The Silver Line Stormguard Company is equipped with polished steel armor in honor of their original members. To facilitate its more defensive role, its recruits are armed with thunder halberds, mechanika polearms based on the more common voltaic halberds. These weapons can unleash devastating gravimetric energy when striking, potent enough to knock a heavy warjack to the ground. In addition, the armor of a Silver Line Stormguard is fitted with a kinetic generator that can produce a wall of energy to slow enemy troops, blunting even the most determined charge. The Silver Line sergeant carries a thunder halberd that incorporates an electrostatic nexus in its head. Strikes from the units’ thunder halberds feed energy into the electrostatic generator, allowing the Silver Line sergeant to unleash an electromagnetic burst that turns enemies into living lightning rods, making them far more susceptible to the lightning attacks of Cygnar’s deadly storm tech.
The Silver Line Stormguard serves in a primarily defensive or support role and is often deployed to hold key positions, to work with more traditional Storm Knights to increase the efficacy of their lightning attacks, or to serve as the unassailable center of a Stormguard line.
