The Solar Hawks are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter and a rare Successor Chapter of the White Scars, raised during an unknown Founding. Almost nothing is known about this Chapter in Imperial records save for their participation alongside their parent Chapter in the campaign known as the Blackfist Scalping.
The Solar Hawks was gene-seed was derived from the gene-stocks of the White Scars, who famously defended the Imperial Palace during the Battle of Terra in the closing days of the Horus Heresy. Sharing their forefather's battle lust and aggressive style of lightning warfare, the Solar Hawks are notable for being aggressive and noble. This Chapter embody all that is best in the sons of the Khan. As their name suggests, they field an especially large number of airborne assets, regularly deploying whole wings of Stormtalons or Stormravens into battle.
- Blackfist Scalping (882.M41) - In 882.M41, the White Scars joined forces with two of their Successor Chapters -- the Solar Hawks and the Storm Lords -- to combat the Ork WAAAGH! Blackfist on the Agri-World of Lycelle. Competition between the three Chapters was fierce, with each trying to outdo the battlefield deeds of the others in the name of their Primarch Jaghatai Khan.
The Solar Hawks' Chapter colours are sunburst yellow with a golden colour Aquila or Imperialis on the breastplate. The entire left arm is white in colour, in honour of their parent founding Legion's original colours. The red-coloured squad specialty symbol -- Tactical, Devastator, Assault or Veteran -- is indicated on the right shoulder guard whilst the Chapter iconography is painted on the left shoulder guard. Squad designation is indicated by an ebon-coloured Roman numeral stenciled in the centre of the squad specialty symbol.
The Solar Hawks' Chapter badge is a red coloured hawk's head wearing a black hood, centered on a field of white.
