Default who has more power??

who in the Imperium has more power??

Is it the Inquisitors or a space marine primarch leading an army?

It's not something that is easy to compare directly, as few primarchs survived long past after the Heresy (I think all the loyalist primarchs were dead, missing, or in stasis within a few centuries.) The Inquisition began after the heresy, and has gradually accrued more power up to the current date. I would have to say the primarchs were far more powerful in their time than any inquisitor, though.

The Inquisitor can take over a small section of the amry but if he tried to mess with Grimar's command, bad things will happen.

Ya.. any Primarch.. but as its been said, they would never meet adn Inquisitor and a Primarch.. I'm sorry I took the question to mean instead a Chapter Master.

Comparing a Chapter Master and an Inquisitor is more interesting. I would have to go with an Inquisitor Lord on this one, mainly because while a single Inquisitor might have trouble ordering one chapter around, he could potentially call in favors with many other chapters and Titan Legions, as well as directly commandeering Imperial Guard Regiments, Battlefleets (Exterminatus), etc.. In a straight-up match, a single Chapter Master couldn't call in anywhere near the amount of firepower as an Inquisitor Lord.

I'd say an inquisitor couldnt order a chaptermaster around, he could request aid from the master and he'd probably give it to avoid the eye of the inquisition poking into their business, and inquisitor lord no compettition, the lord of the ordos could flat up demand it, he might have to lean on the master a bit, but he'd get it :P.

anyone can push the guard around ^-^

As the power in question is relative, both are deppending on the circumstances.

Primarachs would be all like "What'd you say to me boy? Say that again, I wanna hear it reeeaaaall good so's I know exactly what it is I'm gonna slap you about the head for." Inquisitor Lord vs. Primarch, no way. Primarchs, as the first SM's have far more authority. Inquisitors are just jumped up guardsmen who've gotten too big for their boots in the eyes of the Primarchs.

Now Chapter Master vs. Inqisitor Lord...that's a bit different. The Inquisition can wield quite a big stick when it wants to, and a Chapter Master is merely the current head of a chapter - not nearly as much prestige as a Primarch.
