Book 4 of the Psychic Awakening Series
The epic Psychic Awakening series continues with Ritual of the Damned. This campaign book features a host of new rules for the Thousand Sons, Dark Angels and Grey Knights. The campaign book also tells a sweeping narrative recounting the fiendish plan of the Daemon Primarch Magnus the Red, as well as the Prosperan Rift War that followed.
Inside this 88-page book, you’ll find:
– Exciting background information on the immediate aftermath of the formation of the Great Rift and the plans that Magnus the Red and the Thousands Sons began formulating to further their own evil ends. Also includes the viewpoints of the Grey Knights and the Dark Angels and tells of their valiant efforts to prevent the Daemon Primarch’s plans from reaching fruition.
– Missions that allow you to recreate some of the most pivotal battles during the conflict, and war zones that let you bring your battles to some of the most distinctive sites that were fought over.
– Expanded army rules for the Thousand Sons, Dark Angels and Grey Knights, including Warlord Traits, Stratagems, Relics, and psychic powers.
– A new unit for the Grey Knights – the Grey Knights Chaplain – along with a set of six Litanies of Purity for them to utilise in battle.
Lazarus is a magnificent warrior, welding Enmity’s Edge with all the martial skill expected of the Dark Angels. Known throughout the Chapter for his cool demeanour, it is only when fighting enemy sorcerers that his composure fades in any way. He has seen many battle-brothers fall to the evils of the warp and delivers every strike against enemy psykers all the harder in tribute to the lost, whose names he chants as he fights to invoke their memory and inspire himself to courageous deeds.
An HQ choice for the Dark Angels Chapter, Master Lazarus makes for an exceptional melee fighter – especially against his chosen prey, enemy psykers. Meanwhile, the Spiritshield Helm he carries protects him from the baleful influence of those who would seek to use the warp against him.
Master Lazarus can instead be assembled as an unnamed Primaris Captain with a choice of helmeted or unhelmeted head. Instead of carrying the Spiritshield Helm, the Primaris Captain can be equipped with a bolt rifle and a choice of power sword or power fist.
This 22-piece plastic set makes one Master Lazarus and is supplied with 1x Citadel 40mm Round Base.
The Exorcist is a weapon uniquely representative of the ways in which the Adepta Sororitas pair shows of devotion to the Emperor with the castigation of his heretical enemies. It is a rolling shrine to the magnificence of the Master of Mankind, a breathtakingly ornate piece of craftsmanship that grinds into battle projecting inspirational hymnals to the Emperor’s glory. These carry across the field of battle and swell all good Imperial hearts with faith and pride. When entire squadrons of these vehicles advance in armoured spearheads, their combined symphonic emanations transform even the most mud-and-blood-drenched field of war into a veritable cathedrum. Beaten-down warriors feel fresh fire in their hearts as they hear the battle-canticles soar. Those outnumbered or stricken with fear find fresh courage and the strength to hold their ground and keep fighting. And then the Exorcists’ first rocket salvoes scream down into the enemy’s midst, and the entire face of the battle changes.
The Exorcist is equipped with a hull-mounted heavy bolter and a choice of Exorcist missile launcher or Exorcist conflagration rockets as its primary armament. The vehicle come equipped with smoke launchers and can also be upgraded with an additional weapon in the form of a hunter-killer missile.
The kit comprises 99 components and includes all of the Exorcist’s weapons and wargear options. The model comes supplied with an Adepta Sororitas Transfer Sheet.
Junith Eruita sweeps into battle wreathed in holy fire and holding high the Mace of Castigation. Riding within the Pulpit of Saint Holline’s Basilica, she hovers across the battlefield upon thrumming waves of holy energy. The pulpit’s heavy flamers swivel seemingly of their own accord, seeking out the heretical and the faithless and immolating them without mercy. As the pyres blaze higher, the Canoness Superior’s voice rings out over their furious crackling, her every utterance as sharp and clear as the bells of Ophelia VII. No matter how outnumbered, how beaten down and bloodied they may be, every true Imperial servant who hears her words feels the fires of faith kindle anew in their breast. They surge back into the fight with a prayer on their lips and righteous hatred in their eyes. This is Eruita’s greatest gift from the Emperor, this undying flame of absolute belief that leaps to all those around her as though their souls were dry tinder and her words the blazing brand. In this inferno of faith have countless heretics, witches and aliens burned, and by its white heat have manifold Imperial victories been forged.
Junith Eruita is a unique HQ choice for the Adepta Sororitas, and bears the fabled Mace of Castigation. She is flanked by burning braziers and the pulpit she rides in is equipped with a pair of heavy flamers – those heretics aren’t going to burn themselves!
The kit comprises 50 components and comes supplied with 1x Citadel 50mm Round Base, 1x Citadel Large Flying Base and 1x Citadel Small Flying Stem.
Sisters of the Orders Hospitaller are the physical and spiritual healers of the Adepta Sororitas. As much as their medicinal expertise and surgical skill, they provide a font of faith to those in need. Intoning prayers to salve the fevered mind and reciting tenets of fortitude, they remind their temporary ward of those saints who bore tremendous sufferings with unflinching grace. They whisper mantras of vigour to dull the pain of injury and lift the veil of fatigue. Elbows-deep in viscera, Hospitallers spit denunciations of religious hatred as they dig through screaming warriors for burning rad slugs, shards of crystallised grief and spurs of polluted shrapnel.
A Hospitaller is an Elites choice for the Adepta Sororitas, and comes equipped with a holstered bolt pistol and chirurgeon’s tools. A dying Battle Sister lies at her feet as the Hospitaller reads her last rites from a sacred tome.
The kit comprises 26 components and comes supplied with 1x Citadel 50mm Round Base.
Arco-flagellants lope alongside faithful armies in packs, their lash-like limbs whipping back and forth as they follow their priestly masters to battle. When the enemy is sighted, they are driven into a frenzied killing rage by a potent cocktail of adrenal stimulants and neural kill-signals, whereupon they hurl themselves into battle with no thought for self-preservation or restraint. Hacking and slashing with cyber-implanted flails, pneu-mattocks and cleavers, they fight on dementedly until there is nothing left of their foes but a pile of mutilated corpses.
Each Arco-flagellant is ‘armed’ with a pair arco-flails (well, they’ve been grafted on, so they have no choice really!). There are two different head, left arm and right arm options for each body, including a specific combination enabling you to make the classic Arco-flagellant, Damien 1427.
The kit comprises 94 components and comes supplied with 10x Citadel 25mm Round Bases.
Penitent Engines charge towards the foe heedless of danger, knowing that only in death, theirs or the enemy’s, can absolution be earned. The arms of the engine, mounted with enormous flamers, blaze a trail of fiery destruction as it thunders forwards. Upon reaching the enemy, the chemical and synaptic inputs pumped into the pilot are altered, causing them to see their own face in the faces of their foes. Thrashing at those before it, each a reflection of their unfathomable guilt, they rampage through the enemy’s battle lines leaving death and carnage in their wake. Some engines bear adamantine-toothed buzz-blades that are capable of cleaving through plated tank armour, while others mangle flesh and pulverise bone with lashing swings of their multi-headed flails.
Each Penitent Engine is equipped with a pair of heavy flamers and a choice of penitent buzz-saws or penitent flails. Alternatively, any Penitent Engine can be assembled as a Mortifier, or as a fully-encased Anchorite, which are equipped with heavy bolters instead of heavy flamers.
The kit comprises 126 components and includes all of the weapons and assembly options for all three variants. The model comes supplied with 2x Citadel 50mm Round Bases.
~Have at it folks!
