Anthropomorphic Space Marines

So I'm gonna come out of the closet as a furry. Now you will understand the rest of the post. I hope.

I was wondering if anyone has seen anthropomorphic space marines at all. I have been thinking of modeling my own and finding someone who is good at casting molds and make an army of these beasts. I was thinking a genetic mutation in the Space Wolves gene seed produces them or something odd like that.

What do you guys think? Have you seen any? Would you want to see it?

ummmmm I think you need to use a different word other than anthropomorphic. This particular word's defined as putting human characteristics to something that does not have human characteristics. For example, the crazy fucking rabbit that wears a coat and a top hat and walks as a bi-pedal in Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland. Space Marines have human characteristics.
Zoo-morphism is the word you seek for I believe.
If you look around you can find some of the old wulfen of the Space Wolves. I have never seen them painted up but I would think that they would look really quite nice.

You are talking about this right?


I also found these.








and those are freaking cool

Seeing as how Space Marines are generally the poster boys for "Purging Furries" from the world, I doubt you'd find much to that extent.

Also I think he meant having wolf-men in power armor, not space marines with wolf-like features. It's all symantics really, and I believe we all have the general idea.

I don't think this would really work for normal marines seeing as how they're all generally armor clad. Maybe Chaos marines? Too mutated to fit armor normally or something like that.

I love those helmets.....

Well I was thinking of making new legs out of green stuff and tails too. if need be the claws as well. Those helms would work more than great though. I have seen different people use them so I think you can buy them.

Hehe I love the stunted one in the far right there on the bottom.

But I would like to clarify so this doesn't go where i didn't intend I am looking for them to be in power armor.

The wolf helm comes in the basic SW troop pack, I want to say 2 helmets per pack.
