Default Legio Custodes Reboot

I've been away from forums for a long 'ole time now. I've just been plugging away slowly but surely at what I do.

At the moment I'm part way through a big custom Legio Custodes project for a friend, consisting of fully sculpted Custodes - based 100% off the artwork, as much as we can anyway.

I'm making them in a kind of sprue fashion so that I can build and customise as many as I want without having to chop and change limbs as you would if it were just a normal set of Space Marines legs, for example.

As it stands, I've only got one shoulder pad, a little bit on the groin, two kneecaps, petruges (possibly), arms and the Guardian Spear to go...though when you put it like that it sounds like a lot of work...drat.

Anyway, tonight's offering is the completed left shoulder pad. I'll pop the torso on tomorrow, if I remember.







It's built up from a standard marine shoulder pad, I think it's roughly Terminator size now - God knows what they'll end up like if I'm asked to do Terminators...

So that's complete, unless anybody has any suggestions/can pick out any flaws.

Who knows, in a month or two when it's all done and cast, there may even be some paint on this thread :O

Come take a look at my work:
The Bloody Twelfth, The Lords of the Sands

Luna Wolves 14th Company

For my 14th Company Novella

Grimdark Orks


I do commissions, email/pm me:

I always look to improve, as such I always look for ways other people can improve and what elements are good already, please bear that in mind if you ever think any of my comments are overly critical: it's not personal!
Strive for excellence in all that you do.

I'm interested to see how this will turn out. It's also made me realise that FW has never made custodes models...which is surprising

You know once you're balls deep into this project, forge world will release custodes miniatures just to torment your soul

Keeping an eye on this, looks promising.

@Medic Marine - Thanks Let's hope it stays that way
@Oldman78 - Let's just say that you'll hear me complaining from wherever in the universe you live. Or you'll read about me in an obituary somewhere...

@Kharn The Complainer - Ye, it's one of the thing's that's surprised me too, even if it was just in an event only style release.

There's more, for once it appears I'm keeping to a schedule (ish)!

Here is the completed plate/torso for the Custodes:

(photo dump warning)



We veered away from the traditional Crosses that are on the gorgets of most of the artwork. For one they're a massive pain to do, squares and curves and symmetry all add up to a nightmare for poor old me.








For the back I've tried to make it look a bit like a Terminator's but on a smaller scale as if the armour itself is far more advanced, as one would expect of the Emperor's bodyguard. There was also the practical element - capes will be a lot easier for me to do without a power armour-esqe backpack.




Hope you like it, I know my mate's quite please so far

As ever, any comments/suggestions/criticism is more than welcome.

Oh my! This is absolutely amazing. Can you post the artwork you're basing this work off? Seriously this is inspiring, specially because I went to a 'real' art supply store for the first time in eons it seems and found some really useful looking sculpting tools. Stoked to get adventurous with modelling.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
