Origins of the Storm Hands
It is the 38th millennia, an age of strife and conquest. The Iron Hands of Medusa, under the spiritual guidance of Ferrus Manus bring many worlds under compliance in the name of Imperial Truth. One such world is the planet Aggrekus, an almost forgotten terran colony from ages past. Once brought into compliance, the inhabitants embraced the Emperor and all that is the Imperial truth, bringing their own unique traits to the Emperors arsenal of unforgiving warriors.

Home world
Aggrekus, a planet ravaged by electrical storms and intolerable conditions due to the terraforming missions from millennia past, has forged a people of strong resilience toward anything placed to them. Through the ages, the Aggrekan people mustard the ability to control these storms and harnessing the storms power in their technology. This constantly replenished power source gives the Storm Hands their ability to shake worlds to their very core. Manipulating the tectonic plates of worlds to literally shake an enemy into submission, before even setting foot onto the battle field.

Combat Doctrine
After millennia of bio-engineering and the compliance of Aggrekus at the hands of the Iron Hands, the adopted battle doctrine of the Storm Hands follow a similar path. Heavily supported by the Adeptus Mechanicus, allows them to be one of the best equipped forces in the Imperium. Not only from orbital bombardment, but also from a full scale mechanised assault. Like the Iron Hands, the Storm Hands are led by clan Fathers, also known as Storm Fathers, a blending of both Chaplain and Tech Marine, augmented with extensive bio-mechanoid engineering. Specialist squads are led by veterans in Terminator amour in close combat situations. Their weapons of choice, Power Claws/swords/axes and combi-bolters. Should the need arise; orbital bombardment of seismic weaponry can be deployed to de-motivate and devastate an enemies defences before a full scale spear-tip attack.

Geneseed
After millennia of bio-engineering and the introduction of the Ferrus Manus’s geneseed into the Aggrekan populas, a formidable force was created to which Ferrus himself would be proud to call his own. Though this comes with similar traits as the Iron Hands. An almost compulsive obsession with the mechanicum and a hatred of weakness in apparent in all that his human flesh. Seeking perfection in the understanding of Omnissaiah through the use of bionic and augmentation of the human body. This is optimised with the Storm Fathers with their appearance of being more machine than human flesh. Assimilating other worldly technology into their own.

Interactions within the Legio
When not in the heat of the battle field, the Storm Hands usually keep to themselves. Striving to seek a better understanding and ability to harness the ravage storms of their home world and implement them on those whole oppose the Imperial truth. They are recognised within the Adept Astartes, along with the Iron Hand, as being some of the best Tech Marines in the Imperium.

Nice all together. Here come the but's:

I don't like the phrase ' After millennia of bio-engineering' and it's overuse!

I don't understand why they want to stay to themselves when not in battle. This means no rituals all together, no prayers, no training, and even, not eating together?

Apart from that points I like what I see and I can say that you have made a very nice use of the English grammar and words! 8Y

the section about them keeping to themselve, came from a army fluff section on the Iron Hands. I guess that there would be a certain level of solitude for self reflection, but other than that, I see no reason why they cant have rituals, fine points still need to be worked out though.

Glad you liked!!

Cheers!!
