    Shadow Hawks fluff

    hello all, i was wondering what you all think of of my fluff for my Shadow Hawks space marines:

    well here it goes:

    Fluf:

    The Shadow Hawks are a successor chapter of the Raven Guard.
    Specialised in sabotage, infiltration and assassination, the Hawks live on the planet of Opacus Mundos (means shadowy world in latin), a world which has in its upper atmosphere a fog that does not allow sunlight to penetrate fully, the thermal warmth is capable of penetrating the clouds. This creates world is subjected to a everlasting shade on the dayside and pitch black on the other. People have settled in colonies which can be found as radiant blobs on the planets surface. The Shadow Hawks have situated their Fortress Monastery far away from the cities in an area of inhospitle terrain consisting of rocky outlets. Initiates must locate and reach the Monastery in their own without any major help, to begin their training as a neophyte. The Shadow Hawks train regularly in the dark area’s surrounding their Monastery and are renowned for their navigation and fighting techniques at night.
    Their Chapter Master is Vortar Kelusa. He has led the Hawks through many campaigns and has had perfected the techniques of fighting at night conditions to an unparalleled level.

    They use special “shadow� groups of veterans to sneak up the enemy and cause havoc or to assassinate the enemy leader.
    They make great use of specialised groups of Devastators who have mastered to sneak up the enemy to pick the best fire-location.


    Battle-Cry

    The Shadow Hawks way lies in stealth, so they don’t have a battle-cry as such. They do have a motto which is taught as the foundation of their warfare:

    Caveo per Umbra
    “Beware of the Shadows�

    Combat doctrine
    The standard approach is to start with a raid of a “shadow� group to break enemy morale and eliminate any major threats.
    After this a sudden attack will take place from tactical squads who open wire from a distance and slowly advance. When the enemy is about to engage the Tactical squads devastator and scouts will fire at the enemy confusing them, in this chaos the “shadow� groups and assault squads arrive to finish of the enemy.

    well any critics and sugeestions are welcome

    Very reasonable background material you've developed here. Based on the fluff I can see a couple of possiblities for which traits you've chosen. Which traits did you actually pick? Have developed a color scheme and symbol for them yet?
    Yes, there are female marines and my Sunhawks will let you know in a major way.

    Not all the Emperors Children turned coat. We will redeem our name.
