Especially for Ordo Malleus armies because they constist mostly out of metal which makes it very hard to customize.
Inquisitor Lord with Psycannon
Well, the Inquisitor Lord is not really the problem, either an Inquisitor or Coteaz model...
But where to get a psycannon?
It's easy to get a psycannon with terminator armour arm but if you don't want to use terminator armour...
I can't think of ripping a psycannon from a Grey Knight model, it's half melted with the model.
I just took 2 missionaries because I got them with the Grey Knight Dreadnought conversion kit. (Now they have a staff in their hand instead of a banner )
Inferno Pistols on the Seraphim (I know I know, these aren't Daemonhunters but they are often used as and I didn't want to create an extra topic for that)
Just painting the bolt pistols in different colors?
Using the flamer pistols?
I tend to use option 1.
I bought BC Stern and use him as GM (as most do I assume) but somehow I would be more happy if he would have a better posing position with his sword
Generally I like the metal models very much, but somehow it limits how much I can customize.
Why do they implement so much combinations/units in the codex if you can't even buy those (for insane amounts of money)
I can actually help with a couple of these.
For the inferno pistol, the canoness sprue comes with two pistols. One is an infero pistol and the other is a bolt pistol. I bought two sprues. The next challenge is to figure out a seraphim that can be easily cut up. I chose the sister superior with the helmet. The conversion was actually quite easy. Cut off the sword arm at the cloak and the canoness arm pretty much fits perfect.
For the other hand, the one cocked up, it isn't too difficult to file or sand away the bolt pistol. Then file away the hand from the canoness sprue. Set it in place.
Go here to see a picture of this: <a href="http://www.mmology.org/Images/Sisters08.jpg">Inferno Pistols</a> She is in the back. Sorry the quality is so poor.
For the grand master gray knight there isn't really an option other than conversion or buying the special Stern figure and just calling it a regular grand master. I chose to buy the brother-captain and stern's arms. I'll put those together with a bit of green stuff to differentiate the model. I am actually expecting these parts today so I'll post a picture of the conversion when it is finished.
I hope that helps!
You should be able to make a Grandmaster by suitably converting a SM captain in terminator armour, especially with bits and pieces from the FB EMpire or Brettonian range

Thanks for the hint with the cannones-sprue, didn't know that is an inferno pistol.
My main problem is the psycannon for the inquisitor, haven't found a (viable) solution yet.
Well, coincidentally my next (post-Marines) project is Daemonhunters...
Yes, you can use the Stern model for any Grey Knight Hero character, but even better is bits-ordering a plastic terminator and converting. With a little work, you can make it look very unique, and it's plastic, which (for me, anyway) is by definition better.
As for psycannons, yeah, there really are no plastic models for that, which stinks. You can use the arm off a terminator, but that makes for a bulky left arm, if your model's not supposed to be in termie armour.
Your only other option, then, if you want to use a "real" psycannon, is to cut it from the arm completely, then pin it onto an existing arm. Not a fun or easy task, however, once again, there's no rule that says it has to look EXACTLY like the "official" version -- it just has to be distinctive enough that no one can question what it is.
To that end, you could try using green stuff, which if you're inexperienced with it might SEEM scary, but look at a "real" psycannon. It's not a terribly detailed model to begin with. Make a lump of the stuff look smooth, wrap it around a model's arm, and then all you need is a good-looking muzzle, say, from a heavy bolter or somesuch.
You also might consider a less conventional conversion (yes, I considered a lot of options for my Inquisitor I'm working on). In "Eisenhorn," there's an inquisitor (I think) wearing a shoulder-mounted psycannon. I've seen other converted versions of this that just used a heavy bolter with a shiny, fancy paint job. You might be able to build one of these out of your bits box.
I am certainly a novice when it comes to very big conversions.
I completely agree about using the plastic terminators for it but to me they look completely different from the gray knight armor. I don't think I have the skills to make it look the same.
Although, if you have suggestions on how to do so, that would be great!
Well, I haven't done so yet, but I was considering ordering a few bits from the Inquisitor range to make a psycannon for my Inquisitor (I since gave him Terminator armour, so it doesn't matter now ). Both the Daemonhuntress and Inquisitor Covenant have nifty cannony bits (actually, Covenant has a shoulder-mounted psycannon like Canew mentioned). Now, the scales are different, of course, but I think it would look pretty good on a 40k model even so -- I think it's a little dinky on the Inquisitor line, anyway =).

For the GM, I just use the GKT w/ the tabard that came from the GKT box set. Yes, he's the Brother-Captain, but differentianting between the two is like trying to differentiate between a Reclusiarch and a Master of Sanctity. If you want to get it more detail, get some of the Brass GK/=][= bits from Forge World. Personally I think that one is a better model than Stern's (not a fan of helmetless marines) and, I think the Force Halbred is a cooler idea than the Force Sword. Personally, I don't like the idea of converting off a SM Terminator for a few reason (just my $0.02 however...). First off, I think the GKT model is vastly superior to the SM Terminator one, and secondly, I just enjoy the feel of metal as a finished product better than plastic.
For Hierophants, you could always take one out of the Tomb King Range . Seriously though, the Henchmen blister comes with one or two sutiable candidates, as does the Black Templar Champlain Grimlidus Box (did a small BT army with him as a stand in for a regular champlain). 2 of the 3 Servitors he comes with fit nicely into the =][='s henchmen role. If I remember correctly, only the one with the cross has extensitve Templar Iconograpy on him, but I can recheck on that later. Another good option is the Warrior Priest from Empire carrying a 2 handed hammer.
One way to make an Inquisitor with a Pycannon i the way I made mine:
Get the normal GK with the Psycannon, chop the head of (this is actually alot of fun :-P) get a new head, I peronally used the head from the FW Inquisitor Lock model (looks really nice as is really detailed to fit in with the detailed metal model) -- glue and bend his scarf around the pycannon, then get some Eldar Wings (the large swooping hawk wings, cant remember what the guy is called) and greenstuff them to the back of the model
If I can find my digi camera Ill post a pic and show you what I mean --- it does look really nice once painted in true Ordeo Mallus colours ;-)
