I finished putting together the last of my Mk III marines meaning all of my Salamanders are now assembled (well, barring of course the Dreadnought which is in a state of permanent disassembly). But anyways these last few will flesh my tactical squads out to 10 each, and my tactical support squads to 6 each-one with flamers and the other with meltaguns.
|One of these is not like the others...|
Going off of prior experience (only one game, but it worked quite well) the meltagunners will be accompanied by my Praetor and apothecary and will ride in the rhino. Kinda like a pseudo-command squad. The flamer squad meanwhile is left to hoof it across the table. Never a good thing for a short ranged unit.

The flamer squad will from now on outflank with my Vigilator who was upgraded from a mere grunt in my last post. The Vigilator Centurion has always been a favorite of mine, despite my abysmal track record with the type. He has scout which allows him to outflank, and he passes that onto whichever squad he joins if I understand it correctly (teh interwebz is full of Vigilator and friends outflanking in a Landraider suggestions so I'm assuming I do).
Vigilators also have a 1-time, pre-game sabotage attack for an added bonus. Its never amounted to much but there’s always the possibility of that paying for him before he even reaches the table! Their specialized ammo is kinda meh, but will at least give his attached unit a token attack beyond bolt pistol range.
Now, its back to the endless painting queue…
