This I can get into. Given that the Inquisition can bring in most Imperial forces at a whim (technically: when necessary) it's really the only sane way to bring them to the table.

Wild guesswork, every branch gets IG with the Hereticus also fielding Sisters, Malleus getting Grey Knights, and Xenos getting Space Marines. Ally matrix... well, the Space Wolves will probably be in the 'Desperate Allies' column

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

Wow, wasn't expecting this to happen so quickly.........

I believe it's going to be more flexible then that

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

I've got a little theory brewing for those interested: http://www.talkwargaming.com/2013/10...eculation.html


And now, homework.

Gonna be interesting to see how this one pans out.


Naftka combined some different announcements on his site, detailed below:

Quote:
The Inquisition, and What it Means

Today Games Workshop announced that codex Inquisition will be released sometime next month (November). There was very little lead in or expectations that this was coming, with the exception of a hint from Forgeworld's latest Chapter Tactics updates for Space Marines.

So what will the Inquisition be? Will it replace the Inquisition's current location in the Grey Knight codex? Will they be allies, or something new all together?

Lets first take a look at all the pieces of the puzzle, starting off with the official announcement.
Official Announcement of Codex Inquisition


via the Black Library-Games Workshop: Digital Editions
This November, you will be able to download the brand newCodex: Inquisition.


A full codex, packed with background and artwork on the forces of the Imperium’s most secretive and powerful organization. You’ll soon be able to field an Inquisitor and their retinue in any Imperial army in games of Warhammer 40,000.

You'll be able to ally this codex with any Imperial army.
you'll need to wait a little while for exact details on how the new book is going to work though.


Q: Will Codex:Inquisition be replacing Codex:Grey Knights then? Or act as a completely different entity?
Games Workshop: Digital Editions Codex: Grey Knights isn't being replaced, but this book means you don't need to use Grey knights to add inquisitors into any Imperial army.

Red Hunter Space Marine Chapter


via Forgeworld's Chapter Tactics Update
Mnemonic Redaction Protocols: All models with Chapter Tactics (Red Hunters) have the Adamantium Will special rule. In addition, once per game at the beginning of any one player turn, the controlling player may declare that a number of their units with Chapter Tactics (Red Hunters), including Dreadnoughts, equal to the number of the turn being played will have one of the following special rules, chosen by the controlling player, until the beginning of their next turn. For example, if the protocols are activated in Turn 3, then three units may choose a single special rule from the following to apply:
• Counter-attack
• Monster Hunter
• Tank Hunters
• Hatred
• Skyfire
• Interceptor

By this Seal: When using the Allies Matrix, all models in the Red Hunters detachment count units from Codex: Grey Knights and Sisters of Battle as Battle Brothers so long as an Inquisitor is also present in the allied detachment.


Adepta Sororitas Questions


via a reader on Faeit 212
Answers from Forgeworld regarding Adepta Sororitas not having Inquisitors
The Chapter Tactics update is fully up to date with the current codexes and is in fact future proofed. All we can say is that it is correct and the Red Hunters Chapter Tactics will make sense at a later date.


Conclusions:
It becomes quite obvious that the Inquisition will be something all together new, and not an allied force of the Imperium. Instead they will be integrated into the Imperial detachments they are purchased for. This will open up allies to a whole new level, and give us something that we have not yet seen for 6th edition.

How this will be accomplished is still up for debate, but it can be assumed that Inquisitors and their retinues will be able to literally become part of an Imperial force and take up Foc slots within their detachment. This means Inquisitorial units within Imperal Guard, Space Marine, Space Wolves, Blood Angels, Adepta Sororitas, and of course Grey Knights.

There could also be ways to completely run an Inquisition force as an entire detachment, but that is reaching a little beyond what we have heard so far.

This is a going to be a full codex. So what is going to be in it? Lets get the obvious out of the way..
New Warlord Traits
Lots of background
New Rules Leading or being apart of the Imperial forces
Characters and Retinue options
Expansions of the 3 current Ordos, and possibly the additions of more

I expect nothing else for this release, as far as new models goes. There may be new ways to field existing models making them new units, but brand new models would be another surprise and probably beyond what we will see.

So what will actually fill out this codex? Its quite possible there will be assassins in it, although we know nothing about this yet. If they are not included, I would be very excited as it would open the possibilities of another codex aimed at other organizations inside the Imperium, like The Officio Assassinorum, or even an expansion of the Adeptus Ministorum, also known as the Ecclesiarchy.

So what do you think? Nice surprise ending this year.... I cannot wait, and with the Imperial Guard only so many months out.........

If his take on this is correct then it seems like this is more of a "additional options" book instead of a allies book when combined with imperial forces. The Red Hunters Chapter kind a points that even more that way as they counts as units from GK/SOB if there is a inquisitor around.



Wild personal speculation and wish listing:
This could be the way they have tested true combined books and tried to make them viable and happening. This should fuel the fires of the 4 Chaos Gods getting own books in the future, and also hopefully Word Bearers getting their needed combined codex to do them justice.
I want this to be true so that I actually might consider playing 6th, despite random charges and other crap. GW kind a owe all CSM players a more fun option than we now have, even more so when looking at the SM codex which without problem could get lots of fun and fluffy options which also are backed up by rules

3 Warlord Traits Tables confirmed. From GW Digital Editions Facebook Page:
Quote:
As a reward, we're going to let you see the names of the Warlord Traits from one of the three tables in Codex: Inquisition.

And you get to pick which one!
Which would you like to see guys?

Xenos, Hereticus or Malleus?

Interesting stuff!

Just skimmed the comments and it looks like people have overwhelmingly voted Xenos.

Speaking of Xenos:
Quote:
The codex is primarily designed to be included as allies, but you will be able to take a primary detachment if you like.
there aren't any Space Marines in the book, so no Deathwatch (but we've certainly got our eye on them for their own digital something in the future).
