2nd Company Tactical Marine. Chapter Name: Botherhood of Steel; Founding: 23rd “Sentinel” Founding; Founding Chapter: Iron Hands. Looking for fellow Iron Hands brethren. I’m building my IH army and would love to track down the Iron Hands info offered in the Index Astartes III. A further departure from the doctrines of the Codex Astartes is the lack of Chaplains. The Iron Hands suffered terrible losses at the hands of the Traitor Marines.

Asirnoth, the great silver wyrm of legend, had returned. The Iron-Fathers of the Chapter as a whole routinely scar their bodies in reverence to him, and they uniformly aspire to his technical brilliance and insight.

Index Astartes: Brotherhood of Steel – + LIBER ASTARTES + – The Bolter and Chainsword

Some adepts of the Mechanicum attempted to board the ruins in orbit and explore them, driven by the lure of ancient technology. Seriously, Horus thought that just sending Fulgrim talk to Ferrus would be jndex to convince him to betray the Emperor. While many believe that the head of the Iron Hands Primarch was presented to Horus by Fulgrim after he was slain, other tales claim imdex it and the rest of his remains were given as a gift to, or perhaps stolen by, agents of the Dark Mechanicum with the goal of creating their own fearful Legion of twisted Astartes from his genetic makeup.

Nearly a third of the Iron Council had fallen into the Daemon’s trap and been lost to Chaotic corruption, along with many of their Battle-Brothers. He and the Veterans joined with six other Legions in the planetary assault. The Iron Fathers of the council had determined that it was the human race itself that was to blame for the Heresy.

However, when the Iron Hands arrived within the system of Handx, they quickly found out that something terrible had happened during their absence. He stood at the jands entrance with his favoured sons, preventing the defenders from regrouping and striking at the back of Roboute’s group. He also receives various visions from his Dark God, which have caused his status among the devotees of Nurgle to soar ever since the days of the Heresy.


The Sapphire King judged the Iron Hands ripe to fall and set its trap in motion. The other Clans sent their young aspirants to study under this great master, and the entire Chapter benefited from his expertise.

Sacrifices, he taught the population of the world, were inevitable on the road of progress, and while they should not be glorified, they shouldn’t be unduly mourned either.

After the Forgotten War, the Iron Hands journeyed to the Eye of Terror, driven by their Primarch’s visions of a world within its confines where they would be safe from the retribution of the Imperium.

However, once his fleet left the zone of the Warp turbulences that prevented communication, his Legion discovered the parting gift of the daemons of Nurgle they had faced. An exact datation of the uprising is impossible, but it is estimated that the machines rose about the time the first bombs fell upon Isstvan III.

Because of his failure — because of his weakness. For long solar months, the Iron Hands’ Strike Cruisers hung in space, silent sentinels watching for any who might attempt to flee ahead of the Wasting and thus endanger the Forge World or its output. The center of the world’s governance fell into corruption, cultists slowly rising to positions of influence and subtly sabotaging the system’s defences.

He was able to craft strange and powerful tools and objects out of metal, shaping them with his living metal hands without even the need for a hammer or forge. Ironically, the Tenth Legion is perhaps the one of the Traitor Legions with indez most Apothecaries left in its ranks, and they take their duties very seriously.

They thus prefer solid-state weapons Bolts, Slugs, Missiles, etc. The news of Horus’ treachery was met with an outrage by the Iron Hands and their Primarch alike. The Corroded Souls Among all those lost to the Dark Gods, it is the Tenth Legion’s sons who most clearly bear the mark of their corruption upon their bodies.

Add to watch list. Though their intellect is limited, the Unchosen can be directed on the battlefield, and their presence is often a sign that things are about to go wrong for whoever stands against the Tenth Legion this day.

Parathen is now a daemon world, populated by the diseased descendants of its original population and upon which hundreds of thousands of daemons walk. It was to be more like the techno-barbarian states Terra used to have, but I was unfortunately forced to rush through that bit. According to visions from Thousand Sons seers and other psykers, the whole planet is covered in a pestilent jungle.

He never sought to end the conflicts between the clans, seeing such competition as healthy and strengthening. Aggravating their peril was the absence of their Primarch, who had vanished in the first moments of the daemonic incursion. A few centuries more and the warrior’s biological body might consist of little more than his brain and his major internal organs. It is said that this apparition spoke of his fears for Mankind. But all the others, led by Ferrus himself, descended on Terra with a determination born of a growing sense of despair.

Horus was aware of the location of the Loyalists’ chosen drop site and his troops fell upon the Loyalist Legions. Rising from his throne, Stronos unplugged himself and addressed his brothers with his unalloyed, natural voice.

Iron Hands

Anything else is nothing more than self-delusion. His goals are unknown, though there are rumors he seeks a world within the Eye of Terror known as the Crucible. These formations were referred to as Orders and were superficially equivalent to astaartes specialised battalion in general Legiones Astartes terms, but far more concrete in makeup idnex isolated in operation. As they had feared, the majority of the fleet arrived too late to take part in the attack, and it was with dread and horror that they learnt of the disastrous treachery that had greeted their Primarch’s attack.
