does anyone here have a black ship themed army?
any troop recommendations for lists-- I figured IG stormtroopers would be the only must.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
I doubt there would be Officio Assassinorium agents attatched to every black ship.
Although saying that, a Culexus might be sensible given that you have a brig full of untrained psykers.
Black Ships are not just =I= ships, they are specifically for making the rounds gathering psykers to be either trained or fed to the emperor.
An Inquisitor lord, other inquisitors, a good few IST's (house rule -1 initiative due to constant mindwipings?) and possibly a command HQ from Codex: Imperial Guard.
I wouldnt have thought even the most radical inquisitor would risk putting a Daemon, no matter how well bound, in such close proximity to lots of very scared psykers.

I'm not seeing how anyone would get away with keeping Daemonhosts on Black Ships either, if only for practical reasons. Could you imagine the commotion that would cause in the staff canteen?
Aside from the Hosts I'd go with the consensus; ISTs with Rhinos/ Chimaeras, Inquisitors, Lords, retinues, plus any assassins (temple or Death Cult) that are following the Inquisitors/ Lords around, and maybe a few Priests if you fancy making it a WH list instead of a DH list (which might make more sense if they're collecting and transporting untrained psykers). HQs from the Guard codex might also be appropriate, as might a few squads of inducted heavy weapons platoons or what-have-you to represent the doomed schmucks roped into serving the Inquisition. Basically just a Puritan list with a few Inducted IG elements and an appropriately brooding colour scheme.
any ideas how I could make sisters of silence in my crew? and would I make them a unit or just HQ?
but in my reading on black ships sisters of silence are the only must have :x
Death Cult Assassins maybe? The models fit with the artwork, and I suppose you could always make some house rule to account for their Blankness.
Wouldn't you just use sisters of battle? They hunt down psychers after all.
In everything I've read, the Black Ships are full of stormtroopers. An Inquisitor and his retinue (Death Cultists too) make sense.
I have to agree that you are more likley to find Hereticus there than Malleus.
No Grey Knights, they have their own ships.

I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
