well, IIRC, 100 GK termies battled a number of bloodthirsters and angron, the WE primarch, during the first armageddon war, which would make GKT a lot better than they already are...
12 bloodthirsters and angron versus 100 grey knight terminators. And bear in mind that only a handful of grey knights were left afterwards.
That's actually a pretty fair match in points value, even if you assum there were no brother captains with daemonhunter wargear (there were) and you allow a whopping 2240 points of khornate goodness for angron.
It's a game I'd like to see though.Is the grand master actually intended to represent the chapter master, though?
It's never made clear (indeed there's never any suggestion of how the higher command of the chapter works, or even if there is one; it may just be Inquisitorial control) - and anyone trying to map ranks across from other chapters should remember that 'brother-captains' turn up as terminator squad leaders....
Really would like to see a codex inquisition, rather than daemonhunters, or whatever.
Essentially you have
Generic Inquisition units (stormtroopers/arbites, inquisitors, inquisitor lords, assasins, etc)
Inducted imperial guard
or Allied Marines (if not using a chamber millitant)
and one (with possible allies of a second) of:
Ordo Malleus Chamber Millitant (Grey Knights)
Ordo Xenos Chamber Millitant (Deathwatch kill team, lone deathwatch veterans)
Ordo Hereticus Chamber Millitant (Adepta Sororitas)
Radical Units (Rogue Psykers, Daemonhosts, Alien Allies, Wargear)
With all the inquisitor's armouries and henchmen collapsed into one list - for example, can anyone think of a convincing reason why a Hereticus inquistor; who often works hand-in-glove with the ecclesiarchy, can't take a hierophant (a preacher). Equally, an ordo xenos inquisitor is probably the one most likely to find himself in a battle (in the normal sense of the word, with opposing army et all) - an inferno pistol seems a sensible thing to come packing...
Ordos are not a strict organisation (see Inquisitor
) any more than the radical or puritan factions are, and any given inquisitor can work with several or none...for example, Eisenhorn and Ravenor are in theory Ordo Xenos, yet their defining foes are heretics and daemons...
