Read your Warseer thread. Every place I saw there that said SM CAN'T ever be inquisitors was opinion of forum posters unsubstantiated by any authority.
The matter is simple to work through. Firstly, have you ever seen, in an official publication, a Space Marine Inquisitor? Nathaniel Garro and Iacton Qruze don't count, because A: the Inquisition didn't exist as of the end of Flight of the Eisenstein and their ties to its foundation are entirely speculative (it has never been stated by any official source) at this point, and B: it is as likely that they would have been the origin of the Grey Knights rather than the first Inquisitors.
Is the answer no? Thought so.
Now, while it's difficult to make absolute statements for 40k, it isn't impossible, I will give you that... but there is one notion that should always be considered when assuming the unprecedented - just because it doesn't say you can't, doesn't mean you should.
My response to the question "are there Space Marine Inquisitors"? If there are, I've never seen them, and consequently if they exist they're so rare as to be entirely unheard of.
Which, in an organisation as justifiably paranoid and relatively small in membership as the Inquisition, seems extremely telling, as far as I'm concerned.
