It is well known across the Imperium that it is the duty of the Adeptus Arbites to uphold the Emperor’s Law. However within the confines of the Imperial Palace there is an arm of the Adeptus Custodes, called the Emperor’s Judges, dedicated to upholding the Law inside it’s walls. Each one of these Custodians is recruited and trained for 150 years in a wing of the palace dubbed the Academy of Law, where a single mistake in training spells expulsion back into the ranks of the Custodian Guard.
Upon completion of training their armor is coloured according to an ancient text discovered on Holy Terra depicting the greatest police force Terra had ever seen. They are also instructed to take from these pages a new name for themselves which they may keep until death. The authority of the Judges in the Imperium is absolute, and none but the Emperor himself is free from Judgement should they suspect any lawbreaking.
As a result of the accord between Gulliman and Valoris the Judges were sent out from Terra to bring Justice to whoever they came across, leaving only a skeleton crew behind in the Imperial Palace. Flying around the galaxy in their ship, The Halls of Justice, the Judges have found themselves in the Dovar sector orbiting an unfamiliar planet.
After consulting with his Council of Five, Chief Judge Fargo has decided to send Senior Judge Griffin and 7 of his best Street Judges down to the planet to investigate, unsuspecting of the trials that lay before them…
So as you’ve probably guessed I’m a massive Judge Dredd fan. I also love the new Custodes models so I’ve decided to combine the two. Here’s some pics.
As you can see I’ve edited the actual models a bit, in that I’ve taken the helmet plumes and the leg side plates off as I didn’t feel they really fit with the theme I was going for.
Army List is:
HQ – Senior Judge Griffin – Shield Captain, Castellan Axe, Misericordia.
Street Judge Team 1 – Judges Logan, Plaski, Kruger and Quimby – 4x Custodian Guard, Guardian Spears
Street Judge Team 2 – Judges Tulk, Sola and Rourke – 3x Custodian Guard, Guardian Spears.
There will be a battle report on the first mission when I get around to playing it.
