Codex: Imperial Agents $40

60030108010_imperialagentscodexeng01

While the Imperium draws great advantage from the unbelievable weight of manpower it can bring to bear, the diversity of its military is its greatest strength. Many, many esoteric factions are expected to answer the call to protect humanity, from the arcane Adeptus Mechanicus, to the merciless, psychically-gifted Grey Knights and all in between.

60030108010_imperialagentscodexeng03

The forces of the Imperium are myriad and distinct, but all follow the Emperor’s divine will – through this common goal, they strive to ensure the continued if fraught survival of Mankind.

60040181209_tyrantofthehollowworldsa5hbeng01

The Imperium fights a constant battle to defend itself from its many enemies, but few are as deadly or as relentless as the Chaos Space Marines.

With neither side prepared to withdraw nor concede defeat, the battle spirals out of control – will the Hollow Worlds be destroyed by the forces of destruction that have been unleashed?

The Dawnspire stands at the edge of the Transient Isles. Immense, drifting islands of black stone hanging in the air above an azure sea, they were once the subject of foul sorceries, a powerful Chaos wizard seeking to bring them crashing down. The mages of the Eldritch Council were able to stop this foul ritual, but not before two of the islands were lost to the depths.

To protect the isles, the Dawnspire was created; housing objects of incredible power, it is protected by the most elite warriors the Transient Isles have ever known.

Canoness Veridyan $25

99810108001_sistersofbattlecannonessveridyan04

Canoness Veridyan is a veteran of countless battles, a shining beacon of purity and dedication. In battle, she is a shining beacon, leading her Order into battle without fear of death or damnation, her blade tearing through those who stand before her with calculated precision. Under her command, the Sisters of Battle have crushed the foes of the Imperium across the galaxy.

This resin miniature, standing atop a mound of skulls, is based on the classic Sisters of Battle artwork by John Blanche. Canoness Veridyan is clad in the iconic armour of the Sisters of Battle, and is armed with a bolt pistol and power sword. Supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.

 

Seraphim Squad $110

99110108108_seraphimsquad01

Amongst the highly devoted warriors of the Orders Militant, a few Battle Sisters’ faith burns so brightly that it appears the Emperor himself guides their actions. These angelic warriors are known as Seraphim; exclusively trained to use jump packs, they are taught the dexterity, coordination and control to fire two pistols at once. Seraphim deflect the strikes of their foes with fluid grace before landing a killing blow of their own, typically with a point-blank headshot.

This box contains the miniatures necessary to assemble a Seraphim Squad. You’ll receive a Seraphim Sister Superior, 7 Seraphim and 2 Seraphim with Hand Flamers, supplied with 10 Citadel 25mm Round bases.

Retributor Squad $103

99020108019_retributorsquadbundle01

Retributors are armed with the Order’s heaviest weaponry. Believing that the Emperor himself guides their aim, these Sisters annihilate the Ecclesiarchy’s foes with overwhelming firepower. Retributors are commonly armed with heavy bolters to provide long-ranged support to squads of Battle Sisters. However, in the close confines of urban warfare, Retributors prefer to rely upon heavy flamers, unleashing searing infernos that burn their opponents and reduce them to charred corpses. Retributors are also adept at wielding multi-meltas, whose thermal blasts can reduce the mightiest of battle tanks to slag.

The Retributor Squad consists of 1 Sisters of Battle Superior with Power Sword and Bolter, 4 Battle Sisters with Multi-Melta and 1 Battle Sister Squad Upgrade. Supplied with 5 Citadel 25mm Round bases.

 

Battle Sisters Squad $80

99110108104_sistersofbattlesquad01

The vast majority of the Orders Militant are made up of Battle Sisters who form the mainstay of the Ecclesiarchy’s fighting forces. Battle Sisters fight in small units at close quarters, favouring bolters, flamers and meltaguns to eradicate their enemies utterly.

Each squad of Battle Sisters is lead by a Sister Superior, who is directly responsible for the conduct and training of her squad. Under her guidance the unit will train and fight with meticulous precision, enabling them to take on enemies far more powerful than themselves and emerge victorious. In battle they are spurred on by the Light of the Emperor, which will guide them in their time of need and bring about the downfall of their foes.

The Adepta Sororitas Battle Sister Squad contains one Sister Superior with Power Sword and Bolter; one Battle Sister with Simulacrum Imperialis; 6 Battle Sisters with Bolters one Battle Sister with Storm Bolter; and one Battle Sister with Meltagun.

These metal kits come supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Super Glue and Citadel Paints.

 

Repentia Squad $60

99110108110_repentiasquad01

Sisters Repentia band together into groups that seek redemption in the fires of battle, and they are led to war by a Mistress of Repentance – a harsh warrior who drives her charges onwards with a pair of neural whips. These Sisters are possessed of a righteous zeal and know neither pain nor fear. They fight with a maniacal fervour against hopeless odds, finding in death the absolution denied to them in life.

The Adepta Sororitas Repentia Squad contains 1 Mistress of Repentance and 9 Sisters Repentia, supplied with 10 Citadel 25mm Round bases.

These metal kits come supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Super Glue and Citadel Paints.

 

Sororitas Command Squad $55

99110108105_sororitascommandsquad01

A Sororitas Command Squad is formed from the ranks of the elite Celestians, for only the most dedicated and distinguished Sisters of Battle are granted the privilege of forming their leader’s bodyguard. A Sororitas Command Squad may also be accompanied by Sisters from other, non-militant Orders, who act as advisors and specialists to the Canoness. These Sisters are commonly from the Orders Dialogus – skilled orators whose amplified voices can embolden the spirits of nearby troops – and the Orders Hospitaller. With her chirurgeon’s tools, the ministrations from a Sister Hospitaller can staunch the bleeding from mortal wounds and purge lethal poisons from a warrior’s bloodstream, allowing a Battle Sister to return to the fray despite grievous injuries.

This box contains all the miniatures necessary to field a Sororitas Command Squad, a formation found in Codex: Imperial Agents. You’ll receive a Sisters of Battle Dialogus, a Sisters of Battle Hospitaller, a Battle Sister with Heavy Flamer, a Battle Sister with Simulacrum Imperialis and a Battle Sister with Bolt Gun, supplied with 5 Citadel 25mm Round bases.

 

Dominion Squad $55

99110108107_dominionsquad01

Battle Sisters who utilise special weapons are known as Dominions. They are amongst their Order’s most aggressive warriors, driven by the need to destroy the Emperor’s foes. Though their training has curbed some of the worst excesses of their impetuosity, Dominions still yearn to fight at the fore of any Sororitas attack. Dominion Squads serve as shock troops, leading the vanguard of Sororitas assaults, destroying any opposition, blunting the spearheads of any attempted counterattack.

This box contains the miniatures necessary to assemble a Dominion Squad. You’ll receive a Sisters of Battle Canoness, 2 Battle Sisters with Flamer, a Battle Sister with Storm Bolter and a Battle Sister with Meltagun, supplied with 5 Citadel 25mm Round bases.

 

Immolator $40

99140108055_immolator01

The Immolator battle tank is a design exclusive to the Adeptus Ministorum, based on the ubiquitous Rhino chassis. Immolators carry deadly but short-ranged twin heavy flamers, heavy bolters or multi-meltas that can cleanse the battlefield of all but the toughest of foes. Immolators are tactically versatile vehicles and the tank of choice for many Adepta Sororitas commanders, for in addition to their prodigious armaments, their armoured hulls can carry squads of Battle sisters, deploying them onto vital objectives and then supporting them with heavy weapons fire.

This multi-part plastic and resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble an Immolator, armed with a twin-linked heavy flamer, heavy bolter or multi-melta.

 

Battle Sister Squad Upgrade $35

99110108109_sistersquadupgrade01

The vast majority of the Orders Militant is made up of Battle Sisters. Every Battle Sister is an orphan raised from birth by the Schola Progenium to believe in the righteousness of their cause. They are the most physically adept and martial members of the Adeptus Sororitas, and they form the mainstay of the Ecclesiarchy’s fighting forces. They are trained in the use of arms and armour from an early age, and when combined with their unquenchable faith, they are a force to be reckoned with.

This pack contains 5 Battle Sisters – finely detailed metal miniatures that are supplied with 5 25mm round bases. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Super Glue and Citadel Paints.

 

Starting a new SoB army is going to be pricy. But a new Aelf one isn’t…

  • Kisdra

    Same old Sisters’ metal kits at awful price ? They just can’t be serious… Laziest laziness, the greed is real guys…

  • generalchaos34

    Wellll I really wanted to start sisters, I really do, and you guys have been doing GREAT with all the start collecting sets and things like the Deathwatch bike squads…..and you killed it

    • Arthfael

      Wait one or two months, then if nothing happens, everyone will agree that they blew it. But now is a bit early.

    • Seb

      This is quite on point. Launching with older models at such prices is completely counter to present trends. So then, say they launch new models; well the SoB players who went all in on OOP models re-released are now, a). Out of cash, b). Betrayed at price gouging before new plastics release.

      This is potentially a bad tactic indeed. Scratching my head over the decision if it proves out, considering present popular decisions by GW of late.

  • Ronin

    80 dollar old sisters, huh? *Looks on Raging Heroes page*

  • Zack Seiders

    GW was doing something with traitor legions/ aos stuff… Then they flopped with adeptas sororitas.

  • DeadlyYellow

    There is something tragically comedic about all this.

    Likely because they’ll just chalk this up as a failure to rekindle interest and abandon the Sisters for another half decade.

  • Drpx

    Guys, guys, it’s just inflation at work. Remember when you could get a bottle of coke for a nickel?

  • Marik

    Guess I’m going conversion or third party Sisters then. For a company that was so gun-ho about getting rid of metal miniatures they sure as hell are clinging onto the Sisters metals as if they were made of gold. I refused to buy the plethora of third party Sisters models that have been coming out as I was in the belief GW would do the right thing and give us proper Sisters of Battle models…guess I’ll be buying those third party ones now instead, as its pretty obvious GW doesn’t care about Sisters of Battle anymore.

    This feels like less finally giving us a proper Sisters codex and more like GW just throwing something out in a vein, lazy attempt to get people to stop complaining.

    I was starting to get really impressed with GW too up until this. Traitor Legions, Deathwatch, Adeptus Mechanicus, they were on such a great role of giving players exactly what they wanted. Yet players have been wanting, nah, demanding plastic sisters for the better part of a decade now and…still no sign of them.

    GW just doesn’t want to anger anyone by discontinuing armies and it seems pretty upfront that they are done with Sisters, but they’re doing their own product a disservice by not giving it the best chance it can to succeed and, instead, just re-releasing old kits. It feels to me like GW has already written the Sisters off, and that this is just stop-gap way for those that already have a Sisters army that they don’t want to scare away by saying “Sisters are being Squatted.” Which is just as much of a slap to the face to Sisters players, as it means they aren’t getting new units, new models, anything.

    In my opinion they may as well have Squatted them, as this is just a slap in the face to both Sisters players and those who were waiting on plastics to get into Sisters in the first place.

    • Old zogwort

      “In my opinion they may as well have Squatted them”
      Lol you sure have a flair for the dramatic. We all knew that this was not going to be your release and jet it improved the players sister situation dramatically by offering you guys some great oop models and some additional formations until your real release hits the shelfs.

  • Orblivion

    I feel like they must have a huge stock of metal Sororitas they’ve been trying to get rid of for years. They’re doing the bare minimum to keep Sororitas as an official army until they’ve cleared out the inventory.

    • JPMcMillen

      Or maybe they’re using them as a way to get rid of all the metal they had. Those sisters may have been something else before being melted and recast.

  • Crevab

    There’s still a small naive part of me that still hopes for plastic Sisters. But I think it’s time to put that out to pasture. I just can’t see them rereleasing the metal range with plastics on the way.

    Maybe they think they can get people to buy both? I don’t know, it’s just disappointing

    • Statham

      I think it’s just pushing the last of the old stock out, frankly. They haven’t really re-released the core Sisters models, just rearranged the infantry as various bundles.

  • Crevab

    Oh look, the green lady is already out of stock. It’s almost like there’s a demand for SoB :/

  • Old zogwort

    Enough with the raging space nun nonsence.
    1. This book is a blessing for all INQ players it sure contains anything I hoped for + more.
    2. No way that you guys are all puritan girl band players.. This book does not affect most of you at all, and most of you are not shopping for 3th party sisters right now.
    3. If you are a sisters player you already own a celestine. You lost nothing the old book is and will be still valid, GW just re released their transport that went for $80+ on Ebay, gave some interesting made to order options and gave them some new formations.
    4. We all knew ages ago that this was not to be the plastic sister release stop the insanity, there will be space nuns in 2017 it is not 2017 jet.
    5. For those who don’t play space nuns, and complain about those “ugly” metal models. Have you ever seen them on the table ? These sisters are actually one of the best models GW has ever made the raging heroes ones do not even come close to them.

    Now lets stop the insanity and celebrate that those few INQ players finally got their hard cover book.

    • Paul Jan

      One weird thing is how the immolator is described as a “multi-part plastic and resin kit” Is this just copy-paste, or has something gone wrong in remaking the clear bubble dome part?

      As to the metal models, it just feels so unnecessary. Its not like the old thousand sons upgrade kit got a push before the plastic box, or the many many chaos kits still in finecast …

      What i really want is the inquisitor hierophant to come back. He’s a much better model.

      • Old zogwort

        What material has the canopy to be if it isn’t clear resin or clear plastic ?

    • rakshasa

      5. For those who don’t play space nuns, and complain about those “ugly”
      metal models. Have you ever seen them on the table ? These sisters are
      one of the best models GW has ever made, decades ago. Although they do not
      even come close to the minis made by raging heroes, for the GW fanboy, they should be enough.

      – There I fixed it for you. 🙂

      • Old zogwort

        Some of the raging heroes models I like, mostly the newer ones with no cleavage or their older style chunky wires / weapons.
        They do however totally lack the 40k ascetics. They would fit perfectly in a game of infinity but look out off place in a game of 40k. This makes the GW sisters line great those models all have a good composition*, fit perfectly in the 40k universe while still having their own unique goth aesthetics.

        * Except the hospitaler that one is just plain ugly, and the new sculpt that one is cool but just not of the same quality as the older ones.

      • Statham

        They aren’t enough. I don’t want to pick up a film thinking I’m going to get Benedict Cumberbatch and finding out it’s Tom Hiddleston instead, only to be told that ‘it’s fine, just deal with it’ because they’re both British actors and there’s no real difference. Raging Heroes don’t measure up, and the metal models – while great for their time – are old, cumbersome and out of date. I can’t imagine carrying a case full of them, and I can’t imagine farting around having to pin them and the like because the metal’s that fiddly and doesn’t fit in parts. They need an update, simple as.

        “Fixed it for you 🙂 🙂 🙂 :)”

        • Old zogwort

          Jup metal certainly has its disadvantages.

        • rakshasa

          In my opinion all of the new space nuns minis (whether SF of Fantasy) make great models for 40K SOB. They’re sexy and gothic and sci-fi looking at the same time. Also with better proportions. And they are miles ahead of the old models put up by GW.

          P.S.: I don’t really like the actors described by you but I suppose in order to make an analogy I guess you’re the type who likes old farts living off of their glory days and hates on the new kids even if they do a better job. Elitist much? 😉

          • Statham

            Nothing to do with being elitist – you just couldn’t read my analogy correctly and need to get over yourself when telling people to make do with third party stuff. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 Have fun with your Not!SOB’s.

  • knightsanguis

    Those metal miniatures are stupidly expensive and that insane price is the reason why Sisters aren’t selling in the first place. They’re mono-pose, decades-old miniatures and aren’t worth that much in comparison to the other armies that have newer, plastic and posable miniatures.

    • Crevab

      Posable? The more advanced their CAD gets the more they seem intent on making monopose models

      • Statham

        Only for character pieces, mostly. The regular Marines and the like – especially the Mk III’s from the Prospero box – are as poseable and as customisable as ever, if not moreso. Within reason, of course.

  • jeff white

    110USD for 10 seraphim?
    holy mother of the emperor himself…

  • rtheom

    I wasn’t really expecting sisters to get any cheaper, but it is pretty disappointing that they didn’t make any effort at all to drop their price. They could have easily done a “limited time bundle” and popped a bunch of them together as a big kit with a substantial discount. At least that way the could have sold a bunch and still forced people to spend a bunch at once too. Just like one of each of the above for $350 or something along those lines. Like the large battalion boxes they just released.

  • Thatroubleshootah

    Who would pay these priceS? It seems Insane.

  • Jakub Jánošík

    Hmm interesting …. You get 74 AoS models for 80 dollars and 10 sisters of battle for the same price. It seems that a calculator has broken somewhere in GW economics department … or there is still the possibility that this is a bad joke …
