Here are a few pics of my new Custodes army that I will be using the GK rules with when they come out... Ill be doing updates on them as I do it.  but for now here they are unpainted...

Here is the squad facing at them.  The guy without the shield is the centurion and squad leader, I wanted his pose and weapon to look a little different, I might give him a shield on his back or something later.
 The "spears," are actually High Elf Phoenix Guard spears, I still have to put the bolter into the spear and all that stuff.

This is a good shot of the shields and such, I need to put them on bigger bases though.


  1. I've just recieved some of these minis myself, and they're just pure quality!

    I look forward to seeing them painted!

  2. Cant wait to see them painted Duke!

    -Your Pal,

  3. Those minis are great looking. Where did they come from?

  4. Very cool. Once I saw your banner a little bit ago, I started looking for ways to convert these guys. These are a very amazing looking conversion compared to most I've seen. I can't wait to see the end result.

  5. I started painting one of them last night and TBH, I don't 100% like how the Spears have come out. I almost like the Centurions sprear best which is a Thunder Hammer Handle with the Halberd head on it.

    What do you guys think, keep them as is? or make them like the Centurions spear?


  6. My UNIQUELY styled Wallpapers. During some ten years, I have developed an extremely complex and unimitable technique that should carry some interest of anyone pursuing a serious artistic ambition and expertise. And it's quantity as well: by now close to 3 000 wallpapers, all created by me. Why not tune in on my rapidly growing art blog? Its Copyright Anyone, as it SHOULD be for this genre!

    And I write poetry in several languages:


    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    Is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.

    Single Swingle


    Casualidad sopla la sangre
    de alguno señor desconocido
    durante los pocos restantes
    momentos del resplandor de faroles

    que se vislumbran tras el follaje
    flameando de las obsesiónes
    igual efimero como gotas
    del cinzano de la soledad –

    En aquel tiempo me levanta
    dentro uno incidente avejentado
    que en seguida palidece
    al camouflaje de abstraccion;

    chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
    ojos significan aún; con todo
    el sueño que hube evacuado
    tu escudriñas nuevamente.

    My Spanish poetry!

    Das Leben dergleichen Halbfaßung
    der Welt wahr immer nicht wahr,
    nicht wahr? Die fristlos Entlaßung
    am Ende wird kaum wunderbar.

    So laßen uns Menschlingen viele
    besonders besonnene zum
    Zeitweilegem Zeiten als Ziele
    des Lebens halbfaßen darum.

    Fremde Gedichte


    Time travel is by up to date confused "expertise" considered logically impossible albeit physically allowed for by Einstein's equations, as Gödel pointed out. Strange fallacy! The Guy travelling "backwards" in his time machine immediately goes into "hypertime", so to speak, and what was "time" is simply one more spatial dimension. No logical problem whatever; I utterly fail to see, even, how this awful misconception could persist for about a century. OK, on return he happened to crash into my poor would be dad, so what? This calamity occurring somewhere in Universe imperceivable to me, the Flatlander. Etc. Do you follow? You should.

    My philosophy:



    And: reciprocity. You do me a favor promoting your blog on mine!

  7. First of all, who the hell is Kraxpelax, and why is he posting poetry on this blog??

    Now on to buisness,
    Duke, where did you get these mini's?
    I look forward to seeing more of this army, hades only knows how much we hear you talk about this, haha.

  8. I could be wrong, but I think I remember hearing about Scibor Miniatures selling a Roman-like unit which I believe is what these guys are made from.
    Sci-Fi Legionaries or something of the sort.
