So Sisters rumors have started which makes me excited and apprehensive all at once (which I think is fair considering the last time we had rumors a sub-par digital only codex was released). That said please take with liberal amounts of salt.

From Bolter and Chainsword:
Ishagu said:
A Hardback Sororitas Codex with plastic kits. I was told something similar by someone in the know not long ago. It could be true...
From Warseer:
Sephillion said:
I’ve heard more credible things about Sisters being later (next year), and the fact that they would redo Dark Angels, CSM and Daemons so soon… instead of redoing the problem Codices… seems like whoever wrote this just assumed GW would follow the same order.
Pulled from Dakka:

With earlier rumors of a potential Adepta Sororitas codex release on the schedule, I was asking a few questions. Here is a response to the status of a Sister's of Battle release.

Please remember that these are rumors

Via Steve the Warboss
@Sororitas
After the featuring in the Shields of Baal Campaign i think its possible for a near Sororitas release. The Codex is complete and can be released every time. More rumors do not exist at the moment.
@CSM
There are rumors for an khorne theme suppliment in march, maybe the first with new profiles. The release of an new Codex in the summer is still possible
And the speculated release scheduled puts them as a "late May"

LATE MAY
Maybe Sororitas
From Jared van Kell on BoLS (take extra salt):
Adeptus Sororitas are due this year but from what is being said it sounds like it is going to be as part of a box set similar to Shield of Baal.
From Hellios on Bolter and Chainsword:
I can 100% confirm that GW has newer SoB infantry sculpts. What I can't comment on is if GW has plans to release those sculpts. I use the word 'newer' because I consider them to be fairly old now.

If GW is going to start releasing small forces (FW AdMech has been selling well?), it would be a good time to drop some new SoBs. Even if plastic SoBs weren't cheaper, they can provide a lot of bits on a sprue. Celestians, Dominions, Retributors, and normal sisters in one box. Seraphim in another... HQ box/clamshell that fits well with the new plastics... And 'pure' SoB are fine, maybe a Repressor if they feel like pushing the boat out.
And some speculation from the comments on Faeit that I think makes sense (based on rumors of releases) by Chris Royles:
GW are simply responding to mArket and competitor risk.

GW Knights = Dreamforge Leviathon
GW Greater Deamon = Creature Caster
GW SoB = Raging Heroes Sisters if Mercy.

Timing is far too coincidental.
GW cannot afford for any one of the above to gain market share and do a better job.
And that's where we sit until more comes out or until someone can get the Devs to drop hints, or all the above.

If they actually go forwards with this, I will eat my current WIP Project. With BBQ Sauce and a nice Chianti. Sisters have been a long rumor for years - and adding to this, I overheard one of the reasons they never released Plastic Sisters was that it was impossible for the components to fit on the frame without resorting to snap fit construction.

Then again, that particular line I think is at least several years old, and GW Plastics technology has come a long way since then. I've also heard various other things, from the usual "Army being Squatted" to "GW can't find a sculptor to work on them since Victoria Lamb left".

I think right now the prospective odds are on the same level as Plastic Thunderhawk Gunship and 40K AdMech. It would be nice, but it's unlikely right now.

Also, Sisters being released as the response to Raging Heroes? Emperor help us all if they get redesigned to look anything remotely like them...

I'll take what I can get. Either way, glorious if it happens, but I just don't see it happening - especially since the Rumors can be summed up as "They're coming! They're not quite they're yet but they're on their way!"

...You know, the unspoken Tagline for Game of Thrones X3

I think this will be the year we finally see Sisters, the sculpting isnt a problem, you only need to look at the many warhammer fantasy kits produced in tge last two years to see how far GW have come with dividing up minis in funky ways to get them onto a plastic sprue. As for who can make sculpt, jes goodwin still works at GW and will no doubt be responsible for the design and development like he was for the dark eldar revamp, plus considering the time scales already passed i would say jes is definitely the lead designer as he takes forever but when he hits the mark hes the golden goose.

Every time we get rumors of sisters getting a codex release it's been spot on, and we haven't had model rumors since Jul 13 so it's not like we get them all the time.

I won't be shocked if we get a new book in a couple months. New models will surprise me though.

I'll take the same view I'm adopting on B&C and the Sisters Facebook group I belong to. When I see previews then I'll get excited. Until them I'm happy with with my just short of 2k Sisters, they may be metal but they are well loved. I think I've just become apathetic to the idea of Sisters getting a hardback or plastics. Saying for years we haven't been squatted, fighting the good fight etc just to be laughed at by others players, I've just given up caring and will just wait until I actually see something more than "I heard from X about Y and they will come X"

From a little Ripper Swarm to me:
I've always believed if we get redone that's what would happen. If it's true then I'm happy. However I hope the Exorcist keeps its Organ, they can tweak everything else, just keep that in all of its glory.

As an honoured Battle Sister, I never leave my Covenant without my Flamer, still trying to get used to the Heavy Flamer though.
Well my Sisterhood has the typical supply issues that comes with being an unsupported army. You know, when even the Flamers are a pricetag nobody wants to pay unless they're OBSCENELY rich X3

I've got plenty of flamers...........though you would have to be ok with using xeno technology, as soon as I find a way to get them to work without a battlesuit.

How you got a Ripper to tell you anything without tearing your face off and turning you into fine, fine biomass is something I'll probably never know.
The secret is to stroke it and love it and call it George.
