Hey all so I own about 4000 points of salamanders but I want to add to the army and I just don't know what to add what's currently in my collection

Praetor
Chaplain
Primus medicae
Apothecary
10 fire drakes
10 pyroclasts
2 contemptor dreads
2 dread drop pods
3 quad mortars
55 tactical marines
2 rhinos
2 land raider Achilles
1 spartan
And Vulcan

I'm stuck with what to get because I like fast units like bikes and javelins but my play group says those aren't very salamanders because fluff. I thought about it and would drop pods fit the salamanders theme well?

I have zero special weapons on my tactical squads just 55 Bolter marines. So tactical support squads maybe? Would 9 more quad mortars be overkill? Any suggestions would be great :) thanks all

I think getting some more infantry diversity as you suggested would be a good place to start, any chance of altering some of your existing tacticals with special/heavy weapons? Other things to consider: 

  • Some more rhino chassis tanks - leaning towards vindicators/ or melta predators for theme points
  • I think dreads are very thematic for Salamanders so perhaps looking at a Leviathan or Deredo
  • You already have plenty of infantry but could also consider getting some more non-Firedrake terminators as they are a pretty fluffy unit for Salamanders
  • I also wouldn't be too caught up with the absolutely no skimmer/flyers - the Salamanders still had these units - so perhaps some Javelins or even Fire raptor/Storm eagle/Xiphon
  • Another fun thing to do could be to look at filling out the command roster (ie. the other types of Centurions)- as you already have a sizeable force, it could allow for more narrative options if that floats your boat.

I'll consider it. I'm in love with jetbikes and I kind of wanted to do a bike themed salamanders list lots of multi meltas and stuff like that. I have strongly considered a fire raptor or 2 and a friend suggest storm eagles for the 20 man tactical blobs

I think it would be awesome to see some salamanders bikes and jetbikes! (Also it would be cool to run Salamanders jetbikes with heavy flamers!)

So where does it show jetbikes can have heavy flamers? I don't see it as an option in the book so did I miss an update?

Salamanders can exchange any heavy bolters for heavy flamers for free so it's just a straight swap.

Right on well that'd be cool would have to figure out how that would fit in that spot where the weapons fit on the bikes
