Adepta Sororitas Codex is Complete/ CSM Supplement



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

@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.

  1. Just a thought, IF Sisters of Battle are ready then GW can take their time releasing all the new kits. The flexible release schedule gives them the freedom to do that. Look how long it took for Dark Eldar to get all their kits for example. GW could go that route or take even more time if they want.

    1. A very good point, although it may clash with the current trend of no codex entry=no model. I think they'd rather get it released pronto so there's no gaps to fill.

    2. Sorry I got that round the wrong way, I meant no model=no codex entry lol

    3. They could do the models first as part of the WD and then drop the codex once everything is out.

    4. We already heard something similar in past - codexes like Necrons or Blood Angels were ready for release for months, they are just waiting to fit them in their schedule. It might be also to maximize our buying power - too much at the same time and no one will have enough cash to spend it on everything - we will have to start choosing more carefully. It's already been a crazy ride for last 2 years.

    5. thing is they don't need to even release the codex first as one already exists in digital, they could release say plastic sisters over the spring, and get all the "current kit" up to date. and then put out the codex in the summer.

  2. I actually don't want to believe this because if these two and the rumoured Harliquins do get released I'm going to have to declare myself bankrupt this year....

  3. They have to update csm because i'm going to be moving and in between jobs. Lol as the Dark Gods will

  4. A codex without new models is rather pointless. There was a rumor a while back of Inquisition and Sisters getting a hard cover release after Necrons. Right now this is all we have heard the supposed Sisters update. Until we hear they are getting replacement models there is not much to get your hopes up about. That said, I really do hope they get something.

  6. I would be ok with no new csm models in the next codex. Got plenty already!

  7. Honestly not bothered by a new Sister's Codex. New model's and you've got my attention. I'd happily add a full 20 strong squad as allies to any army if wasn't going to cost me £100+.

  8. People still believe Sisters will get a new codex/kits. Priceless.

    1. People still rag on others for liking an army and hoping to see them finally treated right. Priceless.

    2. Lets be realistic here. How many times have rumors hinted at a sister release over the years? And how many rumors even came close to being factual?

    3. +1 Zion

      It's a new GW world...if they can make an Imperial Knights Codex, kill Tyrion and pump out a torrid release schedule...they could totally release a plastic Sisters dual kit and bring out their Codex. It'll happen, just a matter of time!

    4. @McBlobbicus: Not that many actually (as a Sisters player I keep pretty good track of Sisters rumors), and every time there was a rumor run up about a codex that I know of we got a codex. We just didn't get models with the codexes.

      The rumors for Sisters releases don't come around too often and more often than not if it's wrong it was wishlisting that someone ran with as a rumor and not something someone came out with as a fact (like what's being presented here).

    5. Is mcblobbicus actually mcdoogle?

    6. Good lord no, I'm not Mcdoogle lol.

    7. LOL sisters, although I would love to see them in plastic....

      Anyone want to buy a Plastic ThunderHawk

  9. I'm not going to get my hopes up for a new sisters stuff till it's physically in my hands, they could be up for pre order on the GW webstore and I still wouldn't quite believe it.

  10. Natfka, I think we're going to need a star rating on this.

  11. This guy full on guesses and you should know it, man. Said Mephiston and Vect were Lords of War. Vect ain't even in the book. He don't know squat.

    1. The fact that Vect isn't in the book means that he could still be a LOW, just via a datasheet release instead,

  12. I don't think that Sisters will get an actual codex, more like a series of dataslates so they could be updated in chunks as and when the design studio could do it. That's what Jes Goodwin & Phil Kelly said last year.

    The source could indicate that the dataslates are done, they may just be waiting on tooling or new model production. A full codex is a two year cycle with tooling for new sprues being created about a year down the line, but if Sisters aren't getting a full codex then that timescale is a bit off.

    1. depends on how major it is, I mean I think most sisters players would be happy with the 6th ed codex printed with a plastic sisters squad multi kit. it'd be a start at least

      Delete
    2. I'd be happier if they fixed the half of the codex that's useless at least so I could have more options with my army because right now it's so mono build it hurts.

      Delete
    3. The design studio did recognise that it needed a fair bit of work. Here's hoping!

  13. I hope they actually release a new sisters kit and don't keep the same finecast models. Sister Act 40k has the potential to sell like crazy. The one thing holding people back is the cost of the troop models.

    1. I -wish- Sisters were in Finecast. Then building the Penitent Engine would be easier.

  14. so all those skitarii rumours just seem to have vanished

  15. It's not the Sororitas Codex that people are waiting for, it's the Sororitas models!

    ReplyDelete
  16. If there is a new sisters codex, without models, I will get it. Remember they don't have a physical codex at the moment so there is a point to just releasing the codex. It would also inspire me to paint the squad I have still in it's packaging.

    The Annunake - "Annunake" is a Colshisian term which means alternatively "Princely Sons" or "Judges of Hell", and was used within the Word Bearers Legion to denote those Legionaries granted the honour of continuing their service within the armoured shell of a Dreadnought.

  18. 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.

    1. Especially with the way GW keeps the SoB line at a low cost - high profit status. Digital codex costs nothing (no printing and storage), the bare minimum amount of models with the basic troop box being 2.5 times the cost of any other army.

      Going by Raging Heroes Tough Girls KickStarter they will be able to provide look a like models and "Not SoB" models at a little more than Half the Cost of GW troop box. Special weapons and character models seem to be about the same cost compared to the SoB line.
