My local clubs got a 1000pt 40k tournament coming up and im enterind using my wich hunters but i cant decide what inquistiter to take either a witch hunter or a allied deamon hunter. Ive put my ideas for both below help would be much appreciated:
Witch Hunter: Inquisitor with divine pronouncement, inferno pistol and power weapon.
Henchmen: Acolyte- mancatcher, penitent,gun servitor - multi-melta, crusader.
Deamon hunter: Inquisitor with retractor field, power weapon, storm bolter,psycannon bolts.
Henchmen: mystic, sage, acolyte-plasmapistol, vetran with flamer andservitor with multi-melta.
What would work better? Bearing in mind i wont no what im facing
This depends on you and never base your army around your lord base your lord around your army. Also is it mission based? Entering as Witchunters I would stick with the theme and as an option take GKnights as allies. Those are your options.
you may wan't to re-work your Idea for a witch hunter inquisiter entirely. You seem to have a close combat inquisiter, with a close combat Acolyte and Crusader. Ok so it LOOKS like an assaulty unit, but then you take Divine pronouncement.
If your making an assaulty unit, then you don't wan't those same squads you would have assaulted to be fleeing from you. That just leeves you out in the open as they get more distance between you and them than you would have normally, and then they could use that distance for shooting. Remember that it can't be used on units in assault, or fearless units, so if you planned to use it against Khorn berserkers or Grey knights you wanted to scare out of base to base contact then it wont work.
You have a penitent, so maybe your going for an anti psyker unit. Not a bad Idea, because with the adversaries rules they can get psykic power for free when they face you. An anti-psyker unit in a witch hunters army is almost always usefull because of this, but then I would pick a different psykic power.
The gun servitor should go. If you are running at them with a crusader, acolyte with a man catcher, and an inquisiter lord with a close combat weapon (the power weapon), and pistol (inferno pistol) and you don't have a vehicle you are mounting them in, then you will be foot slogging the whole way. You won't have time, or motivation to hold still and fire your multi melta. Its not like he counts as stationary when he moves, he only needed to replace his arm with the gun because he doesn't wear strength enhancing power armor like sisters and space marines.
your deamon hunter inquisiter that you have posted there should be re-worked too, and im talking about the one you listed in the deamon hunters forum. I wouldn't pick either of the units you have presented without changing almost every aspect of them.
So what would you rekomend i take then Shiver?
I would like a combat witch hunter or a shooty deamonhunter advice for bothe would be greatly appreciated. But no more than 175pts plz.
you can mix hench men(GW guys said so), and for the inquisitor take a ordo malluess with force weapon and termie armor maybe a psycannon,
dude if you have the bulk to take armor saves(chirogens and more than 1 acolte)you can more easily use a servo with multi meta then again its not like an iquisitors retinue is going to always live
first I would reverse what you asked for Deamon hunters are better for assault. Its more there style, and their wargear is in favor of it. Witch hunters are all about anti psyking, so they have a lot of modifiers to your aponents leadership (kindof like the Slaanesh of the Imperium). I would make the Witch hunters shooty, because with all of the modifiers your aponent has on his leadership value you could force his infantry to fall back pretty easily (unless they are fearless, which almost EVERY STUPID ARMY IS. heck even sisters became PRACTICALLY fearless with this codex release. Im talking about the banner and the act of faith that makes them fearless.) You can still make a very good assault witch hunter inquisiter, but if you wan't to compare them to deamon hunters then you should pick deamon hunter inquisiters.Originally posted by mutant child@Apr 10 2004, 04:48

Deeth pointed out that Deamon hunter in terminator armor. Thats a really good Idea, becaues the psycannon can always fire with hits heavy stat line even if the inquisiter moves.
Here is what I would do with my Witch hunters Inquisiter if I only had 175 pts:
Inquisiter with: Divine Pronouncement, Storm bolter, Psycannon bolts, purity seals
Gun Servitor with Plasma Cannon
Gun Servitor with a melta-gun
depending on a fiew factors, I might drop the melta-gun servitor for something like a heavy bolter if I expect a lot of infantry armies that will be deploying a great distance from my army.
