I finally finished my army list for Space Marines (necrons and DH done ) and due to the fact that i don't have the novels, nor i can get them here i don't know if it's possible to do this, my idea is to make my chapter some sort of exclusive elite branch of the inquisition probably inside the GK as my army is Space Marines with Daemon Hunters allies, i thought that the DH lack the firepower that SM have.. so i was thinking, a secret organization like this, wouldn't go ask SM to help in a battle, so what about if they had their own chapter, trained by the GK and leaded by a group of GK Inquisitors? .. to further explain the army, it has a Librarian, 2x Tac Squads with 2x Plasma Guns each (using Cleanse and Purify) and 4x Dev Squads (8 man each) using Honor Your Wargear.. 2 of those squads are elite and 2 are Heavy Support .. 1 of the heavy is armed with 4x ML and the other 3 use Plasma Cannons (i know it's insane that amount of plasma, and that is not good game wise.. but i do it coz i'm not about winning every match, i juz like to have a lot of fun with an unique army) and the Allies are 1x Inquisitor Lord, 2x GK squads and 1x GKT squad if i need it (depends on the points i'll play) .. it has done well in the few times i've used it.. and i like it so much that i want to do a fluff for the whole army.
Is there any chance that they can be an elite support squad for the Ordo Malleus? .. coz that would also complement the fluff i want to do for my GK army ... i hope it can be done. And i would like suggestions for the name of the chapter
I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think the ordo malleus would create their own marine chapter besides the Grey Knights. But since you are including a inquisitor, who has the power to call upon the use of anything and anyone he sees fit, you can say this chapter was called upon by this certain inquisitor, they worked so well, he often calls upon them to go to battle.
Which is a little weird, because they are the main force and GKs are the allies, but its the only way you can do it, since GKs cant have allied marines. Its a good idea, let us know how you end up playing it out.
He's coming for you...
I'm doing something vaguely similar with my themed Inquisition army: the Inquisitor is a renengade Lord who has mostly broken off or something, and so doesn't employ any Sisters of Battle, rather Inquisitorial Storm Troopers and Grey Knights... which doesn't make that much sense because SoB would be easier to mislead Anyway you could do something like that, a breakaway faction, because then you can make up just about anything, and make some cool models

You could possibly swing it as a group of Space Marines that for whatever reason owe a tremendous debt to an Ordo Malleus Inquisitor and have pledged to serve him 'till the end.I really don't see any other way to have a Space Marine chapter permanently attached to a Daemonhunter force. The Ordo already has thier chapter, the Grey Knights. The Grey Knights don't need the heavy firepower that other chapters carry around because for one they're stronger,faster,smarter,and all around better then all other marines and two they're specificly trained to fight daemons and nothing else. They don't have to carry tank-killing firepower because killing tanks isn't thier job. If they need heavy weapons,they'll draft the needed specialists from another Imperial army.
like the Grey Knights arnt Elite enough for you?
