I am trying to write a competitive list that sticks to the fluff.tell me what you would change.
I've just began playing Space Marines some weeks ago and I was wondering what is the best way to equip a 10 man Sternguard Veteran squad in a Vulkan army? I was thinking about using two heavy flamers and combi melta and combi flamers, but which upgrades and how many would you recommend...
Putting together my first army and loved the Salamanders fluff and the idea of a drop pod assault.
I have several rules when constructing this list.
1. Rules as intended, not rules as written.
2. No power gaming
3. Must make sense within the fluff (No Bikes or Land Speeders).
4. Almost all...
I've been toying around with a million possible combinations only to be unsatisfied with my attempts. Here is my attempt at a salamander list built around (not particularly around) Vulkan.
Assault Terminators (10 )
Greetings, Loyalist Scum! :P
Seriously, though: I've got a copy of the Vanilla Codex, and since my gears were still in motion after crafting my hilariously bad CSM build I decided to take a swing at the Emperor-loving side of things.
Because I love fluff, I generated two fluffy lists; one...
This is a strike force designed to bludgeon any static army into rapid submission, can also respond very quickly to threats presented by a mobile enemy.
Vulkan He'stan - 190
Terminator chaplain - 130
5 terminators w/heavy flamer - 205
6 assault terminators - 240
I've just started painting again, after a break of about 10 years. All my old paints have long since dried up, so I'm starting from scratch.
As you can tell these miniatures are still in progress, but comments and suggestions are appreciated.
Salamander Marine Sergeant
190 - Vulkan (King Koopa)
465 - TH/SS Terminators + Dedicated Redeemer with Multimelta and Extra Armor (Hammer Bros)
175 - full Tac Squad with Melta+Multimelta (Koopa Troopas)
140 - full Scout Squad with Sniper Rifles and Camo Cloaks (Snifits)
1000 points on the dot. I'd like to squeeze in a...
I am new to warhammer 40k and I decided to go with the salamanders as my army of choice.
I've also taking a liking to the whirlwind but every army list i've seen does not include a whirlwind is it at all viable to add one to an army?
This is not related but any painting tips is...
I'm going to preempt this blog with my usual warning that things I work on take a long time to get built, so I wouldn't be surprised if I'm slowly adding to this thread over the next couple months. Abandon all hope [of regular updates], ye who enter here!
So, here's the run-down.
For a time, I...
I've recently returned to space marines, after sampling a few other races, and I have settled on the Salamanders chapter. With the recent release of the Planetstrike rules i've decided that having Furioso and Mortis dreadnoughts will be an advantage under various circumstances. Having bought...
First off, i have made it my lifelong project to have the complete salamanders chapter in models. the new codex greatly helps with this by going through the ultramarines organization of the entire chapter, I would assume that the salamanders are the same, but under their description it says that...
