And no, it’s not an abridged codex – it’s the fully updated new edition of Codex: Adepta Sororitas, with special cover art exclusive to this set!
Now that you know what you can look forward to, let’s take a look at the rest of the new miniatures in the set…


What Are They?

In the grim darkness of the far future, it’s really not a good idea to upset the Ecclessiarchy.** To be sentenced to arco-flagellation is to become little more than a weaponised, utterly berserk killer. Over the course of a long, painful process, the convict’s mind is wiped, replaced only with an uncontrollable urge to mete out violent destruction upon their prey. In fact, this process is so effective that Arco-flagellants must be subdued by the pacifier helm rooted deep in their nervous system and cerebellum to render them docile.***
When unleashed in battle, a trigger word is uttered, which not only deactivates the pacifier helms of the Arco-flagellants but floods their bodies with a murderous cocktail of stimms and combat drugs. No sooner has the kill order been given than the pack of Arco-flagellants roars off towards the enemy lines with inhuman speed, tearing through their hapless victims in a destructive whirlwind of cybernetically implanted flails.

The Models

The design of the Arco-flagellants was heavily inspired by the first example of their kind, the infamous Damien 1427 (seen below) from the classic Inquisitor game.**** Their physiques have been unnaturally distorted by all the cybernetic enhancements, and cables sprout crudely from their skin in multiple places. Some wear ragged clothing or hoods of penance, but they all feature the distinctive pacifier helms, cranial conduits, and the arco-flails that have been surgically grafted in place of their arms.
As one would expect from psychotic living engines of destruction, the Arco-flagellants are posed to be sprinting at full speed, wildly flailing their weapon limbs in anticipation of the kill. They certainly look suitably intimidating on the battlefield, and you can trust us when we tell you that you won’t want to be on the receiving end of a charge from a unit of them!

Repentia Superior

We couldn’t let you go without quickly talking about the awesome Repentia Superior miniature featured in the army set as well. These fearsome matriarchs are tasked with overseeing the Sisters Repentia in battle, ensuring they stay true to their vows by taking the fight to heretics without fear and with the Emperor’s name on their lips.
To that end, they wield neural whips with which they can ‘remind’ the Repentia of their duty and deliver a sound thrashing to their enemies. This miniature looks every bit the imperious matron, the snarl on her face showing the grim determination she has to see her charges redeemed in battle.

Coming Soon!

So there you go – a seriously impressive box chock full of brand-new miniatures and more besides! You may have noticed that the models are all single-pose. The good news is this means you’ll be able to get them assembled and on the battlefield in short order.
You may also have noticed that over the course of the series, we’ve hinted at loads of other models that aren’t in this set. That’s because this is actually only the (mind-blowingly awesome) vanguard of an expanded Adepta Sororitas range yet to come. How cool is that?
What’s more, you won’t even have long to wait before you can pre-order this amazing boxed set – it’s out next month!
