The Iron Hawks is a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter from an unknown Founding and a successor of the Ultramarines.

The Iron Hawks are blessed with pure and complete gene-seed, though they're currently recovering from heavy losses after a particularly long and gruelling campaign.

Despite being strict adherents to the Codex Astartes, they've garnered a reputation for the brutal effectiveness of their high-speed assaults aboard Thunderhawk gunships.

The Iron Hawks revere their Primarch Roboute Guilliman above all others -- save the Emperor -- and they loathe those who have turned their backs on the Imperium.

The Iron Hawks' Chapter planet is called Stormfall and it is located in the portion of the Ultima Segmentum on the far side of the Great Rift in the Imperium Nihilus.

Chapter Appearance

Chapter Colours

The Iron Hawks primarily wear metallic dark grey power armour. The pauldrons are black, while the shoulder plate trim is metallic dark grey. Most strikingly, the helm's faceplate is stark white.

The red squad tactical specialty symbol -- battleline, close support, fire support, Veteran or command -- is located on the right shoulder plate.

A white Low Gothic numeral is stenciled on the centre of the squad specialty symbol, which indicates squad number.

The colour of the Aquila or Imperialis on the chest guard indicates company number in accordance with the Codex Astartes -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company), Green (4th Company), etc.

Chapter Badge
