We all know that Iron Hands want to be more machine like pg 2 of our codex even has a quote made by an Iron Hand. Strange scenarios can result from their hatred of weakness and wanting to be more machine like with the wise and cunning Deciever out and about. Is game workshop giving us a hint with this quote on the second page of our codex or am I just thinking to hard?
I am not talking about a new codex, I am talking about the potential for the Iron Hands to suffer a similar faith of the necrontyr. If you check out lexicanum info on the Iron Hands and then look at the Deceiver info you can see how this chapter can easily be fooled into working for the Deceiver.
i suppose it might be possible that some of the Iron Fists could be tricked into getting Necronificated, but i don't think they'd go that route. the Necrontyr didn't want to become machines; they wanted immortality... and gave up their sentience to do so. the Iron Fists would love to become completely machine, but i'd imagine they'd see the costs of making a deal with the C'tan as being a little to high. not a likely thing IMHO, but i suppose it could happen.
who says the pariahs arent former iron hands?
You have taken your thought one step too far... Iron Hands don't like physical weakness. On the other hand though they are dedicated to the Emperor... I can't see how they can be "fooled" to work under the Necrontyr...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
They may be dedicated to the Emperor, but if they really revered the Emperor that much, they wouldn't immediately deface the bodies that he worked so hard to build for them.
I could foresee the Deceiver, who has aeons' worth of experience tricking species far more subtle than Space Marines, gently leading the Iron Hands down a slippery slope, making difficult choices, but never straying from the intent given to them by the Emperor.
The Iron Hands, after all, despise the forces of the Warp, as do the C'Tan. Even a simple disguise as a high-ranking member of Ad-Mech, promising new, stronger mechanization techniques would likely be enough to sway the Iron Hands.
That's one of the ultimate downfalls of the Space Marines. Being only fifteen-years old emotionally, despite being mentally centuries old, they can get jerked around pretty easily.
