Hey guys, I have a quick question.
I recently spotted a 'Salamanders Tactical Squad' boxed set for sale, and it set off my shopping klaxons something fierce, because I'm making a start on my own Salamanders force.
I've never seen this box. I've been told it was a release around Codex: Armageddon, as a way of pushing the Sallies a bit. I have no idea what's inside here. Now, from the looks of it, this has a multimelta inside, and maybe a flamer, along with the ol' tac squad stuff.
Is it just wishful thinking, or do the shoulder pad icons look raised? Could they possibly be sculpted detail on the shoulderpad, rather than just an applied decal over a standard shoulderpad? (I'm extremely wishful that this is the case, since GW's never produced Salamander shoulderpads) Is there anything special in this box at all, as far as Salamanders go? I have read they had their own decal sheet in here, but is there anything else?
Thanks. I'll probably be trying hard to win the bid on this, but all the same I'd like to know what I'm getting.
I have never seen these before but would be interested in buying them. They are porbably long since out of production. You can buy the metal MM marine still and other than that it looks as though it is just a standard tactical box. It might have had a metal meltagun in there too but they are on the tactical sprue now.
The shoulder pads do look like a salamander design in relief. but If GW cast therm up a few years ago then why didn't they make them available when they still had all the bits on sale before last year?
I have seen 2 GW staff armies of Salamanders and they both used Alpha Legion cast soulder pads. So I think if staffers cannot get hold of Sally shoulder pads then maybe there never were any.

I think it was around Armageddon when they released it... haven't seen them for some time! Even on eBay!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
