So last week there was buzz over at Bell of Lost Souls that GW was pulling the Inquisition. Witch Hunters and Daemon Hunters were both being pulled.
Today I noticed that while the armies are still available, the Codexes have been pulled from the books section of the Games Workshop site.
So what's the deal? A lot of people are thinking that the Codex: Witch Hunters and Codex: Daemon Hunters are being replaced with a Codex: Inquisition that combines the two of them. Some people think that the Inquisition has seen better days and are gone. And some people are still asking for their Dark Eldar codex to be updated.
Honestly can the Inquisition be gone? It's a vital part of the fluff, there are plenty of Inquisition novels out there. I was thinking of doing a Daemon Hunters army as my next army (although my choice for my next army after Orks changes a lot, and I'm nowhere near ready to start looking for something else), so I hope that the Codex: Inquisition option is what's in store. I just know that it'll be a sad day in the 40K universe if the Inquisition is no longer a playable army in the game.
**Edit** BoLS listed rumored miniature releases for 2010, and Grey Knights, Witch Hunters, and Daemon Hunters were juicily inserted around tender morsels of 40K goodness like a new Ork Dread (/drool) and Dark Eldar love (which I'm not holding my breath for).
