On the US site there are only 13 items listed under the Adepta Sororitas

St. Celestine - No longer available
Battle Canoness
Sister w/ Heavy Flamer
Jacobus
Penitent Engine
Exorcist
Sister w/ Heavy Bolter
Sister w/ Multi-Melta
Sister w/ Simulacrum Imperialis
Sister Superior w/ Bolter
Sister w/ Storm Bolter
Sister w/ Melta
Sister w/ Flamer

So Sisters Repentia are gone, at least on the US site.

Edit: It looks like you guys (Brits) have full squads still available, the new model, and that's pretty much the only difference.

^ 22 items on the Canadian site.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

We're back to 22 in the selection with the newly reconfigured squads, but

1. The Immolator has made it's return
2. Canoness Veridyan model in all its "we didn't make enough" glory... sold out in like a minute. Srsly GW)
3. Celestine was on Last Chance, now Sold Out.

So it'll drop to 21 soon enough, and 2 of those are a new model and the Immolator (please let that NOT be limited) which presumably take the place of 2 other models. I THINK it's just alternative Superiors this time...

In related news, a Seraphim squad (still in now 15-year-old metal) now costs 85 euros. Now realize that GW looks at sales numbers and then concludes that the Sisters aren't selling well... Idiots.

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

I guess this is relevant here despite being a cross-post from the C:IA thread:

Having been through the book, it appears that other than removing St. Celestine (and almost all fluff text) basically the only new content are the detachments (I'd probably just do combined arms rather than waste my time with a "for one turn per game" bonus) and battle objectives (gain victory points for having your warlord slain?! Does any other faction have a rule that rewards failure? Does it make any sense at all to say "well, it was a really close fight then I got lucky and he killed my warlord so I won"?). Actual options for the army are down, an existing model most sister players probably own is no longer usable in any way as you can't even run a jump pack Canoness (and haven't been able to for some time). I begin to feel like a smoker - it's theoretically legal to smoke but every year the places you're allowed to do so are constricted just a bit further.

The VP isn't a reward for you failing, it's to penalise your opponent for killing your warlord. It could actually end up making your warlord a lot more survivable. And as for options missing from the list, they did say from the outset that this is not a replacement for other codexes, just a means to allow players to build thematic Inquisitorial forces. GKs and DW are missing a couple of options from their codexes as well, I believe, so take a deep breath, and calm down.

To be sure, at first the 40k Fb page did indeed say C:IA replaced the previous digital Codices it represented but it seems now GW has rescinded that comment.

The product description on the GW webstore (Canadian version) says "A full army list for the Battle Sisters of the Adepta Sororitas". If it was just intended to "add thematic elements" to other armies, I would have expected something more like the GK, DW or AdMech sections, rather than a near complete reproduction of the Adepta Sororitas Codex, complete with Uriah Jacobus (but not Saint Celestine). The only positive possibility suggested by this is creating a physical book for the Sororitas rules that people are likely to own in the event a future supplement comes out with new stuff as with the Tau in Kauyon and Mont'ka, but to be blunt, I'll believe it when I see it, and it's easier to believe they cut Celestine because they're out of her model/were close to out at the time they were preparing the book and have a policy of not having options in codices that they don't produce miniatures for to prevent 3rd parties from stealing their thunder.

In any event, as the ebook codex doesn't format properly on my computer (something odd about the page length disagrees with my laptop's reading app) I suppose this qualifies as more useful than the ebook dex.

People will likely still let you use Celestine's eBook version on the table. She outlived a good number of other SCs as it was. And she may be back later, it would be thematically appropriate ;)

And note, while she TOO isn't in the book, Canoness Veridyan is a replacement SC. And one I'm inclined to call as OP for her price. A mere 20 points on top of the normal one, comes with a power weapon (normally 15pts) and gives every Adepta Sororitas unit in 12" Precision.

Those are some nice weapons you tucked in the back of your squad, would be a shame if something were to happen to them...
