Warhammer 40k - Adeptus Mechanicus
The Adeptus Mechanicus is an Imperial faction in Warhammer 40k, produced by Games Workshop.
Once merely human they scorn the weakness of the flesh; instead preferring superior metal augmentations. All adherents of the Omnissiah feature extensive cybernetic modification, with the most senior priests having almost no organic flesh left.
Politically distinct from the rest of the Imperium, the Adeptus Mechanicus cloister themselves away on Mars but founded great forge worlds throughout the galaxy. They concern themselves with venerating their machine god and seeking lost technologies, while also manufacturing the Imperium’s tools of war. Ammunition, guns, tanks and more flow from their forge worlds like water to outposts all across Imperial space; making them an indispensable ally to the Imperium of Man.
An Adeptus Mechanicus army offers durable, good value infantry with access to numerous exotic and ancient weapons; from implacable battle servitors and radioactive ammunition to rare Volkite weaponry: weapons capable of igniting flesh in a conflagration from afar.
Deceptively mobile, with good defensive buffs and ability to field & repair Imperial Knights make the Mechanicus a formidable force to reckon with.
