Iron Hands

Iron Hands Heresy style

The Iron Hands chapter came to my attention when reading the fantastic Fulgrim novel by Graham McNeal. The story of there steadfast Primarch Ferrus Manus was much to my liking. More or less by accident I painted two minis in their colours using the really good conversion parts of Anvilindustires. Since I was delighted how fast I could paint them I finished 5 Marines. At that time the first FW Iron Hands previews came around - and whuups - I was hooked!

"The Flesh is Weak!"

The Iron Hands are a Loyalist Space Marines Chapter and one of the original First Founding Space Marine Legions created from the geneseed of their martyred Primarch, Ferrus Manus.

Like the other Loyalist Astartes Legions, the Iron Hands would later be divided up after the Horus Heresy into multiple different Chapters, as required by the Codex Astartes, although one Chapter of the original Legion remained known as the Iron Hands and is described below. Although unwavering in their faith in the Emperor of Mankind and his dream of human unity as embodied in the Imperium of Man, the Iron Hands also believe that human flesh is weak and easily corruptible, and strive to replace their organic bodies with more "pure" bionic substitutes, thus closely emulating the faith of the Adeptus Mechanicus' Cult of the Machine.
