Description:
Since back at the ages of the great inquisition and crusades Stormcrows have been the empires assault teams. Their necrophagous appeareance goes along with their infamity for being conscienceless slaughterers, however, in the Empire they are seen as the embodiment of true honorable and righteous warriors – and nobody would dare to dispute their position.

Their equipment has changed during the times, but they always kept their faces hidden behind the crow shaped mask.
The northern divisions equipment has been specialized to survive multiple days outside in harsh environmental conditions, keeping the best possible balance between mobility and firepower.
Thick fur coats serve as main protection against the cold. More ingenious however is the beak, mounted on the gorget it contains an air heater and filter, additionally protecting from cold air, and, of course, from airborne biological and chemical agents.
Alongside protection of pivotal parts, the cuirass is designed to support the spine and take the massive recoil of the Leopold-Friedrich Revolverbeil - A devastating multifunction weapon, which unifies the advantages of halberds and cannons.
Once brought in position, the gunner can fire up to 8 times in a row, either with armor breaking or explosive 14.5x114mm rounds. But even with their ammunition depleated, a good positioned slash with the blade still is a considerable threat to any charging enemy.
In times of need, for „difficult work“ or as lifesaver during the reload periods, each unit is additionally equipped with two incendary grenades.

Saw this on TIGS and I had to come here to comment. this is gorgeous! The sprite almost looks 3d! I think the shadow really helps with that, it's a nice touch.
Very impressive, very well done!
