Rumors of the Inquisition 40k skirmish box game continue, and it looks like this (not orks) will be our October release. This is translated from Spanish by google, and not well.

Already confirmed at Games Day that would be a skirmish game based in the universe of Warhammer 40000 but without details.

Last I had read spoke of the end of September for launch but the last thing I have confirmed and I quote verbatim, except novelty October catastrophe will be a box with a game 40000 Warhammer Skirmish called Inquisition. No I have more details about the game or on the thumbnail will bring, but it seems to be 28mm and not like the Inquisitor scale. Perosonalemente am delighted to be inquisitors is because that I will expand my collection.


So leave for September launch of the new Space Marines and for October the new inquisition.

original in Spanish
a confirmaron en el Games Day que sería un juego de escaramuzas basado en el universo de Warhammer 40000 pero sin más detalles.

Por lo último que había leído (y seguro que se ma ha pasado alguna entrada) se hablaba de finales de septiembre para su lanzamiento pero lo último que me han confirmado y cito palabras textuales, salvo catástrofe la novedad de octubre será una caja con un juego de escaramuzas de Warhammer 40000 llamado Inquisition. No tengo más detalles sobre el juego ni sobre las miniaturas que traerá, pero parece que serán de 28mm y no como las de la escala de Inquisitor. Perosonalemente estoy encantado es que sean inquisidores porque así ampliaré mi colección.

Por tanto dejan para septiembre el lanzamiento de los nuevos Marines Espaciales (no se si quedará alguna miniatura por conocer un mes antes de su lanzamiento) y para Octubre

  1. this looks interesting, but i have backed deadzone with a large pledge. gw got me hooked with necromunda, gorkamorka and their other fantastic specialist games. however they have went too long without supporting that part of the hobby and only now are they getting back into in after they see other companies doing it. hopefully it takes off and they show it the love and it's not just a one off. also warhammer quest would be nice :)

    1. Ha, Fellow DZ backer here :) and me and my group went in quite big, besides I was hoping for Bloodbowl.

    1. Indeed, I don't want Bloodbowl I think they have missed the chance on that one. I have high hopes for this to include teams of Xenos too (please GW you know you want to)

  3. Thanks for the mention Natfka

  4. By the way, the old "large model game" is called Inquisitor, and I am betting that's what the box will be too...

    1. They're/they've discontinued the old large inquisitor game. In fact, they specifically reference the old inquisitor game above saying they it will not be that scale and will be standard 40k (heroic 28mm) scale.

  5. I'll translate, I am spanish, but well, don't know if you'll understand my english! hehe

    It says:

    "It was confirmed in Games Day that it was going to be a skirmish game based in warhammer 40k universe, no other details given.

    By the last things I read (and sure I have missed some entry)it was discussed to be released about the end of september but last thing I got confirmed, and I quote: excluding a disaster the october launch will be a warhammer 40k skirmish boxed game called Inquisition. I don't have any other detail about the game or the minis that will be included, but it seems that they will be 28 mm. and not like Inquisitor scale models. I am personally charmed that they are Inquisitors so I will expand my collection.
    So they are leaving the new Space marine release for september (don't know if it will be still any mini left to be known a month before its release) and for october.

  6. nooo!! another 40k game specialist, GW not remenber warhammer quest? ;(

  7. Well, my interest is piqued. One of my FLGSs does an annual Mordheim league, so this may be an excellent alternative for those not into Fantasy (like myself). Looking forward to October!

  8. YES! I will pay whatever ridiculous price GW asks for this, just please give us awesome inquisitorial henchmen models!

  9. Might be interesting, but indeed, how well supported will it be is a good question. I have invested pretty heavily into Mantic's Deadzone as well. Beta rules and info for the game are flowing out now from designer Jake Thornton now, and it is looking pretty good.

  10. Waitasec... A rumor in Spanish. About a game called Inquisition. No one would expect it.

    1. lol. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. Kudos to you for the Python reference

  11. I think people keep forgetting that gw policy on the black box is a dump and forget. I wish this was likely the start of a proper supported skirmish game but skepticism is on high alert.

    1. True. But I'd say if there's a release where demand could be so high as to force their hand to support it further, then this would be it. It's potential to be a catalyst for increased 40K sales (as beer & pretzel players increasingly link narratives from both game systems - for example an ordo xenos coterie failing to stop a genestealer hybrid cult that then leads to a tyranid invasion) can't really be ignored.

      I am getting ahead of myself though. We'll see whether or not it's likely to result in such, or even if it actually is what's on the way in a couple of months time.

    2. What's wrong with dump and forget? These are stand alone games like space hulk....they need no support. Monopoly has done just fine with no support or add ons. When seen as a stand alone box game these are just fine.

    3. That is how they've sold their last two boxes, and it seems likely that this will be a similar deal. But really, I don't see any point in predicting GW's plans based on details of what they've done before.

      Releases and support are based on predicted returns, not ancient tradition. There's useful information to be gained from GW's broad strategy (since their stand on things like target audience, the Internet and third-party retailers presumably reflect the board themselves), but I very much doubt that GW's hands are tied by some arcane set of policies governing whether Elf armies can receive new special characters during leap years (or whatever; the 'conspiracy theory' predictive method isn't a rarity on rumour sites, and certainly not here).

      I'm not saying I expect ongoing support, but I certainly don't think past precedent is any kind of evidence.

  12. Evwn if this does turn out to be a dump and forget, with 2nd edition dark heresy in the works, it could be the start of a lot of campaigns. Plus, if its 28mm, theres always conversions to be done

    ReplyDelete
  13. The big plus would realy be the 28mm scale BUT to make it successfull it needs to be expandable (and be a good game ofc). If there is no real space to release additional minis or use current ones, people will only buy a few boxes and then never play again.

  14. I loved the original Inquisitor game, but used 28mm scale models for it.

    This is very exciting.

  15. ok in the spirit of gaming i will attempt a more accurate translation, in any case forgive me for my English.
    it was confirmed in the gamesday, that there will be a skirmish game based on the universe of WH40k but not more details where given.
    The last thing i read (sure enough i probably missed some old entry)it suppose to be lunched by the end of September, but the last thing they have confirmed me and i quote: ''unless there is a world catastrophe, the october mystery box will be a Wh40k skirmish game called Inquisition''. I have no further information, than the size of the miniatures will be 28mm not like the one form the old inquisitor. Personally in delighted that they are inquisitor's so i can expand my collection.

  16. Are you serious? two 40k releases back to back? That is rather stupid. This new game should not take up an entire month's worth of a release.

    1. It won't. September is SPESS MUHREENS, October apparently a Fantasy relase with a side order of -=]|[=-, November Nids by the latest rumour, December The Höbbit plus maybe something else if GW actually wants to sell something new then.

  17. Backed Deadzone and looking forward to it arriving. I will stump up for this as I hope it will be an excellent game but mainly because I have a large collection of games that GW released that were complete as is (aaah those were the days...). And this will top things off nicely....until next year dammit
