In our last bulletin, we promised that we’d take a look at the first finished vehicle of the new Adepta Sororitas range. Well, we felt inclined to spoil you a little, so we’re actually going to show off TWO fully painted Sororitas Rhinos!
The Rhino is the most ubiquitous vehicle in the Imperial armoury, regularly used by the warriors of the Adeptus Astartes, Adepta Sororitas, Inquisition, and even the Astra Telepathica’s Sisters of Silence to transport their squads into battle.
Given their functional purpose as armoured personnel carriers, Rhinos are seldom adorned beyond identifying paintwork and iconography. However, the Sisters of Battle lead lives of utmost dedication and treat even these utilitarian vehicles with great respect. As such, Sororitas Rhinos are often decorated with filigree and other ostentatious, or holy, accoutrements far beyond those of other Imperial institutions.
If there was any doubt as to the level of craftsmanship applied to the Sororitas Rhino by their artisans – by which we mean our talented team of miniatures designers – check out this optional hunter-killer missile…
Amazing, isn’t it? The heart of the Sororitas Rhino kit will be its upgrade frame, which is chock full of components to dedicate your vehicle to the service of the Sisters of Battle. As well as arched viewing ports for the driver, double-sided doors with embossed details and fleur-de-lys towing lugs, there are loads of other intricate details too.
You can decorate the flanks of the Rhino with gilded filigree, the armoured exhaust casings with hanging parchments, and add icons from any of the main Orders to show its allegiance. There is even a relic weapon that you can attach to the vehicle’s hull – after all, what better way is there to consecrate a holy blade than by spilling the blood of heretics?
Here is a second painted Rhino, featuring a gunner aiming the pintle-mounted storm bolter and a variety of alternative details.
Another interesting element that features on this version is the memento mori mounted to the rear. These morbid reliquaries display the skull of a fallen martyr with one half of the face covered by a ceramic death shroud.
If the Sororitas Rhino looks this good, just imagine how awesome the new Immolator and Exorcist miniatures will be…
In any case, we’ll be back in a couple of weeks with another Battle Sister Bulletin, so be sure to check back with us then. In the meantime, to whet your appetite once more, we invite you to take another peek at the incredible Adepta Sororitas: Sisters of Battle Army Set coming out in November.
