New Style Facebook Header ep122

Episode 122 of The Independent Characters covers our Show of Force episode titled Faith and Fire, in which we talk all about the Adepta Sororitas, also known as The Sisters of Battle!

Carl is joined by Adan and Jody to discuss as we delve into the lore and function of the Sisters of Battle. We discuss everything about their backstory and how they play in the current edition of Warhammer 40k.

Additionally, we have a great interview with none other than James Swallow - the author of three different Sisters of Battle stories (Faith and Fire, Hammer and Anvil, and the Red and Black Audio Drama).

Hold on tight, because this is over 3 hours of great content. We hope you enjoy the show!

  1. Great show as always, however one thing that confused me. You guys kept discussing how separated the Sisters are now from the Inquisition, compared to older fluff, however unless i've missed something drastic, the Sisters are still considered one of the Chamber Millitants of the Inquisition. Although an Inquisitor can employ the services of any branch of the Imperial service, including the military, each major Ordo also maintains a dedicated Chamber Militant representing the most dedicated, experienced, and effective forces that Ordo can call on. The Ordo Malleus' Chamber Militant are the Grey Knights. The Ordo Hereticus' Chamber Militant are the Orders Militant of the Adepta Sororitas, also known as the Sisters of Battle. The Ordo Xenos' Chamber Militant are the Deathwatch. The Ordo Hereticus (The Threat Within) - Investigates and roots out heresy, mutation, and rogue psykers from humanity, and polices the Ecclesiarchy. The Ordo Hereticus was founded following the events of the Age of Apostasy.
  2. The Sisters are part of the Ecclesiarchy but have a formal arrangement with the Ordo Hereticus to help when needed. When they combine their powers they become the witch hunters and get to wear cool hats.
  3. Really would love a transfer set from those Penitent Engines.
