Default Question on Helmet colours.

For my salamanders, what colour should my veteran sargeant helmets be? The Ultramarine Veteran sargeants have red or white helmets, what about salamanders?

whatever you desire, as no deep specific fluff has gone into that for sallies, I think white with flames would look sweet

Codex vets have white helms, sergents have red, and vet. srgts have a mix of both (white helm-red laurel or other way around). But I don't think sally's are a codex chapter so think of some unique way.

AFAIK, vets have green helmets, like the rest of the squad. But it's up to you to change that!

Cheers!

Sallies really don't follow the Codex Astrates that closely. There are less of them in the chapter so less companies IIRC. They have the Promethean Cult. They don't use as many Speeders and Bikes. They are slower to react due to their high gravity world. I guess it depends on your interpretation if they are a 'codex' chapter or not.

'SW, BA, DA, BT and I guess White Scars...'

There are a lot more none 'codex' chapters than that.

Um.. no kidding.. I was giving the early founding ones.. all the others tend to be desendants of those... of course their are more.. and in any event, my point was that Sallies are codex. :

Are they codex, or are they not?

I don't think so, they're too cool and unique.

It's also worth noting that Apothecaries are supposed to have their left arms painted in dark red.

Well, lookin' back at all the stuff I have on Sallies on my computer, I found that:
Quote:
The sergeants are differentiated from their brother marines by having reversed shoulder pads; bright yellow with the chapter symbol in dark green. Veteran marines and veteran sergeants are marked by a hammer symbol adorning the left knee pad. Many veterans are branded with this symbol on their foreheads, between the eyes as a sign of devotion to Vulkan.
Hope that helps AC!

Yup!
Quote:
Apothecaries of the Salamanders bear an unusual colour scheme; the left arm and left-hand side of helmet are painted red, right shoulder pad and right-hand side of the helmet are white and the remainder of the armour is Chapter green.
I've seen one painted like this and it's pretty cool!

Cheers!
