Horus Heresy Review: Legio Custodes Aquilon Terminator Squad

Custodes in terminator armour. They are rare, given that the Aquilon pattern was adapted for the Custodes from the cataphractii pattern to bear extra weight. They find use in Zone Mortalis type settings where the extra armour comes in very handy.

The ability to charge with hammer of wrath after rapid firing their weapons thanks to the Aquilon armour is a strong ability that is not found in too many other places in the 30k era.

With the stat line of the Custodes, these guys can take on most things in the game (not all, but certainly many) and come out on top if positioned and played well.

There's not too many weaknesses here, but do look out for instant death weapons and vindicator shots that can ruin your day.

I really like the infernus fire pike as the optional weapon here, and the teleport transponders are a good bet as well.

3 Terminators, 3 fire pikes, 3 transponders (285 points).
This is a "termicide" squad for the custodes. Teleport in, flame everything and then try not to die in subsequent turns.

5 Terminators, 1 fire pike (390 points).
This would be my baseline unit. Take a transport as required.
