So, I saw on John's Toy Soldiers that GW has released the PDF updates for the inquisition here (you need to be logged in to download). Minimal fluff, no witch hunter adversaries/lost & the damned, etc, kinda bland like the old BA PDF. However the Ordo Malleus has NO MENTION of allies OR inducted units! While the Ordo Hereticus ONLY has inducted units, and cannot be taken as allies!
So much for my oddball Inquisitors & their accompanying circus side show units! I'll probably be able to do something with the Ordo Hereticus, but the Malleus is effectively dead to me (barring maybe a kill team). I really don't have enough Witch Hunters to field as a stand alone army (and no Murl, I don't want your SoB's) unless its a bare bones setup with a hellova lot of IG or SM inductees to make it battle worthy.
Currently Ranger Smith and his little contingent of the Imperial Forestry Service is in shock, fearful that they've been rendered obsolete!
Personally, as quiet as GW has slid this one out, I'm inclined to ignore it & use my codexes that I spent $20+ EACH for! Rendering a codex obsolete with a new one years later, no problem. Doing it with a PDF...WTF???
