'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Yeah, but that was solved earlier in the year when they first announced season 3. They literally gave us the picture of the battlecat.

With the rebranding I foresee the new hammer logo as a damaged terrain piece and the rays off of this being the winged back of the hammer.

That or Warcry specific terrain for the calculators or whatever they were called (Egyptian headdress group).

makes sense to me. in fact it could even be a grimaldus inspired primaris grav chaplain. assuming the new litanies are done up in the same was dark apostles are, chaos dark apostles will have those minons they can cart around for bonuses on their role, but marines won't.

It's right there in why he's complaining about it.

"The strongest magic".

I suppose, but there's a disturbingly high number of randomly hostaged stormcast presumably kept solely so their captors can keep displaying their hats, pants and other bits and bobs, if models (especially Destruction) are to be believed

Also from what I can tell in the lore there's a few other bits too to Stormcast being recaptured before death.

1) Armour that they wear is worn, its not magically grafted to them. Thus when the lightning bolt strikes to return them to Sigmar, if their helm has been knocked off or removed or they simply didn't pick it up after putting it down, then they might well not return with it. So its perfectly possible to steal bits of their armour; bash it off; knock it off; remove their limb etc.... The armour returning with the stormcast is more a product of the bolt of power that strikes when they fall which will hit a reasonably decent area around them.

2) As noted above, and a few times in the lore, stormcast can be prevented from returning to Sigmar by powerful magics and spells, auras and possibly even specific regions of the Realms.

3) Peddlers - get your authentic Stormcast Helms! Impress your girlfriend, stir your pot with it, cast fear into the eyes of your enemies! Get your own authentic Stormcast face helms here!
I'm serious if you're any kind of self respecting and powerful Ogre you're going to want your own trophies to show off and if you can't get a Stormcast one then you can sneakishly buy one that you're sure is authentic (its all yellow!).

4) Fallen Stormcast. In Inferno (2 or 3 I forget which) there's a tale of a fighting pit where a Stormcast is held hostage and has lost all faith in Sigmar. A Stormcast who has reached such a point might well abandon their armour and weapons. Broken and unable to feel like returning to their brothers. Stormcast are not perfect warriors, they have flaws and faults and can mentally break.
