Space Marines: The Hand of Death

Here is my Space Marine army, The Hand of Death! They are the sworn enemies of the Ultramarines. Although they are painted like the ultramarines, it is because that way they can infiltrate Ultramarines units and eliminate.

HISTORY:

The Hand of Deathare not very well known. They have been fighting the Ultramarines for years now, though and are feared by them more than any Tyranid army. They have been fighting with the Black Death army because it was in a time of need. The Hand of Death had just completley annilihated 3 Ultramarine armies. Then in their escape from the planet, they were ambushed by a huge Tyranid army, the Bloodhounds. Already weakened they fought a desparate battle, while retreaing. Pursuing the Tyranids, though was the Black Death. They saved the Hand of Death barely in time. Wanting revenge the Hand of Death and Black Death attacked the hive planet, but on their way there, they were blown out of the sky by the Ulthwe "The DAMNED" Eldar. Shipwrecked on the planet, they realised it had already been taken over by Tyranids, it was a trap set up by the Bloodhounds/Ulthwe. The Hand of Death love close combat, and it is reflected in their Veteran Sergeants and Force Commander. Soon all Tactical Squads will have Rhinos/Razorbacks.

PERSONNEL

Chaplain "Father" Mulcahy:The Chaplain has a long history with the Hand of Death. He knew Marneus Calgar personally, and was betrayed by him, hence his joining of the Hand of Death.

Force Commander Colonel Potter:Colonel Potter was a lowly corporal in the ranks, until he was promoted to leader. After facing almost a whole Warrior Squad (Bloodhounds) with only his Command Squad to back him up, he was promoted to Force Commander and now leads the Chapter.

Veteran Sergeant Hawkeye: Sergeant of Colonel Potter's Command Squad, he also kicked ASS against the warriors, all things considered.

Veteran Assualt Marine Sergeant Trapper John:This sergeant is very much celebrated, and Colonel Potter wanted to promote him to Force Commander Rank, but he refused. He slew a Tyranid HIVE TYRANT single-handedly. He killed its last 2 wounds.

Veteran Biker Sergeant Honeycutt:Possesing a great tactical mind, he has gotten the Bike Squad into positions that has saved the rest of the army.
