    Salamander's Master of the Forge

    If you play Salamanders, you should probably rejoice.

    I just stared at the page for the Master of the Forge in disbelief for about 5 minutes.

    Mostly, because I play a Chaos army that only uses melta's and flamers. This guy let's your entire armies melta, multimelta, flamer and heavy flamer count as twin linked. And the thunder hammers in your list are master crafted. Not to mention a great stat line (artificer save), awesome master crafted relic blade (reminds me of old darkblade chaos lords), and built in heavy flamer. A pretty negligible cost, too.

    Oh, I hate you, and your new shiny codex. But there is no need to rant! I will just have to play freaking Space Marines.

    Well it's not the master of the forge, it's Hestan, but that's just nitpicking.
    Anyway I am rejoicing right now and can't waitto be modelling my own Hestan soon enough.

    I feel twice as smug knowing that I will be one of the players who jumped on the Salamander bandwagon BEFORE, way before the new codex came came out, so ha you switchover ultramariners, HA. Dwell in your pity. =)

    Hey... where? And I was thinking of doing Salamanders but with the new Codex and all I have them on halt!

    So can you post a link?
    Thanks to all the people showing faith in me

    I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...

    I actually read a brief preview of Hestan on Bolter and Chainsword a minute ago. Sadly can't find the link.

    Anyway he sounds sick

    As mentioned MCs Relic BLade, a 2+/3+ save, digi weapons that allow rerolled to wounds in CC (IIRC), a gauntlet that acts as a Heavy Flamer, and yes....all Meltas, Flamers in the Army count as TL and all thunderhammers count as MC'd.

    Basically a very sick army. I'm curious to see what the other chapter masters will allow for their armies.

    As a complete aside, I completely disagree with the direction GW is taking w/ SM (i.e. must take a special character to make a unique chapter, such as Sallies or Iron Hands), but that's where they're going
    If you win games against Nids with flamers (aside from the Inferno Cannon on a Hellhound), you're playing against opponents with stupidity of impressive magnitude.

    With stuff like this I see way too many marines being on the table top (as if that wasn't already the case). Totally sick just like everything else thats coming out for 'em. Soon it will be Marine hammer, or perhaps with 5th edition GW is looking to bring back the herohammer days of old with all races. Meh oh well.

    He does have a few downsides.

    Namely, he can't take an Honor Guard or Command Squad. Other "Master/Captain" characters specify if they can.

    As far as I can tell, he also doesn't make Dreads heavy support like the actual Master of the Forge "Techmarine" character.

    Also, something I don't remember seeing in his stats was Rites of Battle. This means if you want a high LD all around you're going to have to take a Master or Captain as well.

    sorry but us iron hands aren't getting anything special unofturnatley... however chaplain cassius of the ultramarines makes a good count as special character seeing how he's bionic now apparently and is T6 and has FNP.
