Masters of the Forge - Episode 041 - The Salamanders

The XVIII Legion boasts an almost suicidal bravery in the field of battle. These astartes hold their responsibility to defend humanity in the highest regard. For the Salamanders, the ends do not justify the means; they have their limits on what they will do to achieve victory. However, do not underestimate them in combat, because once committed, the cleansing flames of righteousness will claim their foes with merciless purgation.

We conclude our 3-episode coverage of the Mechanicus with a discussion covering the Dark Mechanicus. This is a much shorter discussion than our last 4-hour monstrosity, but includes a simple, but we think fun, Dark Mechanicus supplement. Please play with it and provide as much feedback as you can. Enjoy the outro... you get a glimpse into the minds of men completely drained by sleep deprivation and mental over-working.
