Anyone have any suggestions for a cheap inquisitor (not the lord). I really want to unlock the Eversor Assassin, but also have a bit of firepower to go along with it.
Inquisitor with Psycannon
3x Warrior Henchmen with Plasmaguns
Mounted in Rhino with Extra Armor
That comes out to a total of 185 pts. I was wondering if anyone had anything about the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of this sort of squad.
The cheapest inquisitor that is still quite effective is a straight up inquisitor with a psycannon. He is an independent character, so no one can shoot him back, and the pyscannon can lay down some good support fire.
Ive got mine as a Inquisitor with Terminator Armour, Lighning Claws, 70 pts, he jouns 5 Termys with Brother captain, this makes him quite fighty.

The other thing is for 15points more than what your spending you could get:
2x H/bolter Servitors
1x Plasma Servitor
This is a combination that will destroy the enemy and add heavy firepower to an army that generally lacks it.
Much must be risked in war.

I must admit, I like an Elites Inquizie with 2x Mystics and CCW/BPistol. Maybe even a telehomer Cheap as Chips, usually left alone to wander behind central terrain, and might even let a unit get free shots off! Awesome He actually won me a huge HTH before too (well, a mystic did)

I'm thinking about a shooty-squad too, maybe...
=][= w/ Psycannon
3 Acolytes w/ 3 Bolter-Glasma Combi-Guns
2 Veteran Guardsmen w/ Plasma Guns
1 Gun Servitor w/ Plasma Cannon
1 Familiar and adding Consecrated Scrolls (Powers: Holocaust & Word of the Emperor?)
against Chaos maybe also
1 additional Familiar (dunno what power to take if it is necessary at all ... Banishment?)
2 Mystics (for Interception)
Does termi armour pay off, pretty expensive!?
This whole squad protected by 1 or 2 squads of ISTs w/ Grenade Launchers ...
But somehow I think this only begs to get smashed with ordinance weapons. :p
The only thing I don't like about combi plas on acolytes is that you pay 23 pts for a one use plasma. Too expensive and easily killed IMO, coming from someone who's willing to use GKs, termis, and bikes all at the same time (in average games)
The =I= is fine with just the psycannon. The familiar and powers aren't needed.
Against chaos, I'm not sure. I've only ever played against a single daemon prince ever, and this was before I got DH too. The only other time I've seen daemons in action was in this Apocalypse preview game I played, and they were actually on my team! (2 puritan DH& 1chaos ) Sadly, they were torn up by railguns before they could do something
Terminator armor is great for lone psycannnon inquisitors. You can move and still shoot 36", and if unfortunately he is shot at, he has a 2+/5+ save.
I think ISTs are better off with plasma than grenades, just my preference though
My new favorite set up is elite inquistor with combi bolter plasma. And attach it to my usually 8 man Inquistoral stromtrooper squard on rhino.
for 30 point I got 2 extra plasma rapid fire shot when he disembark from rhino with the stromtrooper and unload plasma hell on the chaos terminator/marines.
i like doing the inquisitors with psycannons also, as a decent converter, i have always wanted to make a few of these converstions, but i am teh broke for the last year, so i havent had time.
anyone got pics of inquisitors with psycannons?
