Army List Thoughts

It has 4 Command points, which is not a lot for how hungry Custodes are for command points, and it is a Custodes list with Ultramarine allies, not the other way around! 

With 9 units, I believe I need 5 of them to start on the table, and that brings us to a starting table force of:

Tigurius, Sternguard Veteran Squad, Sicaran Battle Tank, Mortis Contemptor and the Custodian Guard. 

This allows me to deep strike the Shield Captain, Jetbikes (for 1CP), Allarus Terminators & Reivers. 

All up it means i can put 4 units in your deployment zone turn 1, 5 if I combat squad the Reivers - although that pushes up my drops. The other point is it does mean I am dropping my Warlord into your face, potentially giving away an easy Kill point... but with smart targeting I am hopeful that I can also get your Warlord on the drop... maybe!

With smart CP usage it allows me a wide range of options and should allow me to really close the range with the things that can threaten me. 

Its an aggressive list, and if you get deployment wrong I think it will struggle, but it is dropping 35 models on the table - more than my GT list did, and without as many points tied up in any one unit (like the Spartan!).
