This Battle Sister Has It All – Faith, a Sword, and an Absolutely Massive Banner
Welcome to the latest instalment of The Battle Sister Bulletin, our regular look at some of the coolest things that are on the way for the Adepta Sororitas. Last time, we met a new division of the elite Celestian order, and today something (or someone) even fancier is coming into view.
The position of Reliquant at Arms is typically given to long-standing members of the Orders Pronatus, the holy protectors and reclaimers of the thousands of artefacts coveted by the Adepta Sororitas. They are skilled both in the care and restoration of ancient relics, as well as the destruction of those who would do them harm – so it’s definitely handy to have one around when a crusade is calling.
The Sister known as Aestred Thurga has dedicated her life to the protection of one relic above all others, the wonderfully named Auto-Tapestry of the Emperor’s Judgement. Weaved across the lifespans of five Canonesses and thrumming with the holy power of the Emperor’s gaze, the Auto-Tapestry (and its indomitable custodian) can be found in the records of some of the bloodiest battles the Adepta Sororitas have ever faced.
The banner itself is resplendent with detail, topped with an ornate crown of iron and the skull of a devout, while its bearer strikes a more restrained figure wearing austere robes over her armour, and carrying the mighty Blade of Vigil.
The glory of the Auto-Tapestry is a boon to the Sisters who fight under it, so make sure to pack your budding Adepta Sororitas force with plenty of Battle Sisters, Celestians, and Retributors to take full advantage when Aestred Thurga is released.
Meet the Musicians Who Bring Life to the Mortal RealmsJust when you thought the Mortal Realms had reached the pinnacle of strangeness, along comes a floating tree spirit with a magical war flute.
In the upheaval caused by the events of the Broken Realms saga, Alarielle has been hard at work scouring Ghyran, the Realm of Life, from the taint of Chaos. When the Everqueen sings a song of cleansing at the Oak of Ages Past, something entirely new springs from the roots.
Floating on thermals of sheer magic, Warsong Revenants play a Spirit Song which has the power to cause the land itself to come alive. Their music is a balm to the Sylvaneth and the promise of vengeance to their enemies. The Warsong Revenants can even summon a malicious swarm of spites to attack nearby enemies.
This elegant model is covered in details that will delight painters of every skill level, including a variety of textures like wood, leaves, skin, and finely-wrought metal to experiment with.
We can’t tell you everything about the Warsong Revenant just yet, but it’s a fair bet that you’ll want some Sylvaneth to be within earshot of their magical melody. If you’re not yet growing an army of them, the Start Collecting! Sylvaneth box is a great place to begin.
The Broken Realms saga continues to shake up the power dynamics in the Mortal Realms. Grab a copy of Broken Realms: Morathi, Broken Realms: Teclis, and Broken Realms: Be’lakor to catch up with the story so far. Keep your eyes peeled for more news about the Sylvaneth and Alarielle’s role in the ongoing events.
