|Successors of||Emperor's Children|
|Colours||Black with white helmet and pauldrons|
Another Chapter that has been left in the dust. Or so we thought, more on that later. These guys were supposedly a Raven Guard Successor. That has yet to actually help give us any idea of what they really do, until the fourth Horus Heresy Black Book came out. In said book, the 34th Millennial of the Emperor's Children sided with the Imperium and bore their colors with pride and fought against the traitors. What was the name of that Millennial? The Death Eagles. Their fate is considered "unknown" but we know that's just a front. How they survived the Scouring or anything afterwards is left up to interpretation. Probably because loyalists of traitor legions became Blackshields or whatever and eventually reconstituted as Chapters. Originally they just looked like Pre-Heresy Emperor's Children. But after a few editions, they were brought back as a Raven Guard successor. Bet GW had come up with the name only to have their fans point out they already exist. Forge World, who takes GW's usual fuck-ups and make them into something useful, decided that the Death Eagles were actually a loyalist branch of the Emperors Children. Thus making their old paint job make sense along with their new paint job.
- The Solar Rebellion - Warbands from the Night Lords, Iron Warriors, and World Eaters gang together and start causing Chaos Cults uprisings in the western marches of the Segmentum Solar back in M32. Their mayhem comes to an end when a combined force of Death Eagles, Space Sharks, Minotaurs and the Angels of Absolution show up delivering vengeance from the void upon the Heretics.
- War of the False Primarch - Joined the Flesh Eaters, Red Talons, Space Sharks and the Charnel Guard in purging eleven other chapters. Notable beacause the Death Eagles don't have the brutal reputation of the other chapters, yet still were hand picked by the High Lords of Terra to form part of the pentarchy.
- Reconquest of the Forsarr Sector - After the failed raid on Kastorel-Novem, WAAAGH Garaghak grows across the Forsarr Sector to the point of threatening the Raven Guard homeworld of Deliverance. The Death Eagles help out the Aurora Chapter, Revilers and Imperial Guard forces to retake the sector from the hands of the greenskins.
Their original look before Grimdark began.
