Dim Grey and Red
The Storm Wings is a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding which is also a rare Successor Chapter of the Raven Guard. The Storm Wings Chapter homeworld is Eyrie, a planet in the Segmentum Solar. Almost nothing else is known about them in Imperial records.
- Encounter with the Tiger Claws (680.M41) - The Storm Wings encountered the long-lost Strike Cruiser Bakasurra, a known vessel of the Tiger Claws Chapter, which reappeared on the edge of the Segmentum Pacificus after being declared "Lost in the Warp" over a thousand years earlier in 280.M40 when the entire Tiger Claws Chapter itself had disappeared. The starship appeared to have been subject to severe temporal distortion in the Warp, and for the 100 Battle-Brothers aboard the Bakasurra, no more than a few months had elapsed since they had set out on their journey. After making contact with the surviving Tiger Claws, the Storm Wings strike force aided them in battle against Dark Eldar slavers. They resupplied the Tiger Claws, who then departed to make their way towards the location of their fortress-monastery on their homeworld of Krodha.
The Storm Wings wear dim grey Power Armour. The Aquila or Imperialis is red. The red squad specialty symbol on the right shoulder guard designates operational specialty -- Tactical, Devastator, Assault or Veteran. A black Roman numeral is stenciled on the centre of the squad specialty symbol which indicates squad number. The colour of the shoulder plate trim indicates company number in accordance with the dictates of the Codex Astartes -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company), Green (4th Company), etc.
The Storm Wings' Chapter badge is a red skull, facing forward, with red, lightning-like wings projecting from its sides. This is centred on a field of dim grey.
