Hello all,
legio custodes - The Immortal Guardians - The Emperior 's bodyguard

from the record of The Horus Heresy, The Legio Custodes are the emperior's personal army. They are stronger than space marines (maybe even grey knights).

so after reading through some books and story on Legio Custodes, i think they are very interesting so i decided to start my own legio custodes.

converted a few custodians guards and a chaplain



thanks for looking

Say, are we influenced by Dave Taylor's conversion article on the Custodes, perhaps? Especially the Chappie looks very much alike that in the article. I like them, you've managed to get a uniform look, while giving them individuality in the same time.

Promise me one thing, though. Clean up the mouldlines. Please.

Look up Jakob Nielsen's work for additional inspiration, I believe he did a DAMN good work on a Legio Custodes or Astartes

I like these, they are going to be hella fun to paint as long as you don't just paint them all with metalics. May I suggest a leprous brown base coat and then highlighting up from there for the gold?

They are looking great Tensions. Great conversion work, especially on the Chaplain, I like his backpack. The Costodes are looking pretty good too. I am looking forward to seeing some more updates.
