Sisters of Battle Heads
The Sisters of Battle are a varied force, with members hailing from across the galaxy in pursuit of holy war. This time around, we’ve been able to represent that with a range of characterful new faces you’ll be able to include in your army.
If you’re a die-hard Adepta Sororitas fan with an army ready and waiting to go for the new edition, we’ve got even more exciting news. We want to nail every aspect of this release, from models to rules – and to do that, we’re asking for the help of the biggest, best playtesting group in the world.
This year’s Chapter Approved will feature a beta codex for the Adepta Sororitas – and we’re inviting you to try it out. You’ll have access to a huge pool of units, Stratagems, Relics and Warlord Traits to represent the orders of the Adepta Sororitas in your games – and your feedback on how you find them will help us make the final codex as awesome as it can possibly be.
SOB BETA, Hell yea !
Sister of Battles weapons !
Hello again !!
After looking at the first of the new generation of Adepta Sororitas at AdeptiCon, today we’re previewing some early images as well as exploring how our miniatures designers have brought this iconic range to life.
The flamer and bolter are classic weapons both of the Sisters of Battle and the Imperium itself, and the design team wanted to make sure that these armaments truly suited those wielding them.
Based on the iconic original bolter, the weapons borne by the Sisters of Battle have been designed to be employed by humans. The weapons carried by the Emperor’s most devout warriors are as much ritual implements as they are weapons of war, and so we’ve squeezed all sorts of ornate detail into them, pushing our cutting-edge technology to the limit to make sure that every part of the new Battle Sisters tells a story.
Take their bolters – just as the bolt rifles wielded by the Primaris Space Marines were based on the iconic Godwyn-pattern, so too are the new Sisters of Battle bolters.
There are a bunch of distinct bolt weapons coming out, too – here are just some of them:
Our designers have been pushing the design of the Sisters of Battle further than ever before – while you’ll recognise their classic armour and weapons, look closer and you’ll pick up a wealth of detail we could previously only explore in art, like the reverential engravings on each shell of this heavy bolter:
And, of course, you’ll be getting flamers – lots and lots of flamers. It is, after all, the ideal heretic-purging weapon. Based again on the iconic Sisters of Battle flamer, these have been upgraded with a more ornate muzzle:
For those who escape your wrath at range, there are plenty of close combat weapons on the way too, again based on classic designs and upgraded with new detail:
We’ll have more news on the Sisters of Battle in future studio previews, so watch this space…
