Marines have a gland that controls the melanin pigment count in their skin. Salamanders are black because theirs doesn't work properly.

All marines, if on a sufficiently sun-scorched world, will turn black. It can even protect them from limited amounts/types of radiation.

Astartes Terminator Armour
Locations Covered - All
AP - 14
kg - 400
Req - 100***
Renown - Famed

***This encompasses 60 Requisition for the Terminator Armour itself, and the minimum 40 to arm it.

"Terminator Armour incorporates all the systems of standard Astartes power armour with several upgrades. Superior actuator and stabilisation systems allow for Heavy and Mounted weapons to be fired one-handed. This also provides the Auto-Stabilised Trait and grants +30 to Strength instead of +20. The auto-senses are part of a sensorium, which provides the same capabilities as an auspex. If two or more Battle-Brothers are in Terminator Armour, the input-link capabilities of a sensorium also increase the Squad's effective Rank by 1 for the purposes of determining whether or not it is in Support Range. Terminator armour's heavy layers of protective alloys can deflect even the heaviest bombardments. In addition, the Crux Terminatus on every Terminator's shoulder plate serves as a ward capable of turning aside attacks from power weapons, melta fire, and even the baleful energies of the warp. This protection provides the same chance toe emerge unscathed as a Force Field with a Protection Rating of 35. Due to the chance of the hit glancing off the armour strongest surfacesk, there is no possibility of Overload. Also roll once on Table 5-12: Power Armour History.

The massive frame of a Terminator is not without limitations. A terminator cannot run, and the wearer suffers -20 to Agility, and cannot Dodge (but may still Parry). Furthermore, in order for the Terminator's frame to properly support, aim, and interface with weapons, the must be affixed by special couplings. Arming Tactical Dreadnought units is a laborious and sacred ritual that may only be performed by high-ranking Techmarines with the proper ceremonial accouterments and facilities. This prohibits the weapon configuration from being changed under other circumstances. Weapons typically available with the right couplings for Terminator armour are limited; when Requisitioning Terminator armour, the Battle-Brother pays the 60 Requisition for the armor itself and then must spend a minimum of 40 additional Requisition Points to arm it. Its weapons must come from the list below. (There is no restriction on Upgrades or Wargear.)
Terminator-Compatible Weapons; Any combi-weapon, Power Weapon or Force Weapon, Storm Bolter, Storm Shield, Heavy Flamer, Assault Cannon, Cyclone Missile Launcher.

Theres more to them then that. And can you blame FFG for wanting to make their own chapter and give their DH/RT setting, the Calixis sector its own chapter?

It won't be hard to make up rules. Make their special ability rerolling tech use when dealing with items of wargear. Give them a Flamer standard instead of a bolter (if a Tac Marine). They're a relatively codex following chapter, so take the Ultrasmurfs advancement tree (SHOCK AND HORROR) and replace some of the "Ultra marines are so Respected and good at talking with dudes" skills and abilities and replace them with others. Or don't, since the Salamanders are pretty popular with the common folk too.

Or just sit and stew until the supplement with additional space marine chapters (including making your own) comes out.

They collect Daemon weapons, Chaos artifacts, to turn against their creators.

Fighting Chaos with Chaos, if you will.

This eventually lead to a boatload of Inquisitors and 4 chapter masters turning up at their homeworld and demanding they turn over the chaos artifacts. They did and were sent on a century long pennance crusade (all chapters deployed to some hellish battlefront, no new recruiting, survive the century and you're forgiven).

However, not learning their lesson they started looking for new Daemon weapons to fight chaos with again.

This got them declared Excommunicate Traitoris, and then the Grey Knights came and kicked their ass.

Meanwhile my store has two blood angel armies, two space wolf armies, two "counts as" space wolf armies, and a "counts as" blood angel army for players. As well as a couple orks, a nid guy, a necron player, and an eldar dude.

I only ask because my current ideas for an Iron Hands custom Chapter involves them getting D5 Bionics instead of starting stat increases (good quality costs 2 choices) and If I were to use the Rogue Trader list of cybernetics, I'd have to add that mechadandrites, void-skin and synthmuscles are all excluded. Whereas I'd assume that the list supplied in Deathwatch would already account for that.
Although I'm in two minds about the MIU weapon interface.
In all fairness, I can see an Iron Hands having like a shoulder or backpack mounted Plasma Pistol on a MIU link ala Predator.

As for vehicles, fair enough, I thought that would be the case, I just wanted to see. I only asked with regards for doing White Scars at some point.

Into the Storm has a "Combat Bike" in it, and the one on the cover looks a lot like an Astartes model.
