The Adepta Sororitas Drop Into Warhammer 40,000 This Weekend

November 11, 2019 by brennon

The Adepta Sororitas, the Sisters Of Battle, are going to be coming to Warhammer 40,000 with pre-orders for the new Army Set popping up this coming Saturday from Games Workshop.

Sisters Of Battle Army Set - 40K

The set comes with the new Codex for the Adepta Sororitas alongside a range of new miniatures. Leading the way will be a Cannoness but you'll also have Battle Sisters, Seraphim, Sister Repentia, a Penitent Engine and also a Mistress of Repentance as she would have been known back in the day.

Battle Sister - 40K

I think the miniatures that they have been working on have been great to see come to life. For my part, I think they have managed to take a lot of what made the Sisters Of Battle cool, to begin with whilst also then working in some more modern elements to bring them into the fold alongside sensibilities in society. It just seems like a smart move.

I think you can see that in the Sister Repentia here where they have taken the style of the older models but gone with a different aesthetic. They are still mad looking and could do with a big dose of blood to seriously amp up the brutality levels.

Some of my favourite models are actually based on miniatures which came out not too long ago. Here we have the Seraphim which looks rather badass in my opinion.

I think one of the other things that draws me to the Adepta Sororitas is that they look pretty simple to paint. You add black, play around with some highlighting here and there and a few other block colours and you'd be ready to go. I am very tempted to give them a go in blood-red looking armour though, flipping the scheme to match one of the other Orders out there.

Faith & Fury + Brother Fighting Brother

As well as the pre-orders coming up for Adepta Sororitas we also have the book for Faith & Fury popping up in the mix. This will tell the next chapter of the unfolding Psychic Awakening saga in the grimdark future...

...and one of the key things is that as well as the release of the book they are also taking a moment to release some previously Starter Set bound armies for both the Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines.

Vanguard Space Marines - 40K

This now gives you the options to play as a super stealthy looking Space Marine force led by their Lieutenant In Phobos Armour or perhaps the Chaos Space Marines which fight under the banner of the Master Of Possession.

You might remember these forces popping up before but now they have been given a new lease of life, offering up another avenue into the grimdark future of Warhammer 40,000. I think they actually work quite well as options for getting started, decidedly more than some of the other sets out there.

There is plenty to get excited about if you want to explore Warhammer 40,000 in more detail this weekend...
