    Just a little idea i have been tossing around in my head.
    Even though Space Wolf geneseed isn't the most preferable for the adeptus terra to use, it is possible that there have been times where the genebanks of the other chapters have been so depleted that the use of space wolf geneseed may have been the only option in the founding of new chapters.
    so i got thinking that, rather than the extended canines be simply the mark of russ, it would rather be that due to the space wolves long association with the wolves of fenris, and the ossophagia implant, that it was more to that that they developed their mutations. later foundings of chapters, who themselves associated themselves with animals of their homeworlds, developed similar mutations in accordance with their totem animals. as in the case of the ice bears, who grew larger and hairier than your average marine, the black spiders, who grew over developed poison glands in their mouths, and the blood hounds, whose senses are even keener than those of the space wolves.

    just something interesting to think about

    I did wonder as to the reason the Space Wolves only split into two Chapters.
    I&#39;ve read Wolves of the Inferno

    Anyone have fluff on the Wolf Brothers?

    I see them as a Chapter with even more Wulfen and perhaps recruit from a Hive World and a Death World?

    I think the reason is no one wants to be big hairy guys with long teeth. They want normal people(marines) and there are all the normal ones to choose form, and i dont think the gene seedd can be depleted.
    Back from a long adventure.
