It is my pleasure to announce that the first Inquisitor Grand Tournament will take place at Warhammer World, Lenton, Nottingham on 8 December 2007.
Tickets will be £10 if bought in advance or £12 at registration.
This thread will be editted to include the latest details as they are finalized.
Is this an offical GW event?
My Inquisitor Rogue Mechanicus Warband is packaged up at the moment, I might have to dig it out!
It is an official GW event in that I've been given permission to call it a Grand Tournament and to use GW IP in the advertising and event materials. I'm in close communication with the Specialist Games and Events teams at GW HQ and hopefully we'll have either Andy Hall, or Jervis Johnson, or Gav Thorpe (or some combination of the three) on the day to do the prize-giving and chat to players.
However, the organization of the event is entirely down to me. All funding is coming out of my pocket and all arrangments are at my discretion. Any profit that the event makes will be turned to giving Dark Magenta (the unofficial Inqusitor fanzine) the capacity to pay its artists and writers a nominal fee for the contributions (and to pay for our webhosting which, at the moment, I pay for).
So how many people have shown interest in the Inquisitor tournament cause it was in White Dwarf this month.
But most of the veterans in my local store and myself believe that such a thing has been left to late. Inquisitor was good but without a running campaigns and stuff most Inquisitor miniatures were left to gather dust.
Also do you plan to use that awful pt system another veteran wondered?
Losing our webhosting capability just as the ad went to print was a pain in the neck, too. And I'm not sure what that email address is all about, because it's not mine... oh, well. I'll be there on the day. I've had enough pre-sales to cover my costs but not enough (yet) to invest in any trophies or special prizes as I had hoped to do.
If you actually follow the link to the tournament details, you'll discover that there is no use of the Ready Reckoner.
Last call for Inquisitors! This Saturday!
So how ya tournament go?

INQUISITOR GRAND TOURNAMENT 2007
Our first ever such event had a smaller turnout than I was hoping for, with only ten players turning up to battle it out for the title. But what we lacked in quantity was more than made up for by quality. The Warhammer World staff outdid themselves, finding some terrific terrain for us. Although it was designed for Necromunda and the doors were, therefore, a little on the short side, I don't think any of the players were in the least bit bothered - proving that having dedicated 54mm terrain is definitely an optional extra for good gaming.
There were renegade smugglers, rogue psykers, radical inquisitors, dangerous aliens... you name it, it crawled out of the deep dark corners of the Imperium. Even the Traitor Legions showed their twisted and hateful faces in a moment of high drama punctuated from a cry of "MUAHAHAHA!!" from Game Master, Tony Wallace. No surprise that Tony took the award for Best GM away at the end of the day.
Modelling and painting standards were high across the board with tremendous imagination shown by all players (I don't think there was a single unconverted model to be seen). Dave "Kaled" Knowles was undisputed master of modelling, though. His Ogryn BONEhead, under the leadership of the accident-prone Inquisitor Drake Kaled, wowed not only the other participants but the Warhammer World staff as well. As well as Best Hobbyist, Dave would also claim the Third Place certificate for the day itself - a major achievement for a self-confessed novice!
There was a wide variation in playing styles, with those who relied on firepower and combat failing to make much of a mark on their testing objectives which strongly favoured players with a more imaginative approach. Free runners would have been delighted by the sight of characters leaping, climbing and swinging across gaps between buildings - Casino Royale has nothing on us! But it was Ross Webb who came out on top as Best Player, and Second Place overall.
Lunch was a hurried affair, split between munching down in the GW staff canteen (now open on Saturdays for Warhammer World players) and mulling over the fiendishly tricky "Inquisition" - a test of general Inquisitor knowledge that had even the biggest fan scratching his head. Neil Bass can be proud of solving an impressive 16 out of 25 of the most devious questions an Interrogator ever had to answer. Neil's victory was also enough to win him the Overall Winner prize and the title of Honorary High Lord. Congratulations, Neil!
The next Inquisitor Grand Tournament will be on Saturday 13 December 2008, with tickets going on sale in July/August 2008.
SPRING CONCLAVE 2008
For those of you who can't wait a whole year for your fix of mass Inquisitor mayhem, the Spring Conclave is coming up! On Saturday 28 March 2008, at Warhammer World, players will gather in an epic test of their skills, with the day supervised by veteran Excruicator (he says he's a dental surgeon but we all know what he means) Ruaridh Dall. Unlike the tournament, there're no charges and no prizes other than the fun of being there!
There's a good chance that this event will begin with a social gathering (over-18s only, please!) on the evening of Friday 28th March and may well continue over to Sunday morning.
Anyway, that's your lot for this issue of Inquis Ex Officio. But remember, if your club plays Inqusitor, let us know, especially if you've got a new campaign planned or want to drum up numbers to introduce some new players. Let me know if you know anyone else who would like to be included on the Unofficial Inquisitor Mailing List!
Sounds like it was so much fun. Wish I lived in the UK.
