    Angel Porphyr Fluff and Tactics?

    I thinking about repainting my Salamanders for a more less 'regular' chapter. I found them in aussie WD250 and like the colors but I can't find much fluff or any tactics to bace what traits to give them. So any fluff or other helpful stuff about these guys would be great.
    Thanks.......

    I don't think that there are any. They are just one of the Myriad of chapters which are mentioned or imaged once or twice and then left.
    Make of them what you want.

    well they favor the flamers and meltas. the triat that lets u use two assault weapons should fit ( it is in the new space marine codex )

    they are craftsmen and they mekes alot of terminator armour for other chapthers so i would belive they use alot of them to.. if you find the fluff bible you should be able to read alot about them.

    buy a box of lizard men and stick a head or to en them beacuse to become a salamander dude they have to do stuff their primarch did and that included to kill a large salamander on their homeplanet.

    That is salamanders, not Angels Porphyr Astroth. Wrong thread perhaps?

    the only fluff I've ever seen about the Angels Porphyr is Brother Damos, the venerable Dreadnought who lead the defense against the massed killa can during the third war for armageddon.

    I would say they probably have Heed the Wisdom and Honor your Wargear, with Eye to Eye as their negative. Since Damos is almost as revered an ancient as Bjorn the Fell-Handed, they should really be allowed to have a venerable lead their force, but there is no way to accomplish that with the existing trait rules.

    They are Ultramarine decendants so they are codex marines without any traits.

    That isn't a given Sanctus. Chapters derived from UM genestock are just as likely to be devient as those from other genestock.
    Examples:
    The Fire Hawks (later to become the Legion of the Damned, but I hardly think that a member of the cursed dounding would follow the codex as strickly as the UM)
    The Golden Dragons (as deviant as any of the Chapters with their own codex, as requested a link. The rules may not be official but they appeared in the Rogue Trader days with similar fluff, and even if it is unofficial it is still an example of a non-codex UM successor)

    The Fire Hawks were of the cursed founding, they were coded before they were lost in a warp storm and they became the LOD.

    I can find no reference anywhere to the Golden Dragons, link please.

    Even so, just because something was UM stock, doesn't mean they have to be 100% codex. I mean, come on.

    And Sanctus, it'd help if you told everybody where you found out they were UM stock?

    But yeah.

    I'd recommend, that if you can't find too much fluff about them, just make of them as you will as was said before. It's always more fun that way, I'd think.
