New Battle Sisters Repent & Bring Death To Their Enemies

July 23, 2019 by brennon

Games Workshop is continuing their peek into what's coming for the Sisters Of Battle/Adepta Sororitas. This time around we got a look at the new Sisters Repentia, battle-scarred and ready to show their Faith in The Emperor during games of Warhammer 40,000.

Sister Repentia #1 - Games Workshop

The Sisters Repentia are Battle Sisters who have shown that they cannot live up to the stringent tenants of their order. As punishment, they have to wash clean their sins in the blood of their enemies, stripped of their armour and weapons and instead gifted a chainsword and the order to go out and slay as many heretics as they possibly can. Well, that sounds very grimdark to me.

The plastic kits are looking pretty stunning I have to say, packed with movement and dynamism. I love that the brutal conditions of their repentance are shown on their skin in the form of numerous scars and the fluttering edicts and prayers across their kit so their continued devotion to The Emperor even in the midst of all that bloodshed.

Sister Repentia #3 - Games Workshop

Much like with the previous previews for the new Battle Sisters I would imagine that these miniatures will pretty much have one pose when it comes to putting them together. Still, with some inventive painting and of course the good ol' bitz box you will have no problem tweaking them to look more individual.

It's also good to see that even in the grimdark future, when you've been stripped of your armour and asked to repent, they still give you a pair of shoes just so you don't hurt your feet! That would probably be the one thing I'd change here as otherwise, I'm loving the look of these models.

It is becoming very hard to convince myself that when these are released I won't immediately buy a set and start thinking about Kill Team.

What do you make of the newest preview?
