Games Workshop has announced a new wave of models for the Adepta Sororitas in Warhammer 40K. Reveals made at Warhammer Fest have showcased a wide variety of new models for the Sisters of Battle, from new elite infantry picks to a stunning new leader in a suit of Paragon armor.
The new array of models rounds out the Adepta Sororitas range, alongside the long-awaited announcement of a codex containing the recently revitalized Sisters catalog. This comes as the first part of a wave of Warhammer 40K tabletop announcements, with the breadth of the new models coming as somewhat of a surprise for a faction that has already seen a great deal of care as of late.
The highlight of the announcements was High Abbess Morvenn Vahl, the supreme commander of the Adepta Sororitas. In short, she's set to be one of the army's most powerful warriors- standing alongside even the Saints of the Sororitas. This is alongside four other character models, the banner-bearing Aestred Thurga with Hagiolater Agathae Dolan, and the generic Palatine and Dogmata heroes. This brings the army to an impressive 16 character options, which gives a freedom of choice beginning to rival that of the iconic Space Marines.
Non-character offerings were the elite, shielded Celestian Sacresancts, the towering Paragon Warsuit, and the armored Castigator battle tank, giving the Adepta Sororitas a variety of new heavy options. Recent successes in the competitive Warhammer 40k scene for the Sororitas might get driven into overdrive by the arrival of these new units and their codex- much like has happened with the Drukhari codex recently. While not discussed at Warhammer Fest, it's likely that the Sisters of Battle will see representation in the upcoming Warhammer x Magic: The Gathering crossover.
The Sisters of Battle have recently received representation off the tabletop as well, with a major update to VR title Battle Sister. Games Workshop seem keen to promote the Sisters of Battle right now, after a successful reboot of the faction in 2019. Fans of the fanatic battle-nuns have plenty to get into in the near future.
In current media, gamers can't look anywhere without there being some form of subscription service. Whether that is for TV shows and movies like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Max or for video game services, they're everywhere. Of course, in talking description, PS Plus and Xbox Game Pass stand out. The latter has been hailed by many as the best value in gaming today, offering a library of hundreds of games for a cheap price, but PS Plus is no slouch either.
In terms of form, PS Plus is more comparable to Games with Gold, but there's really no comparison there. At the same time, comparing PS Plus now to PS Plus in the entirety of 2020 proves one big point that may not need it: PS Plus is Sony's premier service, with value that is hard to believe.
When considering PS Plus merits, there's three main things to consider: the price of it, the value of the games made available, and the viability of someone downloading those games. After all, concerning the latter, if no one wants to play it then it's not really savings. Notably, 2020 saw an increase in downloads of PS Plus, and it's highly likely that it's continued this year. Thus far in 2021, more launch games have been offered to coincide with PS5 releases, and that itself is hard to ignore. At any rate, even a fraction of games last year made up the subscription cost (which, full priced, comes in at about $119.98 every year without discounts), and it can be said now that roughly claiming a sixth of the available games makes up the value of this year alone.
