A testament to Dark Fire Designs' craftsmanship, the Heavy Imperial Troopers digital STL model kit originally made its debut as a secondary release in November 2023. Inside this remarkable kit, you'll discover a total of ten models, featuring five pre-posed core troopers and five kitbashed variations.

Moreover, these models are fully compatible with other Dark Fire Designs modular kits, offering endless possibilities for creative combinations and dioramas.
Now, let's delve into the lore of the Heavy Imperial Troopers, or as they are often referred to, Storm Cops. Within the vast ranks of the Empire, the Storm Cops held a unique position as an independent military branch that operated in tandem with the Imperial Army. While they had their own command structure, Storm Cops ultimately answered directly to the Emperor and Supreme Commander, the architects of the New Order that sought to bring the galaxy under Imperial rule. These elite shock troopers were not only the enforcers of Imperial law but also the embodiment of unwavering loyalty to the Empire. Originating from diverse sources, Storm Cops were known for their adaptability and resourcefulness. Their kit includes several heavy weapons to provide vital support to the standard storm core soldiers. Despite their formidable numbers, advanced weaponry, and armor, Storm Cops faced the challenge of gaining the same level of respect as their predecessors. Nevertheless, they continued to operate as elite shock forces, making their mark on Imperial history.
