Go To

Primarch-Progenitor, to your glory and the glory of Him on earth!

The Imperial Fists was a Legion, then a chapter of Imperial Space Marines in Warhammer 40,000, bred from and lead by their primarch, Rogal Dorn. Noted for their determination and discipline even by Warhammer 40,000 Imperial Space Marine standards, along with being considerable expertise at siege warfare. The other Legion that similarly specialised in siegecraft before the Horus Heresy was the Iron Warriors, fostering a rivalry that would develop into outright hatred during the Heresy, and would only get worse after it.


Chris Robeson's Sons of Dorn is an Imperial Fists novel; they also feature in Graham McNeill's Storm Of Iron and Horus Heresy novel Fulgrim.The Imperial Fists were the chapter focused on in the first ever Warhammer 40K novel about Space Marines, the tellingly-titled Space Marine, which formed a kind of prequel novel to Ian Watson's Inquisition War trilogy.

They were originally believed to be the founding chapter for the Soul Drinkers.
