1000 Pts SM List (Salamanders)

So I was working on my next evolution of series (the SM) and while tinkering came up with this list.

HQ- Forgefather Vulkan He’stan: 190
TROOPS- Tactical Squad (10): 225- Sergeant, bp & chainsword, melta bomb; Melta Gun; Lascannon; Drop Pod
TROOPS- Tactical Squad (10): 210- Sergeant, bp & chainsword; Melta Gun; Multi-Melta; Drop Pod
TROOPS- Tactical Squad (10): 210- Sergeant, bp & chainsword; Melta Gun; Multi-Melta; Drop Pod
TROOPS- Scout Squad (5): 115- 4 x Sniper Rifles; Power Weapon; Heavy Bolter w/ Hellfire Rounds; Cammo Cloaks
FAST ATTACK- Land Speeder Storm: 50 

Pts: 1000 Scoring Units: 4-7 KPs: 6, 9 ('ard Boyz)

So, there is a quick 1000 pt build for you. I went with Vulkan because too many people use Kantor, and in this small of a list he wouldn't be as influential as Vulkan, as it is best to have larger squads like the tactical than the smaller Sterguard Squads. With Combat Squads, you have a high chance of controlling more objectives in this small of a game just by being able to spread out more. The drop pods help facilitate this. The Melta-guns should be able to deal with anything with high T you may be facing, and the lone lascannon gives you some reach.

The scouts are fast with the Land Speeder Transport. Their sniper rifles are your fire support, along with the Heavy Bolter on both the squad and the Landspeeder. The cammo cloaks help them survive more and the one power weapon helps them defend if they get assaulted.  If you want though you can move that around in the list. In this small of a game, your enemy should not have too much teleporting or such, so get the Jammers on the Speeder to where he is most likely to drop in if he does like to teleport. As well, you can bait and switch with infiltrated scouts. In this case, they fire for a bit, and then you bring down a tac squad in a drop pod and have the Storm pick them up and move them to a new firing position.

So this isn't the list for the new evolution of series, but it is the Direction I am going. No Kantor. I am presenting something different. I may not do TH&SS termies either. I know what you are thinking "BUT YOU TOOK VULKAN". Wait and see what I have in mind instead...
