    Games Workshop Inquisitor Release Timeline

    This is a list I’ve compiled (with help) of Games Workshop’s releases over the years, split by game system. I stress this is a work in progress; it is far from complete or comprehensive. It’s based on a mix of info from these forums, fellow forumites help and my White Dwarf collection. I never collected the specialist games magazines, so there are currently a lot of gaps for those.

    I'm sure there will be errors: things mis-categorised as plastic/metal kits, models in the wrong month, and some just plain missing. If you can help out with further info to improve this it would be greatly appreciated

    Note on *: I would like one day to give this a site of it's own, and as part of that I was to add images of models for easy identification. At the moment that project is firmly on hold for various reasons, but I'm still collecting images here and there. The asterisks mean I have an image for that thing.

    Some guidelines for inclusion:

    • Magazines, books, terrain, tools, paints and so on aren’t included: this is focused on models alone.

    • Also no kits that are just combinations of other kits (e.g. 13th Company Storm Claws).

    • I include it in brackets when a number of variants of one basic thing are done, e.g. if three goblin bosses are released it’s “Goblin Bosses (3)” rather than one entry for each. This usually only applies to leaders with different armaments and so on.
    Despite these issues I hope it might be an interesting or helpful resource for others. Many thanks to Tarax, Tae, Scryer in the Darkness, mrtn, gunmonkey, Ghudra, someone2040, Daniel36, coyote1066, Coach, MarcoSkoll, AsleepByDay and ADF for all their help.

    When did GW release something? Was it plastic or metal? Who sculpted it? Come find out:Fantasy, 40K, LOTR, BFG, Blood Bowl, Epic, Inquisitor, Man O' War, Mordheim, Necromunda & Warmaster

    That shouldn't matter. Inquisitor was a 2001 release.

    There will also Im sure be many errors elsewhere: this mis-categorised as plastic/metal kits (especially since some of those are guesses)
    I imagine this is a generic "form post" (And I do mean "form", not "forum") that you've put in several other sections, but I'll add this anyway.
    Unless I'm mistaken, nothing was ever released for Inquisitor that wasn't a metal model. There are a few pictures out there of unreleased resin casts, but that's it.

    I can't recall dates, but I think you're missing (I did try checking them against the list, but I may be wrong):
    - Chronogladiator
    - Mynarc the Unforgiven
    - Navigator
    - Bodyguard
    - Sister Repentia
    - Daemon huntress
    - Jeremiah the Pariah (as I always call him, at least).
    - Unbound daemonhost
    - Talon (Hive Ganger)
    - Major Jaxon
    - Toothpick Murke
    - Sgt Black
    - Tau Water Caste
    - Genestealer
    - I also think there were at least 3 Citizens/Workers
    - Techpriest Tezla
    - Inquisitor Scarn

    I think that mostly completes the list, so there's at least a guide for what needs dating.

    Yeah, all that is copy-pasted between the different timelines.

    - Mynarc the Unforgiven

    - Techpriest Tezla

    Thanks loads, it's good to at least know what I'm missing.

    EDIT:
    - Navigator
    - Bodyguard
    - Sister Repentia
    - Daemon huntress
    - Tau Water Caste
    - Genestealer
    - Techpriest Tezla
    - Inquisitor Scarn
    - Unbound daemonhost
    These ones are accounted for now (they were tucked away in various parts of White Dwarf where I missed them first time around )

    Re: Games Workshop Inquisitor Release Timeline

    Didn't the Thorian and Callidus both actually get released at the same time? I know the Thorian (and maybe the Callidus too) had been announced for release much earlier, but I seem to remember it was delayed.
    I like to remember things my own way... Not necessarily the way they happened.

    Ahh, maybe so, I definitely remember being a bit puzzled by seeing the Thorian appear twice in the "New Releases" section. I'll check...

    Odd. White Dwarf 304 (April 2005) lists the Thorian Inquisitor in the new releases section, definitely. But then White Dwarf 315 (March 2006) also lists it, alongside the Callidus Assassin :confused:

    I believe the release was delayed from its originally intended time because of production issues (possibly to do with mould quality) or something similar. The later date would be the correct one.

    I'd also note that you have (now, at least) got "Jeremiah the Pariah", but under the name of "Familiar". I've never quite understood why the model has been called that, as being a Pariah, he has absolutely nothing to do with the Familiar rules - and indeed is practically the antithesis.

    Not that you necessarily care about such naming, but it's best to tell you so you're not endlessly scouring things trying to "work out when that damn model was released".

    Brother Artemis is in there. Unless there's another one I don't know about?

    There isn't.

    GW really didn't show much interest in Space Marines in Inquisitor - odd, perhaps, but I get the idea they didn't really want to include such powerful characters and only did so on the basis that there would be a backlash if they didn't.

    Re: Games Workshop Inquisitor Release Timeline

    A good idea on their part IMO (not to show much interest). Space marines really don't feel like they "belong" except in certain rare circumstances.

    But anyway, thanks for clarifying that.
