Dynamo is a Cygnaran warjack powered by an integrated storm chamber that was built nearly from scratch by Sebastian Nemo after serving years as a Stormclad. Outfitted with a devastating Firestorm cannon, Dynamo represents a tremendous advancement in voltaic warjack technology. Dynamo unleashes a fury of galvanic energy on Cygnar’s foes and has become the favoured battlefield companion of the nation’s senior warcaster.


The concept for the Firestorm cannon first occurs to Nemo after completing the Thunderhead, when he is eager to create another warjack deriving its power from an integrated storm chamber. Convinced there's a way to prevent it from exploding under combat stress without resorting to experimental and expensive components, it occurs to him that the proper weapon might itself channel and store excess energy.[1]

Nemo avoids the expense of fabricating new prototypes by requisitioning severely damaged machines from the front and working on the project in his spare hours. The initial cortexes he subjects to his hardware overload and either have their memories wiped or suffer cataclysmic failure outright.[1]

The solution is a battle-scarred cortex recovered from a decorated Stormclad scrapped in the Caspia-Sul War. For unknown reasons, this veteran cortex is resistant to the tempestuous environment created by the storm chamber, and it is uniquely suited to regulating galvanic energies. After months of experimenting to insulate both the cortex and the chassis, he attaches the Firestorm. Dynamo effortlessly stabilises energy levels by releasing electrical blasts from the cannon.[1]


Armed with the Firestorm cannon fed by its storm chamber, Dynamo unleashes sustained voltaic pulses, each discharge more potent than the last. This stream of destruction can focus fire on hard targets or scatter shots to gun down infantry. The whine of this cannon charging is enough to rally faltering lines and send enemies diving for cover.[1]

Dynamo displays an impulsive eagerness that belies the age of its cortex. It is described by observers as hyperactive, which seems appropriate given its power source. It has developed a strong attachment to Nemo, who insists his own preference for this machine is a result of its independence from coal and supply, but the many hours he invested in restoring it likely play a part.[1]

Dynamo remains a finicky machine in need of the fine tuning only Nemo can provide, though these efforts have proven well worth it.[1]
