Space Marines: Strike Force Steel Thunder
I wanted to do something different, so I chose the Lamenters, a much beleaguerd chapter that suffered from treachery in the Badab Wars. Plus, being a Pittsburg Steelers fan, their clolors are black and yellow. I also got very good at doing checkerboard patterns from painting my Goff orks.
So, my son, seeing this, wanted marines too, and his favorite color is green. He wanted Salamanders. So, with the fluff of the Lamenters, being a chapter that was whittled down to just 3 companies, and in the need to rebuild, we decided to have a detatchment of Salamanders (a codex force), help the beleagured Lamenters rebuild.
Lamenters are a 2nd founding chapter actually from the Blood Angels and are purged free of the black rage.
More to come!
