According to BoLS at least:

40K: The Codices of 2015

The Army Books:
(release order is unknown, but the last rumors reported Necrons first)

- Necrons
- Dark Angels
- Chaos Marines
- Sororitas
- Chaos Daemons

The "Special Armies"
This category are the new rumored "small codex armies" that have only a handful of units, short pagecount codices, and are entirely new to the game (or have been out of print for decades).

- Harlequins (rumors say Februrary more regularly)
- Others (conflicting chatter of everything from Ad-Mech to Genestealer Cult, and even more exotic factions...)

In general these are the "Imperial Knight" type releases this year - designed to make a big splash and spike sales due to the fact the faction is entirely new miniatures. Look for 1-2 of these this year.
I want to believe in Sisters getting a release this year, but I'm not going to hold my breath on it.

I Feel a great disturbance in the warp, as if millions of heretics suddenly cried out in terror and were then burned alive. I fear something glorious has happened.

The "special army" thing sounds interesting, didn't they do that with the Tempestra? sounds like an interesting way to splash diversity into a army via allies without blowing your budget too much.

Don't DA already have a hardback codex?
they do, though it is a sixth edition codex and is 2 years old so i suppose is fair game if all others are to be updated to seventh too, plus they are an exceptionally popular space marine chapter, also i have noticed the ravenwing battle force has dropped off my order list so there could be some truth in it, might just be a quick rehash and new box art for the models without any new units, they did pretty well last time they were released in terms of new models,but i also wouldnt be too shocked to see some plastic characters,plastic chaplains in terminator armour? maybe a new dread?chaplain dread? deathwing dread? then again the blood angels picked up arguably two plastic kits they really didnt need, with the tactical and terminator assault squads, so dark angels could effectively roll up with any new plastic kit, so its not worth trying to guess.

looking at the list of possible releases its a perfectly sensible list, i honestly cant see GW not releasing Sisters this year, i dont think the range could be allowed to go on for yet another year without giving the players a new codex and new minis.

Bolter and Chainsword was only posting in response to the BoLS rumor. One person was claiming they heard 2016.

Either way I've started squirreling money away so when it comes out I can get all the nice stuff I want since I'll be starting the army again from scratch.

An exciting proposition, to get an update to C:CSM. But what, will they then update Black Legion and Crimson Slaughter, as well? I guess there wouldn't really be a reason to update them, though. Just a few army-wide rules and different wargear.

Must not take away my Axe of Blind Fury, though. That is my ONE request! Change anything else, short of my Juggerlord and his axe.

Same, I know people poo poo the idea of Sisters getting an update but I'm optimistic, especially in this current era where once 'Crons get done all the armies will be updated to within one edition. So if Sisters get done I'm optimistic it will be during 7th. So I've started saving up some money for the possible day they get a release. Admittedly if 8th comes around a still no Sisters then my confidence and optimism will be completely shot.

I do hope this whole mini dexes is a thing that continues though, I know some people are very fond of Imperial Knights and Tempestus. It us also a nice way to keep the game without having to 'overhaul' each book 'needlessly' every edition. It gives things like Harliequins and Ad Mech abit of game time and a way to get models. Almost reminds me of the old Codex approved.

hmm, so it doesn't look like they are doing a whole new CSM codex, just a supplement? Trying to decide if i want to go ahead and buy some new CSM models or hold off for the update.
