Battle Sister Bulletin – Part 15: Artwork
Last week, at the NOVA Open, we revealed the awesome Sisters of Battle army set that’s coming out in November and showed off painted examples of the incredible models that come in the box. In fact, we even surprised the attendees of the seminar with a free Canoness model from the set – much to their delight!
As well as the breathtaking new miniatures, the box contains a collector’s edition of the new Codex: Adepta Sororitas, and this week’s Battle Sister Bulletin takes a look inside its hallowed pages at some of the sensational artwork therein. But first, let’s take a look at the cover…
The cover art portrays a kneeling Battle Sister, praying to the Emperor for the strength to smite His enemies with the righteous fury for which the Order of the Ebon Chalice is famed. It’s an understated piece, with the holy glow from the Battle Sister’s Chaplet Ecclesiasticus and the subtle light descending from high above reflecting off her armour providing the only sources of illumination on what is otherwise a bleak scene. With skulls lining the floor and the scene representing a faint light in the dark, could this illustration be any more Warhammer 40,000?
In their first few pages, codexes traditionally show a huge double-page illustration of an epic battle scene featuring the title faction at war. These are always impressive pieces, so let’s check out what the Adepta Sororitas have on offer…
In this scene, a cadre of warriors from the T’au Empire are suffering the full force of the Ecclesiarchy’s wrath as the Adepta Sororitas tear through their lines. The division is striking, with the classical aspects of the army on the left – namely the advancing Battle Sisters, and Seraphim descending from on high like avenging angels – and their more sinister auxiliary units on the right, such as the fearsome Sisters Repentia, Arco-flagellants and Penitent Engine looming behind them. In the distance, a Living Saint rises like a phoenix, a manifestation of the Emperor’s divine power who is equally terrifying and magnificent to behold.
Finally, we’ve got an illustration of a holy procession taking place…
In this scene, we can see the Triumph of Saint Katherine – the funeral procession of a fallen saint. A divine light is pouring down onto the consecrated body as it lies in state, and a fearsome Battle Sister has hewn down a number of heretics who foolishly sought to desecrate her remains.
With some incredible new Adepta Sororitas artwork continuing to take shape and word of a dedicated army box on the horizon, things are shaping up nicely for the Sisters of Battle. We’ll see you in a couple of weeks with another bulletin in which we’ll be taking a look at the first finished example from the upcoming fleet of Adepta Sororitas vehicles!
