Default Inquisitorial Vessels in BFG

I was wondering... Does anyone remember this rule? I want to say it was in Issue 16 of ... damn, I don't remember the magazine name, but I remember the issue number... Anyway, the rules involved 2 things: Grey Knight fleets, which were basically just Space Marine fleets painted for grey knight livery, which got a bonus against Daemonvessels. You could also purchase an Inquisitor; for 75 points he got one reroll per turn, but pass or fail, it was your only reroll (Inquisitor's order superceding the admiral).

Would you allow one of these to be played? In my GK fleet, I was running an Inquisition Black Ship (a custom piece that I think become mostly official), which then was given the Venerable Battle Barge upgrade... and I had an Inquisitor in it.

I think the magazine was Inferno!

And would I allow someone to use an addition that is, more or less, official? Yeah I don't see why not. And if it wasn't considered official, I find BFG to be so laid back that as long as it wasn't to powerful or good I wouldn't have an issue with it.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Inferno? That doesn't sound right, but.... maybe. It was BFG's official mag, just like the Town Crier was for Mordheim.

Yeah, that's the ship in question on page 24. In my army, specifically because it's a Grey Knight fleet, I allow it to be used as a command vessel by buying the Venerable Battle Barge upgrade, even though there's also a Barge in the fleet... I'm willing to pay for my flagship to be 'fluffy'.
