I'm creating a new space marine list at the moment based off my own chapter fluff, their called the WILD DOGS and are raised from the FOX archipelago of islands on a death world.

For their leader I want a captain who is aging, was once a great Marine but then took retirement sort of thing, then comes back for a final mission as all his old buddies need his skills on a crusade. He's an expert at combat and stealth.

The company he leads will be based more around stealth, so i want them to be a drab sort of blue colour, with their body armour filed down so it looks more like a sort of 'sneaking' type of suit. They will be armed with a variety of weapons from different races because they take their weapon from dead enemies and use them.

I want them to be a bit rough around the edges, so I'm going to model some of them smoking, which isn't really in keeping with the mainstream fluff but will look cool.

What I need for them is a quest, some sort of goal for a crusade. I don't really want to use the generic nids/chaos/orks threats, does anyone have any ORIGINAL ideas on what they could focus a crusade on?

Well, not really that unique, but you could have the crusade being penitent crusade for using Xenos weapons/technology.

Maybe your chapter can be a fleet based chapter, which was sent on a death oath to redeem themselves after they were involved in an incident that other chapters didn't agree with, and instead being executed they have their chance for redemption by crusading against something.

An urgent mission against 7 Human Systems recently rediscovered//that for the past 300 years have been out of contact and have formed thier own state..

they're advances in tech they have made. make them able to destory and take over several other systems and in the area.. so a they must be stopped within i nthe next 11months.. before they are able to launch thier large attack..

would involve plunging into heavy armed systems tho having to win and move on quickly .. to get to the core world where the superweapons/main attack force is preparing

How about having them as a company of Marines seconded to a Rogue Trader's expedition? Sent off into the wild black yonder to spread the Emperor's light amongst the aliens and heathens.

You could even add Daemonhunter or Witch Hunter allies to represent the Rogue Trader and other parts of his retinue, too.

That sounds suspiciously Metal Gear Solid...

An Old veteran who specialises in stealth and has combat skills? On a final mission? Smokes regularly? Sounds like Old Snake... A blue, sneaking-suit wearing group? Sounds like lots of Solid Snakes.
Fox islands? (Fox-Hound)

Hmm... Lets think of a plot-hook..

Your Captain needs to go to an isolated military base on a snow-death world which has been taken over by short-sighted, tunnel-visioned traitorguard/chaos marines. Their leader is a twin to your commander, only with longer and blonder hair, and has an english accent.
They're making demands against the Imperium and have several special-ops with unique abilities. One of which is a moustache-twirling revolver user who claims to be Russian (but with an american accent).

It turns out they've stolen a nuke-launching Titan (Gear-Pattern: Rex). It's your captains mission to stop these terrorists, and save that ginger battle sister who's all messed up and loves him... Also the Adeptus Mechanicus Techi that made the Titan is a pretty cool guy who's into anime, and eventually becomes best buds with your Captain.

maybe dark eldar or necron threat??? LOL

i like the style, to represent the guys shooting with xeno weapons you could use sterguard with the different special issue ammo.

Stealth marines, remember me the use of blood ravens in 4th SM dex with lots of infiltration.

could be a chapter that support some rogue traders operations.
