Will you be including servitors, the adeptus race etc, in the mod? :) Also commissars, libarians etc the whol minitorium? :D Oh and gothic style high rise buidlings? Orks? :)

May 13 2012, 11:06pm Anchor

Servitors might be included. As for the Commissars yes. No for the Librarians and not the whole minitorium. High rise buildings will probably be in a quantity of few numbers. Orks were already discussed and will not be added.

Adeptus Mechanicus? Drop pod rienforcments?

May 14 2012, 3:27pm Anchor

What exactly do you mean by Adeptus Mechanicus? And if the coding permits it then yes we might actually be able to use drop pods.

Adeptus Mechanicus is the sub human cyborg race that wqorship the machiene gods (not the iron gods like necrons) and service, build and crew every single of the emorers machienes of death. They are essential, you cant have a game with out them it just wouldnt make sense, anyone whos read the books would and played the games would under stand. They have robot voices and wear red cloaks to hide their deformities.

Simply, half dead, or half missing humans mixed with machienery that worship another god before the emporer but serve the emporer. The
Adeptus Mechanicus make each other.


Essential :)

The Ad. Mech. will not appear in this mod, at most there may be Techpriest Enginseers for vehicle repairs. They aren't exactly essential because they have a minor role in the Adeptus Astartes and Imperial Guard combat plans, being relegated to rear supply duty.

That is incorrect to some point, being a super lover of W40K and I have read almost every black libary book (cuz im addicted to those books lol) unlike in game,the Adeptus Mechanicus as used for unlocking bulkheads and recovering memory banks from wrecked tryanid infested space hulks on expiditions, to closing the warp, they are ALWAYS with a company of astartes on the front line and more often than not are used to relay messages to the ship orbiting the planet as astartes vox's cannot relate to that high. Another use of the Adeptus Mechanicus is a heal unit when a apocathary is not available, salvaging equipment from fallen commrades, eg destroying a heavy bolter if it was to fall in the enemys hands and of course provide blessing for the attached units machienery. They are important, it would be a shame for them to not be in a warhammer mod if there are to be tanks/astartes/imperial guard. The Adeptus Mechanicus is more essential than the Ministrium (commissars).

Where are you getting this information from? :)

The Ad. Mech. when on the frontlines use their own armies, the Skitarii, which only appear in forge worlds (the planet our story is based on is an agri world, so no presence or interest for them) or in explorator fleets (ours is a colonized world, so it's not the case).

Them being vital in space hulk missions is also non-sense as Space Marine chapters are more than qualified to clear and retrieve important assets not to mention unrelated to the mod.

Like I said before, they aren't accompanied by Astartes because they have their own army which rivals them in power, not to mention that all Astartes chapters have techmarines which do their job.

The only battlefield presence in terms of foot units of the Ad. Mech. amongst the Imperial Guard are the Techpriest Enginseers whose duty is vehicle repairs and maintenance, which are very likely to appear.

P.S. This is not a flame post.

Aye this is true, the Adeptus Mechanicus acompany the astartes rather the other way around. In any astartes chapter story there is always a techpreist, or technical combat expert or somekind of vox prest that acompanys them. The examples I gave were just a few from the last book I read, Blacklibrary.com. I know this sound like I flaming to (which I dont mean to ^^) no matter the confilct they are ALWAYS on the front lien with the troops, no matter what. I dont know what you mean by own armies, but the Adeptus Mechanicus when in a combat situation, there might be only 1 combat technition with a company fo space marines, I dont mean that they bring their own army if thats what you thought I meant lol. Kinda like in men of war, for every few men theres a random sniper or officer, theres also one Adeptus Mechanicus representive on site. It is important to have these dudes.

Where have you heard of the Adeptus Mechanicus having a complete army on the front line? :) BTW I am not refering to the Skitarii :)

They don't have an official codex or presence outside Epic 40K, but the lore states that their exploratory fleets transport their own armies comprised of Skitarii, titans, secutors and other branches.

The Techmarines are Space Marines that were sent to train in the Forge world of Mars to become the Astartes equivalent of a Techpriest and are in charge of maintaining the armoury of the chapter.

The Imperial Guard on the other hand only have Enginseers from the Ad. Mech., which is why only they will appear.

That is what I was trying to say but it has been along time since I last heard of their names! :)

The astartes have indeed Techmarines which indeed travel with the astartes on the front line and do like wise with tanks and veichals. As you have said they matain the armour of the chaptor, there is a scaled down lesser armoured enginseer (red cloak deformed) type who acompanies the any imperial force into a war zone on the front line. They dont have a combat role but are on the frontline with the astartes and tank companys (not always behind repairing tanks etc) as stated in the books, Gunheads and Desert Raiders. In these books they were used as every tank company proceeds to attack a unit, the combat plans as you said, the tanks always regroup after every skirmish, attack, before the next and the enginseer will jot around reloading, servicing the tank etc in battle, even as the shells are flying and a wrecked tank is burning, the enginseer would go and salvage it even if it means loosing his life. This is the same teqnique for the astartes.

Those are techpriest enginseers. Luthorian stated they will likely appear.
