Wolf scouts (or Hawk scouts) have a great ability called 'Operate behind enemy lines'. It allows your scouts to enter play as reserves...but from your opponent's deployment zone! Imagine his horror when your cheap-as-chips five man scout squad pops out next to his basilisks, intent on mayhem, with a handful of meltabombs and a bad attitude. Bwhahahaha! >

With a name like the 'Hawks', they sound fast and agile and a hawk has certain 'tribal' associations so I suggest the White Scars' gene seed.

Jaghatai.

As for 'fast tactics', the white scars have got a lot of special rules concerning such tactics; they're representitive of Genghis Khan's legions and so quite heavily feature mounted warriors.

Alternatively, you could use the Raven Guard's gene-seed. It's not as stable as the White Scars, nor does it breed warriors of such natural aggression, but it does result in the whitening of a marine's skin and the darkening of his eyes until they are as coal. It might be quite cool to have an army of Marines with eerie pale skin and cold, black, sinister eyes.

The Alpha Legion's gene-seed was known to be mutated even before their decent into chaos...perhaps there's potential there for a really unique chapter-wide mutation (wings spring to mind, given the chapter's name)?

But I thought you'd settled on the Space Wolves? Shouldn't you be designing a successor chapter if you want to use their special rules? Also, if you like the name 'Hawks' might I suggest calling them the 'Warhawks'? Two cyllables works better than one for a marine chapter.

Speaking of wings on marines, I was going to make a Fallen Dark Angel's army with black angel wings on all their backs. Problem is I can't find any dang angel wings...

this works great against imperial guard. give the scouts an Mlauncher, and deploy them behind the lines. Leman russ goes down on a 3+, its a real kick in the canutos.
