Default The Hawk Lords

Is there any REAL fluff on them? I have a friend who made up most of the fluff for them (what planet their from, how they recruit, etc...). But is there?

Forgive my supreme ignorance... but just what the hell is a Hawk Lord?

hmm i think that most of those marine chapters were sent in by one player than done up by a gw hired painter so unless a hawk lords player shows up i think you can run wild

Yeah it's probably just one of those chapters that they made up and haven't really fleshed out yet. I reckon they probably made it to the codex because they were something fresh and hadn't already been seen eleventy-billion times

except for the cheesy yellow and the symbol those are soul drinkers (the yellow is generally reprasentataive of gold in the dated color schemese i.e the Ultra marines compare the 3rd edition and 4th edition codex color schemes.) since to hawk lords appear in the 3rd edition codex as well one must assume that thier yellow is also reprasentitive of gold, and also at the time of the third edition codex the Soul drinkers hadn't traitored yet so that chapter is almost exactly the same as the soul drinkers

All the tau have to worrie about is going off course, not having their souls eaten and their bodies being worn as a tuxedo to a slaughter-party

"And we shall know fear!"-honored battle cry of the SMs also known as Sissy Marines. The chapter was later declared Worthless Extrimis after crying when shot at by Orks in the chapters first engagment. In the AER (After Execution Review) Inquistor Exter said "It was just breaking my heart to see those grown marines cry."

Hawk Lords? Bah, more like Emperor's Children Wannabe's. :P

Seriously, there isn't any set fluff on them, I guess you can just make fluff up about them. And use the Trait system etc...
