I vote "go for it", astartes have access to lots of non-standard stuff, what with chapter forges etc, and a chapter with close ties to the Mechanicus could pull emperor only knows what from out of the bag.....

There's no note of the Tyrant's Claw being posessed or enchanted, Huron's pretty loose on the whole 'worshipping chaos' thing.
The one issue was the fact that he had to lose his arm and about half his fucking chest to have that one put in, plus a modified backpack. But other than that, it's a pretty stable foundation for an idea.

I would simply make it a relic, either within the chapter, found by the chapter or given to them by the mechanicum. It might have some known history and tradition to it, but I'd keep it's origins obscure to give it some mystique. Just my opinion of course.

Some chapters have unique weaponry, often from the Dark Age of Technology or Great Crusade. Look at those insane lightning claws/chainfists from Carcharodons. Just make it unique, good-looking and rules-legal, and don't forget about sharing photos with us.

Oh, and such things deserve some history - just few sentences, so they won't be just powerfists/meltas, but something special.

Why stop with just a melta? Why not add two meltas? Or two twin linked meltas? Or how about an Emperor Titan?

Because some Space Marines can take Powerfists and meltaguns, and cause it might actually fit on it? Come on, it would make sense, and as long as it's rules-legal, he can even make storm bolter with built-in thunderhammer...
