Well instead of doing Crimson fists since I didn't really like their traits, I am in the process of creating my own Chapter. I have a few of the basics down and a color scheme as well.
Here is the color scheme- http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n...igs/Arktos.jpg
Some fluff so far, not much
Founding Chapter- Space Wolves
Chapter Master- Ursus
Lost Weapons of Martimus- Paws of Helarcros( Power fists with dual bolters on each, small claws extending from each finger)
First Captain- Thibetanus
How does it look? Anything else i should add to that besides some fluff and customs etc?
Also, if I am doing a DIY chapter should i go with a command squad or a chappy with jump pack and assault marines?

Only first founding chapters have Primarchs and seeing as their founding chapter is Space Wolves I'm assuming they aren't a first founding chapter.
The Ten Dimensions

Doh stupid me . Yeah i'll fix that heh. But I'm having a hard time deciding over the chaplain and assault marines or a command squad and chapter Master. Any ideas?
Dual bolters on powerfists? Seems kinda iffy if you ask me- and a little generic (read- Calgar). Why not something new, like a power flail? Perhaps a powerclaw with flamers on it? I don't mean to rain on your parade, but these just sound like Gauntlets of Ultramar with some whistles and bells- or bells and whistles.
Otherwise sounds good, nice scheme, add a bit of fluff and customs and you should be good to go.
Edit: Post 420, you know what that means! Actually you might, I don't really, drugs ain't my dig.
Slight problem... the SW geneseed isn't used any more. They only had the Wolf Brothers chapter at the Second Founding, as Russ didn't particularly want to split his legion anyway and they were a small legion to start with. And the Wolf Brothers were destroyed almost to a man. Enough to shut down the chapter anyway, and I have a feeling it was something to do with the canis helix. So there haven't been any chapters made since with SW geneseed.
Alrighty then, I'll think of another founding chapter. Oh btw do you have any pics of a power flail or what it would look like? I know what a regular flail looks like but a power one would have to be bigger
The Wolf Brothers are the only known chapter to use SW geneseed and they did have major problems.
That said there's nothing to say that other attempts haven't taken place that may have been more successful and less publicized. It all depends on how much you want to make the fluff nazis happy. There are some things I'm fussy about in regards to fluff and others that I'm less so. It all boils down to whether you want to keep hearing the mantra "It can't happen; it's against the fluff" when you talk about them online. It's your army and if your local group doesn't have a problem with it, go for it. If you want to try and make everyone online happy with it, you need to change because this idea is right up there with female marines, loyalist traitors, and geneseed blending in regards to how much it will set off some people. (and I'm happily guilty of two of the three )
Yes, there are female marines and my Sunhawks will let you know in a major way.
Not all the Emperors Children turned coat. We will redeem our name.
Yeah I will have to look at the chapters out their atm and see what i can do, for now, I have come up with these traits, Trust your Battle Brothers, Aspire to Glory, and Death Before Dishonour. How does that look?
