On the 23rd and 24th February, Games Workshop will be hosting the annual Black Library Celebrations. Fall into the fiction of the Warhammer worlds, and attend the events this weekend to pick up plenty of brilliant books and gaming goodies!


Among the many releases, this weekend will see Rachel Harrison's new novel Honourbound hit the shelvesbringing the introduction of Commissar Severina Raine and her soldiers to long-form fiction (the fearless leader has already featured in several of Harrison's short fiction stories).

Uncompromising and fierce, Commissar Severina Raine has always served the Imperium with the utmost distinction. Attached to the Eleventh Antari Rifles, she instills order and courage in the face of utter horror. The Chaos cult, the Sighted, have swept throughout the Bale Stars and a shadow has fallen across its benighted worlds. A great campaign led by the vaunted hero Lord-General Militant Alar Serek is underway to free the system from tyranny and enslavement but the price of victory must be paid in blood. But what secrets do the Sighted harbour, secrets that might cast a light onto Raine’s own troubled past? Only by embracing her duty and staying true to her belief in the Imperium and the commissar’s creed can she hope to survive this crucible, but even then will that be enough?

To celebrate this release, Games Workshop have produced a resin Citadel model of the leader, along with a series of characterful rules which reflect her unique command style and armaments.


You can get a closer look at her datasheet here. Commissar Severina Raine can also be used in Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team through a datasheet printed in White Dwarf's February issue, currently on shelves now.


Honourbound and Commissar Severina Raine will both be available to pick up from the Black Library Celebration launch this weekend!
