Default 2000p Fluffy Salamanders

QuoteModifyRemoveReally liked the fluff about the Salamanders, kind of unfair that they're not "supposed" to use fast attack as that's usually my favorite slots on the FOC but hey, you learn new playstyles. This is the list that I thought up for it.

Forgefather Vulkan He'Stan 190p
(Pretty self explanatory, not Salamanders without the Forgefather =))
Tactical Squad x10 (MG, MM, PF, Rhino) 235p
(The best way to take advantage of Vulkan on a Tac Squad, in my opinion)
Tactical Squad x10 (MG, MM, PF, Rhino) 235p
Assault Terminator x5 (x3 TH/SS, x2 LC, Land Raider Redeemer w/ MM) 450p
(Forgefather's Retinue. Didn't go pure Hammers cause I love Lightning Claws)
Assault Terminator x6 (x4 TH/SS, x2 LC) 240p
(The anvil to Foregefather's Hammer)
Sternguard x6 (2x Heavy Flamer, 3x Combi-Melta, Rhino) 220p
(This unit will be mean if it doesn't die. Can stay in the Rhino and still drop two Melta shots or two Heavy Flamer Shots)
Land Raider Godhammer (MM) 260p
(The transport for the other Assault Terminator Squad)
Whirlwind 85p
(Artillery that'll pound the crud out of everything)
Whirlwind 85p
(Artillery always works best in pairs)

2000 points on the dot. Plan is extermely simple. Everything goes straight down the center while the WHirlwinds hit. I might need to leave a unit with the Whirlwinds to babysit them but that'll be up to the opponent.

Default Re: 2000p Fluffy Salamanders

Okay, since the posting of this list I've playtested it and got my ass handed to me by a Meganobz rush in Battlewagons. So...I changed it around a bit. The melta rule is awesome but the fact that it doesn't have any efficient delivery system is extremely bad. So i decided to ditch the fluff a little bit and make them actually usable.

Forgefather Vulkan He'Stan 190p
Tactical Squad x10 (MG, MM, PF, Rhino) 235p
Tactical Squad x10 (MG, MM, PF, Rhino) 235p
Sternguard x10 (2x MG, PF, Rhino) 320p
Vanguard x9 (Relic Blade, 4x SS, 2x PF) 320p
Landspeeder x2 (2xMM, 2xHF) 140p
Landspeeder x2 (2xMM, 2xHF) 140p
Land Raider Redeemer (MM) 250p
Whirlwind 85p
Whirlwind 85p
