The Stormlord is a dedicated anti-infantry cariant of the Baneblade. It is armed with a Vulcan Mega-Bolter and several heavy bolters. It also has room for up to three infantry squads and can be seen as an oversized APC.
It excels in taking infantry armies head-on and can deal tremendous damage, however its actual damage output drops drastically when the bulk of enemy forces is not located in the Vulcans line of fire, and its secondary armament is not quite up for the task, which makes it imperative to garrison at least one squad of heavy infantry inside it to prevent getting swarmed.
The Stormlord can carry up to three infantry squads.
