Games Workshop is blowing the covers off the weapons for the Adepta Sororitas. Get ready to smash things with furious maces!

The Adepta Sororitas are getting a bunch of new toys to play with in their upcoming codex. A new Paragon Warsuit, new weapons, new units, and more. Today, GW is showcasing a bunch of the weapons they are wielding into combat and they are ready to smack stuff around. Let’s dive on in.

“Battle Sisters across the board are about to see all manner of updates in the upcoming Codex: Adepta Sororitas, and to get into the crusading spirit we’re giving you a sneak peek at how they fight.

Fans of maces, in particular, will have cause to rejoice, as they’re a favoured weapon among the God-Emperor’s most faithful, and many of the new warriors we’ll meet this week are a dab hand at cracking skulls with them on the battlefield.””

The Paragon Warsuit

Paragon Warsuits are going to be an nice addition to their armory. With solid stats across the board and a great 2+ save, these are an elite weapon platform that will be able to give as well as they get.

They will also be packing a heavy weapon for ranged threats – a heavy bolter, Ministorum heavy flamer, or multi-melta. But when things get up close, they have some nasty weapons for that, too.


Which ever option you go with, they will be a serious threat on the battlefield!

Celestian Sacresant

A new unit for the Sisters of Battle, the Celestians typically act as bodyguards for their Canoness but that’s not always the case. However you choose to field them on the tabletop, you’re going to have another rock-solid unit on the field. With “thick powered shields and heavy melee weapons” they are ready to take the fight to the enemies of the Emperor and show them the light.



Another new option for the Sisters, the Dogmata isn’t just there for singing hymns of battle – that Mace is no joke. Keep her around an objective to really help out when things get dire.

The Adepta Sororitas codex will be up for pre-order this Saturday. Be sure to grab your copy and get all the new updates for these Battle Sisters!


Fire, Faith, and Fury!
