Would it be breaking fluff if a Adeptus Mechanicus Magos turn to worship Tzeentch as part of the Quest for Knowledge?
Or are they so focused on the Omnissiah that they could care less about Tzeentch?
No, a Tech Priest turning to the worship of Tzeentch is actually a very plausible and common occurrence (as far as Tech Priests turning to Chaos go). The most frequent form that Tzeentchian schisms take among the Adeptus Mechanicus is as covens in pursuit of hidden knowledge or that favour innovation and creativity over the worship of the Omnissiah. They have been sighted in a few Black Library books, including the Soul Drinkers series and Grey Knights. In many cases, the Omnissiah is used as a euphemism for the Changer of Ways in order to prevent suspicion, and I suspect that even amongst the Dark Mechanicus there are splits over how things should be done, in a similar manner to cult Chaos Marine armies. I could imagine enslaved Tech Priests with the Mark of Khorne :tongue:
