My Home-brew Sons of Vulkan used to be a Salamander successor chapter but they had Power Armour issues (#1) and then got lost in the warp. (#2)
#1. GW changed there paint range. Shining Gold turned into Gahenna's Gold, which was a completely different shade and any new painted models looked completely different, tut.
#2. By lost in the warp I mean sold on e-bay.

Their smaller size may be attributed to their home world and radioactivity levels. Which could over generations cause stunted growth. Also black skin can be caused by generations of a people exposed to sunlight. So I feel the skin colour isn't a huge trait on a successor chapter. ... The red eyes though. Definitely more of a hint at their gene seed origins!
I also think of all the chapters, the Salamanders are on of the most worthy to be legion sized due to their kindness to the rest of humanity.

I always felt Salamanders suffered from heavy casualties due to their environment and the missions they were sent on. That could be partly why their companies are undermanned.
I do believe though that their intimate testing is the hardest of all astartes. Im sure that doesn't help how they look in terms of a force with the high lords.

I'm not including the Carcharodon Astra in this as technically they were of an unnamed founding which I'll call the 1.5 founding since they were expelled from the Raven Guard even prior to the Heresy and so they cannot be counted as 2nd founding (although in official records they are probably counted as such.)
We also know from Massacre that some of the Iron Hands went insane and we also know that the Iron Hands 2nd wave were also annihilated (described in Veritas Ferrum audibook) yet there were enough survivors to produce The Brazen Claw and the Red Talons at the end of the Heresy.

|el_machinae||I might be missing something, what makes you think there are no successor chapters? There are an incredible number of chapters with unknown founders.|

|ckcrawford||From Armageddon, though they had strengths that gave them better resistance to heat conditions and toxins, they were slightly slower and smaller than their other kin. It was enough that older stats gave them basic initiative of three.|
