Captain-Commander is a title given to those Adeptus Custodes Shield-Captains, who command its Shield Hosts in battle. Though it is more an honorific than an official rank, those Shield-Captains who earn it richly deserve the accolade due to their martial and strategic mastery.
Types of Captain-Commander
- Guardian Captain-Commander - Standard type, these warriors are weapons and Ka'tah masters.
- Allarus Captain-Commander - Heavily armored Allarus Terminators who favor powerful blows that take advantage of their enhanced strength. This makes them excellent assassins, ploughing through enemies to get at their true target
- Vertus Captain-Commander - Jetbike-mounted Vertus Praetors who can strike out on their own as hunters as well as bolster their troops.
