Warhammer Fest 2021: The Adepta Sororitas are coming

The Adepta Sororitas are coming and Games Workshop kicked off their Warhammer 40,000 portion of Warhammer Fest 2021 showing off a lot of the new toys.

Morvenn Vahl, Abbess Sanctorum of the Adepta Sororitas is the supreme commander of the Adepta Sororitas as well as a High Lord of Terra. Unlike many leaders, she likes to be in the battle leading from the front line.

Morvenn Vahl, Abbess Sanctorum of the Adepta Sororitas wears Purgator Mirabilis, a Paragon Warsuit and superior quality. The Adeptus Custodes have also allowed her to wield the legendary blade the Lance of Illumination. With her mentioned in the second book of the “War of Charadon”, expect Morvenn Vahl to be a big player to come.

Aestred Thurga and Agathae Dolan are the bearers of the banner known as the Auto-Tapestry of the Emperor’s Judgement. The standard can help turn the tide of battle.

Dogmata is the judge, jury, and executioner of the Orders Militant and ready to swing her mace. Great at melee combat, she also helps Sisters redouble their efforts when performing actions or holding objectives.

Palatine came in the “Piety and Pain” battlebox but will soon be available on her own.

Celestian Sacresants have been teased but now we get a look at the entire squad. Featuring halberds, maces, and large shields, they’re bodyguards without peer.

Paragon Warsuits have already been revealed but we get a bit more information on them. The Paragon Warsuits are perfect for advancing through thick enemy fire and engaging in hand-to-hand combat. They feature firepower to rival a Dreadnought having a heavy bolter, heavy flamer, or multi-melta. Then there’s a shoulder-mounted secondary weapon system like a grenade launcher or storm bolters. Then they also have a large war blade for melee combat. There are three in the unit (and upcoming box).

The Castigator brings some fire support the Sisters. Much like a Predator, it has a turret-mounted main weapon and sponson-mounted heavy bolters. You can choose between a twin-barreled autocannon or battle cannon as the main turret weapon.

You’ll also want to get Codex: Adepta Sororitas to get all of the rules for these new weapons to cleanse the galaxy of the impure. The codex is 128 pages that updates their lore, has 35 datasheets, Crusade rules, and more.

It introduces Hymms of Battle, verses sung by the Domata that venerate the God-Emperor, and Minoris convictions to help represent an Order Militant of your own creation.

Warhammer Fest 2021: Soulblight Gravelords Revealed

We were expecting the next step for the old-school Vampire Counts would be revealed during Warhammer Fest 2021. And we were right with the Soulblight Gravelords!

New miniatures and units were revealed and this is an army to keep an eye on. Soulblight Gravelords will feature a battletome that will have several vampiric bloodlines, each with their own history and culture.

Lauka Vai, the Mother of Nightmares leads the Vampires of the Avengorii dynasty to battle. An absolute centerpiece to a Soulblight Gravelords army.

Lauka Vai, the Mother of Nightmares is a mix of bat, drake, and humanoid. You can also build the miniature into a Vengorian Lord, a new leader option for the Soulblight Gravelords.

The Vengorian Lord are powerful warriors and wizards fighting at the head of Soulblight Gravelords armies.

Radukar the Wolf is alive and now Radukar the Beast, full of animal rage. He’s plotting revenge oozing of power in his corrupted form.

Belladamma Volga, First of the Vyrkos is an ancient vampire and powerful sorceror. Belladamma Volga, First of the Vyrkos is the matriarch of the Vyrkos and a force to be reckoned with.

Warhammer Fest 2021: After Soul Wars is…

With the Broken Realms saga wrapping up, the Soul Wars will come to a close. The storyline has shifted the power balance in the Mortal Realms which has forced some big players to get involved.

Lord Kroak and the Talon and Voice of Slaanesh have been revealed and during Warhammer Fest 2021, Games Workshop teased a bit more of what we’ll be seeing for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.

Warhammer Fest 2021: Kragnos is Coming

Warhammer Fest 2021 has kicked off and an ancient god has awakened. Kragnos is free from his mystical bonds. The ancient god of earthquakes, Slayer of Dragons has returned to the Mortal Realms.

Kragnos is the last survivor of an ancient race. The god is worshipped by the forces of Destruction.

Kragnos is armed with his legendary shield Tuskbreaker and armed with the Dread Mace.

Those within 12″ benefit with 1 added to the Bravery characteristic for friendly Destruction units. Kragnos can also shrug off spells by rolling 3D6 and if the roll is greater than the casting value, Kragnos ignores the effects of the spell.

Broken Realms: Kragnos is coming too, which will finish out the series.
