Default Ideas for a Vampire themed Space Marine squad

I watched Underworld and Underworld evolution recently and it's made me want to create a Space Marine chapter based on vampires (the aloof sort, not the ravenous Blood Angel sort). While I know it'd be foolish to start a whole other chapter in addition to my Fists, perhaps I could create a detachment of loyalist Imperial Fist Space Marines who's geneseed has been mutated to give them certain vampiric traits? Obviously, the Imperial Fist geneseed is extremely stable and has shown no signs of mutation so I'd have to devise a reason to explain this mutation. Could I say they're veterans who have recently returned from an independant mission to slay a choas sorcerer? If their geneseed has mutated that much, they must surely be under the judgmental gaze of the inquisition. Would it be too much to say that they are concealed and protected from the Inquisition by their chapter in honour of their accomplishments and sacrifices?

What about the 'Vampires' themselves? If I was to go ahead and make them, what kind of rules should they have? And how could I reflect their innate vampirism in their appearance?
