The Adeptus Mechanicus stand as the devout followers of the Omnissiah, the deity of machinery, revered across the sprawling forges of Mars. For millennia, the Tech-Priests—whose flesh has long been supplanted by steel—have safeguarded humanity’s technological relics, enshrouding their work in sacred rites. These armies, a fusion of man and machine, are unyielding in their defense of the Imperium‘s forge worlds and relentless in their interstellar quest for lost technology.
Within their imposing arsenal are the Skitarii—disciplined ranks of cybernetic soldiers, alongside formidable robots and servitors, all armed with weapons of devastating capabilities. Whether unleashing barrages of radioactive rounds or waves of burning plasma, the Adeptus Mechanicus are a force devoid of compassion, their sole purpose to annihilate those who challenge the divine machinery of the Omnissiah.
The Codex: Adeptus Mechanicus is an essential resource for those who command these metal-clad warriors in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
