I was curious if the Tech Adepts of Mars had their own "inquisition". I know that it probably isn't the Ordo Xenos or Ordo Hereticus, but I want to know how they deal with their problems.
The reason that I ask is because in the Necron Codex it states that the ever-secretive Adepts are possibly going through a techno-heresy withing their ranks. Corteswain- a survivor of a Necron attack- returned to Mars half insane and preaching of a run-in with the 'True Machine God' and is arguing everything that the Mechanicus Cult once preached. The result is a schism forming within the ranks.
Obviously the Adepts wouldn't stand for this, so my question is: how would they wage a secret war like this. How would they kill eachother as efficiently as possible without disturbing production/research and without drawing in other Imperial forces.
I know that they have their own armies, but I doubt that hoardes of servitors would be the best option for them (friendly fire, messy business, not imaginative enough)
If there is a seperate force, what army would be best to use for it? Ordo Hereticus, Ordo Malleus, or something else?
The Adeptus Mechanicus certainly has its own doctrinal factions like the Inquisition.. But actually have some super all powerful secret police unit.. I don't think so. Naturally, there's internal policing, but I don't think there's any uber elite inquisition style thing to do it. Serious heresy in the Adeptus Mechanicus is the domain of the Ordo Herreticus, minor deviations of belief just cause infighting.
As for how fighting within the Adeptus is waged.. Assassination attempts, bomb servitors, high tech 'accidents' and the occasional outright gunfight or skirmish would be my guess.
I would agree with Mantis ....accidents. lots and lots of accidents. Remember work safe or worker safety is unknown to the mechanicus. The forge worlds are some of the most horrendious places in the galaxy. Polution everywhere, miles and miles of discarded and unusable stuff such as buildings, hab units, broken machienery. These are not nice places to be unless you are a tech-priest. So I could see lots of accidents happening. Cat-walks falling, plasma reactors melting down, machienery blowing up. Take the worst industrial accidentsof our day ( ie chenerybol, bridges falling, 9/11 ( ie skyscrapers falling down) times it by about a million and thats what happens on forge worlds.
FluffMaster on a mission to turn people to the Sisters of battle, yes folks it's all about SoB squads in Repressors with lots of flamer templates for the win.
