Ok ive been out of the loop for awhile with school. Have there been any updates on when a new WH codex is estimated for release. Last i heard(and this was awhile ago) was early 2010ish.
Suffer not the heretic. That's right, I'm looking at you Astartes Librarians.
Well that one is gone. First of 2010 is the nids, and no big rumours atm about the WH codex
'Thou shalt not refer to the Adeptus Soritas as "Bolter Bitches" nor shalt thou go anywhere near our sisters during the time of the "Red Rage," lest thou wishes to be the first human to enter orbit without the aid of a shuttle.'
from quick glances in the rumors section of this site, it would seem that at best estimates an inquisition codex would come out maybe early 2011....but thats not based on any real hard evidence from me...just what i saw others saying
...and you do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around, thats what its all about.
Don't hold your breath unfortunately.............
I wish they would do an Inquisition Codex where you could pick from either Sisters or Grey Knights as long as you had an Inquisitor as an HQ choice.

Sisters don't need an Inquisitor. They go on wars of faith all the time, which is Ecclesiarchy. They are, however, still the Ordos Millitant of the Ordos Hereticus aka Inquisition. Basically, if you take an Inquisitor it's Witchhunters, if you don't it's Ecclesiarchy, but one shouldn't be required to take one.
I think more from the Ecclesiarchy would be cool, actually. Like a Cardinal with similar rules in the traitors list.
Just found >this< (Witch Hunters/Daemonhunters.) over in the rumours section. Dare we hope it's the beginnings of a new Codex?
I'm with you ikbuh- I still use the chapter approved rules from the second book of the astronomicon to represent priests when I play friendly games and my opponents approve; that lets you differentiate between confessors, missionaries and priests.
As for a combined codex, it could be good, but I really fear oversimplification if they try to combine two books in one; they may also try and throw in some material about the Ordo Xenos to further complicate things.
I hope that they maintain the unique feel of the inquisitors of the various orders, rather than creating a single one size fits all inquisitor. New codices are sometimes as much of a curse as they are a blessing.
I would like to see more options for radicals as well as more special characters. There are so many stories about BA people in the Inquisition and yet we only have two characters. Personally, I think Quixos is a perfect example of this.
Cramming them all into a single codex would indeed be a large codex, but I doubt it would be bigger then the freaking SM codex, hell we share half the units already.
New things I would like to see:
Cardinals with rules like the Apostate Cardinal in the adversaries
Some sort of sanctioned Psyker for Radical WH
Non-character Living Saint
Fast Attack specific grey knights, like GKs with fleet or something
Henchmen independent of an Inquisitor (squads of crusaders anyone?)
ISTs on Bikes. Nothing says "Get the heretics!" like a biker gang!
Fanatics or similar unit
New characters (*cough*Quixos and Rex*cough*)
Improvements I would like to see:
Deepstriking GKs as troops
Arcos that don't kill themselves
PEs that don't die to a light breeze
More reliable Daemonhosts (Power Weapons?!)
Sisters in Artificer armor that could assault (like mini termies)
Things I don't want to see:
Faith Nerfed/overly simplified
DROP PODS... for the love of the Emperor NO DROP PODS
GKs on bikes (maybe sisters... maybe)
Loss of independence between ordos
These are just some things I think would be great and seem reasonable.
I just want to see basic things... like more than ONE troop choice that is really viable. IST's are good for late grabbing of objectives, but they will simply fall over if a strong breeze comes around. We need something that compliments the SoB.
I'd like to see more use out of the elite section. Celestians are the only thing that anyone runs. Yes they are awesome, give us something else to choose from, because everyone is running, basically, the same list.
I just want variety in the FOS that we have now. Make Repentia worth having around, because they are terrible. Make Penitent Engines more reliable. I don't care anything about ISTs on bikes, or drop pods (which I hope that we don't get).
I am with anyone else who thinks they are going to combine the GK book and our book. I can't say that I am super happy about that. I like the really unique feel of the Ladies. It would also lend it self to a nerf or at least a severe overhaul of the Faith system, and that is what makes our army so nice to play.
Clean up our Codice, give us some more units that actually work in each slot and call it a day. If they want to put GKs in with us, that's cool. Don't water down the Sisters when you do it, and make the Knights more like us, not us more like them.
We aren't an assualty army. There are enough out there already, hopefully we can stay the way we are.
