November of 31st millenium WIP by Noldofinve November of 31st millenium WIP by Noldofinve
Amon Tauromachian and guys. I like Custodes, I like Amon, I like their armour... Fan-girl, yesss.

Sadly, I didn't find no detailed information about Adeptus Custodes units depicted in "The Horus Heresy Collected Visions". Does anyone here know something about the Lentum Foot Knights or Agricolus Guard Squad etc.?

or simply approaching their target. Maybe on their search for a mechanicus. :P

Epic work. Amazing atmosphere. It's like one of the Custodes secret missions and they're observing some hostiles on the move.

No ideas about the custodes too though, sorry. >.<

The custodians operates alones they are "lions" where Astartes are "wolves", they possess some jetbikes, terminator armour, Rhino apc (and an antigrav varient), but they act more as individual warriors than units in fact. i mp you a link for a short story.

The design of a sword is canonical: [link] I'll just add some details since now the sword is quite sketchy.

They are minor specialty divisions (for example; guys with flame throwers), usually the Emperor's personal squads are divided upon their 'branch skill', same with Sisters of Silence :)

Is there any scheme of these branches like a structure of a Space Marine Order?

They are more loose because unlike Astartes they don't need orders, they follow their instincts. Constantine and Jenetia are the leaders because they were chosen personally by the Emperor. He saw in them the raw perfection and purity that was needed for their profession. The structure is based more on individual skills, for example the Tauromach are the 'charge line' front troops. Basically the Emperor's guard is what the 300 Spartans were if they all had Superman's powers. Hope this helped a bit ;)

Часть русскоязычных вархаммеристов тебя бы удавили за такое сочетание слов с Вархаммером. ))) Хотя высокие, мускулистые, красивые мужчины в сияющих доспехах и алых плащах - это всегда волнует и горячит. ))
Спасибо!

Fantastic work, as always! The world definitely needs more Custodian Guard. Not gonna lie, I kind of dig them more than the Space Marines. Just... because.....

Thank you very much for the kind words.

боже, какая энергетика...
чем-то напомнили старые советские фильмы о войне...

и вовсе они не толстые... скорее - массивными кажутся, сказывается архаичный дизайн доспехов... а кроме того, где-то видел намек, типа. что без доспехов Кустодес выше и массивней Астартеса в доспехах. А ечли добавить доспехи - то вообще исполины...

и хороший эффект "закадрового присутствия", когда самое главное как бы вне кадра, но догадаться возможно.

Да, я тоже читала что-то такое, что кустодес выше. Может, напишут о них более подробную книжку, а то по сей день как-то маловато всего.

ну... вряд ли будет книга, посвященная исключительно им...
все ж таки имидж надо выдерживать...
а вот понемногу порциями - почему бы и нет...

кстати... а у командира - того, кто без шлема - что же все-таки в руке? Какая-то разновидность силового оружия? Или какой-то техноартефакт?

They include their accomplishements in their name. A very skilled Custodes can have very long names. Amon's full name is at least seventeen-words long, probable more. They have these names carved in their armor. Very well done by the way.

When they are lazy on Terra, they go on Blood Games, in wich they try to infiltrate the palace of Terra and assassinate the Emperor to test its security.

They are said to fight like Lions rather than wolves (the Astartes being the wolves in this metaphore).

Есть такое. Но тут уже ничего не поделаешь - такая конструкция брони. Собсно, толстячками они выглядят главным образом из-за овального/круглого напузника.

Чепуху говорите, батенька. На текущий момент эти доспехи могут претендовать на звание наиболее реалистичных и удобных по дизайну и конструкции.

"Мефистон не может взять плазмаган, потому что это не прописано в правилах и кодексе" - вот это из той же оперы. Я говорю о дизайне и конструкции доспехов. Причем стараюсь говорить на понятном русском, а не игровом слэнге.

all i know extends from the book first heretic. they look up to the emperor as a space marine looks to his primarch. they dont fight like regular space marines. each man is his own army and they look down on spare marines as being inferior
