Sisters of Battle
It’s finally here! The Plastic Sisters of Battle Army box contains 25 miniatures, Tactical Objectives, cards for your Strategems and Rites and a limited edition Codex. Let’s check it out!
Over on the Warhammer Community a new model for the Sisters of Battle has been shown off. It’s a model of Junith Eruita, a Canoness Superior of the Order of Our Martyred Lady, complete with flying pulpit. This massive model is as gloriously over-the-top as Sisters of Battle classics like the Exorcist or Penitent Engine. It’s a floating pulpit with a massive aquila on the front and skeletons holding heavy flamers on the bottom. I do think this is one bizarre model, even by the standards of Warhammer 40K. The post Junith Eruita appeared first on Felix's Gaming Pages.
I'm starting to feel like the more productive I get with hobby projects, the worse I get at updating this blog. I've actually been pretty busy with painting and gaming over the last few months, both before and after my Japan trip.Firstly, I had enough Blood Angels and Death Guard painted up to try my first game of Warhammer 40,000 Eighth edition. It wasn't a very big game - power level of 75 per side - and I used the open war cards to generate a random scenario, but it was a good opportunity to try out the rules, despite making a few mistakes. Most notably, I kept rolling two dice for morale check instead of one, meaning those units that weren't unbreakable were far more likely to run away.In the end the Death Guard edged a victory after the Daemon Prince wiped out an entire Tactical Squad to claim their objective, while the Death Company remained locked in combat with the Death Guard squad guarding their objective.I found a very fast and fast moving game. If I had any complaints it was that, like Age of Sigm
On top of my 2mm madness, another project I've been working on these past few months has been putting together a Sisters of Battle force for a friends tournament that we just had just a few days ago. Byron hosted all six of us at his house with a delicious BBQ lunch and supper - a great day out. I'll post a couple shots of the event at the end of this.Last winter I debuted my first efforts with this project, using models kindly provided by IainW, a long time participant of the Painting Challenge and all around good egg (thanks Iain!). As I mentioned in that post, this is not my first foray into the Sisters of Battle, as many years ago I had collected a sizeable force only to regrettably sell it off. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to reconstitute (reconsecrate?) my collection of Adepta Sororitas (nerdspeak for the Sisters) and so have been furiously collecting, building and painting models for the past few months.I understand that the Sisters will have a new Codex-guidebook-thingy coming out soon, so t
Hoi,Quite some years ago I owned a nice sizeable army of Sisters of Battle for 40k. During my GW Dark-Age however, I sold most of my armies and with them the Sisters. Selling them was hard, it was the army I most hated to het rid off, recently the news that plastic SoB's are on the horizon filtered through to me and I jumped on the wagon again. I have obtained quite a lot of SoB characters and Sisters and even some stuff I didn't own back in the days of old. Painting is slow because I cannot choose what colour scheme. I have found a great blue and white scheme on Pinterest but when I did a test- figure it didn't feel right...So I started on some of the other figures to start with. Two Death Cult Assasins and a Hospitaler.The Hospitaler is one of the few figures I kept back from my original army and she wore pretty much the same colours then. The Assasins are new, well okay second hand since I bought off Ebay, a great source of figures specially if they come at a nice price. I really like how the Assasi
Hi all! Here she is: the new Sister of Battle. I painted here in the livery of the Order of the Purple Heart to match my Ministorum Knight force.A delicate model and full of details. I definitely look forward to the new range of models coming out!What about you? Leave a comment or reaction below…
When we last left the Shadow War Campaign Final Mission, the Sisters of Battle had taken the lead having captured their primary objective and carried it off the table via their deployment zone.Part one, covering the mission and deployment is here.Part two is here.When we left things in Part Three, the Sisters of Battle had just carried their Primary Objective off the table, securing them 3 victory points. As they were in second position on the leader board, that meant any other Kill Team than the Orks needed 4 Victory Points to beat them and win the campaign.Enough Orks had recovered to try and drag their primary objective, the Doomsday Device, back towards the table edge. But they were now coming under attack from Blood Angel Scouts and Tau, both of whom needed to go through the Orks to get their own objectives and both of whom needed to stop the Orks if they were going to win the campaign.But despite the heavy attack, the Orks kept struggling on.Meanwhile, having lost the Data Bank that was their primary ob
Part Two of my report on the final mission of my Shadow War Campaign. Part One, covering the mission rules and deployment is here.The Orks took the first turn and advanced quickly, swarming over the archeotech.The Sisters of Battle advanced more cautiously, sending out a scout ahead while the rest followed on.At the end of turn 1, the Dark Eldar and Blood Angels arrived, deploying on opposite sides on the far left and near right.The Dark Eldar quickly found themselves under heavy fire from the Orks.While the Sisters broke off part of their forces to pursue this new threat.The Orks had seized much of the archeotech, but were now under heavy fire from all sides. And at the end of the turn the Chaos Space Marines and Tau arrived.The Sisters poured fire on to the Chaos Marines, doing no damage but keeping them pinned.Meanwhile, the Seraphim seized their primary objective.Despite being delayed by the Sisters and Orks, the Dark Eldar continued their advance.While on the left, the firefight between the Orks and Tau
When I last posted about my Shadow War campaign it was December 2018, I had just completed round 5 and four of the six Kill Teams had gathered the 10 data caches I had decided was necessary to finish the campaign. Since then, I let things go quiet, partly because I got absorbed in my Blood Angels and Death Guard painting project and partly because I needed the time and space to bring the campaign to a suitably climactic end.The original Necromunda Campaign rules, on which Shadow War's rules are based, had nothing to say about actually ending a campaign. You simply continued to play games and build up your gang until everyone died, got bored or grew out of wargaming entirely.Shadow War improved on this by introducing victory conditions using its concept of Promethium Caches. Once one Kill Team collected 15 caches, if they won one more mission they would win the campaign. So far, so basic. For my campaign I changed the Promethium Caches to Data Caches and reduced the required number for victory to ten. But I ne
Hi Folks!Just a small past to end the work week. This time out we have a Penitent Engine from the 40K universe.Taking a dip into the GrimDark, penitent engines are mechanical constructs piloted by super-bad sinners serving penance for some particularly heinous crime (team-killing in Fortnight, refusing to signal when changing lanes, not picking up after their dogs, nasty things like that). Upon sentencing they are basically grafted into what equates to a dreadnought chassis and then injected with all manner of psychotropic drugs and pain inhibitors. After a quick buff and a shine they are then pointed at the enemy and released. Weee!! Death and Destruction ensues. Actually, death in combat is the only way getting out of this gig, but thankfully that usually comes along pretty quickly. As you can imagine recidivism is pretty low in the Dark Imperium of Mankind....This model is not an official Penitent Engine (Gasp! I know, Heresy in of itself.), but rather a nicely crafted proxy from the talented folks o
Come Join the Allies of Inconvenience Crew as we close out 2018! We start off as usual with hobby progress (I think our shortest yet) before launching into Chapter Approved discussion! We then move onto Terrain releases, Fortifications and the place of useable faction terrain in 40k and as compared to Age of Sigmar... and then slowly get derailed into just general hobby blabber, rants and "Tomfoolery"So check out our final Season 2 episode before we start off with Season 3 in 2019!Listen/Subscribe on iTunes Listen/Subscribe on SpotifyListen/Subscribe on Google PlayListen/Subscribe on Stitcher 00:00 Intro01:47 Hobby Progress44:05 Terrain and General DiscussionSongs and SoundclipsBlue Mark- Atlan UrtagKaap mere- BugotakClip 1, 2, 3 - Ghazghkull Thraka
I've been very slack about updating the blog lately, but that isn't because I haven't been gaming. With the new year just round the corner, I thought I would rush to the end and summarise the whole of Round Five before the new year. Belt up, it's going to be a bumpy ride.My plan was for this to be the last normal round of the campaign. After this I only want to play one final fight which will involve all six teams and settle the overall winner of the campaign. But that's going to take a fair bit of time and planning, so probably won't happen for a little while yet. This round will be crucial though, as it will establish the final leader board, which will determine which teams have the advantage in the final fight. Game 5a - Wyches vs Sisters of BattleI rolled up the Ambush scenario with the Sisters as Defenders. The Sisters took up a defensive position on top of the Promethium Refinery. This gave them a good vantage point, but, unfortunately for them, all the Sisters had to deploy in the centre, with none of

Work has been occupying most of my time, so it's been a while since I've blogged. But here's a quick post about the background of my Shadow War: Armageddon kill team, and the first two models that I've finished: Read more »
My Sisters of Battle are gearing up for the Shadow War: Armageddon campaign. I have a limited supply of parts and models to pull from; I don't want to scour eBay for odd models or buy entire units from GW. If they release new Adepta Sororitas kits, fine
