Another week and another Sisters Bulletin and this is one of the best todate. We get a look at the Sister Hospitaller and she is pretty awesome!
Hospitaller throughout history have tended to the needs of the sick and infirm, often wandering the battlefields and giving the last rights to those who lay far to wounded to be saved, their very name gives us the word Hospital. Often of religous orders they have been around for a long time in one form or another, going from knights hospitaller to army chaplains and then to field medics.
Hospitallers in the Sisters of Battle armies do more or less the same thing and tend to the sick and dying, having already pledged their lives to the service of the God Emperor of Mankind.
The miniature is thing of beauty and one of the best looking miniatures to come from Games Workshops design studio in a long, long time, and given how much they put out each year, that is saying quite a lot. In fact I would go as far as to say this is perhaps my favourite model for 2019 so far!
The Sister Hospitaller is a well detailed miniature that is in a very dramatic pose, stood over the prone body of a fallen Adeptus Sororitas Sister, her robes of office flying around with a really great fluidity, with litanies of faith being born by doves, givjgmng this miniature a large footprint which is further added to by the expertly crafted scenic base. With a choice of build options for the model this is going to be a joy to paint.
The prone Battle Sister looks in a very bad way, helmet and bolter dropped where she was fallen and the medical instruments of the Hospitaller are more than ready to do their job. The base really makes this miniature pop and I can see many none Sisters players picking this miniature up!
The release date has yet to be confirmed by Games Workshop, though I would imagine it will be after the launch of the new starter for Kill Team, most likely in November or December to cash in on the Christmas rush. That said they could surprise us with an announcement any day now, these days it is not as easy to predict with Games Workshop as it used to be.
