|Not A Review|
In case you have been under a rock and your browser has been stuck on this site for weeks, the Inquisition codex has dropped. However before I get too deep into a wall a text a couple administrative points for the flys on the wall:
1. I hate Games Workshop
2. Chaos sucks, no one loves me

Right so now that this is out of the way, I love this codex! While there are rule ambiguities and FAQ problems right out of the gate, this is a GW product. It amuses that every time a codex is released people seem to be caught off guard at the lack of clear and tight rules. So why am I happy with new digital offering? Well I am glad that you asked Mom, you see it is full of back story and pretty pictures.
This is also the first supplement that is not a full codex in it's own right. While this has left more than a few people disappointed this is not an ally only supplement. I am excited by what this could mean for the future of mini-codexies that was all the buzz when 6th first dropped. I going to assume that everyone has read the paragraph on the Inq ally matrix, in essence what GW has done is create a new force org detachment for the Inquisition that allows them to butt their way into any Imperial force.
So why am I happy that the lackeys of the corpse god have gotten yet more love from GW? Remember those loosely written rules? Take a Imp Guard list as your primary and Daemons as Allies of Convince then you (Imp Guard) invite your BBF the inquisition over for a play date. Toss in a few illegal drugs and an alter to charlie sheen and voila you get a radical inquisition force. An army composed of lost souls lead by a power hungry madman wielding a demonic blade that isn't a genetically engendered super warrior. Add in the hoards of lesser demons that the master uses to maintain control and inspire blind loyalty and you have the makings a a great thematic army.
Will this smash face against the powerhouses of Tau and Eldar? No, but really that is not the point. Hence the "thematic" part of thematic army. I am also aware that this all might go away in a puff of FAQ smoke till it does I will enjoy building and playing my mass hordes of the lost and dammed. Now if you will pardon me I am off to build some more tormented and twisted minions for my growing force.
