Storm Trenchers are Paradeploying Elites and all are equipped with Mandible shotguns except the specialists who are either HMG's or FT's.  The only requirement for them is that they have a grunt squad of equal size or larger first.

erm.. exactly what version of warzone are you playing?  Both Trenchers and Regulars are grunts.

i play 2ed. in wolfbanes before you have berserkers you must have commandos. it doesnt say regulars. i like how the system wont let you have more elite squads than regular/grunt troops. very rank and file/lots of guys to kill/no cherry picking the best only for your army. i just wanted to stay on that theory!

aah... well..

stormtrenchers are Elites and the only qualification for them is to have a Grunt squad of equal or greater size.  at least by UWZ standards.

  Indeed.  They, along with the Inhereitor Cav (those were sweet!!), would have been among the best of the models released by EE.

  A good conversion format for Stormtrenchers is to take the Imp Regulars, add the Wailing Banshee jetpacks and swap rifles for Mandible shotguns.  If one cannot find mandibles, lop off the magazine and bulk up the barrel of the invader on the fig or get another company's shotgun and greenstuff the drum mag.

Speaking of the Stormtrenchers, I found the link to the pictures of the greens for them...

It sort of hurts to look at and see what isn't going to be.

No doubt - absolutley heartbreaking (no puns intended). Wonder what it would take to actually get those minis produced? Anyone have any idea?
