CODEX: ADEPTA SORORITAS $60

The Adepta Sororitas are the armed wing of the Imperial faith. They defend the Emperor’s cathedrums, chapels, and holy shrines from the heretic, the mutant, the witch, and the alien. Encased within power armour, the Battle Sisters of the Orders Militant wield boltguns, flamers, and chainswords as they march relentlessly towards their enemies, bearing relics of fallen martyrs and singing prayers above the din of battle. Their tanks and wargear are bedecked with the iconography of the Adeptus Ministorum, a demonstration of their zeal to any who would opposed them. Where the Adepta Sororitas tread, so does the light of the Emperor shine.

This 129-page book is richly embellished with art and background information celebrating the courage, strength, and zeal of the Sisters of Battle.

ADEPTA SORORITAS BATTLEFORCE: ARMY OF FAITH $215

The Sisters of Battle know when to hold back and defend, and when to swoop in with an undeniable surge of rightous fury that can send their opponents reeling. These highly mobile forces are equipped with jump packs, allowing them to soar over the fray to strike at the heart of the enemy. When supported with mobile artillery, they’re poised to deliver a crushing blow to even the most stalwart of foes.

Alongside this inspiring warrior, Seraphim and Zephyrim leap into battle, delivering vengeance to heretic and witch alike. All these potent warriors are supported by an Exorcist, which lays down a barrage of ordnance as well as a fitting accompaniment. Few foes can withstand this army’s initial charge. If you’re looking to give your existing Adepta Sororitas collection a massive boost, you’ll find every unit in this box a boon, and this will save you money over buying each kit individually. This battleforce also makes a fantastic way to leap into a new project, ready to hit the table en masse.

BATTLEFORCE: GENESTEALER CULTS – BIOSANCTIC BROODSURGE $215

This xenos-empowered box contains a terrifying Genestealer Cults force, led by an enigmatic Benefictus. This zealous leader is surrounded by determined and rebellious soldiers such as Neophyte Hybrids, and the twisted bulk of crude-weapon wielding Aberrants.

ADEPTA SORORITAS DICE SET $33.50

Praise the God-Emperor with this set of themed dice. They’re sure to draw His gaze as you hunt down the witch, the heretic, and the xenos.

This is a set of 16 six-sided dice for games of Warhammer 40,000, themed around the Adepta Sororitas. These dice are cast in a pearlised black, befitting their grim purpose, with bronze markings. The 1-5 facings are traditionally pipped, but each ‘6’ facing is emblazoned with the fleur-de-lys symbol of the Adepta Sororitas.

Contents:
– 16x square-cornered D6 dice, each measuring 16x16x16mm, in a pearlescent black with bronze markings.

MINISTORUM PRIEST WITH VINDICTOR $35

Ministorum Priests fill the role of stoking the faith of warriors in battle. They often join Wars of Faith – though it is not unheard of for a Ministorum Priest to lead one. Filled with a fearsome religious fervour, they incite the faithful as they bellow catechisms of hatred, smiting the foe and inspiring their charges to further acts of violence.

This multipart plastic miniature builds one Ministorum Priest, armed with the utterly deadly vindictor, a combination of a heavy chainsword and flamer. Leading from the front, this powerful support unit empowers nearby Adepta Sororitas units to fight all the harder.

This kit contains four plastic components, and a Citadel 32mm Round Slotta base. This push-fit miniature can be assembled without glue, and is supplied unpainted – we recommend using Citadel Colour paints.

You’ll also find a reference card for the Genestealer Cults army rule and special datasheet cards for use in Combat Patrol games.
