Hey guys,

some of you have any informations about some new releases concerning any specialist games for 2010?

Well, it doesn't sound like there's going to be any Inquisitor models from GW (although I do think it'd be fantastic if they rereleased some of the old ones, or released some of the ones that never got a release), but if it's a game you're interested in then there are loads of other companies that regularly release fantastic 54mm models that can easily be converted for use in Inquisitor.

Maybe some Blood Bowl.

I wouldn't expect anything else.

thanks guys,
Kaled, I never really tried Inquisitor, I guess I can't really place the game. Is it a RPG or a miniature games? And I don't know anyone playing it I am afraid.
And cool for some BB mini;-) do you know which race?

It's a miniature based game where each player controls just 3-4 models, and all involved work together to create a cool story while at the same time each attempting to achieve their own designated objective(s). It's usually played using larger models than 40k, but don't let that put you off - most 28mm terrain works perfectly well at 54mm, so you don't need to build a whole new set; and it's still a cheap game to get into - especially if you shop around places like eBay for models.

This article may be of use to you if you are interested in the game;

I'm also very fond of this description of the game from veteran player PrecinctOmega;
'Inquisitor is a wargame with the brakes off: a bare-back, white-knuckle ride that takes all the bits you like best about tabletop wargames (the rich context, the dark themes, the shock of conflict) and roleplay games (colourful individuals, the fate of the galaxy hanging by a thread, sudden changes of personal fortune in the time it takes to pull a trigger) and throws them into a single package. It's like a cooperative novel and a competitive action movie rolled up into one thing. It's wargaming for poets. It's falling to your knees in a sea of corpses, an empty stubber in one hand and a bloody chainsword in the other, screaming "If this is heresy, it feels SO GOOD!"'


And I don't know anyone playing it I am afraid.
That's an easy one to fix - your profile says you're in London, so if you head on over to The Conclave and I'm certain you'll find some players in your area. We also run regular events, usually in the midlands as people come from all over the country to attend, and you'd be welcome to join us.

Hope that helps,

That looks like a great game, I will look into it with more interest, it seems a Necromunda with more story and micro management. And I love Necromunda!

Cool - always good to find new people interested in Inquisitor. If you have any more questions, whether about models, characters or rules, don't hesitate to let me know.

The return of the bits packs would be rather appreciated.

Three solutions to that. The first two are as Kaled says, Conclave events at Warhammer World, or looking at the list of players around the country - many players are prepared to haul themselves a reasonable distance for a game.

However, the third option may even be the best. Head into your local GW to do your Inquisitor modelling, and you may very well be surprised about where it goes.

The thing about Inquisitor is that it's not all that old as a specialist game and it got a lot of early publicity - so a lot of veterans will have bought Inquisitor models that sit unused somewhere.
The other thing is that its scale is immediately recognisable from a distance. If you're sitting painting an Inquisitor model, people KNOW it's an Inquisitor model.

You'll probably get noticed, you'll probably find a few players who "have a couple of models in the loft", and you may well be able to talk a couple of them into meeting up to play a game in the store.
The game itself will attract further attention, and you should be able to get it to snowball from there - if you do well enough, you might even draw some entirely new players into the game.

... although, that perhaps is a bit too much work for a beginner to the game.

So regarding the title of this thread, there is nothing coming from GW or FW execpt (maybe) some minis for BB. Too bad, but at the same time I went on internet, and I find some really cool custom gang, in a way closer to the illstrations from Inquisitor than the traditional gang from Necro. And they were really cool.

Yeah, nothing from GW but there's plenty of fan-produced rules out there (some of which are really good, at least as good as GW stuff, possibly better) and a lot of companies producing miniatures that can easily be used in the Specialist Games (although some games are better off in that regard than others).

Upsettingly, the number of Epic titans available from Forgeworld is shrinking. I'd get all excited and see this as evidence of new stuff, if it weren't for the fact that it's Epic.
