New Plastic Sisters Of Battle & Inquisitorial Henchmen On The Way For 40K [Updated]

December 20, 2016 by brennon

Games Workshop seems to be bringing some plastic Adeptas Sororitas to the tabletop in the new year alongside some additional Inquisitorial henchmen to build up a bank of characters based on the agents of the Imperium. You can see the leaks for Warhammer 40,000 HERE

Sisters Of Battle

The image that we’ve seen so far reveals a unit of Seraphim in their golden armour with bright white wings behind them. It looks like they’ve taken on some of the skills they used when putting together the Prosecutors for Age of Sigmar and have used them for these new miniatures.

Still, as some people have pointed out they are going to be pretty to look at but hell to play with on the tabletop.

Update: Here is a much better picture of Saint Celestine and the Geminae Superia…

This all is joined by news of just what is around the corner for the world of Warhammer 40,000 as we look to the Fall Of Cadia (trailer above).

“The Eye of Terror is about to open and unleash a tide of darkness, Daemons and traitors into an already beset Imperium. Against the unified might of the Traitor Legions stand the heroes of the Cadian Gate, who will stop at nothing to drive back the Gathering Storm.

The scene is set for the most epic narrative in the history of the 41st Millennium – a fitting celebration of 30 years of Warhammer 40,000 and a great way to kick off the next 30 years of grim darkness in the far future.”

This does sound like something quite cataclysmic and you can keep an eye on the Warhammer Community for more over the next few weeks.

Inquisitorial Retinue

It looks like the Sisters Of Battle are going to be fighting alongside a plethora of new units from the darker side of the Imperium. Another image showed off a Female Inquisitor/Witch Hunter.and a Magos. If anyone has played the Dark Heresy role-playing game you can see where this is going…

One would assume that as part of a larger force going forward the Sisters Of Battle will be the supporting cast for a range of new Imperial characters on the tabletop. This feeds much more into the compartmentalised and ‘themed’ way Games Workshop are doing lists now.

Since we’ve seen these plastic Seraphim along Celestine it would make sense that we’re going to see some core troops soon too one would hope. How they turn out…we’ll have to wait and see.

Update: As with Celestine we also now have better images of Inquisitor Greyfax…

…and Belisarius Cawl who is the size of a Carnifex!

One hopes that we’re going to see a lot more supporting this. It would seem right that Celestine is followed into battle by her own warriors as well as the Astra Militarum when defending Cadia from the forces of Chaos.
