Like the title says there is a blurb mentioning it so makes me wonder if it’s just stratagems or more?

My guess is......It has to due with the Sisters since they are used as the military arm of the Ordo Hereticus. Or that the Sisters book is like the old Ordo Hereticus book which also let you take sisters alongside Inquisitors with Retinues, Stormtroopers, etc. This would be ideal.

The other possibility is another half-assed WD codex and no new models, so that GW can say they still support the Inquisition as a faction. Come to think of it, this is probably what is going to happen.

Check out the contents of Index: Imperium 2.

Squirt out rules for the Inquisition units, and GW can dump the Index books to coincide with Legends rules.

This sounds about right. It's a shame, the Ordo Hereticus army in 4th was my favorite army ever.

Its most likely "the other possibility", but probably done with the new sisters in mind.
WD dont announce or advertice any new models anymore, they totaly dropped the "new releases sales pitch".
Good to patch up the Inquisitorial agents and perhaps get them operating under the same keyword.

Best hope for Inquisitorial models is still if BSF get a dedicated inquisitor update box like the old box of awesome/insane inquisitorial hangarounds.

This is most likely close, especially with the SoS in this months issue. But it doesn't mean that there is not going to be any =][= support in the future. Crimson Fists and Ynnari both had WD articles recently and they are in two of the next three 40k books

Alternatively, it could be Kill Team rules?

It was more than a rumour. One of the Kill Team books actually listed them as an upcoming supplement. That being said, so was a Squat Codex for 2nd edition and we all know how that went...

I would be happy with just letting us know what all is allowed as troops, Elites, etc with the inquisitors. Gotta batch of Palatine enforces waiting to be used

Screw that..give us the Imperial Agents codex which should have been out in the mid-90s...we're still waiting. Stop making every single branch of the Imperium into a half-ass army. Produce a well thought out compendium of the "accessory" Imperium forces.

Good memory there - and a hell of a shout out - well done!

And yes, quite sad.

Huh, I guess I missed that. Honestly an Inquisition warband would be a perfect Killteam and make a ton of sense (and would likely sell very well), which is probably why we will never see one. I'm a huge Inquisition fan (thanks Eisenhorn), it's honestly my favorite aspect of the 40k fluff, which is but there have been Inquisition rumors swirling for well over five years now, and until I see something official from GW I'm not holding my breath.

Has there been a decent WD minidex in the last 5 years? I don't think they want to encourage the type of model building a decent Inquisition minidex would require. I'm often surprised by even the simple Guard conversion they show given their apparent institutional resistance to rules that require kit bashing

The only positive I take from this is the trend of WD support coming shortly before full releases.

Yeah, the Eisenhorn series was responsible for hooking me heavily back into the setting, and I am likewise a huge fan of the Inquisition lore and models. That is the reason the Kill Team teaser stuck in my memory. Really disappointed with how they have been handled in 8th, and while the assassins WD update gave me some hope that Inquisition could get some similar treatment, I know better than to step too far onto the road that such hope leads to.

Theyre basically just copy and pasting the current Sisters of silence rules into WD, yet people have never seen them on the battlefield (because they're awful) and think the rules are new :p

They literally copy-pasted Dataslate: Officio Assassinorum.

Do they still sell WD digitally or did that get discontinued?

Anyway the blurb is 'Beware the Inquisition' so I will hazard a guess they mean that we should beware of wasting our time, energy and money on the Inquisition because we're just flushing it away.

They only time Inquisition will get any real love is if they get some new miniatures, and given current GW's stated attitude towards the Inquisition (ie. they don't belong on the battlefield) the changes of that happening are slim to none.

"But what about Eisenhorn???"

Yeah. What about Eisenhorn?

your mind

well, there is to be a new Eisenhorn (is it Eisenhorn?) TV series...
insert new faction rules, a minidex with its own board game, some t-shirts and Bandai figs, plus then there is the cosplay...

Yeah but this is GW, and GW never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

I mean it took 'em three Dawn of War games to release an actual (and terrible) tie-in model. One of their biggest video game successes is for a universe that they destroyed. There should'a been a box of Dark Crusade's HQ characters out the same time the game came out. They should be capitalising on every major 3rd party release and using it as a way of leveraging more customers to their core products.

But they don't.

Except Kill Team, in which the scale and missions encompass pretty much every Inquisition combat I have read about. But again, it's GW, and as you very accurately stated, they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity...

Three, THREE different Battlefleet Gothic video games and GW rereleases... The Lost Patrol...

I can't even...

So yes, I predict that when/if the Eisenhorn show debuts GW will release new Fyre Slayers.
