In today’s Newsletter, Games Workshop unveiled the new cover art for the upcoming digital Codex: Adepta Sororitas.
The initial art shown in the White Dwarf preview was older, recycled artwork, but this one appears to be a newly commissioned piece? At least I haven’t seen it before.
#1 – Codex: Adepta Sororitas on October 19th
CODEX: ADEPTA SORORITAS
Sentinels of Terra isn’t the only new Digital title on its way later this month. From the 19th October, Codex: Adepta Sororitas will be released as the first digital exclusive codex. As a thank you for signing up to our newsletter, you lucky people get to be the first in the world to see the stunning new cover of the codex.
Update:A little bit more information from GW’s Digital Editions Facebook page:
It’s certainly based on the White Dwarf Sisters of Battle Codex, but with new additions to bring it in line with the new books. Things like Warlords table, new Ecclesiarchy Relics and an Altar of War. There’s also new artwork and an expanded background section.
#2 – Sentinels of Terra on October 26th
The newsletter pre-view doesn’t give much more than that on the Sisters of Battle.
There is, however a 24 (ePub) pages preview of the upcoming Sentinels of Terra supplement. Sentinels of Terra will be released a week after the Codex: Adepta Sororitas on October 26th.
SENTINELS OF TERRA
One of the most exciting things at Games Day this year, was the announcement of Sentinels of Terra, the first supplement for Codex: Space Marines.
Sentinels of Terra focuses on the 3rd Company of the Imperial Fists. The extensive background section of the supplement includes new artwork and background on the 3Rd Company, and focuses particularly on the legendary events of the Crusade of Thunder. There are also new rules to use with your Imperial Fists collection, including new Warlords Traits, Company Relics, army wide rules, Apocalypse formations, Plantestrike and Cities of Death stratagems and eight new missions to play.
Sentinels of Terra will be released on the 26th of October, both as an interactive edition for your iPad, and as an eBook Edition for Android, Kindle and iBooks. You’ll be able to pre-order your copy from the 19th of October.
We’ve put together a free preview of the eBook Edition of Sentinels of Terra, so you can get a taste of what to expect in the supplement.
Funny how Games Workshop Digital Editions turned so quickly form a side-project to the place where the hot stuff is happening.
I still don’t think the new Codex
Sisters of Battle Adepta Sororitas will be much more than an update of the White Dwarf army-list with a bit of 6th Edition flavour (Warlord Traits) added. However, new art at least raises the possibility of a positive surprise!
Let’s see what happens.
