Death Wing Knights and Conversion Possibilities

Looking at the new images of the Death Wing terminators all over the place today, I'm particularly struck by how straight forward they would be to convert (seduce?) to the dark side.  Take for instance the Death Wing Knights.  The hooded robes adorning their armour create a sinister visage without really trying.  The Unforgiven chapter is primed for a Fallen Chapter in my opinion.

Consider the image above of a Death Wing Knight.  Now do some imagining: the base colour black instead of bleached bone (i.e. back to the original Dark Angels colours that Luther and colleagues would still be wearing).  Swap out the storm shield for a shield from warhammer fantasy chaos knights.  Replace a should pad or two with chaos space marine analogues.  And add a trophy rack or two (or even a havoc launcher as a counts-as cyclone missile launcher).  The conversion would be very simple and wouldn't need to scrub too much imperial symbology out.  Very tempting!

I play Deathwing counts as Relictors (post-decimation by the Grey Knights). Super excited for this release.

I plan on buying these and using them as either Word Bearers or Alpha Legion

I actually use a cut in half havoc launcher for my fallen deathwing, although I currently have them painted in Death Guard colors because they were hiding among the chaos marines. I'd actually say buy some of the alternate shoulder pads out there that look like cataphracti pads and use those in place of the DW ones, thus looking properly equipped in heresy era armor.
