For the final New Model Monday feature over at Warhammer Community, Games Workshop has revealed a great new model for Warhammer 40k'soften-neglected Adeptus Sororitas. The new Dogmata miniature is the grim-faced leader of the matriarchal chapter of the god-emperor's forces, and she's really going to strike fear into the heretics, as well as into her own forces.
The Dogmata - Warhammer 40K Sisters of Battle
The Adeptus Sororitas, more colloquially known as the Sisters of Battle, has been an often-neglected part of the Warhammer 40k universe. It's not hard to see why with so many species and armies fighting for attention and constant updates. Luckily for fans of the sisters of battle, recently Games Workshop appears to be shining a little more love on the sisters, the latest outcome of which is the new Dogmata.
Like many military chapters of the imperium, the Adeptus Sororitas needs leaders. Enter the Dogmata. This new miniature is a brand-new HQ choice that will be available for Adeptus Sororitas players that take a similar role to the Chaplain of the Adeptus Astartes, being an embodiment of righteousness that is spurs those under their command to even greater feats of holy fury in the name of the emperor.
Basically, she's going to make your other units work better, harder, and presumably be even harder than usual to scatter and flee. It's not hard to see why as well. Anyone she catches slacking off is liable to find themselves consigned to a Repentia squad to atone or find themselves 'piloting' a Mortifier if they're really unlucky.
Right now, we actually don't know much about the Dogmata, or how she'll work in Warhammer 40k. Considering the usual role of HQ units, it seems likely that she's going to be applying some sort of wide-ranging effects and abilities that'll affect the morale of the rest of the army under her. She'll probably also have some pretty gross abilities because, hey, this is Warhammer 40K after all.
Keep an eye out in White Dwarf if you want the latest updates on her abilities, and you can check out her reveal over the Warhammer Community site.
