I'd like to purpose a topic for consideration in regards to the B+C's no Xenos policy when dealing with the Inquisition. I'd think we should consider the merits of relaxing this rule in two circumstances only.
First I'd like to clarify:
1. I am not talking about Xenos allies or primaries or anything like that.
2. This is in regards to Inquisitor Warbands (for Inquisitor and Inquisitor 28mm).
3. This is also in regards to 40k (regular) Inquisition henchmen.
4. At the moment Jokaero are the sole exception to the no Xenos rule.
Inquisition Warbands are known to occasionally include Xenos members, and I think the exception should be reconsidered beyond "just Jokaero because you can take them in Codex GK & I".
I think generally this rule does a disservice to people who are trying to create a fluffy radical'bent Inquisition warband/army, and not a Xenos warband/army.
A rule of allowance would be more fitting to the nature of the Inquisition. Talking about a single Xenos henchman in a human dominated Inquisition warband for example shouldn't be censored. That henchman is part of the theme of that Warband, disallowing discussion or pictures of it damages said theme.
Edit: Having a Xenos in a warband says more about the Inquisitor and the Warband than it will ever say about the Xenos and his race.
If a warband was 30% or more Xenos, then there'd be an issue where discussion is likely to get bent into Xenos no-go territory.
Same could be said for 40k Inquisition Henchmen, except I think the percentage of allowance would have to be lower, and more reliant of "variety" so as not to just be a "minisquad of Kroot / Tau / Eldar".
Now I'm not saying this needs to happen, I'm just asking that the topic be put into consideration.
