I've been messing about with small pieces of the witch hunters list for about a year now, mainly because I like the style of the models and the renaissance sort of feels to the inquisitors, but I've only attached them to my guard army, but I've decided to go for it.
My idea is that of an extended retinue theme. The fluff often mentions that inquisitors often accumulate retinues of up to 150 followers to accomplish specific tasks, plus the reams of added support from the imperial navy, guard marines and such. So why not try to field this as an army? My fluff plan is that my inquisitor has been working with the imperial guard for many years (partially due to an overabundance of models), and has been siphoning off the best troops for his personnel guard, proceeding to train equip and indoctrinate them for his personal use.
This personal guard would form the basis of the army, and here's the controversial bit. They would be represented by sisters of battle rules.
Conversion wise, I'll use guardsmen with bolters, and added pieces of amour, but with a renaissance feel. I'll be using lot's of empire bits to achieve this, and allot of gold in the colour scheme to suggest the quality of the equipment.
Any criticism or feedback welcome, I'd rather get it before I've made the effort to start than after. I have started knocking together a couple of models though, which I'll post soon.
Couple of pics of a quick prototype I knocked up, I apologise for the quality, my camera has become borked, so I've had to improvise with my laptop webcam.
