I noticed this thread on the Chaos Space Marine side of things, and thought I'd ask it here to get everyone's thoughts and input. In your opinions what are the pros and cons of the Witch Hunters? This could stretch to be all Inquisitorial forces if you'd like and anyone with units or armies including Daemonhunters should be welcome to add to the fray.
Hope the thread brings some chatter this way, as well as help out anyone looking at starting a Witch Hunter army.
Love the models nothing else has the level of detail available on its base troops
Love the Fluff, I like the ambiguious nature of the Inquisition...is it good or bad or somewhere inbetween.
The army is Unique, and people like to play against differnet armies (not SM again)
Expensive...cost per model is way to friggen high
Harder to play, this is a army that would make a new player hate the game =)
Harder to paint....a squad of SoB is much harder to paint to a good level than a squad of SM..at least to me
No Apocolypse models/flyers/formations..except for the one assassin one.

Battle sisters - Power armoured, stubborn(book), much cheaper than marines, and faithful. Mech sisters with flame and melta weapons are suitable for any opponent.
Seraphim - Jump troopers with finesse
Useless units - A significant number of the units will never see the light of day in a competative game.
Unforgiving - Your opponent can really punish your mistakes
I think the biggest Pro of sisters is numbers. A large mech army can have 10+ tanks running you down with a plethora of damage jumping out (metlas/flamers) and an equally pointed foot slogging army will usually have 115+ units in power armor, both are pretty intimidating when it comes right down to it. Seraphim are one of the best fast attack units in the game (some would argue the best), the Cannoness is also one of the best HQs in the game. We have interesting special characters (one of which I've heard Tau players refer to as a plague xD.).
That being said, we also have a steep learning curve, can get screwed HARD if we slip up, have tons of useless units and THEY ARE ALL METAL.
Still, they are fun and I'm glad I chose them and will continue cleansing the world of the witch and daemon with my Sisters and Grey Knights =P
