Adeptus Custodes Hobby Update. Valoris, Virtus Praetors and Custodian Guard Pictures.

Excuse me it’s been a while since I did a battle report but I soon discovered with the new codex that… there’s a lot to discover! In this article I will share some of my early findings (positives and negatives) while sprinkling in some various shots of games (not just my own.) I’ve been playing a lot of games whenever
