A TALE OF ONE HOBBYIST: INTERIM UPDATE!

I took a trip to the local Games Workshop this morning to collect my order that I placed at the start of the week.
I had treated myself as I had a little win on the lottery and ordered a Goblin Doom Diver, some Cave Squigs and a Squig Herd for my upcoming Orcs & Goblins army.
When I was in the store, I realised that I still had some of my £60 budget for the month of March, so I snagged a box of night goblins, the latest issue of White Dwarf Weekly, and the new Horus Heresy novel Vengeful Spirit.
I’m really chuffed with the latest purchases, and I’ve got loads to be getting on with!
For now it’s back to the Skaven and I’ll hopefully have a unit of Clanrats completed today and then I’ll be moving onto a Warp Lightning Cannon.
Onwards!

Adepta Sororitas

The majority of the Sisterhood’s initial membership was recruited from the pre-existing Brides of the Emperor, the all-female bodyguard force employed by the tyrannical High Lord Goge Vandire. Loyal to the Emperor, the Brides (initially called the Daughters of the Emperor, but renamed by Vandire) were misled by the insane Vandire into fulfilling his own designs. When the truth of the matter, and Vandire’s corruption and failure to serve the will of the Emperor, was revealed by the efforts of Sebastian Thor, the leader of the Daughters executed Vandire in his own audience chamber. The Daughters of the Emperor were at a loss as to what their purpose should be after this event, and so the Ecclesiarchy took the opportunity to recruit and indoctrinate them into the newly formed Adepta Sororitas, the Ecclesiarchy’s all-female military, circumventing the Decree Passive’s strictures forbidding the Ecclesiarchy to maintain a force of “men under arms.”

Marauder Miniatures Dwarf Slayers released in 1990, pictured in Citadel’s “Green Catalogue” in 1993.  I assume that fellow gamer Peter Jackson was referencing these when he made Dáin a slayer with a red mohawk and tattoos in the final Hobbit movie.  (Image via Darkblade’s Quest on blogspot.)
