Games Workshop launched the pre-order for their new Sisters of Silence and Adeptus Custodes, along with the new Talons of the Emperor Boxed Set including the above mentionned sets and more.
This multi-part plastic kit contains; 5 Custodian Guard, 5 Sisters of Silence, 1 Contemptor Dreadnought, 1Venerable Land Raider, 1 Null-Maiden Rhino. This set also contains two 24-page softback Codexes, which are not available in print anywhere else. These feature full rules for fielding Custodian Guard and Sisters of Silence in games of Warhammer 40,000.
The Sisters of Silence, also known as the Silent Sisterhood, were the anti-psychic militant arm of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica during the Great Crusade and were internally referred to as the organisation's Departmento Investigates. The Sisters of Silence, while nominally under the control of the Astra Telepathica, quickly became the Emperor's personal force. Along with the Custodes, the Sisters of Silence are the only military force of the Imperium permitted to walk freely within the inner Imperial Palace.
The Adeptus Custodes, more commonly known as Custodians are the guardians of the Imperial Palace and the Golden Throne. Created using far more advanced gene-craft than that used for the Adeptus Astartes, it is whispered that the Custodian's genetic template was forged from the Emperor's flesh as the Adeptus Astartes' was from that of the Primarchs. Each Custodian is a unique work of art, the product of genetic lore collected over many lifetimes, making their physical build and martial prowess vastly superior to that of a standard Space Marine.
