Well After several (unsucessful) attempts at painting both Imperial and Crimson fists I have to decided on salamanders for my marine army (They have always been a wicked chapter IMO) So I have a few Ideas for fluff and the such and would humbly request some more info on them.
Right my leaders will be Chaplain Hephaestus (named After the Greek God of the
Forge) And Brother-Libraian Mulciber (also the God of the forge, but this time its a latin name)
The basis of the army will be all heat based weapons e.g lascannon, plasma cannon, flamer, melta and mainly focusing on shooting (With the chaplain leading assualts) I've yet to actually write any fluff or storyies concerning them but I have an Idea for the battle cry:
"As the funeral pyres of our ancestors burned, so will the enemies of the Salamanders!" This won't replace the traditional one but I really like the sound of mine. So If anyone has any links to pre-existing Salamander fluff, has any tips to improve my army theme (like what not to include and the such) or suggestions on improving the battle cry or the names of the characters please come forth all feedback is and will be appreciated. Thanks in advance
Well if u wanna find some stuff on them check out codex armageddion. Besides have the rules for them im pretty sure it has some fluff in it. I dont this i have seen any fluff for them inside the index astartes excpet for in index astartes 2 at the end of the book whenre they are talking about chaplans, it has some stuff on xaivier the salamanders chaplan. Othe than that i dont know, hope my info was a bit of help.
I am no heritic, I am the savior of mankind, the voice of the emperor, cursed, hated, and hunted by my former brothers the dark angels, I now go to terra to save all mandkind, I am but a shadow, I am Cypher the fallen.
Sorry if this is late but.
One of the WDs got ALOT on the Salmanders, cant find mine But heat weapons are there things, they love mid rage fighting. For a themed army use very little if not no fast attack. Other then that take avanting of them having I4 agean Theres a lot of things to do to the army to make it fluffy. As for fluff your battle cry is prity cool. Maybe use it as a task force saying, or if your like me make it there battle cry and say there a task force that has be longs for years and finly come back...I use that one, they where lost in the Mael Strom. Hope that helps...oh yeah, look in wierd places you'll find some fluff for them, like in the 3rd ed rule book...yes there is Salamander fluff in there. 10 points to who can find it.

The new Space Marine codex has the chapter traits for Salamanders,which sadly,murder any special rules that existed for them in any previous publications.As far as fluff there's some stuff about Vulkan on that site we're not supposed to talk about. :shifty:
