A High Lord Of Terra Joins The Fray In Warhammer 40K

May 5, 2021 by brennon

We had another evening of previews from the folks at Games Workshop last night. It wasn't quite as impressive as the Monday preview for Warhammer Age Of Sigmar but we did get a little peek at a few new miniatures for the Adepta Sororitas of Warhammer 40,000.

Morvenn Vahl was the star of the show, a new High Lord Of Terra that has been recently promoted to a position of power. She holds the rank of Abbess Sanctorum Of The Adepta Sororitas and was seen as simply their figurehead and representative amongst the other High Lords. Turns out Vahl wasn't going to be pushed around and unlike many of her fellow High Lords, she is leading from the front, clad in her specially customised Paragon Warsuit.

Able to hold her own against some of the biggest and nastiest enemies that the grimdark future can throw at her, Morvenn Vahl is a rather kickass character. I do really like the miniature, armed with the powerful Lance Of Illumination and clad in her armour, Purgator Mirabilis. The pose looks commanding and deadly and you could see her knocking seven shades out of pretty much any daemon that gets in her way.

Talking of the Paragon Warsuits, we did also get another look at them as part of the reveal. Nothing new here really but I do think that they are going to be awesome when used alongside Morvenn Vahl as an elite bodyguard.

As a kind of halfway house between power armour and a walker suit, I think that these new Sisters Of Battle are looking very "rad" as the kids would say. I imagine with a bit of work you could change their poses and add more motion into the mix but otherwise, the idea of a bit mech suit to enhance your abilities seems amazing.

New Characters & Units

We also got a better look at a couple of characters with Aestred Thurga & Agathae Dolan.

Aestred carries the much-loved Auto-Tapestry Of The Emperor’s Judgement and carries the faith of The Emperor into battle alongside her fellow Sisters. Agathae Dolan is also there to help buff your Sisters units on the tabletop. When she plants her own standard she is able to fire other Battle Sisters up to greater feats. These new miniatures, in particular, are a good option for those who want to make a bespoke Crusade force for the Adepta Sororitas.

Those bespoke rules for running the Adepta Sororitas in Crusade games are included as part of the new Codex which you can see below.

Much like the other new Codexes, this one adds in all of the new units that have been previewed over the last few weeks and months. It also tweaks weapons, points values and the way that you configure your armies, regardless of the way you like to play.

The Book Of Fire

In a slightly less exciting addition, we also got told about a new book in the War Zone Charadon series. The Book Of Fire follows Typhus' continued invasion of the system and the battle for Metallica and other worlds.

As well as the plans Typhus has laid out before him, we also have Be'lakor looking to plot and scheme. He will now come with rules for mixing together Chaos Space Marine and Daemon armies into one big fighting force. It looks like the mighty Daemon Prince isn't content on just ruling The Mortal Realms.

You'll be able to find more of the nitty-gritty on all of these previews HERE. There are a few more images of the Battle Sisters we've spied before and a new terrain set. It's not the most interesting of Warhammer 40,000 previews in all honesty. I was really hoping to see the new Orks early in the week! I guess we'll wait until Friday...

Are you going to be diving into Warhammer 40,000?
