Ive started building an army using space wolves and converting them to chaos. Customizing wulfen to be chosen, using fenrisian wolves as lesser demons etc. Fluff-wise this should be ok especially considering the Wolf Of Fenris and how a number of space wolves turned against their brothers and joined chaos as well as the fact that all space marines are prone to turning against the Imperium. Thoughts?
That sounds good. Though I would have all of the legion marines be my wulfen. Khornate are mutated to fight, Plague are mutated to be tough. Slaneesh and tzneetch would just be well equipted marines (with enhanced bolters and warp powered forcefields). Wolves as daemons works, and everything else is pretty much lost from the codex. you could use oblitz as mutated terminators. Chosen really are just the fast marines who scout these days. that really isn't a mutation, and possessed typically are only used as paper weights.
thanks man! any other comments?

I don't know much about the Space Wolves other then in the Fluff it seems like there one of the least trusted companies and the Inquisition watches them closely.
Out side of what I know/don't know why would you use the Chaos Codex for them? I heard they have some really sweet rules and war gear. You could just use the Wolves book and add some Chaos iconography to the models, or are you wanting some of the Chaos models like the Defiler. (Defiler was the reason I started a Chaos army)
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
I like the amount of conversion flexibility in a chaos army as well as the different troop choices (like the defiler). I also heard a rumor that space wolves were no longer playable at tournaments but idk if thats true.
Your ideas sound good any chance for progress pics of the conversions.
when i get a good camera...
Next to the grey knights, the space puppies are fast becoming my 2nd favorite marines even over the ultramarines. I can imagine the potentials of a space wolf chaos army. The space wolves are already pretty powerful esp. in cose combat. Combine them with the might of chaos?!?...whoa... I'm drooling at the prospect of a chaos wolf lord with a frost blade daemonweapon. Or a grey hunter pack+wolf guard leader w/3 p-fists, 1 plasma gun, 3 plasma pistols and MoK. Too bad they'll have to be neutered somewhat to make them more balanced.
You could maybe use the fantasy werewolf figures somehow. Maybe mutated wolf guard leaders? They're way cool. I'll post some of my brothers werewolves when I get chance.
thanks man i appreciate it!
That said, I really like the idea, although personally I don't really have any ideas but I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
