A Custodian Wardens Shield-Captain

Custodian Wardens are elite warriors within the Adeptus Custodes.

Overview

Each Warden has at least five centuries of experience overseeing the defence of Terra. The Wardens are known amongst their comrades as level-headed and endlessly patient watchmen. Upon accepting the robes that mark their station they swear binding oaths to fight as immovable sentinels, a living fortress of auramite and sinew that no foe will ever breach. Each Warden’s oaths are personal, written by the Custodian himself after a full year’s contemplation sat in meditation upon the precipitous ledges of the Gallowtower. To break their vows would be worse than death to these warriors, and their determination to uphold them bolsters their already formidable wills to something of truly frightening intensity.[3a]

Equipped with Guardian Spears or Castellan Axes, their binding oaths of service allow them to resist wounds that would lay even another Custodian low.[1][2][3a]
