Yeah, before any comments you're going to have to take the itemized points off the list. Heresy doesn't want to get in trouble with GW for listing upgrade prices.

Little iffy here, chaplains are mainly close combat based, i think a librarian might have a bit more utility on the tabletop for you
1 Forgefather Vulkan He'stan
What salamander army doesn't have this guy
1st Close Assault Squad
1 Dreadnought + Assault Cannon
not bad, but remember vulkan's ability to twin-link melta, so you may be better off trying to squeeze in a drop pod and giving this guy a multi-melta
4 Terminators, 1 x Assault Cannon
1 Sergeant
Vulkan master crafts thunder hammers, so i would take full advantage of that by making this a Thunder Hammer Storm Shield unit
2nd Tactical Squad
9 Tactical Squad SM
1 Sergeant, + Melta Bombs + Power Weapon
Again, try taking advantage of vulkan's ability by putting a melta into your tactical squads

3rd Tactical Squad
9 Tactical Squad SM
1 Sergeant, + Melta Bombs
see above
6th Tactical Squad
9 Sternguard Veteran Squad SM, + Combi-Flamer x9
1 Sergeant,+ Melta Bombs + Combi-Flamer + Power Weapon
This squad should have a drop pod to take full advantage of all those twin-linbked flamers, and i would give the sergeant a power fist
9th Hvy Support Squad
4 Devastator Squad SM, + Heavy Bolter x4
1 Sergeant, + Power Weapon
The army is lacking a small bit in anti-tank, so i would try giving these guys missile launchers and drop the power weapon

Arrr, my bad, forgot to add in that my Tac Squads have Flamers and MM's.

Thanks for your tips there your Exalted Highness, I don't see the utility of a drop pod?
