    Alien Hunters are the third group of the inquisition, the ordo xenos. They Focus on fighting alien races and sometimes incorporate alien weaponry into theirarsenal i.e. jokaero digital weapons. They also have access to the Deathwatch, a subchapter of Space Marines who are drawn in from various chapters to honor oaths of supplying warriors to the ordo xenos for a temporary period of service in exchange for information of fighting specific aliens and limited access to special bolter ammunition more adept at taking out various alien specis. The tyrannic war veterans of the Ultramarines chapter are a good example of this, sending warriors to fight for the ordo xenos inquisitors in exchange for tactics and hellfire ammo to use against the tyrannids who had devastated their homeworld and the surrounding systems.

    The Alien Hunters, or the Ordo Xenos, is a branch of the Inquisition whose purpose is to take out the alien threats of the Galaxy. Their Chamber Militant is the Space Marines of the Deathwatch.

    If you're at all interested, there are rumors that there will be an "Inquisition" Codex at some point in the future, which will incorporate all three branches. But, GW is swamped with all of the Other codexes to redo, so don't expect it for quite awhile.

    A "Inquisition" Codex sounds a bit to all in one to me, just think about it. You could have death watch,sisters,guard and Inquisition forces all in one army. I just can't see how they could do this.

    Aslo people who already play one of the armys like sisters would be a bit pissed that there whole army codex can no longer be used.

    I can't see that happening. The armory would be HUGE, as would the list (4 to 6 HQs, depending on how they did it). But it would reinforce the idea that all Inquisitorial factions can work together. I think Sisters could use all their choices, still...

    I cant see any problems, the WH and DH armoury is pretty similiar...
    As for the death watch and the guard, they would keep their own codex's as they are inducted. It would only include the WH,DH and hopefully a newly created AH...

    It would rock As a sister and gk player, I would see no problem with it... so long as you could still play pure armies (which you would)..

    Hopefully they also develop the GK's with more psyhic powers. (being that they fluff wise are meant to be more power than the SM libarians)

    I don't forsee too many problems.

    For instance the HQ's would consist of Inquisitor Lord, Heroine, Deathwatch Captain and GK Hero. Depending on what upgrades you give the Inquisitor, that would make him Hereticus, Malleus, or Xenos.

    Then, depending on which HQ or Inquisitor you take, that determines the main troops choice for the army. The other two would probably be Elites (big maybe)

    But all of the other goodness that the current two armies get would have to fit in there somewhere, as well as new units for the Ordo Xenos. I think that choices that can be made would also be dependant on the HQ.

    Any other speculations?

    I cant wait as well.

    Im in the midst of creating an Inquisition force myself.

    I plan to have 3 stand alone forces, WH, DH and AH, with an inducted guard regiment. I also plan to be able to mix and match the different forces too!

    Burn the hereitc, the daemon, and soon to be the xenos as well!
