PostSubject: GW Inquisition Mystery Box (after space hulk and dreadfleet)   Tue Aug 13, 2013 2:42 am

Rumours of an Inquisition based Skirmish level game are spreading, for a limited release soon - very exciting!

From Dakka Dakka...
 minor update from a Spanish Blog on the 2013 Mystery Box, that seems not to be Bloodbowl:
http://www.misolvidadasfiguras.es/2013/08/inquisition-para-octubre.html
(translation by Rickyard over at faeit212):
Quote :
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.
As a reminder, here the old rumour by TastyTaste over at BoK:

Rumor Has It: Blood Bowl isn’t coming, but no one expects the…
Posted by TastyTaste on Jul 15, 2013

Well we are closing in on that time of year again. The time of year when people start to wonder what little surprise Games Workshop is going to pull out of their hat for a special limited release. If GW keeps their every other year track record you can expect something.

Everyone and their mother claims it will be Bloodbowl 2013, sadly I have news for you it ain't coming. Besides Games Workshop licenses Bloodbowl out to any 3rd-party developer who can write a check; Blood Bowl was just one of those rumors that makes sense to a fan-boi, but not (remember Dreadfleet) Games Workshop. Speaking of misfires Games Workshop cannot afford to take random risks. Now, GW has consolidated (killing off specialists games) there IPs, they are turning to making new products.

With a lust for a Space Hulk type gravy train GW will return to what makes them the most money: the Warhammer 40k universe.

So, what is up GW's sleeve?

GW is about to enter the skirmish scene with the release of

Warhammer 40k: Inquisition

Inquisition is designed for 2-4 players and each side will use custom cards and dice. Army sizes consist of about 5-10 models per side. A whole new set of models drawn from Blanche artwork will accompany. The game should be flexible as you can make and design your own Inquisitorial retinue. As for rules complexity that is anyone's guess, but the general marketing goal for Inquisition is a gateway game into the greater Warhammer 40k universe.

Beyond that GW, seems to be taking cues from Kickstarter projects like Sedition Wars and home-brewed rules like Inq28 for Inquisitor. This also might not end up as a limited edition run, but that all depends on sales, and if any support is continued will be done through digital expansions and updates.

As it is that is all I have for now, but if my sources hold true expect more information as it comes!

sounds interesting depending on the price and what rule set is like I might think about it but then again I do have a GW ban on buying product from them so time will tell.

keep us posted Laney...

wonder if they would do Kickstarter??? LOL

Rumours are light on this one, but GW are so tight lipped on this kind of thing these days. Will it be Mordheim in Space? Inquisimunda? or Kill Team wrapped up for lots of money?

John Blanche has been doing lots of I-munda style miniatures in White Dwarf, so this rumour might have some weight (Shame it isn't Bloodbowl though!).

If I find out anything more I'll post.

Laney Very Happy

Here's a couple of images I found on the net from WD. It's so stupidly expensive now I tend to just skim read it in the supermarket and put it back on the shelf these days!

I am really looking forward to this. It has a chance to revive my interest in GW games. I really hope it is supported and ongoing. Not a one off limited edition release that no one plays.

No, this was also a big disappointment. At least it was for me as I was really looking forward to this.
It looks like the rumors werd based on the new Inquisition (digital) codex. So no new GW skirmish game. Sad

Rubbish! I was excited about this too! At least Bloodbowl is not completely off the table (I don't buy very much GW at all anymore, but that would get me to shell out some cash).
