Welcome to the forums, The Salamander!
Sorry to be so hard on you the first time we meet, but I don't exactly see how this thread benefits the community. What is the point you are trying to make, or what is the topic you want to discuss?
Salamanders are very competitive in fifth edition because Vulkan He'stan's special rules are pretty good. The higher the game's points limit, the more the army benefits. The color scheme is a little dull for my taste and the fluff not very appealing to me (pyromaniacs), but that is personal taste. What do you want to hear?
Every poll needs a closing date, by the way. Check out the forum rules.
They are have pretty neat color scheme and a reasonably altruistic backstory (within the purview of Grimdark). They are themed on Meltas and Flamers (which SM players spam anyway but now they have a fluffy reason for it). Other than that, they're pretty much the same as Codex Marines.
Terminator armor going critical would be like Three Mile Island only very, VERY angry, and carrying a hammer.
LO rules in a nutshell: Don't post unit costs, be polite, rep posts containing of win.
Short answer: no.
Long answer: no, vulkan doesn't make a salamander list and if you follow it without him you end up with a list that would typically rely heavily on melta rush, which sadly isn't as good as plasma rush.
They are an average SM, no more special than 90% of lists you can make.
/sniff/ /sniff/ I smell a troll.
Sons of Russ shall hold the day, but Vulkan can be quite cheesy, not my problem cause after he kills my rhinos, my wolves get to play
Umm I'm going to have to agree with Red Archer here, what exactly is the point of this thread? The way I see it forums such as this one are here for discussing ideas, and helping others in the gaming community. This thread on the other hand seems more like the begginings of a possible flame war on the ultimate chapter.Coolness of the Salamanders aside I think there are more productive ways about sharing ones opinion on their favorite chapter. Hope I'm not being too harsh on the new guy
Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!
they rule just as much as codex space marines because.. that's what they are
I like Vulkan, he has a cool background. I don't think their army is all that awe inspiring, you can run it a few ways but it's nothing new like a Pedro army.
Maybe clean up the OP a bit so you don't look like an over-sugared kid. ;]
