The Hawk Lords are a Codex Chapter of Space Marines.


The Hawk Lords eschew Drop Pods in favour of Thunderhawk Gunships for low-altitude insertion. They are the undisputed masters of such tactics and it is not unknown for Thunderhawk pilots of other chapters to hone their skills on temporary service as part of a Hawk Lords Talon Wing.[1a] The Hawk Lords also often use their Stormtalon Gunships as attack units, fielding entire squadrons of these manoeuvrable and fast aircraft to strike enemy positions deep behind the main front lines.[7]

The Hawk Lords are also responsible for the creation of Hawk Wings, masterfully-crafted jump packs capable of bearing even a Devastator Marine into battle without costing him the use of his heavier armament.[11]

  • According to The Horus Heresy Book Five - Tempest[9], the 21st Chapter of the Ultramarines Legion was known for the skill of its pilots and dubbed The Hawks.[9] The 4th and 22nd Chapters of the Ultramarines Legion were known as the Aurorans and the Nemesis respectively, and went on to become the Aurora Chapter and the Nemesis Chapter during the Second Founding. It is thus possible the Hawk Lords are a Successor Chapter descended from the 21st Chapter of the Ultramarines Legion, taking their name from The Hawks.
