The Iron Hounds are an Ultramarines Successor Chapter.[1b]


The Chapter hails from the planet Orinus in the Ultima Segmentum[1a] and the legends of their history date back to the Fourth Founding. The Iron Hounds have always been firm allies of their Ultramarines Founding Chapter and they have pledged warriors to the cause of Ultramar on countless occasions. They have become renowned for their relentlessness and are ruthless warriors who pursue their enemies until every last foe has been slain.[1b]

During the Psychic Awakening, the Ordo Xenos requested that the Iron Hounds, Rift Cobras and the Templars of the Covenant Chapters attack the Ork infested Kebban Sub-sector. The Xenos were at war with each other at that time and the Ordo sought their destruction before a Warlord rose to unite the Orks[2]. They also aided the Ultramarines in the Third War for Damnos[1c] and later fought the forces of Nurgle in the Scourge Stars. However, it is now believed the Iron Hounds may have been destroyed, while defending the Imperial worlds located within that blighted region.[3]
