    I'm probably going to be getting a job at some point in the not-too-distant future, so I was wondering what the fan base/ support is like for this relatively recent addition to the plethora of Specialist Games.

    I know that the stats are largely randomly generated,but do any particular group of models have any advantage over others? How much can I expect to pay for up to date rules (Original rulebook+updates)? Are there any particularly good models that you'd recommend?

    Well, I havent yet played a game but I do have the RuleBook and I have looked at Various Parts. I found out its a nice Open Game where the Rules are basicly what you make them, for weapons ect.

    For New rules you would probably have to buy the mag but you are aloud to come up with your own, as long as you, your Game Master and your Opponent (S) agree with them. I.E : Bullet Time

    Now as you asked for Models that have Advantages over others. Hhmz, Spam Marines! Ofcourse, only use these if you want to be cheesy, or your playing a Points Match ( Normally just two Rival Warbands with no Point Limits but there are some rules for making Them ^_^ )

    Models are your own Choice, Conversions aplenty in Inquisitor. I would get Parts from the Online Store ( They dont Sell Inquisitor in the Stores any more, To my Knowlage ) You can buy the straight Box Models but its not much fun doing that. ( Also from Online store, depending on where you live. )

    Well good luck on the Job and I hope you find what you are looking for

    OK just gone through a lot of this myself,

    The =][= rulebook is £20 in UK, you can get 2002 anual which contains some invaluable updates including corrections to the autofire and flamer hit rules and hit locations rules as well as some battle reports ond background for £12, other than that Exterminatus - the magazine contains most of the updates, however they are published on the GW web site in the inquisitor section so that is easy.

    Models, alot of people seem to play using 40k models, partly because they are far cheaper and partly cos they already have terrain for that scale, personnaly I am looking forwards to painting 54mm and I intend to use a sewer system/space hulk for my initial scenaruios so spraying hammerite paint onto drain pipes will be the order of the day (quick and easy)

    A word of warning, this is a game designed by old timers it is very reminiscent of the old wild west table top games, the idea is not necessarily to win, heck that is easy - get a load of marines and pretty much everything else is dead meat, it is about stayle and narative, you need someone to be a GM and the quality of the game is very dependant on him. It is possible for a bunch of players to rotate GM duties but inevitably different values get involved some are better than others, others give out demon weapons at the drop of a hat, you ideally need a decdicated GM, in my case - me cos my kids are playing, who is prepared to sacrifice his playing for the enjoyment of others
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    Yes, inquisitor is not a "fair" gaming system like warhammer. It is scenario based, and there are tecnically no limitations to what you can do or create. It's a roleplaying system.
    I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

    Not to long ago, I also was conisidering Inquisitor but I don't have the money to create an entire war-band. When I have a little more cash I would like to take it up, I thought that the Inquisitor Covenant model looks great and you could have some very nice conversions if you put your mind to it. Games workshop also released a (what they called) conversion kit, which gave you a selection of suitable bits and the like. I would recomend him, if you don't like the model, I would go with Eisenhorn, or Tyrus as I have seen some stunning conversions of them in White-dwarf.
