Seeker Cadres AKA Witchseekers are the Sisters of Silence version of the Heavy Weapons Team. Just as the Sisters of Silence are called upon to hunt, they are also called upon to purge. This is where the Silent Sisterhood, really, REALLY start to resemble the Bolter Bitches. To this end, the Seeker Cadres of the Silent Sisterhood are deployed for the widespread purgation of opposing forces, condemned criminals, tainted Abhumans and other gene-threats, as well as the pacification of aggressive, rebellious or resistant crowds and bystanders.
Primarily equipped with flamers or more rarely assault needlers or grenade launchers. Their secondary tactical function is to deny rogue elements of escape routes, cut off avenues of ambush and prevent encirclement by often numerically superior opposition forces. Even within small detachments, the Seeker Cadres are deployed to prevent the interruption of the retrieval of the Imperial Tithe.
However, in such instances, they are often presented as a force intended to intimidate the related governing structures and population into compliance through fear rather than having to carry out the promise of death and fire they so obviously represent, though of course they never shirk from this dark duty when it becomes necessary.
On the table top. Their not as good as Militia Grenadier Squad due to their lack of options. However they are one of the best anti-psyker options in 30K. They also a huge threat to the three blob armies that are available in 30K with just their Flamers alone. However their best weapons are Grenade launchers. With their noob tubes. They can crack open Rhinos and bombard the occupants. Allowing your big guns to take on tanks, walkers, and monstrous creatures instead.
