Inquisition post CA 2018


Recommended Posts

 

Just sent an email to 40kfaq asking for Scions stormtroopers rules.

I mean why not?

 

They exist.

Just use the AM dex?

 

I know that I'm just being picky on this particular point but part of the reason I don't really want to use the AM scions for Inquisition Stormtroopers is because of the Chimera. Heck, part of the reason I don't run pure scions in the AM codex is the chimera. I like the chimera and want to use it. Sadly, it can't be MT without breaking their rules (or forcing a regiment bonus that only the chimeras would gain.) The inquisition has often been depicted as having access to chimeras in abundance (because who wouldn't in the Imperium?) Despite that, I need a different detachment, complete with other non-inquisition units, if I want to bring chimeras for my Inquisition Stormtroopers.

I mean Inquisition Stormtroopers. My Bad.

And I don't like soup :P

Give em authority of Inquisition and loyal servants rule and we're good to go.

 

Would have some much fun with transports combos.

 

I really really want stormtroopers on a blackstar...

 

Today i left a tip on 40k FB to give us a free pdf or WD rules for Inquisitorial scions.

Actually, it would be better giving to the other inquisition-related army the appropriate keywords.

GK - Ordo malleus

Deathwatch - Ordo xeno

Sister of battle - Ordo hereticus.

 

This would improve all the involved armies, it would allow the inquisition being fielded and would add some flavour.

All of this only at the cost of a short row in the FAQ.

Mini dex would be great. WD would be great. Free rules online would be great. 

 

This was posted from the teaser about the upcoming Vostroyan made to order:

 

Quote from GW community:

 

"These models will be perfect for creating a force of elite Astra Militarum to add to an existing Imperial army, or as the start of a new collection. You could use them as veterans alongside plastic Cadians as your line troops, or maybe create a small Detachment to accompany Inquisitor Greyfax or Eisenhorn into battle. However you choose to use them, you’ll only be able to order them for one week, so don’t miss your chance!"

 

 

So even GW acknowledges that Greyfax and Eisenhorn go into battle... I hope that's a good thing, and we'll see rules in some form being released sooner than later..

Sure they acknowledge it but I wouldn't hold out hope of it happening anytime soon. They don't seem to want to go into inquisition, feeling that they're only fit for kill team (or at least that's what's been reported).

Yeah I get that. It's more to point out that even GW acknowledges that inquisition has a place in 40K, regardless of what they announced.

I mean I’d this elsewhere instead of simply getting Ordos Militant. I’d rather they get for the big Ordos;

(Ordos Militant Or Radical Choose 1), (Choose 1)

And then for specialists would get

(Choose 1), (Choose 1). And maybe if Inquistor is Warlord change the Detachement/Keyword rules that every unit in the army or atleast in detachment must share a faction keyword with the inquisitor beside Imperium instead of having one universal keyword.

 

This would be cool cause it would enable ‘real’ radical lists. Atleast that my two cents.

I'm feeling the pain of the brothers in this thread.

 

Didn't realize GW had come out and definitively said "no codex for you!" 

 

I haven't touched 40K in a year, and I am beginning to think that part of the reason is that all of "my" stuff just doesn't work well or like it used to and is getting no attention. Not trying to turn this into a whine fest, but I just don't have the wherewithal to totally rework my armies after all the time invested thus far.

 

Any ideas whether they'll at least get Kill Team rules? They are not one of the 16 factions in the main box and I can't find anything about Inquisition elsewhere ...

I'd love to get a source on the "no codex" rumor too--my recollection was that the first Kill Team expansion was going to be Inquisition until the Rogue Trader one got leaked, so they moved that forward, with an Inquisition expansion slated for early this year.  I am just recalling what I read somewhere though, so take that with a grain of salt. 

 

Put another way, the lack of Inquisition rules for Kill Team is conspicuous.  They just released a plastic Inquisitor so there is no reason to think they are backing away from the faction as a whole, and my guess is that because of how much of an obvious demand there would be for the faction, that their release is being held back which is unfortunate in the present but probably bodes well for special attention down the road.  In the meantime, I'm having fun just using blank stat cards and house-ruling Inquisition characters for skirmishing at home.

Sorry to disappoint but it’s not a rumour about them not getting a codex, they’ve outright said it. All the info you need is in the following thread:

 

http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/351505-no-inquisition-codex-rumor/

 

But the TL:DR version is that at the rules writers held a seminar at the Vigilus open day where they said they wouldn’t get a full codex as they don’t have the unique models/units to make their own army without having to take stuff from other codexes.

I guess I was out of the loop for that rumor. I still expect them to be represented in places like Kill Team in the future, though in a release similar to Rogue Trader. Such a release might include updated data slates for 40k as well, just like the Starstriders got, even if they aren't a full codex.

Its still fun to play in non-competitive game.

 

I'm playing these guys (plasma acolytes) with Grayfox nowadays.

Actually i still do not fully understand if i'm allowed to include the transport of other faction into the same inquisitorial detachment, so now i take it as -1cp detach.

You're currently doing it right (as an auxiliary detachment.) Deathwatch and Inquisition don't, iirc, share any keywords besides Imperium, which you're not allowed to use in Matched Play. Thus, they cannot be in the same detachment. Sad day, because that'd be cool as heck.

 

Very awesome looking acolytes, btw.

 

The upcoming article on assassins has me thinking about what simple changes that GW could do to get me inquisition happy and this was what I came up with.

 

  • Acolytes as troop choices
  • Dedicated transport options (land raiders, chimeras, and rhinos)
  • Assassins as elite choices that don't break Ordo (not that we get anything for it currently

 

That's it. I wouldn't be 100% happy but I'd start using them. And it'd take, what, a page? Just reference the codicies that have those datasheets and write a rule or two that alters keywords for those datasheets.
