    you can use cadians for *any* imperial guard in the universe.



    colors? same as the tech priests i'd assume.

    i think black gobbo game some examples for a Machine Cult army (doctrines/models). basically you'd use Enginseers, Carapace, Bionics, etc...

    i'd be super expensive (point wise)

    but that doesn't mean you gotta do that.

    To be really fluffy you should use at least bionics and enginseers for obvious reasons. I, however, think that the best way to show off a mechanicus army is in the conversions. I'm not saying that you have to convert ALL of the guardsmen, :) but the sergeants and officers would look really good with extensive bionics, maybe mechanicus style hoods and rebreathers etc. You could also do things like using servitors instead of heavy weapon crews and such.
    The colours of the mechanicus I hear is red and grey, and there's apparently a reason for this though I don't know what it is.

    Miscellaneous links:
    The Black Goblin has some Adeptus Mechanicus banners that you could use, either as is or for inspiration.
    There's a mailing list for the Mechanicus here.
    Agis Neugebauer has some nice servitor conversions.
    98% of the teenage population does or has tried smoking pot.
    The other 2% are smart enough to question the 'science' behind that number...
    And it's spelled EMPEROR!

    also FW has a special Mars pattern hull for the Leman russ, there are a few coloured drawing in IA volume 1 about the Skitari armoured forces.

    Also, I believe if you check the US Imperial Guard website (and only the US site), in the painting section there is a long list of camo patterns for tanks, amongst them are I believe two different Mars camo patterns.

    With Mars being red and all I would think that different shades of red and maybe black would be the best colors that you could choose for this type of army.
