Decided to resurrect this thread, and see if we can take it as far as the Black Templars and the Adepta Sororitas. Please don't copy lines from the "You know you're a son of Ferrus when..." thread.

 

You know you're an Iron Hand when Flash Gitz publicly acknowledge you have more dakka than they do.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

When the reason Necrons keep attacking your forces, is because your many augmetic organs confused them- the foul xenos think you're a C'tan shard, which they must contain.

When you make a member of the Ork Kult of Speed say, "Da red wunz do not go fasta! Da wunz dat got da white hand do!" in the split-second before you crush the xeno's insult to the Omnissiah beneath your tank's mighty tracks.

 

Yes, you can even do that to the xeno's flyer.

When your idea of a "Sternguard Veteran Squad" is seven Vindicator siege tanks, plus three Hunters and/or Stalkers to defend them from enemy flyers.

 

When your idea of a "Vanguard Veteran Squad" is seven Stormtalon gunships, plus three Stormhawk interceptors to dogfight enemy flyers.

 

Despite committing the sin of existing in Man's galaxy, you must admit the Ork concept of "more dakka" is valid.

When you ask a Techmarine to make a boltgun-flamer-chainfist combination weapon, so you can match a Traitor Marine shot-for-shot and blow-for-blow, the Techmarine says, "Great idea! Give me a couple hours to acquire and assemble the components!" instead of the "Are you out of your censored.gifing mind?!" one would receive from a lesser Chapter's Techmarines.

You know you're an Iron Hand when you think that thirty Whirlwinds is barely enough for one devastator squad, and you need another two dozen to even approach acceptable levels of firepower.

When you have been driving the same crappy car for 17 years because IT WILL NOT DIE

When you chrome-plate the entire vehicle (minus the tires and/or treads) to honor its Machine Spirit.

When you view nickel and chrome as a precious metals for the number of arms, armor, and vehicles whose Machine Spirits must be honored.

...if you've stopped pounding the table when frustrated, because you're running out of tables.

If you make a table out of living metal salvaged from defeated Necrons, the xenos' heads- with expressions of terror frozen upon their otherwise blank faces, for you have forced the emotionless xenos to relearn how to feel fear- at the ends of the tablelegs.

Fear the wrath of iron- the anger a son of Ferrus Manus will bring upon all enemies of the Imperium!
