I removed information on Nocture... I'll check with Brother Argos if his stuff was taken in GW books, mag, etc...

They used to in the codex Armageddon. Now, in the new SM 'dex, you can have up to 3 Assault Squads. you may only 0-1 selection in total of either Land Speeder squadron, attack bike squadron and bike sqadron.

Cheers!

A member of the Bolter and chainsword saw that in one old WD. He's hoping to find that information. But we kinda adapt it 'cause he didn't remember exactly where the flames were on the armour... but it is!

Salamander 4th company, reporting!

That's totally amazing stuff, now I'm going to write some stuff up for my Sallies.

Thu'Ook, you deserve some karma or maybe the custom title..."Salamander Masterander...?"

Oki! For those who like references, here's a quote from a post of a guy known as Rogue Trader (a Mod on the Bolter and Chainsword).

White Dwarf Articles: UK editions (US editions in brackets where different)

WD#117:
Whirlwind: Salamanders credited with being the first chapter to use WW, in the attack on the city of Garalt, on Taral III
Rhino Markings: Adoption of hearts, clubs and spades as Squad Recognition Symbols on Rhinos at the outbreak of the HH

WD#119:
Space Marine Painting Guide: Fluff and guide to painting Salamanders in the old dark green scheme, as well as personal heraldry for officers and specialists. Also includes reference to banners and apothecary colour scheme

WD#123:
'Eavy Metal - Space Marine Heraldry: Couple of pictures - Salamanders Captain and Lt Commander (with personal Rhino) painted according to the heraldry guide in WD 119

WD#248 (#247):
Index Astartes article.

WD#265 (#264):
Battle Report: Salamanders vs. Tau

WD#266 (#265):
IA: Chaplains: Small box-out on Chaplain Xavier
IX: Genestealer: Salamander's exterminatus on Ymgarl in effort to eradicate Genestealers

WD#269 (#268)
IA: Rhino: Nocturne's Hammer, the oldest rhino in existance, belongs to the Salamanders.

WD#274 (#273)
Updated Index Astartes article.
Painting Workshop: Guide to painting Salamanders in the current light green scheme.

WD#287 (#286)
EoT: Death by a Thousand Cuts: Small mention that Salamanders were responsible for saving Thracian Primarus and Elnaur Delta in the Scarus sector


Codices:

Codex: Space Marines (3rd ed)
Brother Amadeus recalls Chaplain Xavier
Daily Rituals are compiled in part from information provided by the Salamanders

Codex: Armageddon:
Army List, no fluff worth mentioning

Please note: the Codex:Armageddon rules no longer apply to Salamanders in the fourth edition. The Space Marine Codex for fourth edition has the new rules for the army.


Inferno Magazine:

#14 - "Know thine Enemy" by Gav Thorpe: Salamanders vs Dark Eldar, features a young Xavier
Also, I had a quick look at the new Codex: 'Nids and there a bit of information about Sallies in there. It says that Sallies delayed the Hive Fleet assault against the Ultramar sector... Like I said, it was quick look, I'll have to check it out carefully and come back with more information on that.

And I wonder if I can still find some of those WD mag... ???

Well, I thought that mentionning where I took my information was OK... like when I said
