Battle Sister Rhinos & A Glimpse Of Drukhari In New 40K Previews

September 17, 2019 by brennon

Games Workshop is keeping up the previews for the world of Warhammer 40,000 as they showed off some more harrowing previews of what lies ahead for the Psychic Awakening campaign launching soon. First up we got this new prophecy...

Psychic Awakening Prophecy - Games Workshop

So yep, it seems like Slannesh is going to be big element of how this is all going to unfold. The Aeldari seem pretty shaken by something in the darkness and they don't normally get frazzled about much. It will be very interesting to see if the Aeldari and Drukhari (Dark Eldar) are going to be able to put aside their differences and work together against the larger threat.

Well, I would say yes but this fellow from Incubi temple would say otherwise.

Klaivex - Games Workshop

This is the new plastic Klaivex, the leader of a pack of Incubi, who will be getting stuck into the fighting and taking on Aeldari Aspect Warriors with ease. Armed with a cruel demi-klaive the Klaivex can either use this as a double-ended weapon or break apart the weapon to fight in a whirling tornado of blades.

You will also see that is festooned in trophies taken from fallen Aeldari. Those ain't brooches he's wearing but shattered spirit stones he has taken from his victims, a reminder of how deadly he is and the cruelty and pain he inflicts on his kin.

Maybe we'll see this fellow joining the cult of Ynnead and working to raise up their new God in hopes of dashing Slaanesh against the rocks?

Battle Sister Transport Options

As well as the new peek at what's coming for the Drukhari we also had some peeks at the transport options for the Adepta Sororitas. They showed off two different ways to assemble your Rhino.

Sisters Of Battle Rhino #1 - Games Workshop

The Rhino can be armed and armoured in different ways with a couple of weapon options available to add to the top.

Sisters Of Battle Rhino #2 - Games Workshop

In traditional fashion, you can decide to arm your Rhino with a hunter-killer missile for dealing with that dangerous enemy threat and either have the pintle-mounted storm bolter controlled by a Battle Sister or hanging unmanned as the troops stay hidden within the vehicle.

One cool thing to note is how covered in additional accessories this Rhino is. I love the addition of the panels on the sides bearing the great I and the relic weapon strapped to the top as both a token of protection and a weapon to use if the enemy gets too close.

There is even a half-covered skull housed at the back of the vehicle, a martyr who gave her life and now offers protection to her Battle Sisters even in death.

Are you liking the look of these new goodies for Warhammer 40,000?
