Once held in the vaults of the La’Certa Royalty, a gift to the founders of the line in eons past. This bright yellow crystalline structure, all spikes and shards like an organic growth, large enough to be used as a throne at one point. The sparks of energy that leap from it’s surface, arcing towards any significant chunk of metal is one of the reasons why it was relegated to the vaults. Apparently an entire retinue of Knights guarding the King where left little more than smoking charred skeletons in their armour. The Tempest Crystal is a member of the unaligned faction.
The unaligned are a catch-all faction. For those assets which either due to being mindless constructs, or because there loyalty is easily bought, or otherwise fickle, might fight for just about any organisation at any-time.
The crystals are an unusual group of objects found amongst the unaligned with unique properties. They grant an action to all the other models in your strike team in the form of their gift. In this case The Storm allows any of your strike team to create cover at will. Crystals also have an aura and attributes that grow in power as the crystal charges. In this case the crystal gains power whenever models with the “Draco” keyword are destroyed. Making this the perfect anti-knight model. The aura can also grant allies bonus AP.
