I've finally painted and asembled my new Salamander army (pics to come) and am now looking at what units I should add. I thought I had made up my mind, but figured it wouldn't hurt to seek the advice of the members here before making a final final decision.
Here's what I've got so far:
30 x Tactical Marines (load include 3 x MM, 2 x Flamers, Meltagin' combi melts and 2 x power fists)
2 x Ironclads
5 x Terminators W/ TH/SS
1 x Land Raider Reedemer (magnetized for crusader as well)
3 x Attack Bikes
2 x Vindicators
1 x Thunderfire Cannon
2 x Rhinos
3 x Drop Pods
2 x Pedators w/ AC/HB
I'm at a loos a to what would be some good competitive options to add to this army? I had originally considered a Librarian, Sternguard, another Rhino, Chaplain and 2 x Razorbacks. Now I'm just not sure lol. I go back and forth with the idea of adding more Terminators and another Land Raider or more Fast Attack options. Command squad on bikes? Etc.... There are just so many more combos to choose from, but I'm sure there are a few that should have priority. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for the help!

Are Salamanders anti Speeders? If not, a pair of Speeder Tornados with M.Melta and Heavy Flamer each could fit into the Salamander scheme. Or just a single weapon each and have them tank hunt or fry infantry.
Yes, sorry I should also mention that I'm fine with adding a few less fluffy options. I've got a ton of nifty conversions that help with the fluff. I'm also all for adding units that take full advantage of Vulkan.
A simple idea to consider. Sternguard can utilize flamers, meltaguns, heavy flamers and combi-weapons. Since these weapons are typically associated with Salamanders fluff-wise, and since Sternguards are generally accepted as a versatile unit, adding a squad or two would be great for your list.
I'm putting a 2 heavy flamer landspeeder in mine to go with 5 TH/SS terminators, 5 sternguard, 20 tactical, 5 scouts, an ironclad, and thunderfire. I have vulkan and a libby. 3 drop pods in there too.
Once a Marine, always a Marine.
I really like the idea, you did with your LR.
I would also say Sternguard, as they can purchase the weapon types, to make them "fluffy" for the Salamanders.
Maybe some more dreads? Going for a mulit-melta/fist with HF (or) TL Las/ fist with HF (or) TL Las/ ML?
Saweet! Thanks for the replies all.
I'm going to break my additions into two phases. The first will be a Librarian, Sternguard, Assault Squad and 2 x Land Speeders w/ Multi0meltas and Heavy Flamers. The second will be a few normal Dreadnoughts magnetized to all heck, more Tactical Marines and a few Razorbacks.
I really agree that the Sternguard will be a great addition.
