Inquisitor works so much better in 28mm than it does in the large-scale model range they released. Still, I don't see why necromunda might not be a better choice for your pals. As for Rackham Models - in certain situations, I find Rackham stuff so much better quality than anything GW has ever produced, so long as we ignore the plastic pre-painted stuff (as these are made by a middle party anyway and Rackham supplies the rules). The old metals though, particularly the Griffin stuff is far more gothicy in style for Inquisitor, which is why I'm not surprised Rackham models came to your buddies' minds. Necromunda stuff does lend itself to Inquisitor quite well, and the conversions you have done (especially as they're all bits) are extremely good and it's clear what each character type is (Inquisitor, Desperado, Chrono Gladiator/Archo Flagellant and obviously a servo skull). The best advantage of 28mm Inquisitor is actually having a MUCH easier job of supplying appropriate terrain, which totally ended our own Inquisitor gaming among my own gaming group. We should see more 28mm stuff as it might encourage other people to get back to playing it in a way they can afford (and actually get the models they want). But the other part of me doesn't, and makes me want to say play Necromunda or scour ebay for an old copy of cyberpunk, than play that game.

Thank you Dim for your reply
I love playing Inquisitor, I like how it plays to a high level of detail, I like how it takes in to account all the things 40k and Necromunda either can't or don't. ( yes you can run out of bullets and have a gun JAM )
It allows a player to explore parts of the 40k background you cant do in 40k or in other games.
You can get in to the deep dark corners of the imperium and take a peek at whats going on, everthing from routing out foul cults to exploring for archotech.
You can involve elements that have been played down in 40k like the more mature themes like cults and deamons.

As for playing in 28mm rather then 54mm ?? its simple for me. ( don't get me wrong I do own a few 54mm models too )
I got a HUGE bitz box already in 28mm I need not scour Ebay for parts for 28mm .
Necromunda bits are great for adding character as its not all guys with lasguns and power armour.

as for Rackem models I can't find them locally, so for me I am stuck using GW bitz ( again I got a huge box full too )

and in future Dim keep an eye open for Ursarkar Creed and a Capt Sicarius redone for use in Inquisitor

I think 28mm would be better not only for the fact that there is more out there for people to use(as INQ seems to have died out nearly altogether), but for 1: like as what was said before, there is more room for a game to be played, but 2: Orks can get in on the action. I can't see anything in the 40K world that wouldn't have some random loota or some blood axes scampering in every once in awhile to get the next new(to them) peice of loot.

28" is both cheaper and IMO far easier to convert but how far would you say a yard is for 40k scale I think either 1" or 1/2" but maybe something else like 1cm, anone have a good idea for this PS. to stay on topic, love the models, especially the servo-skull
