Tomorrow sees the release of a whole range of plastic Adepta Sororitas kits, so we thought we’d take the opportunity to share some fun and flavourful lists that you could build featuring the new models. Each of these lists is 100 Power and, while they might not win you many tournaments, they will surely win you the Emperor’s benediction.
What better way to bring the Emperor’s light to heretics, mutants and witches than by setting them on fire with holy promethium and making them into a burning beacon of faith? This army packs as many flamer weapons as possible into its Brigade Detachment.
A floating pulpit with built-in heavy flamers? Yes, please! The two Canonesses both have braziers of holy fire so that once per game they can each unleash a flaming Overwatch attack.
The fiery heart of the army and what’s better than flamey death? Six lots of flamey death! The Superiors each take a hand flamer to bring even more flamey death. Did we mention that we like flamey death?
Sure, we could just take more Battle Sisters Squads but the Celestian Squads help us fill out a Brigade Detachment and they also have cooler helmets.
What could be better than more flamers? If some of them were carried by jump pack-wearing Seraphim. It’s time to rain some fire from above!
The Heavy Support slots go heavy with some heavy flamers. Can you feel the burn?
Get ready for some drive-by flamings! Pop your Dominions or Retributors in these and get ready to start the bonfire of non-believers.
Wow, that’s enough flaming death to make the Arch-Arsonist of Charadron green(er) with envy.
Now you’re probably wondering why there were only a few Immolators in that army list. Well, we’ve saved them all for this one instead! This army, based on a Battalion Detachment, is all about being mobile and mounted in vehicles – it’s a way of giving tanks to the Emperor.
Yes, we’ve already seen Junith in the previous list, but her awesome flying pulpit means that she can keep up with the tanks in the army so she makes it into this one too.
Jump in the Immolators and go to wipe out some enemy units with some righteous melta weaponry at holy half-range.
Part tank, part transport, all awesome. And who doesn’t want some mobile stained glass windows in your army? Added to the mobile pulpit, all you really need is some kind of mobile steeple and you’ve pretty much got yourself a moving cathedrum.
Some might think the Dialogus are in the army for their Stirring Rhetoric ability that allows you to change the value of a Miracle dice. They’re actually here because they are the best singers in the Adepta Sororitas and you need someone to accompany the Exorcists.
The speedy Seraphim can also keep up with the tanks and lay down even more devastating close-range firepower.
Organise the organ and prepare the piano! Play those tunes and orchestrate your enemy’s destruction to the sound of explosive death.
Mobility + music = marvellous. The speed provided by the vehicles will really help you stay one step (or one beat as it were) ahead of your foes.
Everybody makes mistakes. In the 41st Millennium, the important thing is how you deal with those mistakes. If you prefer the “strap someone into a mechanical walker of death” style to saying sorry and learning from your actions, then this army is for you. This time we’re taking a Battalion Detachment and a Spearhead Detachment.
Celestine was once a Sister Repentia herself, making her an ideal choice to lead an army of the penitent. She’s backed up by a couple of Canonesses to keep the rest of the army in line with their Rods of Office.
Obviously, we need some troops to hold onto objectives and provide some covering fire. Clearly, these Sisters have been chosen as mourners to witness the horrific deaths of the penitent.
The Repentia are the core of the penitent army. Of course, you can’t have Repentia without a Repentia Superior, encouraging them along with her neural whips to ensure they achieve absolution. Don’t you wish you had someone so caring in your life?
We couldn’t have a penitent army without the worst of the worst. Anchorites represent Repentia that have betrayed their Sisters in battle – they are entombed in adamantium caskets to prolong their suffering.*
This Spearhead Detachment adds in an ordained servant of the Imperial Creed and his faithful enclave. Point them at the enemy and watch them unleash death in the name of the Emperor!
Inspire your penitent host to even greater heights of religious fury with this epic terrain feature.
Surely, the Emperor will forgive this army almost anything!
Hopefully, these lists will give you a few ideas for making a fun, themed army with the Adepta Sororitas. Don’t forget that the next wave of plastic Sisters of Battle releases are available to pre-order from tomorrow. Make sure that you also head over to the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page to share your own odd and unconventional armies with us.
