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.
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.
This 136-page full-colour Codex presents background and rules for a number of smaller Imperial factions, whose forces fight alongside other armies of the Emperor. Use the rules, datasheets, wargear and detachments included to add members of the following operatives to any army of the Imperium:

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. Bearing a grudge that dates back 10,000 years to the Heresy, these fallen angels are driven by hatred and an overwhelming desire for revenge. When Huron Blackheart leads his warband of Red Corsairs to attack the Hollow Worlds of Lastrati, the human defenders can do little to protect themselves against such powerful enemies. By the time the Space Wolves arrive, the Red Corsairs are already well entrenched. 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?

Written by Mark Clapham
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. Yet cruel eyes glow in the corners of the realms. fixated on the Dawnspire, intent on harnessing its power for their own dark purpose…
Dawnspire is a fantastic box set filled with Citadel miniatures, with a book telling the story of the Skaven Warlord Ripsnikk’s attempt to take the Dawnspire from the Swifthawk Agents who protect it. 74 miniatures are included, split between Skaven and Aelf forces:
– 1 High Warden
– 1 Archmage
– 10 Swordmasters
– 10 Spireguard
– 5 Reavers
– 1 Skaven Warlord
– 1 Warlock Engineer
– 1 Packmaster
– 2 units of 20 Clanrats
– 2 Rat Ogors
– 1 Poisoned Wind Mortar Weapon Team
– 1 Warpfire Thrower Weapon Team
The box also includes the complete rules for playing games of Warhammer age of Sigmar, 2 Warscroll Battalions and 2 Pitched Battle Profiles, one of each for each force. Supplied with round and square bases for each model.
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
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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…
