Yeah, we've started a couple of games recently- in theory we play one every tuesday (although it keeps getting cancelled ATM: stupid life getting in the way) and we have a second thats meant to be an occasional get together, but we've only done that once... probably be getting on with that game tonight though...

Ive seen Inq played with the proper scale minatures but we just use the 28mm scale, its just easier (and we just halve all in game distances)... then again there are a lot of in-game rules that we just blatantly ignore or house rule: we made full-auto rubbish, semi-auto have progressive penalties (instead of firing 6 shots being -60% the first shot has no penalty, the last shot has -50%), no instant death for player characters (except when someone blew up their own flamer and took about 160 damage in 1 hit) and more or less ignoring the will power penalties for psychers that fail at psychic powers.... basically we brought a few ideas from other RPGs and threw them into Inq; it works rather well.

I play it with both scales, but got bored when every available opponent was a complete RAW loving power gaming asshole (the WRONG type of player for inquisitor) and all the DM's who volunteered were new player hating assholes who always gave there friend the advantage.

its a brilliant game if you can avoid both of the above, but since I could only play in GW's there the only kind of player you ever meet.

I've been playing Inquisitor for some years and have run a few campaigns, including this year's Spring Conclave. I've played at quite a few Conclave events (at Warhammer World and elsewhere) including the Inquisitor Grand Tournament, but I also play at home (including a campaign that just finished this last weekend). I do have an Inq28 warband, but only play at 54mm - I originally was going to build just a few 54mm miniatures, but fell in love with the larger scale and the huge range of modelling options available.

If you have questions, feel free to ask and I'll help where I can.

I play every now and then, but prefer the making of warbands side of things myself. Sadly, like Stella I tried playing at GW for a time and ran into pretty much his situation. Some people just don't get it, that its not about having to win every time or utterly crush your opposition.

I'm a passive observor on inquisitor nights at Gw as the money has really prevented me from getting models and everyone pays full scale not 40k scale. i sit with my paintbrush and generally watch

In our store there is a very nice crowd, all pleasant uni blokes, power gamers generally brought gently down to earth and new gamers appraised and aided.

Indeed i can understand how some people wouldnt get carried away, my first attempt at a charactor was indeed a power gamer, and had to be brought back to earth a bit.

its an excellent game and if i can get a bit more capital and time then certainly i will begin to play it, especially as my local store is fantastic.

All the charactors have nuances and hatreds that the players stick to despite the objective of the mission.

if you can find a good crew its more than worth it. The game is certainly not dead though if darkreever and stella's experiences are anything to go by it may be succumbing to douche baggery

LOL, lots of people admitting to inquisitor in stores is a bit weird- GW manager's have been threatened with the sack if they allow specialist games in store (with a very few exceptions).
When our area manager even suggested that we might have been holding our game (mainly staff/ex-staff) in store the manager nearly had a heart attack and rushed to point out we hold it at his house... even though it wasnt a serious question (I get the feeling he was just interested to know, and wouldnt have minded if he had).

So who's got any interesting characters/warbands they have come up with lately (IE at some point this summer) and are they up here on Heresy for the rest of us to see?

I was more refering to the time when GW wasn't just created for catering to 12yr old boys SPESS MAHREENS fetish.

Could well be one of the stores that is large enough to have been granted an exception... can also depend on how much of an arse the area manager is- the last area manager we had wouldnt even allow mention of specialist games in store except to say they could be bought via the terminal, the thought of them being played in store would have sent him into a fit. Think he got sent to the SW somehwere though... to be honest as long as its not an area I live in I dont care (and not working for GW anymore I can now tell him what I think of him.. yay).
