"Hear the call of Gjallarhorn! It is your doom!"
―Battle Cry

The Iron Brotherhood (Ferrum Fraternitati in high gothic) are a crusading chapter, spending years at war, only to return home and celebrate with tales of conquest, and battles won. Counting themselves amongst the sons of Dorn, they lack some of their sombre, stern traits, replacing it instead with a joy for combat that they wear upon their sleeve. Like their progenitors, they place great focus on martial skill, and are renowned for having iron-wills, strong discipline, and being stubborn in battle. They are known as both crusaders, and heroes, placing greater focus on protecting the citizenry of the Empire, more than most other Chapters.


The Iron Brotherhood hail from the world of Veles. Once, Veles was the glittering crown of the sector, being a juggernaut of manufacturing, a place of great philosophy, and never faltered in their dedication to the Emperor. It suffered greatly at the hands of WAAAAAAAGH! Brokentoof, being besieged for years, before the Imperial Fists lifted the siege, and broke the WAAAAAAGH!, but not before it had laid most of the planet to waste.

The Imperial Fists established an outpost here, though were not in sufficient numbers to help rebuild the damaged infrastructure of the planet. This garrison became the basis of the Brotherhood during the 6th founding.

Veles has scattered, walled settlements, usually built upon the ruins of cities ruined by Orkish invasions. These serve as vital recruiting locations, not just for the Brotherhood, but for their auxiliaries that support them. The largest settlement is Erimor, which rests in the shadow of the Watchtower, the Fortress Monastery of the Brotherhood. They also have other outposts, mostly small shrines, or installations.

The Watchtower is the Chapter's fortress monastery, built on an ancient Imperial Fists outpost, the Fortress is a tall, foreboding structure. It lacks some of the pomp of other Imperial Structures, lacking decoration, or gothic stylings. The Watchtower is sturdy, and well built, with layers of defences. It has hangars, training facilities, armouries, and other facilities, and also includes recreational facilities too, where brothers can share drinks and tales of adventures, or rest in quiet contemplation. At the centre of this, is the Ironwood tree. It was in the shade of this tree that their ancestors first rallied and formed the Brotherhood.

Weapon Name Weapon Type Description
Bolter Round Bolter Round Standard bolts comprise the following components: outer casing, propellant base, main charge, mass reactive detonator cap, depleted deuterium core, diamantine tip. The round possesses a super-dense metallic core.
Dragonfire Round Bolter Round Used by Sternguard Veterans, it release a gout of superheated gas that makes a mockery of cover; the gas discharge ensuring that struck targets receive full damage, even if partially protected.
Hellfire Round Bolter Round The Hellfire replaces the core and tip of the standard bolt round with a vial of mutagenic acid, and thousands of needles that fire into the target's flesh on impact, pumping the acid into the target. Developed specially to combat Tyranids, Hellfire Rounds have equally devastating results on other organic targets.
Inferno Round Bolter Round Designed to immolate their targets and destroy them with superheated chemical fire. The deuterium core is replaced with an oxy-phosphorus gel, known as Promethium.
Kraken Round Bolter Round Powerful armour-piercing rounds. The deuterium core is replaced by a solid adamantine core and uses a heavier main charge. Upon impact, the outer casing peels away and the high velocity adamantium needle accelerates into the victim, where the larger detonator propels shards of super hardened metal further into the wound. These are effective against heavily-armoured infantry.
Metalstorm Round Bolter Round Best against multiple lightly-armoured targets, the Metalstorm round detonates before impact and sprays shrapnel, shredding their victims. A proximity detonator replaces the mass-reactive cap, and the diamantine tip and deuterium core are replaced with an increased charge and fragmentation casing.
Stalker Round Bolter Round Are rounds with low sound signatures, meant for covert fighting and used in conjunction with an M40 targeting system and an extended barrel and stock on a bolter to produce a sniping weapon system. A solidified mercury slug replaces the mass-reactive warhead for lethality at sub-sonic projectile speed. A gas cartridge also replaces both the propellant base and main charge for silent firing.
Tempest Round Bolter Round The exotic Tempest round incorporatestiny plasma shock generators that emit electromagnetic and thermal radiation when the shell detonates. Produced only on Mars, Tempest shells are noted as particularly effective against machines and mechanical targets.
Vengeance Round Bolter Round This round utilises an unstable flux technology which makes them slightly hazardous to use but makes them very good against armoured targets. Their effectiveness against power armour means they are highly sought after.

Vengeance Rocket Air-Ground Rocket Unrelated to the Whirlwind's Vengeance Missile, the Vengeance Rocket is carried only on the Storm Eagle. The Vengeance Rockets are not guided, but are deadly, being fired en-masse to shred enemy positions with punishing fire. Each rocket releases a hail of fragmentation.

Melee WeaponsEdit

Melee Weapons
Weapon Name Weapon Type Description
Combat Knife Blade Weapon Used as a weapon of last resort, or a tool for silent execution, the combat knife is a monolithic blade, comparable to a sword for a normal human. The hardened blade can easily slip through the plates of hardened armour, and deliver a fatal blow.
Chainsword Chain Weapon The standard weapon of officers, boarding parties and assault squads, the Chainsword uses motorised mono-molecular teeth to eat it's way through armour, flesh, bone, and anything else between it and its prey. Gory and loud, they provide a suitable end for the Emperor's enemies.
Eviscerator Chain Weapon A two handed variant of the Chainsword, the Eviscerator is an incredibly powerfuly weapon, being capable of slicing through heavy armour, sealed bulkheads, even vehicles. Such weapons are exceedingly powerful, especially against other Astartes.
Power Weapon Power Weapon A catch all term for a type of weapon, Power Weapons use a disruptive force field to slice their way through armour, flesh, and bone. Lethal, especially against a singular opponent, the design of the Power weapon can vary widely, including swords, axes, spears, glaives, and halberds.
Relic Blade Power Weapon A two handed power weapon from the dawn of the Imperium, these treasured relics are carried by the greatest heroes in the Chapter. Such is their strength, they could cleave through a renegade astartes, and the wall behind him, without coming to a stop.
Power fist Power Weapon Covered in the same disruptive energy as other Power weapons, it offers tremendous power, at the cost of agility. While slow, the power fist allows the user to crush powers, tear off armour, and smash enemies.
Chain Fist Chain Weapon The Chainfist is the marriage of a Power Fist and Chainsword, keeping the strength and power field of the Power Fist, with the cutting power of the Chainsword. The disruptive field covers the Chainsword, allowing it to quickly chew through bulkheads, making it the perfect entry tool.
Lightning Claw Power Weapon A power Fist gifted with energised claws, the Lightning Claw can scissor through flesh and bone with ease, causing grevious injuries, or outright reducing its target to bloodied chunks.
Thunder Hammer Power Weapon A massive hammer, it utilises power fields in a novel way. Instead of being constantly on, it only activates at the moment of impact, with incredible force, resulting in a powerful crack, often throwing its prey back in disarray.
Crozius Arcanum Power Weapon A symbol of office, and a powerful weapon in its own right, the Crozius Arcanum is a Chaplain's badge, and in a pinch, its power field allows it to crush a foe as a powerful bludgeon.
Force Weapon Force Weapon Carried by members of the Librarius, the Force weapon is a conduit of their power. The weapon seems to differ little from other weapons, but possesses a psi-connvector that channels the psyker's power. At the moment of impact with their foe, the Psyker's power is focused, and the weapon acts as a conduit, transferring that power into their foe. Like power weapons, these can take many forms, such as swords, axes, spears, and staffs.

Explosives and GrenadesEdit

Explosives and Grenades
Weapon Name Weapon Type Description
Frag Grenade Anti-Personnel Grenade A plentiful pattern of grenade, it is set on a timer, and explodes in a hail of lethal shrapnel
Krak Grenade Anti-Armour Grenade The Krak grenade uses implosive force to crack open armour. Useful against light to medium armour, Krak grenades are unwieldy to follow, meaning they must be fixed in position.
Melta Bomb Anti-Armour Grenade Using the same technology as a melta weapon, the Melta Bomb is perfect for destroying heavy armour, or breaching enemy hard-points. Once placed, it melts a hole straight through it's target.
Concussion Grenade Anti-Personnel Grenade Using a concussive shockwave, rather than a fragmenting explosion, the Concussion grenade is lethal in close quarters, especially in ships.
Blind Grenade Support Grenade The Blind grenade uses smoke, chaff, and heat decoys to creating an obscuring cloud that blocks most sensor technology.
Breaching Charge Explosive Charge Used during sieges, the Breaching Charge is a heavy explosive, that must be placed with care. Once in position, it is detonated, creating a large and powerful explosion that is focused upon its target, usually a structure or fortification
Frag Assault Launcher Anti-Personnel Grenade Mounted on certain Land Raider variants, the Frag Assault Launcher is fired after breaching the enemy's defence, flooding the area with a hail of shrapnel intended to annihilate any enemy in the vicinity.
Ironclad Assault Launcher Anti-Personnel Grenade Similar to the Frag Assault Launcher, the Ironclad is both offensive, and defensive, firing off grenades with the intention of pinning, blinding, or killing any defenders still in the vicinity of the unit.


Armour Name Armour Type 'Description
Mark 2 "Crusade Armour" Power Armour One of the oldest patterns of Power Armour still in circulation, the Crusader armour is dated by modern standards, but still possesses incredible armour, and tough features. The suits are regarded more as a ceremonial item, and rarely sees battles.
Mark 3 "Iron Armour" Power Armour An improved variant of the Crusade Armour, the Iron features much heavier armour, and as a result is more cumbersome. these suits are still highly prized, especially by the Tyrants.
Mark 4 "Imperial Maximus Suit" Power Armour Considered the pinnacle of Power Armour design at the time of its inception, the Maximus was superior in every regard to the Crusade Armour. Still kept in some numbers, they are even traded by their allies who can still manufacture the suits.
Mark 5 "Heresy Armour" Power Armour More a badge of honour, the Heresy Armour was originally an ad-hoc suit made by the Loyalists to make up for deficits in suit numbers and capabilities. The Heresy suit is resistant, but heavy and power hungry.
Mark 6 "Corvus Armour" Power Armour Precursor to modern suits, the Corvus features many components and technology that would be seen on later suits. The Corvus is a tough and reliable suit, with very powerful and accurate sensors. lighter, easier to manufacture, more reliable, and more stealthy than previous models, the Corvus is still manufactured.
Mark 7 "Aquila Armour" Power Armour Considered a standard amongst the Chapter, the Aquila armour is a well balanced armour, mixing armour, ease of manufacture, and mobility. Almost every battle-brother has worn one of these suits once.
Mark 8 "Errant Armour" Power Armour The most recent armour pattern, it improves on the Aquila with extra armour around the collar. Manufacturing delays have meant the suits are in short supply, so they often only go to veterans.
Cataphractii Pattern Tactical Dreadnought Armour The most ancient pattern of armour referred to as 'Tactical Dreadnought Armour', the Cataphractii is a monolithic suit of armour, covered in slabs of armour, and potent shield generators. While slow moving, its possesses incredible protection. There are very few suits of these armour.
Tartaros Pattern Tactical Dreadnought Armour Probably the most advanced suit made yet, the Tartaros is the greatest balance of strength, protection, and mobility. However, this comes at the cost of it being the most technically advanced, and most costly to build. With the information to build them having been lost, the Tartaros is becoming increasingly rare.
Indomitus Pattern Tactical Dreadnought Armour The most common suit of Terminator Armour, the Indomitus is strong, and with incredible protection. Built like a tank, they are heavy duty suits meant for close quarters combat. They are used by only the most elite forces in the Chapter, who carry the Crux Terminus honour.
Centurion Armour Heavy Duty Power Armour A larger exoskeleton, not unlike the Terminator suits, the Centurion is a high power suit that allows for incredible strength and armour, at the cost of manoeuvrability. The Centurion is a massively armoured suit, designed for siege work. Its strength allows it to carry heavy weapons without a care, or smash defences.
Scout Armour Body Armour Compared to every other suit in use, the Scout Armour is probably the simplest. Using basic combat armour over a hardened fabric uniform, the suit is tough and resilient, but is nothing compared to Power Armour.
Combat Shield Shield The Combat Shield is a small plasteel shield, with a power generator inside of it. Light weight, and bolted to the wrist of the user, it is easy to use, and allows the operator to still carry a sidearm, or wield a two handed weapon
Boarding Shield Shield A heavy duty slab of armour, the Boarding Shield is used to ward off fire during incursions into enemy starships. Heavy armoured, and protected by an energy shield, it ties into the auto-senses of the user's power armour. It features a notched plate along the side that allows the user to fire a weapon, even while the shield is up.
Storm Shield Shield The most powerful shield used by Astartes, the Storm Shield is large, and cumbersome, and shielded in a field of shimmering energy, that snaps and crackles on impact. Capable of warding off the fire of anti-tank weapons, the Storm Shield is carried by Terminators when storming the enemy's position.

Dreadnought Name Dreadnought Type Description
Dreadnought Dreadnought An engine of destruction, every dreadnought contains the interred remains of a hero of the Chapter, close to death, but kept alive by the life support systems held within. Each is deadly at range with their cannons, and at short range, with their fearsome power fist. Despite their size and bulk, they are surprisingly agile and sure footed.

Contemptor pattern Dreadnought Heavy Dreadnought An ancient pattern to Dreadnought, lost to the Imperium at large, the Contemptor is still a frighteningly powerful monster. Clad in heavy armour, and protected even further by Atomantic shielding, the Contemptor strides forth, ignoring even the deadliest of weapons. It takes much of the same weaponry as the smaller Mk IV and Mk V dreadnoughts.
Deredeo pattern Dreadnought Long-ranged Support Dreadnought Cousin of the Contemptor, the Deredeo is heavier in armour, and much stockier, and carries on its shoulders much more mighty weapons. Rather than the rampaging might of the Contemptor, the Deredereo specialising in precise, long distance fire, hitting the enemy with punishing accuracy.
Leviathan pattern Siege Dreadnought Siege Dreadnought The largest, most powerful pattern of Dreadnought ever manufactured, these barely-understood machines contained unique technologies that have been lost to the onset of time. Armed with phospex launchers, hunter-killer missiles, and a chassis mounted Volkite Calivers or heavy flamers, it is a force on the battlefield. The machines take a toll on their occupants, sapping them of their little remaining life, and driving them mad.

Power fists come in a variety of patterns, including more-claw like designs, and large patterns on Contemptors, that pack plasma and graviton weapons.
Hellfire Missile Launcher Missile Launcher A high-power missile launcher, it uses the Dreadnought's auto-senses to fire off salvoes of frag and krak missiles. Considered top amongst ranged weapons, it is used by Hellfire dreadnoughts.
Hurricane Bolter Bolter Weapon Using six linked bolters, the Hurricane produces a hail of fire capable of cutting down whole squads in a screaming hail of bolts. Its mounted on the Ironclad dreadnought exclusively.
Flame Storm Cannon Flamer Larger than even the heavy flamer, the Flame Storm is used to sweep infantry from defensive locations, incinerating a dozen at a time.
Seismic Hammer Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon When a structure must be brought down, the seismic hammer is used to do it. Similar to a power fist, it hits with a hammer blow against structures, smashing them down with thunderous blow, after thunderous blow.
Chainfist Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon Combining a power fist and chainsword, it uses a mixture of power fields and cutting teeth to cut through solid structures, cutting open bulkheads, armoured vehicles, so on.
Conversion Beamer Beam Weapon Mounted on the powerful Contemptor, the Conversion Beamer is a rare weapon from another time. The beam is more effective at range, where the beam can focus in on its target. It has a certain sweet spot, where above, and beneath that, it is less effective.
Cyclone Missile Launcher Missile Launcher A precursor to the Terminator Cyclone Missile Launcher, the Cyclone uses the dreadnought's own sensors to fire off a salvo of guided frag and krak missiles with unnerving accuracy and lethality.
Anvilus-Pattern Autocannon Battery Autocannon The Anvilus pattern is a extremely accurate autocannon weapon. The twin linked cannons are linked to a large ammo reserve, and highly-accurate sensors, allowing it to fire salvoes that can strike down fast moving vehicles, or bring down infantry.
