from a fluff standpoint, Witch Hunters would definately use Arbites. And from a model standpoint, it would be really cool to have an arbites force IMO.
Here's the question: so what stats and equipment do you think they would have if they were viable, and how many points would do you think they would be?
“You can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be a hundred.” ~ Woody Allen
There already is a player-designed Arbites codex floating around the Internet... GW-wise they are the same as IST... look under ISTs in your WH codex...
But all they have are shotguns...
Personally, I like if they had rules for Proctors, Arbitrators and Judges in the WH codex.
They're so fluffy, they should make an errata or include them in the next edition of the WH codex, or Inquisition codex.
They're right after Witch Hunters on my fluff scale.
I was thinking of getting the Necromunda enforcers box set and bits ordering extra shotguns to make an extra fluffy IST/Arbites squad. Has anyone used these models in a WH army? It's tough to tell looking at the minis online which weapons fit up with which models. (They're the sort where the hands are part of the guns)
Now if someone can whip up an orky shrink ray to zzzap down that awesome judge from the =][= models to 40K scale we can stick him in as a counts-as elite inquisitor choice and hand out some imperial justice.
I think shotguns just arn't good enough to warrent the use of Arbites, when you can consider that for the same price you get storm troopers and for +1 point you get sisters of battle. If its purely from a fluff stand-point definatly hunt down that codex, the executioner rounds for the shotguns actually make for a decent army, and the riot shields specials rules are great fun. Its only a small 3.36mb pdf file so it shouldn't take long to download, Im not sure whether Im allowed to tell you where to get it from, though it is an unofficial codex.

Yeah, they're not of particularly great use from a tactical standpoint. I think what I may do if I'm feeling more ambitious and want a viable unit is load up the 'sergent' enforcer who has a trenchcoat with some imperial bits to make him judgely and field him 'counts-as' an inquisitor. Then I can model up some sort of 'mancatching' implement for the fronts of their shotguns/nade launchers and field them as acolytes. The ones with shields and batons can be crusaders, and you have yourself an assaulty unit viable for most games without sacrificing the fluffy goodness. I play almost entirely in the store/at events, so it's a whole lot easier to say to pickup opponents 'hey, I'm fielding these totally WYSIWYG compliant models under this official rule' than 'hey, wanna try out this unofficial supplement I downloaded!?' =)
Just need some inspiration for a riot police style chimera conversion.
