Captain Idaho Posted May 25 Share Posted May 25 So how do people feel about the focus? Personally I feel Custodes are coming out strong. Overall they appear to be better against just about all infantry, more resilient against Mortal Wounds but worse against vehicles. Being worse at holding objectives is compensated by Custodes being so killy against opposition so it's a wash for the most part. Single vehicles holding an objective will cause a few problems to smaller or depleted Custodes it's true. Their weapons have some nuance between them now, with Axes being ideal against opponents with Invulnerable saves. I'm sure mathhammer will contradict that, but I'm no sorcerer. Sisters of Silence seem more dangerous to psykers, which will work nicely against Tyranids funnily enough, but are still the old vulnerable power armour units they once were. Hopefully Rhinos can help them a bunch in this edition. The biggest weakness appears to be dealing with enemy armour in this edition. Relying on 5s to wound in melee and abilities needing critical hits to increase capacity doesn't look that reliable. We can see Land Raiders are an obvious source of anti-tank but can't guarantee cost effectiveness there. However, with the new Horus Heresy Contemptor, I'm very hopeful that we'll be able to use twin lascannons on these to provide that crucial heavy hitting power. That would be a game changer for the faction I believe. (Also we don't know what's happening with Forge World, but likely the melee capacity of their Dreads will rock as always. The tanks are likely to have decent weapons too) So I feel in summary that things are looking rosey for our elite elite fighting army.
