I still recall when every other army was a Salamander list. Whether they were a non-painted Gray army, or actually painted green one, they were everywhere. To be honest, I miss them, so this weeks pics of the week are the 18th legion, Salamanders

Pics of the Week happen every Tuesday where I share from my Warhammer pic library. I collect these all the time from all over, and sharing them is just fun.

Salamanders via The Lexicanum
The Salamanders were Legion XVIII of the Space Marine Legion created by the Emperor of Mankind. Their Primarch was Vulkan. The legion remained loyal during the Horus Heresy, but were severely mauled in the first great opening battle, limiting the role they could play in the remainder of the war. Their primarch is never recorded as perishing, and in fact is believed simply to be missing; the search for him and his presumed great purpose is a defining trait of the Salamanders. Other aspects of the legion of Vulkan are their great hardiness as warriors and their equally strong constitutions, willpower and devotion to humanity. In some ways, they can be considered the ideal of what it means to be a Space Marine.

  4. After all of the rumored changes to come with 6th, twin-linked flamers are looking quite tasty right about now...
