Sororitas who fall short of the Sisterhood's stringent codes of service are stripped of their wargear and cast out from the Order in which they served. Known as Repentia, they are banded together with others who have fallen from grace, and in these squads they are given the opportunity to wash away their sins with the blood of the faithless.
Adepta Sororitas Canoness
Canonesses are the martial and spiritual commanders of the Orders Militant. Each is a shining example of purity and dedication of purpose, a veteran warrior of many hundreds of battles, and a slayer of the faithless in numerous war zones
Canonesses are the martial and spiritual commanders of the Orders Militant. Each is a shining example of purity and dedication of purpose, a veteran warrior of many hundreds of battles, and a slayer of the faithless in numerous war zones. But it takes more than just skill in combat to be granted such a position of command in the Adepta Sororitas. To be a Canoness requires a combination of strong leadership, shrewd tactical genius and sheer overarching faith in the Emperor.
The kit builds a single Canoness. She can be equipped with a choice of bolt pistol, plasma pistol, inferno pistol or condemnor boltgun in her left hand. Her right hand be assembled holding a choice of chainsword, power sword, blessed blade, null rod or brazier of holy fury.
This set is supplied in 26 plastic components and contains a Citadel 32mm Round Base.
The Adepta Sororitas train rigorously and fight with ferocious zeal, pious serenity, and tireless skill. These devout warriors annihilate heretical cults, xenos, mutants, and the abominations of daemonkind as they spread the light of the God-Emperor with fury and flame.
Where the Triumph of Saint Katherine marches, there shines the Emperor’s radiance. With every step, this funerary procession spreads the glory of the martyred Matriarch further across the galaxy, scattering before it the enemies of the faith and instilling in the Sisters of Battle the fiery conviction of Katherine herself. Yet it is not only the founder of the Order of Our Martyred Lady who is venerated by the Triumph, for through its presence are the spirits of all six Matriarchs carried to the front lines.
Aestred Thurga is a powerful warrior in her own right, but she recognises, with great humility, that the ancient relic standard she carries is far more important than she can ever be. She will gladly die to protect the Auto-Tapestry of the Emperor’s Judgement, while the Sisters she fights alongside are inspired to carry out great deeds of faith in its presence – feats recorded by the Hagiolater, Agathae Dolan.
Used exclusively by the Adeptus Ministorum, the Immolator-pattern armoured assault transport is a variant on the Rhino chassis. Atop the hull of each Immolator is mounted an elaborate turret arrangement that incorporates a stained-armaglass ballistic shield, auto-choral targeting array and gunner's nest linked to a twinned pair of devastating heavy weapons.
Arco-flagellants lope alongside faithful armies in packs, their lash-like limbs whipping back and forth as they follow their priestly masters to battle. When the enemy is sighted, they are driven into a frenzied killing rage by a potent cocktail of adrenal stimulants and neural kill-signals, whereupon they hurl themselves into battle with no thought for self-preservation or restraint. Hacking and slashing with cyber-implanted flails, pneu-mattocks and cleavers, they fight on dementedly until there is nothing left of their foes but a pile of mutilated corpses.
The Rhino armoured personnel carrier has been a mainstay of the Imperial military forces since the earliest days of the Great Crusade. Fashioned from a Standard Template Construct, Rhinos are exceptionally durable, robust and easy to operate. The Rhinos used by the Militant Orders are magnificently decorated with filigree and holy icons. Applied and maintained by masterful artisans, these embellishments honour the machine spirit of each Rhino and celebrate its role as a deliverer of the Emperor's divine judgement.
The role of Imagifier is sacred amongst the Orders Militant. To these fervent Sisters falls the task of extolling the virtues of fallen Sororitas, and of preaching their deeds amidst the din of battle so that the martyr's spirit may inhabit the warriors of the Order. An Imagifier bears a stanchion mounted with a graven image of a revered martyr. Held aloft, this image serves as a locus of faith to the Sisters of Battle and a beacon of martial purity, inspiring nearby Sisters to new heights of violence and stoicism in the service of the Emperor.

A Sister Dialogus drowns out the filthy war cries of the enemy with shouts of exalting praise to the God-Emperor. She is a locus of faith in the Adepta Sororitas battle line, standing upon fire-swept promontories, arm thrust proudly out with her staff of office in an iron grip as shots whine around her. Her laud hailer amplifies her inspirational rhetoric over the din of battle, and through broadcasts to vox-beads and sensoria arrays she ensures that all nearby Sororitas can benefit spiritually from her deep well of holy knowledge.
