It's time for a full all inclusive roundup of the Adepta Sororitas Rumors that are floating around here there and everywhere on the web. As usual I'll update this post with new content as it filters through in the coming weeks.

I've posted the following Adepta Sororitas rumors in chronological order starting with the newest ones at the top and the older to the bottom.

Sororitas Rundown:

- R&D on the entire line is complete, and the range is all new in plastic.
- 5-model combo-unit Sisters infantry kit
- 3 model Sisters unit on 50mm bases kit
- 5 model Sisters unit on 32mm bases kit (different from the infantry unit listed above)
- Sororitas combo unit vehicle kit "A" kit
- Sororitas combo unit vehicle kit "B" kit
- Sororitas Walker/Monstrous Creature vehicle kit
- 3 clampack Sororitas characters

These are on ice and only await release scheduling by GW.

Warhammer 40,000 Summer Campaign this year:
Sororitas and Space marines are the Imperial side
Tzeentch is the focus of the antagonists with multiple new kits:
- Plastic Lord of Change
- New Tzeentch Daemon unit
- New Tzeentch CSM unit (perhaps new plastic Thousand Sons - Rubric Marines)

Look for this campaign on the far side of WFB 9th which is occurring earlier in the year.

Regarding Sisters of Battle

From a little Ripper Swarm to me:
The Codex is done, the models are in production, and it's nebulously a Q2 release. It's the Dark Eldar treatment-- rebuilt the range from the ground up, completely.

Regarding Sororitas Codex

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.

Update 7/2/2014
In another one of Games Workshop's truly plot twisting actions, some of these models and squads have been added back to the store but are sometimes labelled as NLA or out of stock.

Celestian Squad
Adepta Sororitas Command Squad
Battle sister with flamer 1
Superior with Chainsword and Bolt Pistol (NLA)

Update 7/1/2014: Black Library page states the Sororitas dex has been updated:

June 30th 2014 - Updated for new edition of Warhammer 40,000 Only noticeable update at this time seems to be removal of allies chart for reference to new 7th edition chart in core book *unverified*
 Update 6/30/2014: From DeSteele

Hi Phil,

Thank you for your email. Codex: Adepta Sororitas will be updated by the end of this week.

Many thanks, 
And no, not updated at the time I wrote this email.

Old Rumors Sisters of Battle Rumors (over 6+ months old) 
Warning: this post contains conjecture, please take with a grain (pile) of salt
Recently, as of the summer of 2014, the Games Workshop webstore has eliminated a relatively large number of models from the Sisters of Battle range. These models were first labelled as "No Longer Available" but have since been completely removed from the store altogether.
Update 6/28/2014: As of approximately this time these models/units have been completely removed from the webstore *Amended as of 7/2/2014
-Celestian Squad (As of 7/2/2014 has been added back to the store) -Adepta Sororitas Command Squad (As of 7/2/2014 has been added back to the store)
-Retributor Squad
-Seraphim Squad
-Adepta Sororitas Dominion Squad
-Seraphim 2
-Superior with Power Maul
-Superior with Chainsword and Bolt Pistol (As of 7/2/2014 has been added back to the store but is marked No Longer Available)
-Missionary with Plasma Gun
-(Celestian) Superior with Chainsword and Plasma Pistol
-Battle Sister with Flamer 1 (As of 7/2/2014 has been added back to the store)
-Battle Sister with Meltagun 1
-Seraphim Superior with Power Sword (with helmet)
THIS website has a good complete list of the original models released for the SoB to give an idea of what has been discontinued over the years.

It's worth noting that all of these models have a basic variant which is still available, so it is possible to still create for example a squad of Seraphim, albeit to do so you must now buy single units, one at a time, and with the exception of special weapons, the entire squad will be the same cloned model. This means that the vast majority of Sororitas models have been reduced a single variant/model.

This correlates, as has been rumored, that Games Workshop has vastly minimized their metal casting capabilities and is eliminating scores of models from production.

Hopefully it indicates that plastic Adepta Sororitas models will soon be released since this stands as a staggering reduction in the production of this army. Keep the faith
