I played Inquisitor themed games of 7TV all weekend and I am really hoping that the rumoured set materialises.

Any more info or piccies, sir?

It sounds interesting.

Absolutely :)

Loads of slightly wobbly snaps were taken that should give a good idea of the fun had (and it was good fun, lots of laughs).  Its going to take me a few days to get the photos presentable and write blog posts for them though.  I will post on here about it in a couple of days with a bit of luck. 

So my interest in the rumoured Inquisitor themed skirmish game is running high.  Its right up my street at the moment so I very much hope that it materialises.

Oh hang on, I almost forgot: has there been any news on the rumoured Inquisitor themed box set release (codenamed "Innocence"?).  I played Inquisitor themed games of 7TV all weekend and I am really hoping that the rumoured set materialises.

I asked at GW recently, the local manager gave me that I have no knowledge spiel, which, TBH, was probably correct......

Supposedly the game was deeply flawed (built around PvP, but the factions were grossly imbalanced) so that's part of the reason. But also apparently they're going to replace it with an army-based MMO using the Total War engine, so as to have something closer to the tabletop experience (i.e. you command armies, rather than playing PvP).

Plus the 40k MMO is coming out soon and that one is solo/team play again, so I guess they wanted to differentiate their offerings.

Excalibur miniatures sell a few slender armoured, tooled up nuns like this:


Eureka make some unarmoured nuns-with-guns.



How did I not know about those? I will shamefully admit to being interested in the Sororitas codex. I already have all the models... a small fortune for sure.

If thats the quality choice of other space nuns, no wonder GW is raking the cash!

Now that makes me feel old. Jumped in on the forums when it was announced as an RPG, joined a guild in anticipation, followed it through development hell for a few years; then it got turned into a PVP, goodies-vs-baddies, WOW clone and the bottom fell out. Never actually played it after all.  ;D
Armies sound interesting, if it's much like Dark Omens. What's Total War like?

Will it be like the other recent 'Specialist Games' releases that were only limited run boxed sets though  ???

cheers

I have been following your RT thread avidly since its inception, so I will certainly not miss it.

I have to admit that this Inquisitor thing has piqued my interest too.

But, as Jim, says, whatever it is will almost certainly be an unsupported one-off like Space Hulk and Dread Fleet.

To be honest, if there was enough to make it worth buying in the box, I don't see that as a problem.
Plenty of scope for everyone to make their own ideas work and expand it in whichever direction you wanted to.

Let us see what they produce.
If they do it...

Well, if it is due out in November, as I heard, the story should unfold soon.....

Total war is great. The battles can be quite on the epic size so think big battles. It's kind of like civilisation but you control the battles. Units gather experience, have moral and so on so it really would suit whfb quite well.

Latest word is that its a false rumour and not happening. Still half hoping its gonna turn up, but unlikely.
