Default Salamanders?

Is there really any other difference between marines and Salamanders other than they're I3?

They're not even subject to that anymore; that rule is third edition and therefore obsolete.

Their traits are laid out in the 'chapters of legend' section of the codex (page 45), other than that, their only differences are their colour scheme, chapter symbol and those superficial variations you make for yourself (ie. unit markings, honour badges, character backgrounds etc.). Other than that, they're like any other marine chapter.

Cool fluff though, and a great excuse to load up on thunder hammers and lizard pelts.

Well... I4 certainly makes them a whole lot more attractive... for some reason I have been obsessed with them as of late... so they don't get anything like the BT's get their Sword berethren? They were out of the same codex... oh well, good enough for me...

I do believe that you can find their special rules in the Codex Supplement:Armageddon.
You should be able to get it at your hobby shop, although it may be hard to find like the Eye of terror codex.

Like Tom said, those rules are on the very fringe of legality as they are an older incarnation... Their being demoted to Traits is a sin, however.
