    Just a guess, but I think not. I believe you keep all equipment in the Enginseer's case, his power armour.

    Its in the IG FAQ on the GW site. The Honorifica Imperialis does not affect the Enginseer's 3+ armour save.

    The FAQ on the GW site really doesn't answer this question. As someone asked about what would happen to an Ogryn with the Honorifica, the responce was a sarcastic "why would you want to?"

    My guess is that the save would drop to 5+. But why would you want to do this anyways? There are many better choices to take the Honorifica, like a priest or sanctioned psyker.

    I refer you now to Chapter Approved section of GW website, and the IG codex FAQ.

    http://uk.games-workshop.com/40kuniverse/w...alguardqav4.pdf


    And I quote:

    Q: If a model with better characteristics takes the Honorifica Imperialis, are these examples reduced to the level of a Heroic Senior Officer?
    EXAMPLES: Ogryn Bone'ead: Does he lose a point of toughness and strength? Enginseer: Is his 3+ armour save reduced to a 5+?

    A: There really is no point in giving the medal to an Ogryn, I would suggest that you assume the medal has a "humans only" qualification in the armoury. In other cases the model with the medal adopts the new profile but saves, equipment and special rules are unaffected. A Techpriest Enginseer would still have his armour save, for example.

    I agree that it is not just a human only item becuase it says under the entry that it is called the Honorifica Imperialis Mundanus if it is not issued to a guardsmen. So an enginseer can take it, and I don't think that there is any reason his save would drop.
