I've been deployed and out of the Warhammer loop for a bit, but just got a chance to catch up on things at the ol' Games Workshop and saw the new Grey Knights.
My initial excitement of seeing pretty new plastic Grey Knights models to go into my Inquisition army was killed by the discovery that there's no more Inquisition army.
Personally, I really liked the variety of models that came from being able to combine Inquisitors, Grey Knights, Sisters of Battle, and Imperial Guard all in one force. Just imagining a tabletop filled with all-silver GKs, though, kills my enthusiasm.
Was there a reason they decided to go with just Grey Knight's rather than Daemonhunters or Inquisition?
Being able to combine the armies all into one force was seriously unbalanced imo. You can still have =I= and henchmen, but no inducted Guard or Astartes - what works in one codex screws the balance if you allow another codex with different strengths and weakness to use the same point costs.
I suppose the nearest you can get is a Grey knight codex lead by Corteaz using henchmen as troops armed in a similar way to guardsmen and using chimeras for transport. Then add grey knights, dreads and assassins to taste.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
I mostly just liked the crafting part and assembling an army with a good theme yet variety of design. Initially I was drawn to the Tau for all the variety of troops and aliens they have, but the unique space gothic feel of the Inquisition ultimately won me over.
Guess it's time to go take another look at the fish men.
