I’ve been playing about with a Daemonhunter’s/Witch Hunter’s combo army and came up with a weird set-up for a Hereticus =I= Lord.
=I= Lord with bolter+carapace, purgatus, divine prounouncement
3 vet guardsmen with hellguns
I went with the carapace so I wouldn’t have to blow xx pts apiece for puny acolytes in power armour to get the =I= in with the majority save. That way the chirurgeon can cancel wounds better.
Anyway, I was playing against my mate’s ultramarines and while these guys did nothing, they didn’t cost that much, unlocked assassins, were tough to kill, and he had to concentrate fire on them for fear that Purgatus would bust his Master down to Ld7 (nullifying Rites of Battle) and Divine Prounouncement would then break his units. Against armies like guard, where my Eversor and DCAs can break the vox network, this guy would be making units take morale tests at Ld 4 every turn.
Anyone else ever tried an inquisitor whose main function is psychological warfare? People just tend to go naked or shooty in my experience.
By the way I lost the game, but it was fun seeing my opponent freak out about my Lord breaking his army with his mind ;?
Since you want an Inquisitor Lord and not regular =][= (Leadership 10) you need at least three guys to follow him, and your setup might be the cheapest one to achieve what you wanted. Just this Saturday I tried an =][= with Hammer of the Witches, but I was able to use it only twice, as I also had him set up for CC and he did not last long (what a surprise)...
If you want to unlock Assassins only, I would recommend regular =][= (as an independent character cannot be targeted if not the closest unit) and giving him a Psycannon, or joining him with SOB/ST squad…
Ah, I've thought of this type of play before but never got round to testing it on the field. The problem is getting the Eversor to get close enough to the opponent and getting puratus to work successfully, otherwise the plan goes pear chaped. Pyschological warfare is good, but not as good as how Dark Eldar can do it. Also it's a double edged sword, the Eversor can also effect your inquisitor, but against something like a large bodygaurd of psykers such as eldar it'll be quite fun.
The first time I used an Inquisitor was for psychic warfare. I was playing against Eldar and I chose an Inquisitor Lord to shut down his Psychic powers It worked very well, and kept me in the game longer than I expected. I think I made his Retinue too big for his purpose but I learned plenty for next time.
40k: Witch Hunters, starting Dark Eldar
Warmahordes: Cryx; Circle
Eversor? You mean Culexus?
About guard: Only the officers you hit with purgatus would have about Ld4. Its optional for squads to use the leadership rule and vox casters.
There is no such thing as a plea for innocence in my court. A plea for innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty.
