Why does he have one leg longer than the other?!

He was born on a hill and his mother was a haggis!

I don't think that's artwork from Rogue Trader?

Its definately not from the main rulebook (I just checked), but I'm 90% sure RT era Salamanders were that colour - I have some painted up from back then which are the same dark green that the dark angels became in 2nd ed.
It might be one of the astronomican/compendium books (or perhaps even the original painting guide), i'll have a gander and then post what I find!

Though that particular Astartes originates in the Salamanders IA article, I think you'll find that this pic is from Horus Heresy: Collected Visions.

I think its from Index Astarties

Collected Visions. Some of the marine artwork in there has this dark ruddy green too, hence my choice of paint :)

For what it's worth, my original Salamanders (before the release of Codex:Armageddon) were a similar colour. My pre-Heresy ones (still very WIP) are going to use a technique I used on my Chaos Warriors of the time, which was basically Dark Angels Green blended with Brazen Brass for a dark, dull green metallic look.
