Default Space Wolf Army Theme help. [750]

Hey everyone.
I am looking through various armies codexes in order to finally decide on what army to feild (trust me, I have been through plenty); and I have come to Space Wolves.
If I were to do a Wolves army, I would pick units that give a hard bitten/ veteran feel. Also, I want the army to feel as Norse and Viking like as possible.
What ideas do you guys have? Body swaps, conversions, most importantly, army composition.
Thakns.

Wooden shields from the Warhammer skeleton regiment might be a nice start, and plenty of savage, primitive weapons like stone warhammers and spikey mauls in place of chainswords.

Lots of green stuff fur capes are a good idea, they're also very easy to do.

Hell, if you really wanted to take the Norse iconography perhaps a little too far, you might attach horns to their helmets!

You can use axes, they are nice and choppy and fluffy.

Ah, exellent ideas.
I am thinking of indeed using sheilds, and horns. Maybe a Chaos Marauder Sprue would help?
Anyone with army composition ay 750 points tips keeping in mind fluff?
Thanks

Gorkamorka used to have an axe sprue with various feral looking axes, including a mean looking double headed axe that all my Wolfguard carry. You can still get it from mail order.

I am also in the middle of a squad of Grey Hunters who carry spears in place of chainswords to mark them out from my blood claws and wooden shields on their pistol arm. If you want, the wolf skull from Logan Grimnar looks good on the shields.
