Pro Imperator! Pro Hominum!
Storm Troopers are the elite special forces units of the Imperial Guard and the Inquisition. Trained from their youth by the Schola Progenium in the arts of war, Storm Troopers are, perhaps, the finest soldiers ever to serve in the Imperial Guard. Armed with their trademark Hellguns and Hellpistols, these soldiers take combat to the heart of the enemy with blinding speed and deadly precision. Their accuracy is aided by their highly-protective Carapace Armour’s integrated targeting system. Equipped with the finest weapons and wargear in the Departmento Munitorum’s arsenal, Storm Troopers are trained to carry out missions beyond the capabilities of the rank-and-file Guardsman. Deep strike assaults, reconnaissance, infiltration, sabotage, and airborne insertion are just a few of the special missions with which Storm Troopers are regularly tasked. They are the very best that the Imperial Guard has to offer, each man a perfect specimen of health and moral purity, forged by experience and training, not into a simple soldier, but into a one-man assault squad.
Stormtroopers are organized into separate Stormtrooper Companies or Detachments outside of regular regimental structure. They usually receive their orders from higher command and carry on their missions in secrecy.
Some Regiments field their own troops similar to Stormtroopers which are named Grenadiers.
