Does anyone know anything about the Hawk Lords chapter?
They're purple, they're a codex chapter and they have the german eagle as their chapter symbol.
I think that's about all the information there is on them.
"You challenge me knowing that I am Xiahou Dun!?"
That's all I knew about them too.
Moved to 40k Fluff Section.
the hawk lords are the guys in the painting section in the codex right?, i think ya should use ultramarine rules for em but there is nothin standin in your way if ya want the scheme with different rules
"take my love, take my land, take me to where i cannot stand, i don't care i'm still free you can't take the sky from meee" ;- firefly
"i'm gonna grant you your greatest wish i'm gonna show you a world without sin" ;- serentiy
"I am a leaf on the wind, watch how i soar" ;- serenity
There is nothing done for them outside of their banner and paint scheme.
They could be a succeser of the ultramarines, but I cannot confirm that.
Alright, now I'm going to create a Hawk Lords chapter. However, this is my first time creating my own 'fluff' so I was wondering if I could get a little bit of help.
"The Hawk Lords were a part of the Emperor’s Children Legion prior to the Horus Heresy. They were founded by a member of the legion who refused to turn on his oaths to the Emperor and become a follower of Slaanesh. Aeneas was an extremely pious marine who rose to the rank of sergeant and was well liked among his brother-marines. When Fulgrim and the rest of the legion became devoted to Chaos, Aeneas and nine of his squad mates fled their homeworld of Chemos. They fled to terra where they remained during the siege of Terra. During the Second Founding, Aeneas was granted his own chapter where he made each of his original squad mates captains of a company."
Does that sound like it's on the right track? Any input would be awesome.
You have to redo that, sorry. When a chapter is founded it is based on the geneseed one one of the other legions/chapters. When the EC turned to Chaos, the corruption would probably reach every soldier and those who didn't turn would be killed. And if any stragglers would reach the Emperor's forces then they to would probably be killed so the risk of taint don't spread.
When I think about their name, Hawk Lords, I think of Raven Guard. I think they would be a successor chapter using the Raven Guard geneseed and share the traits and drawbacks of the Raven Guard as well.
Not to mention any loyalists from the EC, DG, WE, and Sons of Horus, were killed at Istavaan. Well, except those few DG stragglers who managed to escape... Whatever happened to them... :rolleyes: I'm sure they met a happy end...
However, there is alread a paint sheme available for Hawk Lords. Check it out here:
Bottom row, on the left.
Sorry I can't give your fluff on them. To my knowledge there is nothing official about them. Just that they are a part of the myraid of loyalist chapters.
