Topic Can't transmog a Mace with a Mace....

But that is the reason. "Main Hand" can't be put on "One Hand" weapons, due to some Main Hand weapons looking wrong when put in an off-hand as One Hand weapons can, so Main Hand must remain Main Hand.
• Main hand weapons can only be used to transmogrify Main hand weapons.

dumb or not, it is what it is.
...and as Sealan said, an item needs to have stats.
Transmog isn't a free-for-all, restrictions apply, and currently, we have to deal with those restrictions.
There are other weapons with the same appearance which are available to you:
Mace of the Violet Guardian
Iron Flanged Scepter (random enchantment)
Nerubian Mace (random enchantment)
Some of these have slight colour variations, but they all look the same.
