Default Sons of Malace Army (Gray Knights)

I was thinking of a Gray Knights army to be converted into a old chaos army called sons of malace or as the chaos god was previously named Malal. which if you do not know was a chaos god whom dispises all chaos gods and granted his followers with anti-daemon powers/weapons such as the dread axe. but any way i figured that Gray Knights being anti-daemon any way i would convert the models to look chaos like and run them that way and besides they have some things that seem a little chaosy any way (like the daemon blade, warp rift psychic power and daemon hosts) so i was wondering what your thoughts are on the subject and if anyone has already done this i would like to see pics of it.

Here's a pretty good project log by Moonschwine of his Brotherhood of Malal. I don't think he has any GK conversions but the painting is great.

It might help you out with some ideas and inspiration.

I had a similar idea for my army. Since I've been looking into theme my army choices into just a "super force". The idea was a "Dark Council" which was a pure counts-as GK force.

I was going to use the Forgeworld Conversion stuff for Terminators to make things look more menacing:

Also Nearly all the Chaos Characters like Huron and Zhufor make for excellent character stand ins. I was going to use Zhufor as a Grandmaster swap out piece and Huron as a Librarian. A head swap and an Arm Swap make radical changes to them.

I was then going to use the Death Guard Conversion kit to make "Corruptors" which where the "opposites" of Purifiers.

Some 3rd Party stuff such as that at Scribor:

Or Pig Iron:

Also make great conversion parts for inquisitors and henchmen etc etc.

Hope that helps give you some ideas. Otherwise feel free to PM me.

This is purely something I have been wondering, not a slam to your idea, which sounds like a cool one.

Have any GK ever converted to Chaos? I thought the main idea with them is that they are immune to the lure of chaos, created by the Emperor during the HH to correct that weakness in the regular legions. Something about him giving every grey knight much more aptitude and ability with psychic powers so that they can better control and defend against chaos' influence.

Gray Knights themselves have not been corrupted but the general theme of the gray knights is the same as the son of malice (minus the mutations, cannibalism, and excepting a chaos god as their master.) but other than that they make a perfect army to convert a sons of malice army in my opinion.

Also, black + white = grey. They're practically the same thing

I wouldn't say that the Grey Knights started worshiping Malal, I would just use the Grey Knights codex as a Sons of Malice codex if you wanted to go that route.

Personally, I would use the CSM codex and just write a few custom rules of my own and then ask my opponents if it would be ok to use them. No need to write an entire codex or anything but maybe a few special rules and a character or two.

There's actually a thread started with some Sons of Malice homerules.
