I am thinking of adding an inquisitor to my army. However i want to change up the fluff and battle field role of the inquisitor from the usual fire base or CC monster. I want him to be more of moral support choice.
So the thought popped into my head of calling him a commissar general or some such title. it would be fluffy and would offer some interesting modeling options. i cant decide which ordo he would be based on. so if you guys could help me out with any ideas i would be very thankful.

I don't see any problems with using an Inquisitor's stats and rules, but calling him something slightly different. Perhaps Inquisitor General would be a better title, as Commissar General could mislead people into thinking something totally different. Commissars do have quite a different role in the IG than an Inquisitor, although both are feared just as much when they come around.
Also, sometimes it just takes a little while for a post to get answered. Don't worry about it. I've had to wait three or four days for an answer on something before, but that doesn't happen too often.
Stick with LO and we'll take care of you for sure.
I like the idea, be creative!
As long as you have a clearly written out army list and take a minute to explain things to your opponent, you should never have a problem.

Your first post was at 02:35 my time. Your next was at 04:59. I'll round that of as two hours and 25 minutes. I think you should wait a bit longer before expecting a reply, it sometimes takes a day or two. Heck, my armoured company list was up for three days before I got a reply. Though I think that's because there aren't that many AC players looking through the IG lists.Originally Posted by Capt. Haddock
As for your idea, it's original, but I fail to see how giving him a new title would change him from the usual firebase or CC monster as you put it. I'd imagine regular guard officers to do a much better job as morale support, since they have access to a vox network, the 12" rule, commisars for another +1ld etc. etc.
As Kaiser said, IG officers are better for moral boosters.
Just take a Heroic Senior Officer and a Commissar as your HQ, that way you get all the benefits of the IG Officer and the +1LD of the COmmisar.
As for the fluff, you could probably get a way with saying that the commisar is actually the commander of the army (It wont really make much difference), or you could just convert your Officer to look like a Commisar.
Thank you all very much. I will take all your considerations into account. A thousand apologies for my double posting, it will not happen again.
