    Hi!
    I'm new here...
    I want to collect Salamanders, and I want to ask You, do You have maybe any advices about this army? I read about them, and I know SM Codex (I play already Sm, but my own chapter). As a shooting army it can take many lascannons, its great, but You can only have a 3 havy support units so its quite poor...

    -plasma gun
    -Vet Sarge with signum
    -Razorback with twin-lascannon

    6 man tac squad
    -flamer
    -melta
    -vet sarge with signum and combi bolter-flamer.
    -Razorback with twin-lascannon

    Soon to come... Chaplain with thunder hammer

    Im not an expert but I think im on the right track.

    Firstly, capt sparrow, what is your most likely enemy (space marines etc..) and what style of playing suits u best- i would assume shooting

    Salamanders dont get lascannons in their basic squads, but they get the multi-melta (which is pretty good too)- of course their devestators can take lascannons though

    Overall, Salamanders are probably the best anti horde chapter of marines- lots of flamers and hardy troops and cheap Terminators

    I don&#39;t like Salamanders but they get lots of flamers, have that cool artificer armour and get "Fury of the Salamander" psychic power

    they key to salamanders is the combination of LOADs of flmaers and LOADs of thunder hammers/ storm shileds. salamanders fight best in close rnage(flamers and melta guns)a nd then they are close sot hey need to be able to fihgt in cc(thunder ahmmers and powerfists...since u mostly strike last(ini3)...strike hard&#33;&#33;&#33

    i ahve played salamanders for 2 years and have had ALOT of success wiht them. every one of my squads has 2 flmaers and a sarg wiht a powerfist.

    also the Salamanders Mantle works extremely nicely on a toole dup force commander since he has 3 wounds not getting instant kille is also a good thing&#33;(thunder hammer on him to&#33

    drive, unload, flame, smash(powerfists.thunder hammers) my salamander strat


    yes they are the best anti horde army, and unlucky for my firned who got me into 40k and suggested salamanders...he plays orks


    oh yes and the salamander terminators are nasty&#33;&#33;&#33; 2 heavy flmamers and whole lot of powerfists and thunder hammers to back them up...its hanis

    Personally, because of their close-range habits, I always think of Sergeants as 65-point leaders... cuz everyone should have a Rhino.

    This track of mind kinda goes along like the Emperor&#39;s Champion, automatically deducting points from your army out of neccesity. Funny they should both be in the Armageddon codex.

    EDIT: On another note... post #100&#33; Woohoo&#33;
