Welcome to Librarium Online!
Apparently there is a third codex in the Witch/Demon hunter series. Local GW store staff are talking about it but don't know any details. Anyone know anymore about Codex Alien Hunters?
Nothing is so exhilarating in life as to be shot at with no result. - Winston Churchill
The inquisition has 3 parts, the Ordo Malleus, Ordo Xenos, and Ordo Hereticus
Ordo Hereticus - Daemon Hunters (Grey Knights)
Ordo Malleus - Witch Hunters (Sisters of Battle)
Ordo Xenos - Xeno/Alien Hunters (Deathwatch)
The word on the street is, that since they've already released the first 2 Ordos of the Inquisition, that they'll release the 3rd sometime within the next year or two. It will be an army of Deathwatch Space Marines, as it is written all over the place in fluff. The specifics are of course unknown. I'd like to see how they create an entire army of Deathwatch without making them too much like basic Space Marines.

For the record there are more than 3 Ordos however the others are arguably too minor to get their own codex.
Furthermore the Ordo which regulates the Assassin temples (the name escapes me) appears to have been intergrated into the 3 main Ordos.
Ordo Malleus must've come along one day and said "all your ordo are belong to us"
The assassin temples are the Officio Assinorum [not sure about the spelling].
They will have Inquisitors and non deathwatch units I expect. The deathwatch are much less gothic than the grey knights or SoB and will use more standard sci-fi equipment. Expect improved bolters and tracking systems and maybe infiltrating. They may get bikes but I don't see them getting dreadnoughts. Death watch are vetreans recruited from other chapters.
I wonder if you will be able to get radical alien hunters with Xeno tech.
yeh I dont think the Ordo Hydra is gonna get a codex - itd be a bit too bizarre to translate into tabletop rules.
Im expecting to see Xeno tech being allowed to Ordo Xenos inquisitors and possibly...POSSIBLY a xenos henchman.
other than that I agree that deathwatch will be slightly better than normal space marines with slightly better weapons

I would not be surprised to see Ordo Xenos codex, it would make sense to anyone familiar with the fluff or Inquisitor. However, GW have said that their next couple of codecies are Tyranids and Eldar, plus they have said they will revisit a number of the 3rd ed codecies to bring them up to speed (notably the marine chapter specific ones eg BA, DA, SW) so dont hold your breath
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Well apparently it is meant to be due this summer as for radical Xenos Hunters would they not want to hug all aliens and incorprate them into the imperium sounds pretty radical to me.

I would think that its more likly they would have some unkown race/Sub-human henchman as apposed to an eldar or somethink.Originally posted by 311@Jan 17 2005, 12:21

But then again Navigators used to be eldar/human half breeds.
