The same as a guardsman looks like.Look at the tallerans(Think i spelled it).They would most likely have an abundunce of priests more then a normal army would have.

Actually, this theme has sparked something in me You can run it in one of three ways:

-Pure Guard
-Guard w/ Heavy Witch Hunters Allies
-WH w/ lots of inducted guard.

Nothing like waves of guardsmen screaming "For the Emperor!", "Burn Heretic scum" and "Save the Inquisitor" while Joe guardsman throws himself on the Traitor's bayonet and pulls the pin on his hand grenade.....

I can think of them possibly looking REALLY good as Vostroyans myself. Which of the three are you choosing though?

Depends on what regiment.Theres millions of regiments,of course there all going to be different.They would just have more faith in the emperor.Nothing more,there kit would be standerd like every regiment gets.I hounestly dont think theres a difference other then the regiment itself.

But why settle for less? A good visual theme can light up a table! Vostroyans are ornate and exotic enough to be perfect Ministorial IG!

Might be worth seeing if Necromunda has an abundance of robed fanatics...

it sure does! one entire gang is those fanatics....cawdor i think? and theres always the redemptor cult members. only thing is that ya got to get them offline or bitz order. and they are all metal, so expensive. but sure would be cool! they got soem crazy priests with combi-eviscerators (with flamer) .

or...you could go with sober "temple guard" types...vostroyans would be pretty cool for those.

fanatics or disciplined types, basically. maybe like a warrior-monk kinda theme for the disciplined guys.

I think your army can go one of two ways, you can either botch it or make it brilliant, find the right models and schemes and your good and then find the wrong ones and........................... These types of armies offer the best conversion opportunities for your commander/cardinal
