Check Out Games Workshop’s Evocative Adepta Sororitas Artwork

September 3, 2019 by brennon

Games Workshop has been taking some time to delve into the artwork that will be present in the new Adepta Sororitas Codex which will be coming in November. Their first look was at the awesome cover art that will adorn the front of the box.

Sisters Of Battle Art #1 - Games Workshop

This artwork is pretty on the money when it comes to exploring the grimdark nature of Warhammer 40,000. Skulls? Check. Battered and war-weary warrior? Check. Hopeful light shimmering in the darkness? Check. This pretty much gives you a focused look at what the Sisters Of Battle are all about and I like it!

Keeping with the theme of the Adepta Sororitas being a holy order there's also this piece which shows them in procession. This is from the Triumph of Saint Katherine.

Sisters Of Battle Art #3 - Games Workshop

Even as the body of the Saint is taken across the battlefield the sister at the forefront of it has hacked down some heretics and foolish cretins who would dare to desecrate her remains. Again, this feeds nicely into the grimdark nature of Warhammer 40,000 and brings to light that feeling that as a concept it's pretty much Fantasy with laser guns.

Last but not least we have a battle scene because we all like seeing those in our Codexes. This one shows the Adepta Sororitas going up against the T'au as they seek to take control of an Imperial world.

Sisters Of Battle Art #2 - Games Workshop

It's cool to see the Sister Repentia doing their thing, hacking their way through Fire Warriors whilst a band of Sisters Of Battle march forth with bolters hot.

I am consistently tempted by Warhammer 40,000 armies but none of them has really got me hooked just yet. Adepta Sororitas might change that.

What do you think?
