Aside from the unthinkable act of outright heresy, there is no greater
sin amongst the Adepta Sororitas than when a Repentia flees from battle.
The sole duty of these Sisters is to atone for their failings in
battle, and to run from this fate is an evil for which there can be no
forgiveness. As punishment, these wayward Repentia are wired into the
crucible of a Mortifier. Based upon the same mechanical chassis as a
Penitent Engine, a Mortifier bears additional neuro-agoniser arrays and
obloquial enhancers that amplify the pilot’s self-loathing
exponentially. Metallic bolts driven into the Repentia’s bones leave her
unable to move or even scream for death, while the baffle hood placed
over her head prevents her from hearing any words of piety that are
spoken in her presence.
To those Repentia who not only fled, but betrayed their Sisters in
battle, an even worse fate awaits. After being wired into the crucible
of their Mortifier they are further entombed behind thick adamantine
casing. This sarcophagus protects their tortured bodies from incoming
fire and desperately swung blades, denying them the release of death.
Known as Anchorites, the Sisters behind these lifeless masks are forced
to face their torment in absolute isolation, enduring years or even
decades of agony before meeting their end.
Each Mortifier is equipped with two ranged weapons chosen from heavy
bolters or heavy flamers and two melee weapons chosen from penitent
buzz-saws or penitent flails. Any Mortifier can instead be assembled as
an Anchorite. Alternatively, each kit can build a Penitent Engine, which
are equipped with heavy flamers instead of heavy bolters.
The kit comprises 126 components and includes all of the weapons and
assembly options for all three variants. The model comes supplied with
2x Citadel 50mm Round Bases.
