Guardian Spear

The Guardian Spear is a traditional weapon of the Adeptus Custodes.

Overview

Guardian Spears are halberd-like power weapons[1] so heavy that it would take several ordinary men to lift it[4] and incorporating a ranged weapon at its tip. The weapon's powerful ranged and close combat duality complemented the fighting style of this bodyguard force, giving them good capabilities in both close combat and at a distance. In battle, Custodes spin these weapons in great arcs, slaying enemies with each strike be it in melee combat or from afar.[1]

As symbol of their roles as sentinel, Deathwatch Watch Masters are also given Guardian Spears.[2]
