Default Space Marine DIY chapter ideas... Which you you like best?

Torn between the chapters once more!! Anyways, for one thing, what are the traits? Are they like the Imperial Guard doctrines? And secondly, which of these names do you like better?

Silverbacks- They come from a planet covered by thick steaming jungles, the chapter monestary is located within the high mountains of the world. They recruit from the local primitive humans and use the Crimson Fist/Imperial Fist gene seed.
(Silverback Gorilla-based)

Flaming Kitsunes- They come from a world covered by thick bamboo forests. They recruit from the local villages using tournaments with contestants. They use the Space Wolf gene seed. Their chapter monestary is located out in the wilderness somewhere. (Japanese-based)

Sons of Odin- They come from a world just like Fenris. They are descended from the Space Wolves, using their gene seed. They recruit the same way the Wolves do. Their chapter monestary is located at the top of the mountain the locals call Valhalla. (Space Wolf/Viking-based)


I think I may just go with the kitsunes... Not sure yet though... The Silverbacks are kinda based off a DIY chapter I saw in an old White Dwarf article from the winners of "make your own chapter" contest...

The Sons of Odin are a little too Space Wolf.

I agree, the Kitsunes seem a cool but there a bit to "bamboo-ish". Maybe a mix of the sons of Odin (the names better) and the Kitsunes.

Hmm... Well, the Kitsune's planet is based off Japan and it's surrounding islands, not just bamboo... No it is not based off any anime. lol. What do you mean by combining the kitsunes and the sons of odin?

The Flaming Kitsunes seemed the most interesting to me.
All though, as a Norwegian I'm very attracted to Sons of Odin as well, but I agree with the others that it is a bit too Space Wolves.

Basically, combine the ancient arts of Bushido and turning up drunk out your skull on Mead to sack a coastal village.
