Thought I would give one of these ago. Obviously troops would be very simular to imperial guard and elites a bit like storm troopers (thinking IG modles but with more augmentations).
However what sort of heavy support would they use? Weird and wonderful things like Knights/robots or more normal tanks (but with plasma/laser weapons)
i think it would be the knights and the like for hvy support... tanks seem a bit not to mechanicus for my tastes
The strong will always enslave the weak. Where the strong make their own fate, the weak bow their heads and succumb. There are few who are strong and many are their enemies, and the greatest of those enemies is the false Emperor of Mankind
Why not? They make hundreds of millions of them, why not use some?tanks seem a bit not to mechanicus for my tastes
Maybe if you want to go a bit more exotic, you could mount some on defiler-like legs or convert them to look more automated than your normal leman russ
The only constant in the universe is change, adapt or die.
Cool I think I may be able to make robots using bits of Sentinals and dreadnaughts.
Not sure how about making knights though. I guess exotic weapons like conversion beams and mole Morters etc would be cool. Dont Titan Legions get support from super heavy tanks?
So far my thoughts are
HQ - Forge Master/Fabricator General
Elites - Tech-prist assassins
Any ideas would be welcome
Read Titanicus by Dan Abnett. Aside from being the solid-gold story one usually expects from Dan Abnett, it has some great fluff about the way the Adeptus Mechanicus wage war.
The Emperor set a fire in their hearts that they might burn the iniquitous and the impure from his sight. And the light of that flame shall be as a beacon to the faithful, a light that shines in the darkest places.
The Word Bearers book Dark Apostle also has some pretty neat Mechanicus-on-Chaos fights with some unique artillery pieces and various other AdMech vehicles that you could use for inspiration. Guard is probably the easiest force to use for your purposes, possibly with Inquisitorial allies.
Cool cheers guys will grab those books in the week and have a read.
I can remember some crazy machines from the original Space Marine/Titan Leigons games plus I still have a copy of the 2nd edition "Wargear" book.
I was planning on making the more "hi-tech" stuff commonplace ie plasma weapons, melta weapons and exoctic stuff.
