I own the game, and it\'s really involved. As a tabletop gaem you need to know the rules backwards for it not to be all consuming of a day, but if you do know the rules then you\'re ok. It\'s a stonking game once you\'r ein the zone and if you got people who will play it along side you then its well worth it. Plus you use big scale mini\'s with loads of detail on them.
And as the mini\'s are not needed ni quantity its a good solution to having big collections.
The only drawback is the scale of the terrain. You\'ll need to make bigger scenics, that was offputting for me a bit, so I try to play using 40k mini\'s when I can to save on the terrain issue.
Like I say the game is great, but you need to know it backwards to get reasonable timing in gameplay, and if the terrani factor isnt an issue, then definately go for it.
(My funniest moment was a mutant sniper (I.e 1.5 eyes and very bas ballistic skill with a big gun) who tried to snipe someone, failed, had the gun backfire and fell out of his highpoint and broke his legs... you just cant make those moments up!)

Id love to make a real nice personalised model whether to play with or not as their is so much more scope for customisation at that scale!

Inquisitor scale is easily fixed. Play it on the 28mm scale. You should already have enough miniature from 40k armies or necromunda. Will need to convert the Inquisitor rules from yards to inches though.

Hawkins = Genius
Certainly a great way to get into the game very easily.
Although it does remove one of the attractions of the game, building and customising larger scale models.
Great suggestion though.

I\'ve got the rules on my computer,but I\'ve never had a chance to play. Plus, the rules seem a bit complex.

Like I said before its really involved, but it is really good fun, and my mate was former GW staff so he had lots of Iquisitor scale stuff and we played basically a game of Inquisitor rules 40k, and it was a lot of dun, even if the story did get lost somewhere...
I recommend downloading it for free from here (http://www.specialist-games.com/inquisitor/rulebook.asp) and taking a look. I mean, theres no harm ni trying it with 40k mini\'s and deciding if its worth the cash for the bigger mini\'s.

Cool, will do. I think I downloaded the rules ages ago... Have to look on one of my numerous backup DVDs.

I\'ve wanted to try it ever since I saw it on the Specialist Games site. The models are awesome I really want to paint a really sweet looking Inquisitor with really ornate armour and thing of that nature. Just an awesome game.

I keep saying this... its great. Download the rules for free and use 40k models for now to test it... it\'ll convert you for life if you can get around the rather complex rules.
DO IT NOW!
