What would be some good cheaper Salamander alternatives? Since they are so good, I find myself wanting to get a few, but $20 per is rather expensive. Are there any other models from Reaper or another minitaure company that could take the place of Salamanders?

Ahahahahahahahahaha...

You could always train up some small lizards... Teach them when to move and how far... And even scurry over and inflict "casualties" when your opponent isn't looking...

I use my plastic Cold One Cows, cut of their hind legs and paint them yellow/orange/red. minimal conversions and they look pretty salamander-like to me :D (and I already have 12 old COR, which look much better)

Sounds like Biolizard to me.

I used Khorne Flesh hounds, filed off the khorne symbols, drilled brass rod into the back of the model and greenstuffed a fin running down their backs.

Probably isn't the cheaper solution you're looking for. But worked well for me.
