Hi There I was just wondering if I could get some advice, I am just about to start a Salamander Space Marines army however I have a few questions?
I have a copy of White Dwarf 274 with the Salamander Index Astartes and I have noticed differences between that and the latest Space Marine Codex(to be expected?) as the Salamader Index is from 2002 should I use the current SM codex? (for example the Index Astartes references Chaplain Xavier however the page it references is heavy support in the current SM codex?)
Also for my starting troops I was going to use the Salamanders Space Marines Starter Army that GW are currently selling however it refers to 2 space marines with Plasma Guns I thought the codex indicated that only one marine could be armed with a plasma gun do they mean one with a plasma gun and one with a plasma cannon?
you should use the codex. but look up the section on traits. the salamanders have some pre-determined traits that allow you to field 2 plasmaguns in each tactical squad. i cant remember the name of it but it starts with "cleanse...something".
so yes, the white dwarf is pretty much useless to you now.
Congrats on your choice of chapter though, they're certainly my favorite.
Games Workshop is the Wal-Mart of hobby products, except for the low prices. The lack of respect and profit mongering is there in spades.
Thanks for that, ok WD can go back in the cupboard its 'cleanse and purify' it was staring me in the face.
Youc an always model the T-hammers and then if you lose the ability to use them after the redux then just have them function as Fists, Power Fists don't actually have to be modelled as Fists...

yes but, power fists look cool, especialy the fist that comes with the devastator box, it has the cool scroll things on the back that just beg for me to attempt to right "Vae Victus" in super tiny letters. ^^
