Inquisitor, Mechanicus, and Death Wing are all great games! Vermintide is pretty good too. I haven't read any of the 40k novels because I'd have no idea where to start. Do they have omnibus' of those things?
I have thought about playing Inquisitor several times, perhaps I'll give it a shot. I just finished everything I wanted to do in Fallout 76, now I bounce back and forwardth between WoW Classic and CoD: Modern Warfare.
Yes, there are many omnibus sets. "Where do you start?" is a question even hardcore 40k aficionados have a hard time answering, it is easy to argue that the mythos is the deepest and widest reaching out of any setting ever created. I just randomly started reading them after finishing nearly every other Fantasy/Sci Fi novel on the racks at B&N, and had no idea what was even going for quite some time. Eventually it just started to click.
There are a lot of guides and opinions online, but the "Eisenhorn Trilogy" is often quoted as a good starting point. Or, even though it is set 10,000 years earlier in circa 30k AD, the 1st book of the Horus Heresy is a good place to begin as well, it's called "Horus Rising".
Ultimately what makes 40k so great in my opinion is there are countless novels in which the "bad guys" are the main protagonists, so it's a nice change of pace.
