Default =][= Where did they go?

I was recently at a GW independent stockist in Melbourne, just browsing the shelves ang looking for some Inquisitorial troops to ally to my imperial gaurd.

To my delight, I found myself a box of Stormtroopers, the ones in the Daemonhunters range.

After purchasing them, I thought to myself: "I had better take a gander in the Witch Hunters Codex, to see what other units I could ally, such as Inquisitors, Battle Sisters etc".

After searching the store, I was unable to find it. This prompts me to ask,
Does anyones LGS or GW stock the Witch Hunters Codex, or are they being removed for any particular reason?

Cheers

Well, I do believe they are in the process of making an all new codex and models.

Yup, just need to be registered with the GW website.
Go to the 40k section, select "Armies" from the drop down menu. Select "Daemon Hunters" / "Witch Hunters" and then go to the "Articles" section. You will see the pdf's for free download. Enjoy.

Mind you, the downloads come without the rules for using allies...

it is likely that either the allies rules will be removed entirely, with the allied units being organic to the inquisitorial list, or the inquisitorial list will become an adjunct to other imperial lists like they were in 2e- beginning of 3e. This is, purely speculation on my part, from what I have seen.

check out the entropic reaper or remain a vagrant on the sidewalk of life.

Why are you taking inquisitorial storm troopers? Do they cost less than the guard ones (points wise)? From what I have seen, they aren't that great compared to the ones in the Guard codex, and they won't be until the new Witch Hunters/ Daemon Hunters codex comes out.

Considerably less, which is the entire point of taking them. They're cheap.

To clarify - DH and WH models started dissapearing in February this year. Both codices followed soon after.

The rumour is that Daemonhunters will be replaced by Codex: Grey Knights around February 2011 and Witch hunters will be replaced by Codex: Something late 2011 or early 2012.

The current codices available for download do not contian the allies rules or hobby section.
Legend has it that there will be an Inquisition codex or suppliment some time, no-one knows when or what form it will take.

Looking for a friendly wargaming club on the Isle of Wight? Drop me a line.

Sisters of Battle - The Order of Glory Undimmed - 2'500 Points | High Elves - House Cyredeth - 2'500 Points | Bretonnians - The Muster of Sir Jules Estelle - 3'000 Points

I don't think it's going to be that late in my opinion. Space Wolves codices went off the shelves in September '08, and got replaces Sept/Oct '09... I think it will be earlier than late '11.
