Personally I hate inquisitorial storm troopers in a WH army. For one more point a model you get a 3+ armor save and a bolter. The save alone is worth more then one extra point. IMO sister are far superior to inquisitorial storm troopers.
"Official! The graves of warriors who have given thier lives for the Emperor now outnumber the stars themselves."
Now, they can be used, Their only use is if you want to play a WH w/ Inducted SM for the fun of tons of Heavy Weapons.
Where's your Baritone Saxophone?
I never taken them. The only use I can see in them, would be if you wanted to min/max and take a cheap troop choice. Personally, though, the standard battle sister is so amazingly good, that I wouldn't want to minimize the troop choices.

Sometimes a Chimera or two is helpful, and while immolators are just as good, they can't take a ten model squad.
I guess it also depends on style. Inquisitorial stormtroopers make up nice companions to Inquisitors.
If you're purely oriented on their worth in game terms though it's hard to say if you could not invest the points elsewhere.
"Do you want your heretic rare, medium or well done, Lord Inquisitor?"
May I ask where you are getting these 'nade launchers from? I cannot find them in the WH armoury, nor do I see any upgrades available. :confused:
those would be grenade launchers
and if your short on the cash money IST become a wonderful and actually very versital tool. (use cadians and green stuff)
the grenade launchers an obsurdly useful item and the lower numbers allow for smaller "less threatening" supporting squads that people most always underestimate. 5 IST with a flamer and a grenade launcher cost you 65 pts THATS IT
that comes with targeters too, and if you feel like sitting and shooting (runnign large numbers o things lie exorcists and retributor squads or just immolators with the HB (which should ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS have blessed ammo)) the Grenade launcher is MUCH better than a storm bolter could ever even dream to be. coupled with the proper use of targeters and patients, you can wreck most anyone, even if you only have 5 guys.
i Honestly do Not run any Battle sister squads, and outside of one person who when ever i play them my dice goto hell (i have never failed 7 out of 10 (shots) serephim armour saves in one roll... or rolled 3 out of 3 exorcist missle to hits as 1's), have pretty good record. Battle sisters are cool, but they arnt the be all end all people think they are, nor are the IST, i just like have the Joe not enhanced marine on my side... and it will all boil down to play style.
because of my overtion to Battle sister squads, i dont like Troop heavy, i play with alot of more specialized units. that what I do. most dont. find your own and NEVER believe someone if they tell you "This troop is the greatest" until you see if for real... unless they are talkign about the exorcist tank, you should always take atleast one for fire support ^_^
When all else fails, burn every one... or missile them back the Golden throne
Evil Beware, we have waffles!
wow i never thought i would have any replise umm ok im just starting a witch hunter army and so ive been reading the games work shop tactics stuff and they say that the storm troopers are good for providing covering fire and long ranged support what do you guys think? thanks
wow can you relly just sub cadians for storm troopers (that would put a seriros money load off of me)
