This is to honor their founder, Ferrus Manus, who slew a dragon by drowning it in lava; the lava fused the dragon's metallic skin to Ferrus's hands. hands...and their belief that unaugmented flesh is weak means that it rarely stops there.
** The Iron Hands' EvilCounterpart, the Iron Warriors, differ from most other Chaos Legions in that they don't view mutations as a sign of the gods' twisted favour; instead, they view them as annoying inconveniences, and tend to replace them with cybernetics at the first opportunity. It's not to honour their founder or anything of the sort, because the Iron Warriors are brutal pragmatists of the first order; it's just that if an arm can't be used to kill people effectively the Iron Warriors don't view that arm as useful.
