I know that when you ally Space Marines with Daemonhunters they lose all chapter traits, but I'm going for fluff more than rules. I'm going to be using a radical inquisitor, so it'll be him, the daemonhosts, and a host of assassins. Going off of fluff, I'm thinking of including a Flesh Tearers army with them, as they all seem to be on the border of going insane. I've also looked at Legion of the Damned, but I'm not sure of their fluff. Any other chapters that would fit better?

Sorry, but you can't use CSM as allies. Radical or not, your inquisitor is still imperial and as such can only be allied with other imperial armies. You could, however, make up a chapter of your own and give them a history bordering on the edge of heresy or something.
1500 years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the Universe
500 years ago everybody knew the world was flat
5 minutes ago you knew humans were alone on the planet
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow
Sorry Phoenix, but Flesh Tearers and Legion of the Damend are both loyalist Chapters (I think the Flesh Tearers are very close to being excommunicated but haven't yet). They're weird, certainly, but not Chaos Space Marines.
The Relictors are a chapter that's basically turned renegade (I even think the Inquisition excommunicated them recently, but I may be wrong). They seek out Daemonic artifacts to harness and use against Chaos itself.
I'm not sure they've been excommunicated yet (at least it doesn't say so in their Index Astartes entry), but they'd make great allies for a radical Daemonhunter!Originally Posted by mEGALOMANIAC
Damn, I was going to say that. If you're Radical, use Relictors as allies (perfect rules and fluff). If you're Puritan, don't use SM allies, cuz its a waste.
A man's at odds to know his mind, for his mind is aught he has to know it with.
I was going to use Relictors, but then I aside from the Daemonhunters codex and SM codex, I'd also have to carry around a White Dwarf and a Chaos codex, and I didn't want to have an army that relies on 4 books just to get all the rules.
Nothing to stop you using regular SM rules to represent a chapter of CSM who have recently turned. Getting mutated and being gifted with powers etc would probably take centuries of chaos service. Your chapter could have turned last year and are not yet mutated in body, just in spirit. they could even still look exactly like ordinary marines. That way you could effectively have a Chaos inquisition army, which would be cool.
Relictors do look like normal Marines because they are normal Marines! They don't worship Chaos at all, and in fact abhor it. They simply believe that Chaos weapons can, with proper training, be used to combat Chaos. They haven't been Excommunicated yet.
And Justinic, you needn't use the rules found in their Index Astartes entry (they're 3rd Edition anyway). You could use them as regular Marines and simply treat the Chaos weapons and standards as (master-crafted) power weapons and sacred standards, respectively.
