Plastic Sisters are closer than you think. Here’s a preview of the arms and armory of the Adeptas Sororitas.
That’s right, through the simple fact of time being linear–at least as far as we experience it, who even knows if that’s right, or why there’s time in the first place, but probably better not to think too hard about that–but through the simple fact that one moment appears to happen after the next, we’re closer now to the release of the Plastic Sisters of Battle than ever before. Close enough that we’re seeing their precious plastic weapons.

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.
There’s so much detail here. It’s amazing how many details are just jammed onto these bolters–but they don’t look overwrought, right? That’s the interesting thing to me. The weapons feel especially gothic–but it’s very much a less is more kind of vibe. These guns feel like they’d actually be built for a reason.
Of course what would sisters be without Flamers and Chainswords.
Coming next year, Emperor willing.
