Welp, that settles whether I'll be buying this or not. I don't know why GW hates inquisition so much but it is tragic how they keep chipping away at them.
As GW moves away from the grim and dark I think the whole idea of an “Inquisition” force may be headed out the door never to return to 40K.
Also, in a developer interview a couple years ago I was pretty sure GW said the Inquisition would not be getting a codex.
Times have changed, they’re trying to market their product to a more diverse audience. That’s all good, mind you. Just the name “inquisition” may ruffle some feathers.
Finally, GW has moved away from supporting the kit bash hobby side of the game. The Inquisition was always the plaything of modelers and those that wanted to model individual operatives and henchmen. The current rules have done away with that, locking miniatures into mono poses with specific model-based load outs. There are no specific models for “acolytes”. No models, no support.
I love the lore and models and idea of Inquisition henchmen and their leaders scouring the galaxy as they serve the Imperium. I just fear the support will not be there.
