So I have decided to go ahead and start some inquisition allies, And for now it's mostly limited to just the Inquisitors. I've decided to create my own ordo minoris, the Ordo Arcanum.
For Inquisitors, they'll be combat focused, and using Ordo Malleus and Ordo Hereticus Inquisitors. I have some basic fluff and background in mind.
They are an investigative ordo, keeping tabs on the Ordos Malleus and Hereticus, in order to keep the threat of corruption at bay. They are also responsible for studying and devising counters for the acrane powers of the warp. Only Inquisitors of the highest moral standing, and unwavering faith are chosen for this small and secretive ordo, as the powers they deal with on a daily basis are dark and tempting. Only one of their number has fallen to temptation in the seven millennia since their founding. They are almost all psykers, as a connection to the warp is required to study it's dark secrets. Even in study they put themselves at great risk to protect mankind. In order to preserve their purity and righteousness, they only employ the servants of man, and human henchmen.
Given their relationship with the Ordo Malleus, they have access to the Astartes of the Grey Knights to do their work. Only those who display fortitude and compassion are drawn for the Arcanum's Chamber militant. Other Henchmen include Humans at the peak of physical condition, employed as Crusaders or as Assassins.
The Ordo Arcanum disdains the alteration of the human form, they look upon servitors, and arco-flagellants as pitiable creatures. They believe in the strength of mankind, though they are often disappointed by it's repeated failings, yet they persevere, and when they find chaos, they do not rest until it's threat has been eliminated. They are loathe to use mind scrubbing and even more so to use an exterminatus. In keeping with their high standards, they do not employ daemonhosts in battle, instead only using them in the laboratory to study their enemy, and they only use the irredeemable as hosts for the creatures (Unrepentant Cultists most often).
Such is their aversion to the daemonic, they have been known to exorcise a daemonhost from another inquisitor's retinue, and deal severely with the Inquisitor in question. They have also been known to euthanize arco-flagellants. They spare servitors, though with heavy hearts, as at least the servitor feels no pain in it's current existence.
The Ordo Arcanum also has connections to the Adeptus Sororitas, and often draws from their ranks for their missions, requiring the same of the Grey Knights, fortitude and compassion.
They are also only one of 2 Ordos of the Inquisition that can even travel to the world of Nieflhiem, the other being the Ordo Explorator (whom I will detail later), as the Nieflung do not trust the Inquisition, nor do they adhere to the Imperial cult, instead adhering to the preceding Imperial Truth (or a version of it). As the Ordo Arcanum and Ordo Explorator are not concerned with bending the people to the Imperial Cult, they are permitted to land on Nieflheim, and indeed even work with the Elite troops of that world.
That's a bit of what I had in mind for them. I'll post pictures when I get my other inquisitor finished (One came painted, and done pretty well, so I think I'll leave that one alone, as I planned to do the other one in a similar fashion).
For models I used Grey Knight Terminators with Psycannons. One has a halberd, but it will be a counts as force sword.
