Daily Heretic: Salamanders!

Brother-Sergeant Ziegler has begun posting his take on pre-Heresy Salamanders, one of the less common legions we get to see.

The Salamander pictures in Collected Visions got me thinking. If the Word Bearers were deeply religious, then maybe the Salamanders were their devout and spiritual mirror. The difference is that Lorgar completely destroyed his homeworld’s previous religion to begin worshiping the Emperor. Vulkan was raised with exposure to the Promethean Cult, where Fire was a cleansing wrath which judges humanity. Lorgar and his legion actively sought to worship someone/something, while the Salamanders “knew” the Emperor was the true embodiment of Fire. Of course, this is just my perspective but it’s a direction I wanted to take with my Salamanders.

Daily Heretic: Cobra6's World Eaters

Cobra6 has added a ferocious update to his blog with a selection of forlorn assault marines.

"He turned as a huge cheer erupted from further down the mountains, seeing a column of soldiers clad in the white and blue armor of the World Eaters, marching toward the approaches to the breach. The assaulters of the World Eaters were hulking warriors equipped with mighty chain axes and heavy jump packs. They were brutality distilled and concentrated violence moulded them into the most fearsome close combat fighters Loken had ever seen." -False Gods
