Here's my take on what could work for you.

Black Knights
Pulled from almost every traitor legion, the Black Knights are one of Fabius Bile's successful modifications. The legionaires chosen had to pass new trials, and were pitted against rage, plague, sorcery and pain. The few who survived the indoctrination to Chaos Undivided, were genomodified to amplify latent psychic powers. Their black carapaces were etched with blasphemous runes of power. Thier armor was forged anew into a mockery of the Grey Knights of the Imperium, with unholy icons gleaming brightly along the edges of their shining sable armor.

These Black Knights appear unexpectedly at the height of Imperial Mass, when a living saint is raising her voice to the Emperor, or when a priest is raising his voice against heresy. Working in conjunction with traitor cults in the midst of these congregations, their timing is precise, their arrival unexpected and the endgame horrific for any martyr to the Emperor.

These highly trained warriors of the Undivided pantheon strike down those thought invulnerable with their modified Kai Guns, which cause rosarii to overload and iron halos to crack.

Yet, these Black Knights abhor their erstwhile allies. Those who are not as pure in their devotion to Chaos, the traitor marine legions. As such, they abstain from allying with them except in the most dire circumstance.

Black Knights may take disciplined traitor guard cultists as allies (inducted imperial guard), and may from time to time, be led by a Dark Master (Inquisitor)... These are feared men, as they often work for Abbaddon or his generals to weed out the impure followers of Chaos.

About the subject of turning a Grey Knight to chaos... Did not one deamon say to Justicar Alaric at one point, that he would make him the first Grey Knight to turn to chaos? I remember that from somewhere, and if a daemon says so, then it is probably true that no Grey Knight had turned to chaos, and at least Alaric is still a pure kick ass Grey Knight, and I am waiting for more novels about him, cause he is kick ass...

And somewhere else it was stated that Grey Knights had silver runes and spells beneth their skin and on the black carapace to protect them from chaos...

Also, a Grey Knights only wish is to have his body buried on Titan, below their fortress, so they would not turn to Chaos cause of fear or something... And they dont fear death, so they would probably do anything to prevent capture, probably blow up a nuke or something as well...

And went out the air of a GK ship, probably not, as they have psychic runes all over the place, preventing chaos to enter, or something like that, and a stronger, more heavily armoured hull on their ship, making it harder for boarding torpedoes to penetrate it... And if, and it is a damn huge if, someone would be capable of venting out the air of every section of the damn ship, then the GKs would probably still survive, as the Power Armour has enough air for a moment in the cold emptiness of space, and if the enemy would capture their ship, they would probably blow up the main reactor and escape in drop pods somewhere, or in a Thunderhawk...

And on the subject of rising their dead bodies from the dead, highly unlikely,as the Grey Knights dont leave their dead friends behind without a good reason, a very good one, so they would probably at least collect the geneseed from their dead Brother, destroy or hide his body or something like, so basically you wont find anything useful in a dead GK, or nothing at all, so that kind of screws the whole idea of rising the from the dead...

And as a Grey Knight player, I am straightly against everything that would make the GKs Chaos, as they are the purest things in the Imperium, and without them humanity would not exist anymore...

if they could turn to chaos, they'd be in my army!

I want to pull a group of SoB's toghether, outfit them with some anti-GK fluff and call them Red Qeens. Whats worse than getting your ass kicked by Chaos? Getting your ass kicked by Chaos chicks, that's what.

That's how it's supposed to be done! Well done, good sir.

The day you met me may have been the most life-changing day of your life. For me, it was simply tuesday.

I personally have my own grey Knights in my chaos army and I love them. I have ten terminator and ten tactile. I just failed them and use grey knight codex for them as normal. I fight with myself if I should remove the agies hood or keep it and field them as sorcerers. I recently left a tactile grey knight in my garage and a rat got ahold of it (and the damn thing moved and hid another 94 of my infantry units) and well he broke off the arms of the grey knight and his power pack. (All the other figures were unharmed he just wanted to be an ass and move them to his nest) well I put a rapors power sword in his right hand and a space wolf power sword in left, then replaced his power pack with a chaos one. The repair was amazing and I actually used him as my leader and left my Deamon prince out in my last battle. The stance he's in makes him look massively buff and intimidating and right now he's my newest pride and joy. (I killed the rat the next day)

Woo! 5 years old, nice threadromancy @KINKYWULFEN ! Be sure to check out the last post's date when searching through the forums. Some of the content is from pretty far back and many of the people are no longer involved with the forum.

Maybe start a new thread with some pics of your rat-eaten conversion over in the modelling and painting sub-forum? I'm curious to see what that looks like.

Welcome to Heresy by the way!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

There is a traitor legion in the chaos space marine codex who's back story is that a brotherhood of gray knights were on a world and became enslaved to khorne after touching a tainted blood fountain or something like that anyway the point is that they were gray Knights and are now chaos so I don't see why you couldn't do that.

Great imagination!

Could see this working fluff-wise! Have some +rep my friend!
