Short story, play 40k with some friends who had multiple armies, went to the store and bought a DH army. It is one of the armies not fielded by the group so that was one of the things that appealed to me, I liked the GK models and was vastly more concentrated in troops/point compared to the Tyranid Army I was playing off of my friends (Argh, their talons keep getting caught on each other).
We're mostly playing 1500 pt games and so far, I have the following of my own:
Corteaz (Inq Lord with Retinue)
These are all friendly games, so proxying a LR for a Rhino, etc is not a huge deal. However, I would eventually want to field all my own troops so I do not have to borrow from the guys. Having read about 5-10 1500pt lists so far, I figure I will want to buy at least:
Are there any other strong suggestions that would be important? Maybe 20ish generic marines to fill in as off-units.
Welcome to LO, 40K, and the Daemonhunters!
If you plan on fielding any GK, you can't use SM, so I wouldn't bother buying those 20 generic marines.
You're desperately short on Troops. I'd say you need 20+ GK in power armor, and/or 20+ IST. Preferrably at least two more full Troop squads. In this army (and, really, all 40K armies) you'll get a lot further with Troops than you will with all the shiny extras like assassins and GKT.
Look around the forum - there're plenty of "I'm new, what do I buy" threads here. You'll find a lot of differing opinions, but that will actually be more helpful in shaping a list for yourself. Here are two good (and recent) threads to start with: Getting Into Daemon Hunters and Starting GK. Also, check the pinned posts at the top of the board for tactics, and the army list forum for list ideas.

Yes you definitely need more troops. My advice would be to add IST's as they bring some heavier weapon power, and my thread answers a lot of questions. The Termies you shouldn't use until 2000 points. Good luck with your gaming and another Inquisitor is never a bad thing.
