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 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.
