The inquisition is neat.ill post a few cool perks

Chimera 5 models can shoot out of it

All ground vechiles can take psybolt amo (s6 heavy bolters, hurricane bolters s5 ,assault cannons etc)

Jokeareo great model can shoot mm lascannon or h flamer. And then buff all the rest of the models in the squad. Some times I run acolytes with bolters and then you can gain rending or +12" range or even both

Cool weapon for the malleus is the hell blade you roll on the table before the game and get 2 great perks

All in all the inquisition make a good complimentary detachment. I find they don't really make you anymore competitive but real fun fluff wise and a good way to change things up

It's very hard to make a competive army for the codex alone. Psyk- out grenades and daemon bane are different from the GK codex but they make great allies

Xenos is my preferred generic HQ, the special characters are good. Maelus is the only one who can take terminator armour. Maelus has very nice brain mines which stop your opponent attacking in a challenge cause inquisitors don't like fair fights. Only way to get orbital is warlord trait or taking karmotaz

Interesting would you say they were as good as they where in the old gray knights codex? Or better?

Run a landraider crusader with psybolt and then have Crusaders and death cult assassins 1 priest and brother cap stern. The priest will allow you to re roll invul saves or to hit and wound with his war hyms. And then stern will allow you to get santuary spell and gives you a +1 to invul- crusaders with there storm shields will have a +2 invul save blocking all the incoming attacks while the death cult assassins will have the high imitative and ap3 and tons of attacks. Plus having stern you will also get hammer hand and up all the assassins and crusaders to s5

They start cheap but get expensive very quickly. Most of the points are the same I believe. Jokero are still super expensive but good.

The inquisitors all have stubborn and ledership10 so you can put one in a platoon and that will help prevent them from running away

and you can keep them cheep so you dont have to worry about the cost points wise they fit nicely in that format also lots of fun converstions to be made. i do love the imperium god bless the emporor god i cant spell today anyway i wonder what set up would be good for a infantry blob any chance a inquisitor can get a item that gives you relentless so you can shoot and charge? that be so evil

Not that I'm aware of, could get a rule book warlord trait for it though I believe. That would just be too evil
