THE IRON GUARD
During the horus heresy The Iron guard and many other Chapters, who were most loyal, were assigned to guarding the emperor himself.
The Iron Guard worked with the Novamarines on terra settin a massive fortified defense around the Palace itself to protect the emperor from the enevatable firefight that was going to happen near or inside the palace itself.
Many months passed and the battle raged on outside the Palace. The Iron Guard stood there ground but one cold foggy morning the siege experts (Iron Warriors) Blasted a huge chunk out of the wall of the palace perimeter and thats when Warmaster Horus made his move into the Palace accompaind by his command they battled there way through the Iron Guard company but horus met Salgus Ironhand (primarch of the Iron Guard) and him and horus Struck blows outside the emperors own chamber.
Meanwhile the fight was already won outside the masses of Chaos marines had been chased of the planet those most eager to chase were the Iron Guard who chased the Iron warriors into the eye of terror.
Horus defeated Salgus easily and moved towards his prey........ the emperor........
After the Horus Heresy the Iron Guard were thought lost in action after having chased the Chaos Marines into the Eye. but years later during the rising of Abaddon and the Traitor Legions again. The Iron guard were seen at many of the battles at the Eye of Terror. The Iron Guard seemed to appear whereever the Iron Warrior Traitor legion did. And quite fantastically beet them as well. It was like the Chapter had Adapted to fighting against the siege experts.
but after learning that Cadia had already fallen to the traitors the Iron Guard thought they would be no point in carrying on and pulled out of the confrontation. After the Eye of Terror the Inquisitation thought the Iron Guard had Been Traitorous and had decided to exterminatus the whole chapter. Of course when the Iron Guard heard of this they pleaded to the Inquisitation hoping that they would soon come to there senses. But it didnt happen! the Inqusitation were nearly dispatched but they were stopped before they could leave.
Instead Force Commander Falken Ironhand, son of Salgus was summoned to the emperor himself. The emperor and Falken talked intentavly for a long time about why the chapter had disengaged from the eye of terror. And now the Iron Guard Chapter are on a Quest. A quest to regain the trust of the emperor and they wish that 1 day it will happen.
(Y) (N) you decide.

This hurts me more then it hurts you...first of the Novamarines are a sucessor chapter,wich didn't exist untill after the Heresy,secondly Horus never once left the battle barge and therefore never came anywhere near the Imperial palace,it was the Emporer that telported up to Horus's barge and killed him in hand to hand combat in order to end the siege.Once Horus was killed in the fight against the Emporer the Chaos liegons gave up and went home,but only after Horus was killed.Another problem you run into is that the Iron Warriors already have a siege specialist arch-nemesis...the Imperial Fists. Lastly that bit about the Inquisition is believable enough..but the part about the chapter master not only reaching terra (the most heavily guarded planet in the universe) but then conversing with the Emporer (who ever since the Heresy has been a glowing vegetable in a giant golden chair) just simply isn't possible.Another thing I might look at changing is the fact that the chapter master is the Primarch's son.It's debatable wether or not the Primarchs could have kids,but the general consensus is that they couldn't so you may just want to edit that a bit.
Otherwise it's a nice start and I commend the good solid effort you probably put forth..maybe next time you could do a bit more research into the pre-existing fluff though.Don't get discouraged..keep trying you'll get it. ^_^
Yeah your fluff is rather not built on a good foundation... meaning that the only way that you can state that they existed before the horus hersey is a company chapter that was left to die on some backwater planet...............

I suggest something like this:
The Iron Guard, a divison of the Imperial Fists, were defending the Imperial Palace during the Horus Heresy. When the accursed Iron Warriors broke through the outter walls, and men starting pouring in through the opened breach, the Iron Guard held there ground. There, their great leader, Salgus Ironhand (not a Primarch), led his men for the final defence. Wave after wave of the enemy poured against the defenders, but still they held. They filled the breach with the corpses of their dead enemies, but finally Salgus was cut down, weakened by a battle with a mighty deamon of Slaanesh. His men, fearing nothing, gritted their teeth, and fought back with more courage and fury than ever before.
And then, the Emperor defeated Horus on his battlebarge. The Traitor Legions, sensing their impending defeat, fled. At their heels, the Iron Guard followed, cutting down the traitors wherever they found them. They took up their ships, and followed their hated brothers to the very edges of the Eye of Terror. Here, they launched raid after raid against their most hated enemies, the Iron Warriors. The Imperium thought they had lost them in the fighting outside the Palace, but it was not so...
Years later, drained of men and munitions, the Iron Guard returned back into the Imperium. Thinking they had become traitors, the High Lords of Terra ordered that the Exterminatus should be called down upon them. Their lord, Falken Ironhand, pleaded that he might talk to the High Lords, telling them of their past, and hoping to convince them that they were still loyal.
The High Lords granted him free passage, and in their huge courts, he told them their story. And they we forgiven, and taken back into the fold. However, the Legat of the Inquisition trusts them not, and, in an attempt to show their faith to the Emperor, they are on a Quest...
Something like that. Its far more believable...
