points for him, large squad will be nearly always combat squaded, so I think he is not necessary, but we will see Very Happy

Should be a nice unique looking force Twisted Evil

I really like the idea of the army, it will be very unique.

One small thing, from a gameplay perspective I would suggest when you combat squad the Palladins keep 2 psycannons in each squad otherwise 16 psyc shots will all have to go to one target and only storm bolters to another. I have more luck with 8 psyc shots for each squad. Overkill is a waste.
