Phyco Guy,

You do indeed count as moving, thus heavy weapons cannot fire. However: Your Plasmaguns can doubletap to 12", while your meltas/flamers/grenade launchers are all assault weapons. Mo problems here.
No: You may fire with two models as per current rules. AS I pointed out above the Inquisition codexii are still RAW for 3rd ed. 4th ed. firepoint rules on the rhino state that they have two points that can each allow one firer. (As per Codex: Space Marines) Thus a rhino-mounted squad can proceed 12", pop the top, pop smoke, and still have two meltas blazing over the side!

Good times,
Ged

A pure inquisition army has always been on my mind (and the bane of my bank balance!), it sounds like a cool idea, although personally I would use inducted guardsmen (To get access to some cheap infantry and heavy weapons), to provide cover for the storm troopers and so forth.

I've seen one but it didn't fair so well.

combination of bad rolls(calidus, I think thats the sneaky one that moves opponents models before game. got kill in hand to hand by 6 guardsmen) and tourny rules (4 turn games losses from earilier games were not replaced. Didnt help I had 2 russes) caused it to get wiped fairly easy. It is good but I think it needs some long range anti-tank firepower

Johnnyboy,

AN excellent point with an excellent answer. Contrary to popular belief the Exorcist is an Inquisition Tank, NOT a Sister of Battle Tank! Unlike an Immolator which is definitely an SOB tank and cannot be taken w/o them; the Exorcist can be seen alongside the Repressor as a proud vehicle of the Ordo Hereticus, and occasionally even the Adeptus Arbites. THis this fine vehicle fulfills it'sa role admirably.
Another oft-overlooked bit of fun is the much malaigned orbital strike. Though inaccurate, it's arrival can be carefully controlled. It can make a mess of players that enjoy the use of tank formations in cover to benifit from hull-down. ;D
Finally: Pentient Engines, while not Long-Range per se, can blast through evemy infantry and armor with ease so long as they are properly screened early on; and the priest led stormies with evicerators that usually accompany them are beautiful indeed!
FInally: If worst comes to worst and inquisitor can always bring a Land Raider to the table, and give it Blessed Hull. Nothing says long-ranged AT love like a pair of Twin-Lascannons and a hull immune to melta and rending weapons!

Just a few stray thoughts,
Ged

Er blessed hull is a Black Templars upgrade that only effects lance weapons. The closest thing I can find at the moment would be sacred hull & thats nothing close to what was described. So did I over look something or is it an Imperial Armour upgrade?

Blessed is only available to Grey Knight Vehicles, but doesn't seem to offer the powers that Kytonus is suggesting.
