[Warhammer-Community]Adeptus Custodes: Forge World Beta Rules and Codex FAQ

1 post in this topic


Since the release of Codex: Adeptus Custodes, many of you have been asking about getting rules for bringing your favourite models from Forge World’s Legio Custodes range into your games of Warhammer 40,000. Today, we’re happy to confirm that the Adeptus Custodes have been earmarked for being featured in a future volume of Imperial Armour – and what’s more, we’re making some of the experimental, non-final rules from this book available ahead of time to allow you to jump in right away, as well as helping us test them out before they’re full released.


Today, we’re making preliminary, beta rules available for the following models – if your favourites aren’t here, worry not! This is just a sample of what we’ll be eventually releasing rules for in Warhammer 40,000:

  • The Caladius Grav-tank, precursor to the popular Sicaran Battle Tank, and frontline battle tank of the Legio Custodes.
  • The Coronus Grav-carrier, a massive transport capable of traversing even the most hostile of battlefields.
  • The Contemptor-Achillus Dreadnought, a close combat pattern of the popular Contemptor, armed with a Dreadnought-sized version of the guardian spear!
  • The Contemptor-Exemplar, designed to represent the unique weapons available to the Adeptus Custodes.


These rules aren’t currently final, and while we’ve provided points values, they’re not intended for use in a competitive setting. We’d recommend checking with your opponent before using them in your games in their current state. Importantly, we want to hear from you how they play. Don’t feel strong enough? Let us know! Over-performing against certain armies? Just tell us! We’re hoping that with your help, we’ll be able to ensure that when we finally release complete rules for the Adeptus Custodes in an Imperial Armour book, they’ll be as balanced and as fun as possible.


Send your feedback to us to forgeworld@gwplc.com using the following format. We’re anticipating a large volume of feedback, and therefore we won’t be able to accept any feedback that doesn’t follow these guidelines:

Please make sure that you use the subject line “FWCUSTODES” and note that you must use the headers below to provide us with your feedback. When writing any feedback email, please repeat the same format for each individual unit, item of wargear or ability you wish to discuss.

  • The unit’s datasheet which this feedback refers to
  • The number of games played using this unit and faction keywords used in these games
  • The item of wargear or ability to which this feedback relates
  • Suggestions relating to the above unit’s wargear or ability and the rationale for these
  • Suggestions regarding the points values for the unit and its abilities 

We won’t be able to reply to each email individually but rest assured that your feedback will be considered when writing the final version of these rules. We’re always looking out for ways to make your hobby better, and if there are any other models or ranges you want to see rules for, let us know! While some miniatures are intended for play in the 31st Millennium by design, we reckon there are still plenty of opportunities to bring some relics of the past into your games in the Dark Imperium – so let us know!


Balance, of course, is a constant process, and as part of our ongoing commitment to making sure your games of Warhammer 40,000 run smoothly and are as fun as they can possibly be, we’re releasing an FAQ today designed to cover your most frequently asked questions about Codex: Adeptus Custodes. You can download it on the FAQs page.
