Next army: Highlander Space Marines?

So, I'm thinking of taking a break from the Vostroyans to work on a Space Marine army.  Several possiblities spring to mind.  I have some Grey Knights from several years ago,  I also have a fair number of Space Wolves  -- a couple of squads of Grey Hunters, a squad of Blood Claws, some Terminators, Logan, and Njal.  Some of these are painted in the traditional Shadow Gray/Space Wolves Gray scheme... Meh...

A few years ago, my FLGS had a create your own chapter contest which required painting up a basic trooper in the chapter livery.  My chapter was "The Black Watch" and I did this guy:
Hmm... Scottish mythology does align nicely with the Space Wolves:  Werewolves (Wulfen) are after all a Scottish myth.  You know, I could easily see the guys in the top picture on this page using Space Wolves rules.  Plus doing the Tartan on the loincloths (can't see doing kilts on power armor, loincloths will have to do) and the hackle on top of the helmets will make the army stand out.
