Malal sounds good to me, they would be the ones with all the anti-chaos abilities. Also the symbol is easy to convert:



Also, it would be a nice way to escape nerd rage. What nerd could have a go at you if you pull out knowledge of Malal?

I concur, there's ALWAYS at least one...

You would have to change the fluff quite a bit (best of chaos warriors looting GK weapons etc.) Im assuming your going to use the new GK codex but just not for the imperium

All brilliant ideas. I also think the Malal idea's pretty cool too. (funny thing about the symbol: A few weeks ago I was inventing a symbol for my other chaos armies; and I came up with a face that was half black, half white, a red eye, and surrounded by a chaos symbol and a circle; then I see the Malal symbol and I think to myself, god damnit).
I wonder if it would be ok to invent my own minor god (i'm not completely sure about this so don't nerdrage please). Although Malal seems pretty fun; and when people ask you what your chaos space marines are dedicated to you have something different and interesting to say.
I did hear that servants of Malal hate religion and don't live long though.

They don't really fit for IW.

So, after looking at the other minor god's backgrounds I've come to this conclusion:

Malal: I'd be going against Nurgle; unthinkable.
Necoho: entirely impossible.
Zuvassin: that'd be stupid to follow him.

so I'm probably going to make my own minor god that chose not to become a "renegade god", but isn't loyal to the chaos gods either.

Surely the potential is there to do some awesome Tzeentchy stuff with the amount of psykers?

I actually saw this idea on whineseer too, proposing the use of a Khorne csm list, and the appropriate psychic powers representing beserker rage etc. rather than a "psychic power" per se.

The way I see it is - go for it. You spent the money on the models, you spent the money on the codex, and the models are yours to convert however you want. If anyone decides they don't want a game because "they aren't grey knight" - fuck 'em. Make the hobby your own.

It's an interesting idea, but I think the only way to do Berzerkers justice is to use Death Company.
Also, you know, the fact that they are Psychic powers makes that representation pretty flimsy.

Maybe run them as a branch off of the word bearers, they have the capability to control and destroy deamons
