I'm still wondering if it actually works alongside super doctrines. It specifies normal doctrines, but super doctrines..? Never hurts to be sure.

Pretty decent rules. Nothing auto include or game breakingly good. Fair, fine and fluffy rules. Solid.

Already preordered mine.

I think I will be running the following in most AdMech lists now mainly for psychic defense but also the additional CP will probably come in useful:

Inquisitor (55)
Ordo Xenos
Psyker – Smite & Castigation (WC 6, Target unit 18”, roll 3D6 > Lowest Ld, suffer D3 mortal wounds) (Cast & Deny 1/turn)
Plasma Pistol & Force Sword (5+8) (admittidly I do not have a model with a storm bolter otherwise...)
Inquisitorial Mandate (1CP) – WL Trait & Relic
WL Trait: Esoteric Lore (5+ to gain CP when opponent spends them)
Relic: Bio-Corrosive Poisons (wound on 2+ in melee vs non Vehicle/titanic)
Total: 68 points

Does the Formidable warlord trait give a LD 11 bubble for 12 inches or so? That seems pretty useful for Admech or Guard.

This is also a universal way for Imperium armies to get another way to turn off overwatch.

All three of the Ordo specific warlord traits look very strong.

Do the named Inquisitors have designated warlord traits associated with them?

A force sword wounding on 2+ sounds like it would be pretty good. I think I'm going take a close look at the new sisters models to find something to convert into an Ordo Xenos Inquisitor.

Could use Sisters of Silence.
Speaking of that, I’ve heard no generic Inquisitor in power armor?

If the truth can destroy it, then it deserves to be destroyed.

Yeah, the lack of power armour is the biggest disappointment. Many of their old models are clearly wearing it.

Only the insane have strength enough to prosper. Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane.

If it hasn't been said, this Index is viable in competitive it gives Imperium one inserted Inquisitor with "no overwatch power." without breaking any new rules/detachment requirements.

Looking forward to getting my hands on this. have always loved Inquisitors in 40K and love the concept of modeling them. Already have Greyfax, a Xenos one and will probably make a few more.

Lack of pa is odd. Isn't Greyfax in it? But no generic can have it almost all of the old range has pa minus the dread pilgrims. Heck even the Victorian style ladies have. Both of my converted minis are pa.

So how does everybody plan to build their Inquisitors and acolytes?
Also, what kits do you plan to use?
I’ve got spare stormbolters from munitorum crates and extra bits from my Scion kits, so that’s a start.

Shame they didn’t include the FW inquisitors in here; it would have been a nice value add so I don’t have to spend £15 on an entire index if I ever want to play those two characters.

GW seem totally schizophrenic on conversions to be honest; they don’t support them at all in the rules, even obvious and simple kit bashes/weapon swaps and then you have things like this White Dwarf which has half a dozen pages of “cool conversion ideas for your inquisition army”??

look here, it appears an inquisitor won't break the super doctrines, its in the right column on the first page, in the section of the last bulletin(they call out combat doctrines)

They rarely show alternative gear, but lots of fun ways to make your models more uniqe or thematic with sanctioned GW bits.

Literally anything human or humanoid in the GW range can be the basis of an acolyte.

GSC, Skitari, Imperial Guard, Empire, Necromunda gangs all make a good basis.

Then you've got 3rd party options like Anvil Industry with their dizzying array of Reigments parts.

These are recent favourites of mine:
Spoiler:




Head - oop Puppets War
Shoulders - IG vehicle crew
Arms - Empire State Troops + Mk3 Space Marine chainsword
Torso - Anvil Industry
Legs - Anvil Industry
Accessories - all over. Pack plus pistol are definitely from an Empire kit, the grenades are Reiver ones, the relic is a Primaris bit I think. There's a Scion knife on his other hip.




Head - Skitari Rangers
Body - Genestealer Cult Neophytes
Arms - I think they're Maxmini, just had them lying around
Hands - Escher and Orlock, Krieg lasgun
Accessories - Grey Knights relic, Scions little box and grenades, oop Chaos marine Knife, Kroot bits

That's nonsense. The sort of Inquisitors who end up on the battlefield have a good reason to wear one, and they obviously can easily get such an armour if they want. It absolutely should be an option.

I would add that getting a power armour is probably easier than getting.. let's say...

- A Jokaero
- A Daemonhost
- A daemon weapon
- An exterminatus weapon

And yet, all of them are regular, nearly unrestricted options

Whilst I agree that power armour option would be nice, most of the models I own aren't wearing it and a quick google doesn't show any (non-named) that have it.

Lots are wearing plate armour of some sort but with no powerpack on their back, various are wearing layered armour but with bare arms or strapped on plates - non of those is power armour.

Which would be a real issue if that was the criteria being used(it isn't, as evidenced by the availability of Terminator armour despite there being no GW Inquisitor in Terminator armour), or if there was a lack of power armoured models for people to base an Inquisitor conversion on(there really, really isn't).
