Chaos Grey Knights!

So, GW just released the new Grey Knights for advanced order.

I, although I love chaos, think grey knights are awesome; but it doesn't feel right to be playing Imperium for me.

So I wondered if it would be cool to do Chaos Grey Knights. I'm not saying necessarily they'd be renegade Grey Knights, but maybe the Grey Knight equivalent for chaos (as in super renowned champion Chaos Space Marines).
This would take a lot of convincing fluff to make it work, as well as a lot of converting, and possibly re-naming a few rules and weapons to make it sound more chaosy (I like to do all that stuff though so this sounds really fun to me ).

Oh god, cue epic nerd rage and flufftardedness.

It'd be very, very cool if you could model up a Chaos army that uses the Grey Knight Codex for its rules. I think to appease those that frown upon counts as you'd have to do some pretty extreme converting and put a good amount of imagination into how you represent various pieces of wargear and special abilities, but if that doesn't bother you then I'd say go for it.

ive had this idea many a time but never the motivation to make it work. Do it well and ill give you some rep

btw convert the grey knights in to the chaos rather than the other way around or GW might think its being ripped off (that's our job!) and sue or whatever else it is when big companies get pissed off.

If they really hate you they might lock you in a room with Jervis Johnson

Run it as Abaddon's personal devotee's for the Grey Knight part. Heretics and Lost and the Damned for inquisition part.

Daemon Princes for Dreadknights.

Done and done.

There need not be any butthurt and nerdrage over this, representing something that can't be represented by the most 'logical' codex.

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

There doesn't need to be, but there almost inevitably is and it's funny.

They can't sue you.
If you sculpt an exact duplicate of a GW model, it isn't illegal unless you sell it, which would arguably be copyright infringement, or even forgery.
Moulding their parts is different, because you're USING their work.

But if you just make it look like something they make, there's nothing even nearly wrong with it.


Anyway, GK rules would make a good Sorcerer coven, I guess, with GKSS being Aspiring Sorcerers, Terminators being some sort of Rubric Marine (because they aren't as Psyker-y), and the rest is obviously just Sorcerers or something creative (like some sort of Daemon Engine for the Dreadknight, kinda like a Defiler).

Still waiting for the shitstorm of nerd rage. Everybody grab an umbrella while you can, we got a forecast of cloudy with a chance of bowel movements.

As for my personal opinion, go for it! Although at the same time, I wouldn't want to make it entirely GK units. Mix it up with actual Chaos stuff for delicious. You'll need that umbrella I mentioned earlier for it, though.
