Obviously I was wrong.
Sorry Hobo.
I agree about the Thunderers.
Do you use both Salamanders during the same game?
I had thought about getting Oblivion a Salamander Command complete and the Scout autocannon kit and hoping he could swap them as required.
As you have both do you think this would work?
Need magnets?

No, you're correct..I do have a 1st Company Vet SM list..only 5 Vehicle-like models though, a LRR & LR and 3 Dreads. It's used mainly as a DP'ing Force in Apoc, so there's 8 Drop Pods as well. The TDA's, Land Raiders and Dreads in the list can double as a Death Wing list (3K).

My IG totals 13K (nowhere near you Guys) so I can field a standard Codex list, an Armoured Battlegroup (IA) list and an Armoured Company list. The Sallies are either used as the A/Fist Command Vehicle (HF one) and a Recon one (AC), or can be swapped for Chimeras easily enough..no-one in my regular group makes a fuss about silly crap like that, plus there's quite a few of us with large armies so our toys must be used:biggrin:

They're basically the same kit so no real dramas doing swapsies, although I don't bother..if I wanted 3 AC ones I'd just buy 2 more - HEY there's a plan:grin:

For some strange reason my lot haven't embraced the Spearhead expansion..maybe it's too close to what we play anyway, so no point - don't know really.

Ha, it would need to be a gi-normous table, what with all your stuff. We have two
8' x 6' boards that we join with a third 4' x 6' board (so a H shape). We usually only play max 5K each and there's 4 playing. We do have other Boards, just no rooms large enough...and I don't play on floors:eek:k:

I don't really like Appocolypse, the formations become too strong.
To each their own aye:biggrin:..we don't run it straight out of the book anyway, we combine it with our own narrative/campaign games, and really when I say Apoc I'm sometimes just talking about large games...it's become a part of our natural language:laugh:
