“Today we take a closer look at the second member of the Triumvirate of the Imperium: Inquisitor Katarinya Greyfax, including a bit about her origins and how she works on the tabletop.”

Now, before you skip the video – you might want to stop and rethink that. This isn’t just a fluffy advertisement – this video actually goes into her powers and use on the table top as well. You can skip to that section HERE. But watch the video. It’s worth a look!


Aura of Oppression – “Forces an enemy unit to take a pinning test. Even if passed, they can’t sweeping advance, can’t run, can’t make turbo boosts, can’t fire overwatch. Can augement to warp charge 3 versions that turns it into an AoE that effects all enemies with 12″ of her.”

GW Writer Simon Grant goes on with even more info about the Inquisitor AND he talks about some of the unique abilities of the Triumvirate of the Imperium.



Greyfax, Saint Celestine and Belisarius Cawl are heading to a tabletop near YOU!

    Actually no Overwatch because of this psychic power does not fit very well with the Black Templar Chapter Tactics…

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    She seems cool 🙂

    Bit of a dick what with the not liking Celestine and all.

  • Old zogwort

    These so called Black Templar’s are imposters.
    Suffer Not the Unclean to Live.
    Abhor the Witch. Destroy the Witch and Kill the traitors.

    • Ty Hayden

      I always thought the “no psyker’s” slant of the Black Templar was a little odd for a fleet based chapter. They rely on Astropaths and Navigators, both use a form of pychic ability [and navigators being mutants] yet they are fine with them.

      Besides, if they start going after all Psyker Inquisitors, they will quickly find themselves labeled Excommunicate Traitoris.

      • Red_Five_Standing_By

        They adhere to the Council of Nikea which says that Navigators and Astropaths are a-ok but all other psykers are uncool.

        • Dumbcow1

          This is correct. We still adhere to the Emperors decrees. No pity, no remorse, no fear.

  • Sonic tooth

    sounds like the kind of character i usually hate in the books

    • Muninwing

      now that you said it…

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Totally going to happen. Greyfax is clearly going to be a catalyst that helps break the Imperium up.

    • Old zogwort

      Meh the only interesting thing about Celestine is that she will rise again when she dies. So expect her to die a lot in the story ; )

      • Sonic tooth

        grimdark needs a bit of noblebright every now and again

  • Kolobius

    I just wanna know why in the world does she have a lit candle on her head

    • grim_dork

      It’s actually an ice cream cone.

    • georgelabour

      It’s either

      a) symbolic of her bringing the light of purification into the darkness.

      b) Scented with the tears of a billion innocents whose salt is anathema to the unclean.

      c) 9000 years ago some senile guy bribed a clerk into passing the ‘inquisitors in sexy armor enjoy hot wax’ mandate. This being the Imperium no one’s bothered to overturn the holy law because it was stamped four times, and they now only have three of the stamps required.

      • Kolobius

        All valid options. But truly, there are some things that these sculptors put on these scifi models that just make me scratch my head.

    • Inquisitor Valeria

      According to the WD article, it’s linked to her eyepiece. Doesn’t say exactly what it helps her detect, but my understanding is that it’s somewhat like an infrared source on night-vision goggles. Gotta have some light to amplify. In the Grimdark the concept could be applied to warp energy or something. *shrug*

    • Maitre Lord Ironfist

      Did you every try too light a zigarett in the wind?

      She is Cadians best friend with it

    • DJ860

      Same reason she’s wearing high-heels into battle I suppose.

  • DeadlyYellow

    The more art I see, the less I like her.

    • Sonic tooth

      sad eyed supermodel in one pic, evil English nanny in another

  • Gabor Fazekas

    i just hope they removed one use from condemnor

  • Painjunky

    I don’t care who she is.

    Can we get to some CSMs or xenos now please?

    • The Rout

      Yeah its been AGES since the last CSM release…. oh wait….

  • Jim Morr

    “She is the eye emperor”… I would like to here emperor comment on this by If the Emperor had a Text-to-Speech Device .

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      He has the Tarot 😉

  • Victor Hartmann

    In the heat of battle, the Imperials weren’t likely to question a long forgotten Inquisitor who takes up arms in the hour of desperation but now that the battle is over, I wonder if others (including other Inquisitors) will be suspicious of her since she has been in the hands of the Necrons for what? Hundreds of years? Has she been corrupted by the xenos? Can she truly be trusted?

  • memitchell

    Fifty shades of Greyfax.

    Oh, c’mon! Someone had to be the first to say it.

  • Kai Qian

    look at the high heels she is wearing. I find it is ugly…
