Hello all. I'm starting up an Inquisition stormtrooper-themed army and have been unfortunately stymied by GW's seemingly lack of care when writing the rules for the Inquisition in 8th/9th (I have a perfectly fine list, but it is basically just a Scions list with a couple of attached Inquisitors). The White Dwarf update, while allowing individual Inquisitors to be attached to allied Imperial detachments, killed off the ability to have more than one Inquisitor in a Inquisition detachment- making the Inquisition-only detachments less useful on their own. This combined without having any Troop choice severely hurts the Inquisition as a usable sub-faction, as only Vanguard detachments are readily able to be taken (unless someone magically has three Land Raider Prometheus lying around). I was thinking how to make them usable and useful, and came up with some ideas that I thought might work for house-rules for casual games. Can I get some input on my thoughts?
Remove the restriction of one Inquisitor per Inquisition detachment. Replace it with 0-2 Inquisitors and 0-3 Interrogators.
Move Acolytes to Troops choice. Increase their available size to 10. Restrict stormbolter, melta, and plasma weapons to 3 per unit.
Similar to Inquisitor, lesser W (4) A (3) L (8). 4+ save, optional 5+ invuln for +15 points. 40 points.
Special Rule- Agent in Command: Re-roll Wounds of 1 for friendly <ORDOS> units within 6 inches.
Veteran Acolytes (Elite)
Similar to regular acolytes. Unit size 1-6. Add 1W, 1A, and 4+ save to Acolyte profile. 13 points each. No limit to special weapons from the ranged list. Armed with laspistol and chainsword, can replace the laspistol with Pistol/Ranged weapon and the chainsword with Pistol/Melee weapon.
Add in Chimera, Taurox, Taurox Prime, Rhino, and Land Raider to Transports list.
Add Valkyrie and Arvus Lighter to Flyers list.
