Games Workshop are keeping up the previews for Warhammer 40,000 to this week as they look to some new options for the Adepta Sororitas and what awaits in the unfolding Psychic Awakening for the grimdark future.

So yes, to kick things off we've got a look at two of the new tanks being fashioned by the foundries of the Imperium so that the Adepta Sororitas has some heavy support on the battlefield. Fans of these warrior nuns will know these vehicles well but here we have the Exorcist which brings a whole new meaning to the idea of killer music.

Exorcist - Warhammer 40K

The Exorcist and pretty much everything from the Adepta Sororitas range is very 'metal' and pushes everything to that next level. I suppose if you're a Battle Sister rushing towards the enemy having a rolling cathedral next to you blasting out litanies and explosives is going to be quite inspiring.

The Exorcist is then partnered alongside the Immolator which does exactly what it says on the tin. Why leave your enemies a chance to get up when you could dose them in fire and watch them crackle and pop on the battlefield?

It looks like this will be based on the same kit as the Exorcist and I would imagine you'll have the choice of building one or the other of these vehicles from the same kit. It does look very cool although I do wonder how easy it is to spot your enemies when you've got a big stained 'glass' window in front of you.

Faith & Fury Clash

As well as this preview of what's coming on the horizon for the Adepta Sororitas we also have a look at a new book which continues the story of the Psychic Awakening. Faith & Fury will bring the next chapter of this galaxy-spanning narrative to the tabletop alongside new rules too.

Faith & Fury - Warhammer 40K

Inside you'll find new rules for the Black Templars, Night Lords, Alpha Legion, World Eaters, Emperor’s Children, Iron Warriors and Word Bearers. If I was a Black Templar I'd be very worried that suddenly I was being ganged up on!

With a rise in Chaos cults across the Imperium this new book sees the forces of the Adeptus Astartes going up against massing Heretic Astartes foes. Will the Black Templars have the aid they need or indeed enough inner faith to hold back the tide?

Hoping to overthrow the forces of the Imperium we will be seeing a new miniature take shape in the form of this updated Chaos Sorcerer.

This new plastic model takes lots of cues from the older models, especially with his staff and backpack. You'll also note he is on the cover of the new book so perhaps he has a role to play in the unfolding Chaos (hah) that is befalling the Imperium.

The Lord Of Death Returns

Finally, to wrap things up for Warhammer 40,000 we also got a teaser trailer for another hero who is getting updated to take part in the Psychic Awakening.

Yeah boi! The Chief Librarian and badass of the Blood Angels is coming to the table with a bone to pick with these Chaos scumbags who have decided to upset his carefully planned chill time and haircare regime. It's time for the blond bombshell to flex his psychic muscles.

Darkness In The Underhive

As well as all of this goodness for Warhammer 40,000 we also got a peek at what's coming next week. Necromunda gets even darker and slick with blood as the Corpse Grinder Cult clashes with the Palanite Enforcers in Dark Uprising.

Dark Uprising - Necromunda

The set comes with the two forces, all the cards you need, a big mat to play on and the 3D terrain that you see here from the Zone Mortalis range. This seems like a damn fine way for you to get into Necromunda with a new evil cult and a set of square-jawed space jocks.

A new book is also coming out to support the Corpse Grinder Cult, The Book Of Ruin. How aptly named...

The Book Of Ruin - Necromunda

Inside here you'll find rules for the Corpse Grinders plus Helot Chaos Cults and also Genestealer Cults. New scenarios, new Hired Guns and ways to corrupt your own gang are in here too which start to widen the breadth of narrative opportunities in this game.

I'm sure cool new toys to blow away your friends is nice but I think the real focus here should be on the cool stories you can build in Necromunda. The game isn't really about just winning or losing, it's about telling a good tale, weaving a narrative into your gameplay and almost taking on the character of your gang and the individuals that make it tick.

Are you going to be snapping up some of these new goodies?
