The Sagittarum Guards are the Golden Gods' equivalent of the Space Marine Tactical Squad...but better at every single way, seriously they are the listed as Heavy Support instead. They are the Dakka version of the Custodian Guard's Choppy version and are thus played differently. They are armed with the Adrastus bolt calivers which is like a Heavy Bolter making love with a Necron Gauss cannon - which sounds cheesy, except for the fact that their performance on the tabletop is surprisingly underwhelming, especially when compared to basic Custodes armed with Adrathic Destructors. They have the exact same price, while the basic Custodes are armed with Power Weapons (and the Sagittarum do not) making them a joke if they're ever fought in melee.
Though less common within the ranks of the Legio Custodes than their peers, these golden lubes of anal penetration who comprise the Sagittarum Guard Sodalities nevertheless fulfill a number of vital roles within the Legio's order of battle. As you may already know, their art of war is focused more on slaying the foe and filling them up with holes and atomic rounds at a distance and upon the devastating application of firepower on the battlefield.
In addition to this, the Sagittarum have entered legend as the hawk-sighted sentries of the Terran walls, charged with vigilance over the external border of the Imperial Palace in ready anticipation of smacking some fool. Through decades of duty, their ability to recall movement patterns, faces and speech even years after the original incident was honed even more so than that of their peers, and as such their enhanced ability to analyst crowds for anticipated response grew in import upon the battlefields of the Great Crusade.
The oversight cultivated on the walls of the Imperial palace served to ensure that their presence among the detachments of the Emperor's guard was tailored to precisely excise the greatest threat of the enemy assault, annihilating it in the actinic fire of weapons the likes of which had not been seen in such concentration since the Dark Age of Technology.
