Battle Sisters, Flyers & Warhammer Animations At 40K Open Day

December 2, 2019 by brennon

Games Workshop has been showing off lots of goodies from the Warhammer 40,000 Open Day that dropped over the past few days. We start with a look at some goodness for the Adepta Sororitas as they look ahead to new releases to bolster their ranks.

The Triumph Of Saint Katherine - 40K

Now that is a rather impressive piece that has been added into the mix based on some wonderful artwork from the new Adepta Sororitas Codex. It shows these deadly Battle Sisters taking the body of one of their fallen Sisters through the streets, holding off all those that would seek to despoil such a devout scene. Here's a neat video they introduced into the mix...

I am really liking where things are going for the Adepta Sororitas and this extends to some of their additional units. Here we have a peek at the Multipart Sister Repentia squad which will be dropping soon.

Repentia Kit - 40K

The models, which we first saw as part of the limited edition set, are going to be available with all sorts of additional pose options, heads, accessories and more. I think these ladies need a good dose of blood across their bodies to show the brutal situations that they have found themselves in. You can see more of the models with some of those cool masks here.

The fluttering pennants and such are a nice addition into the mix and there are a few cool bionic thrown into the mix too. This shows that even though these Sisters have been sent into battle without armour they're always retrofitted with something to get them back into the fighting so they can keep...repenting I guess?

Adeptus Mechanicus Flyers

As well as the Battle Sisters there was also a look at a new flyer for the Mechanicus force. This Archaeopter is going to be soaring into the mix with its rather fascinating and Gothic design. I love the look of it and you could imagine unarmed versions of these fluttering across different worlds.

Archaeopter #1 - 40K

You can get a better look at some of the details here which certainly give you an interesting peek as to the way this has been put together. The Adeptus Mechanicus has created lots of fascinating vehicles and such which give us another look at the world of Warhammer 40,000.

Archaeopter #2 - 40K

As with the first peek that we got from this round of previews there is also a preview video for this particular model too...

It will be fascinating to see if we get anything else a little more esoteric for the other factions in the world of Warhammer 40,000 to match something like this.

Psychic Awakening & Animations

We finish things off for this peek into the future for Warhammer 40,000 with a look at what's coming up next for the Psychic Awakening series.

Psychic Awakening Books - 40K

New books, new miniatures, new secrets uncovered and more. Here is the trailer they put together for this particular storyline...

There's a lot of stuff coming our way and I am fascinated to see how the T'Au get added into the mix alongside what the Saga Of The Beast brings to the fore. I really hope we're going to see a mighty clash between the Space Wolves and something monstrous.

Finally, we also got a sneak peek at some of the animation work going on in the background.

I am looking forward to this suite of options. Maybe we're going to see a collection of stories a little like with Love, Death & Robots where there will be a selection of shorts bound together into a series.

What do you think of the Warhammer 40,000 previews?
