Guardian Custodians are the elite of the Cha'Los Guardian levies. Better trained, better equipped and near constantly at war, the Guardian Custodians are a common sight whether the Cha'Los Eldar have influence.

Tasked with not only attacking the enemy, Custodians are also protectors of the realms of the Cha'Los Eldar, ensuring that every entry and exit point to the Webway is secured against those that seek harm to the Eldar people.

Custodians are armed with the traditional shuirken catapult although they may take to the field of battle with shuriken pistol and close combat weapons as the nessecarity of warfare dictates and they may or may not be joined by a support platform.
