Games Workshop Previews Adeptus Custodes Special Rules for 40k

Never underestimate the power of Space Janitors. The Adeptus Custodes are some of the most fierce fighters in the galaxy. They're here to clean up the Genestealer Cult that's infested Terra. And we get a look at the power of their Stand in this preview.

From the article:

The fate of Holy Terra hangs in the balance as the Adeptus Custodes attempt to drive a perfidious Genestealer Cult from beneath the Imperial Palace. You can pick a side with the Shadow Throne battlebox very soon.

The resplendent yet stoic Adeptus Custodes are big strapping gold warriors, and when they’re not standing guard on Terra, they’re jetting about the galaxy, enforcing the will of the Emperor.

As far removed from Astartes as Astartes are from regular humans, the Custodian Guard are probably the deadliest fighters in the galaxy, human or otherwise. 

Set to arrive with us shortly after the release of Shadow Throne, Codex: Adeptus Custodes underlines the brilliance of these legendary warriors with rules for martial ka’tahs, a series of power stances adopted in unison by entire Shield Hosts, bringing centuries of training to bear with violent precision.
