Recovered Artefacts

The Spear of Vulkan, a spear which burns with such heat that it can set fire to and melt even ceramite. The Gauntlet of the Forge, an armoured gauntlet capable of shooting jets of flame, as a Heavy Flamer. It was recovered by Vulkan He'Stan after he ripped it from the grip of the Pirate Lord Iath Bloodweaver. Kesare's Mantle, a strong and legendary drakescale cloak which protects the wearer. The Chalice of Fire, a forgeship, now based at Prometheus. Its vast manufactoria provide the Salamander's with their weapons of war. The Eye of Vulkan, a system of spacebound defence lasers which now orbits and protects Prometheus.

Vulkan He'Stan, the current Forgefather, carries three of his Primarchs relics with him in his quest to find the remaining four; Kesare's Mantle, the Spear of Vulkan and the Gauntlet of the Forge. Unrecovered Artefacts

And, is something special meant to happen once you've found all of them?

The ultimate fate of the Salamanders' Primarch is a matter of much conjecture, for he disappeared many years after the Horus Heresy. Some sources state that Vulkan led his Chapter for three entire millennia before he departed on some mission he never declared to the Imperium at large, though scant evidence of any of his deeds throughout that age remain. The tale is made all the more mysterious by the fact that Vulkan appeared to have left behind him a text, called the Tome of Fire, within which is locked the nature and location of nine artefacts the Primarch willed to his Chapter. It said that over one thousand standard years after the events of the Horus Heresy, Vulkan hid these nine artefacts around the galaxy for his Chapter to find, as a test to see if they were worthy of his leadership. Of these nine relics, five have been recovered, three of which, the Spear of Vulkan, Kesare's Mantle and the Gauntlet of the Forge, are wielded by the Chapter's Forgefather, Vulkan He'stan. Two, the Chalice of Fire and the Eye of Vulkan, remain on the Nocturnean moon of Prometheus in the Chapter's fortress-monastery, while the last four artefacts, the Engine of Woes, the Obsidian Chariot, the Unbound Flame and the Song of Entropy, have yet to be discovered. The Tome of Fire claims that only when all of these artefacts are recovered by the Forgefather of the Salamanders, as five now have been, will Vulkan judge the Salamanders sufficiently tempered to have passed the ultimate contest. Then, so the legend states, he shall return to lead the Salamanders in the final war against the enemies of Humanity in accordance with the prophecies written within the Chapter's most sacred tome.

Recent Events 533.M39 - The Fires of Phaistos. The entire Salamanders chapter mobilizes to defend the Cardinal World of Phaistos Osiris from Ork invasion. Together with an army of trained scholars, the Salamanders set an intricate and subtle series of traps and ambushes to destroy the Ork force, culminating in the Ork assault on the capital city Sanctis's Great Basilica, which was countered by flooding the city with promethium, which was subsequently set alight, destroying the majority of the Ork invasion.[6a]

  • 793.M40 - The Salamanders aid the Hive World of Orbulac during the Carnivals of Pain.
  • 754-756.M41 - The Purging of the Ymgarl Moons. As the Tyranids were first encountered, and began to invade the Imperium, the Genestealer species was tentatively linked to the Tyranids, and the Salamanders 2nd Company[4b] were given the duty by the High Lords of Terra themselves to purge the moons of Ymgarl of a suspected Genestealer infestation. After fighting a deadly campaign of attrition for 2 years, the Magos Biologis declared Ymgarl free of the Xenos taint,[6]
  • ???.M41 - Following the assassination of the planetary governor of the monsoon world Vaporis, and a subsequent secessionist rebellion, the Salamanders are deployed to assist the bogged down 135th Phalanx in retaking the planet's capital, Aphium. [15]
  • ???.M41 - The Salamanders battle an uprising on the Mining World of Stratos. However the uprising is a distraction orchestrated by the Dragon Warriors led by the Sorcerer Nihilan in order to steal an artifact known as the decyphrex from the floating cities of the planet.[3]
  • 941.M41 - Second War for Armageddon. Led by Chapter Master Tu'Shan, whose tenure as Chapter Master had begun only 3 years previously, the Salamanders fought with distinction. Among other feats, they managed to defend the bridge over the River Stygies from a thousand-strong Speed Freeks Army and prevented the Orks from destroying a water purification plant, thus saving Hive Tempestora from a slow death by dehydration. Although the hive eventually fell, their efforts allowed it to be evacuated before the Orks could capture the hive. The Salamanders have been involved in many magnificent wars and conquests, but in recent times even these great achievements have been eclipsed by their stalwart fighting during the Second Armageddon War. While the Blood Angels set about destroying the Ork horde, and the Ultramarines bent their strength to the defence of the surviving hive cities, the Salamanders took upon themselves the essential but neglected task of protecting the supply convoys, fighting rearguard actions against the Ork advances and escorting refugee columns. So unstinting were they in these arduous duties, the Salamanders became renowned amongst the human defenders of Armageddon as sturdy and dependable allies; a reputation not shared by other, more unpredictable, Chapters.[Needs Citation]
  • 943.M41 - The Tochran Crusade. The Salamanders are lured into a trap by Trazyn the Infinite, who seeks the Spear of Vulkan.
  • 975.M41 - The Defense of Nocturne.
  • 980.M41 - The Promethean War
  • 995.M41 - The Bloodplague Crusade
  • 998.M41 - The 5th Company carry out search-and-destroy missions against several worlds in the Heracles sub-sector suspected of being Necron Tomb Worlds.[2b]
  • 999.M41 - Third War for Armageddon. When Ghazghkull launched his new offensive against the Imperial forces on Armageddon, the Salamanders were one of the first Chapters to respond, sending their full seven[3] Companies to combat the Orks, including Chapter Master Tu'Shan personally leading his Firedrakes. In addition to the deployment of 70 Salamanders of the 6th Company, under the command of Sergeant V'reth, to Hive Helsreach in support of the Black Templars[13a], the Salamanders launched several counter-attacks against the rock-forts landed by the Orks along the Hemlock river. Preferring the close-quarter fighting within the maze of crudely carved tunnels within the Roks to the long-range duels in the desert, the Salamanders made the Orks pay a high price for their audacity. By the Season of Fire at least nine Roks were destroyed by the Salamanders' attacks, slaughtering untold thousands of filthy greenskins.[7]

Many chapters fought in the name of the Emperor, or for personal glory. Of the fully twenty chapters, only the Salamanders fought for the people of Armageddon. According to rumors, Tu'Shan himself came to blows with Captain Vinyar of the Marines Malevolent, when the latter shelled a refugee camp the Orks had penetrated.[14] Vinyar is said to have left the civilians to die because he "hadn´t time" to defend them, a notion which greatly angered the Chapter Master.[3] After the Season of Fire, only two Companies were left to protect the major population centers, while the Chapter's Techmarines have been busy rebuilding the destroyed infrastructure.[7] Tu'Shan also left a squad of Firedrakes with the Blood Angels as an honor guard for the fallen Captain Tycho.[7] Undated

Siege of Xaros – Nearly hundred days battle between armies of the Salamanders and the Imperial Guard against the Necrons of Sautekh Dynasty at the awakened tomb world of Zykorak. Eventually the Strike Force Ultra of Salamanders Chapter managed to destroy the xenos horde and the Necron Overlord, Aramakh was smashed to pieces.
