Adepta Sosoritas by slaine69 Adepta Sosoritas by slaine69
a commission piece for Eva Upfold, happy birthday Eva!!

he Adepta Sororitas (also "the Sisterhood" or "Daughters of the Emperor") are an all-woman subdivision of the religious organization known as the Ecclesiarchy or Ministorum. The Sisterhood's Orders Militant serve as the Ecclesiarchy's fighting arm, mercilessly rooting out corruption and heresy within humanity and every organization of the Adeptus Terra.

There is naturally some overlap between the duties of the Sisterhood and the Inquisition; for this reason, although the Inquisition and the Sisterhood remain entirely separate organizations, the Orders Militant of the Sisterhood also act as the unofficial militant arm of the Inquisition's Ordo Hereticus.

The Adepta Sororitas and the Sisters of Battle are commonly regarded as the same thing, but the latter title technically refers only to the Orders Militant, the best-known part of the organization.

The Sisterhood serves as Ministorum's only official military forces because the Decree Passive rules that the Ecclesiarchy cannot maintain any men under arms. This was supposed to limit the power of the Ecclesiarchy. However the Ministorum were able to circumvent this decree by using the all-female force of the Sisterhood.

Actually I always wanted to know how the Sisters are able to carry/use bolters since they come from the same place as Commissars and there wasn't any details of them going through the same stuff as the Space Marines.

They have power armour the same armour as Space Marines. Anyway Commissars can use bolters, Commissar Yarrick uses a storm bolter and bolters have no recoil it says that like a million times in the fluff.

aside from worshipping the emperor and not being a heretic, any other means of spiritual guidance like I dunno caring about your fellow man and not being a selfish incompetent asshole

Enemies of the Emperor beware
Vengeance comes for you on wings of death.

I love this picture!
The sisterhood is perhaps my favorite out of all of the imperium's forces.

this picture just catches that 'mood' befitting of a sister of battle.

YES YES! YES! Usually sister artworks are something like Miss Terra 41567 competition but this is not. They truly are daugthers of the emperor scorching the unclean with their righteous fury, but they are still feminine and graceful. Your armor designs, as always, are breathtaking. The light from the heavy weapons and the halo make a nice triangle and the lights in the background work excellent with the theme, It is as though im feeling their burning fury. My only complaint is that the chicks with the heavy bolter and the chainsword have cartoonish faces with small foreheads, making them look somewhat brutish.
Thanks a thousand times for this wonderful piece of art!

Love it! I think the armour size is perfect; more realistic than the curvaceous armour the models have.

I must say that this is some real nice work you got here. But in my opinion, you should replace the plasma pistol the Canoness with a chain/power sword facing downward. A single pistol look kinda lonely here.

As much as I hate the Sisters every time I play against them on the board, this painting is impressive.
I think the legs could be a bit less bulky, but maybe that's just me :)

haha yeah I know I was kidding around, I don't think my particular brand of sarcasm comes of to well in text form and anyone who can carry a heavy bolter instead of putting it on a tripod is badass in my books
