greatings from a Spacewolf player

Hello this is fenryka I'm farley new to Heresy online I have been playing Spacewolfs for a wile now and I was thinking about starting a new Space Marine army called the ShadowHounds they are simular to the Space Wolfs in ther Iconrie and fighting stile and Rites of Initaion of there members but that is were the simularite the Space wolfs ends. Becouse the ShadowHounds come from a Home World thats farther out from there sun then the World of Fenris is so that it is in a state of perpetchul twlight so they are more adapted to fighting in low light condestions. But i'm haveing a hard time trying to figer out just how about how to do it.

Any Feed back on this would be Greatley excepted

And PS sorry about any Spelling Mistakes that I might have made in wrighting this

Welcome to the Boards of Heresy. Your new chapter sounds pretty sweet. Have you decided on a paint scheme for them?

Welcome again and happy gaming

Firstly, welcome to Heresy Online.

Now, onto your new Space Marine chapter. Considering the background you've come up with here are the suggestions that immediately come to my mind. Since your chapter comes from a world that suffers from lowlight conditions. I'm thinking they'd want to have a dark color scheme so as to blend in and not reveal their positions. I'd look into a dark gray or even a dark blue main color. I'd stay away from black simply because the Raven Guard and the Black Templars are painted as such, as is the Death Company from the Blood Angels.

As for the skin tone, I'd think they'd look rather palid and pale. Another thing to take into consideration is how they've adapted and naturally muted to accomodate their environment. I'd think they'd have extremely dilated pupils to allow more light to filter in. Even though they are geneticly altered super beings. Dark hair would also probably be the norm for them. Their homeworld would probably be VERY cold given it's distance from the sun so it would also stand to reason that they'd be a very hardy, stout race with thick beards and hair [ perfect since you want a space Wolves type army ].

So what it sounds like to me is to paint them up like a stereotypical vampire would look pale skin with big black eyes and dark hair. Dress them in shades of gray much like the Carcharadons space marine chapter but use the space wolf kits.

I hope that helps give you ideas,


God created Firemen so Cops would have heroes.

Welcome to the boards. Always nice to have more wolf brothers.

One question though. If you're planning a new SM army, why have it so similar to a SW one? I was recently contemplating a new army, and any SM chapter I thought about was as different in style and colour as could be.
