The Stormguard are knights of the elite Storm Knights of Cygnar . As the stormguard march to war, the air around them darkens with the promise of an electrical reckoning. Each is a master of the voltaic halberd, a mechanikal polearm constructed to hack through flesh and steel while torrents of energy leap far into the ranks of the enemy. Every halberd strike charges their sergeant’s nexus generator, a weapon of electric wrath that hums with the accumulated power. The air fills with the smell of ozone as the generator charges, and tongues of electricity play across the armor of the gathered soldiers in the sergeant’s unit. At the right moment, he can unleash the destructive potential in a lightning strike that blasts apart enemy formations.
The Stormguard are deployed to hold strategic positions or shore up exposed flanks where they carve apart anything in their way. In their training at Fort Falk they endure endless grueling drills. Each Stormguard knows his life depends on the men next to him, and as a result they fight as one.Like all storm knights, these hardened men are living symbols of Cygnaran advances in the science of war. King Leto trusts his own safety to their protection and has ordered more of their number to take to the front lines. The sight of the Stormguard inspires common soldiers and reminds them of their king’s admiration and support.
