This Fan Codex represents an Adeptus Mechanicus questing or exploratory army. This force is suited to the more exploration and techno-archeological nature of the expedition. Here the Tech-Priests are often in search of lost relics from the Dark Age of Technology, such as Standard Template Construct (STC) artifacts. In these missions they often encounter hostile forces (usually determined not to give up such items whether they understand the importance of the device or not), and thus their expedition forces must also be ready to fight. The Mechanicus may also accompany other forces of the Imperium when it suits their own inscrutable purposes. However, the Cult Mechanicus is very guarded about their sequestered information, and few dare to question them.

The Cult Mechanicus use a number of special rules that may be common to more than one model, as specified in the individual entries that follow. Given here are the details of those rules.

The Cult Mechanicus is on a never-ending search for lost technology from the Dark Age of Mankind, but is also always on the lookout for old or alien weapons and vehicles to study. The Tech-Priests will have instructed all members of the expeditionary force to be ready to act if they encounter any of the items of interest, and to quickly alert them for their inspection and/or retrieval. When fielding a pure Cult Mechanicus force, roll a D6 after both sides have deployed (including infiltrators,) but before the game starts. On a roll of a 4+ your force has been instructed by the High Lords of their Forgeworld to undergo a Tech Quest. Pick one model from the enemy forces, and write it down on a piece of paper, keeping this chosen model's identity from your opponent. The Cult Mechanicus forces have information that this individual, walker or vehicle is using or possesses technology that the Lords of Mars want to inspect. That model will be the target of the Tech Quest, and all active members of the Mechanicus Cult will fight to their death to obtain intel on this item. If the target is removed from the table, killed or destroyed for any reason; replace the model with an iconic marker to represent the item of importance (If it is a vehicle that is wrecked, there is no need to replace the vehicle or walker with a marker, but your opponent should be informed that the model is the target of the Tech Quest.) If the target is a vehicle and it explodes, a crater will still be placed under the marker as normal. If any character from the Adeptus Mechanicus force can get to and remain within 2" of the marker or wrecked model until the start of their next turn, their side will gain an additional Objective or Kill Point in scenarios that use Objectives or Kill Points to determine the winner. Note that an Adeptus Mechanicus model does not have to survive the duration of the battle, as information on the prized target can be scanned and relayed back to superiors. Additionally, if the Quest target were to fall back for any reason, place the marker where the model was before they made their fallback movement; they have accidently or purposely dropped the device in order to escape quickly. If the target model survives the duration of the game the enemy force is awarded an additional Objective or Kill Point.

The Adeptus Mechanicus are a private cult; keeping to their Forge Worlds to produce deadly pieces of art and war in the name of the Omnissiah, only leaving their planets on Tech Quests and orders of great importance to their cause. When preparing for a Tech Quest or battle, the Cult will only take the most powerful tools and members at their disposal to insure success and bring themselves the blessing of the Machine God. All Cult Mechanicus vehicles have a Complexity Value or "CV". A Complexity Value represents the Mechanicus' genius within the gift of the machine; a work of technology that either contains several intensely tenacious Machine Spirits or is so complex with overlapping backup measures that it can take a monstrous amount of damage before actually failing to work correctly. When attempting to damage a vehicle with a Complexity Value of 2, for example, the first two Glancing hits, Penetrating hits, failed Difficult Terrain Tests and/or Dangerous Terrain Tests and all of their effects will be completely ignored. It is a good idea to keep track of the remaining Complexity Values a vehicle has on a sheet of paper or with physical markers on the table. Once the Complexity Value of the vehicle has reached zero, terrain tests as well as Glancing and Penetrating hits will work themselves out as normal. Complexity Values can only be regained once they're lost by repair via a Servoarm or Servo-harness. Though a Warhound can never be repaired in this manner.

Heavy Weapons Teams count as 2 models for the purposes of transport capacity but otherwise is treated as a single model.

Machine Spirits of the Imperial vehicles such as the Leman Russ or Chimera will aid the Imperial Guard or Imperial Navy in their repairs on a fulltime basis. Tech-Priest Transmechanics will oft follow a similar path as Enginseers, but are typically less inclined to do so. Their knowledge of the Machine Spirit doesn't typically rest within a single facet, their ability to learn the ins and outs of no less than tens of thousands of devices is what sets them apart from the Enginseers. This ability is a much needed asset when the Cult sets out on a Tech Quest. Something as simple as a repair to excavation equipment is a mere inconvenience to a true Tech-Priest Transmechanic and isn't beyond the capabilities of an Enginseer. Where Transmechanics truly shine is in the heat of battle. Fleeting from war machine to war machine, the Transmechanic must use his vast knowledge of everything mechanical to keep the Cult's goals from fading while staring deep into the enemy's eye.

Tech-Priests are possibly the most important cog in the forever-churning Adeptus Mechanicus. Filling the extreme roles in the Cult, Tech-Priests are by far some of the most knowledgeable beings of their respective Forge worlds. The Tech-Priests with the vastest of knowledge known as Transmechanics are no exception. Filling various roles within the Imperium as well as the Mechanicus, Tech-Priest Transmechanics are blessed by the Omnissiah through their work. While very similar to the Tech-Priest Enginseer, most Transmechanic's knowledge is typically broader. An Enginseer's knowledge is quite vast, but is typically tuned to a specific area of technical knowledge. Those that are quite capable on the battlefield or simply have a knack for the inner workings of the machinery and

SPECIAL RULES Independent Character Knowledgeable Disciples: The Transmechanic's force is an impressive one, indeed. While their knowledge is plentiful within communications technology they are often more knowledgeable of repairs than even the Enginseers of their Forgeworld. Selected knowledge is typically given to the followers of the Transmechanic's Tech Quests either through teaching or the more typical data upload. All units in the Transmechanic's force capable of repairing damaged vehicles get a +1 bonus to their repair rolls. Servitor Retinue: The Tech-Priest Transmechanic may be accompanied by a retinue of Cult Servitors as described on their entry on page 10. The retinue will follow all of the characteristics, restrictions, rules and point values per their entry.

In previous times, Imperial Robots were the jurisdiction of an obscure branch of the Adeptus Mechanicus. During this early time, entire cohorts of Imperial Robots were spread across the armies of the Imperial Guard (then-called the Imperial Army) and the Space Marines. On at least one occasion, Robots were made honorary members of a Space Marine chapter for exemplary service. While supremely loyal, the more mindless elements of the Cult Mechanicus require constant supervision. Specially trained Enginseers are assigned as overseers for these units, guiding them in conflicts and directing them against enemy threats.

Imperial Robots are the living embodiment of the Machine God, whose spirit animates these ancient constructs of rare metals and circuitry. They stalk the battlefield, implacable and deadly in their advance. Each Robot has a primitive artificial brain of bio-plasm, specially maintained for centuries by the brightest Genetors of the finest Legios of the galaxy. The art of growing new units of Robot cortex dates back prior to the Emperor's First Crusade and has become an almost lost one now, and thus each Robot is a near priceless tech-relic in its own right. Their superior firepower and combat effectiveness outweigh the risk of loss however. And all members of the Cult Mechanicus venerate these loyal and powerful devices; they are a source of inspiration to the faithful in battle.

SPECIAL RULES Robot: Robots have the Fearless and Slow and Purposeful special rules. Robots may move and fire up to two weapons, or stay stationary and fire all its weapons. Robots may not enter transport vehicles due to their large size. Bio-mechanical: Due to some of the mecha-organic components used in Robot design, Robots can be wounded by Sniper Rifles and other items that effect living creatures. They can never be Pinned by them, though. Guidance: The Maniple may be led by a single TechPriest Enginseer. See the separate stat line above for details.

illuminate the area. Certain Tech-Magos and high ranking officials have special logic engines that slave Servo Skulls to a particular owner. Servo-skulls are used throughout all the different organizations of the Imperium of Man, and each is built to perform a certain task. Some are designed for military roles, and among these some are built with enhanced optical sensors to allow them to fulfill a role as a reconnaissance scout. Servo-skulls are often used by Inquisitors and Inquisitor Lords as Familiars. In this case they are mentally linked to the Inquisitor through psychic or cybernetic means, allowing him to control them and see and hear through their senses. A Servo-Skull that is part of a swarm becomes so only in dire need on Tech Quests. A Tech Priest will tirelessly use Servo-Skulls individually during time of excavation and research. But when battle rises over the Cult forces, Servo-Skulls are put into action using their confusing movements and overwhelming numbers "to overtake enemies.

Servo-skulls are drone-like robotic devices, specifically human skulls outfitted with electronic components suited to their mental strengths or as the Cult deems as needed. They utilize embedded antigravity field generators to allow them to hover and drift bodiless through the air. They are fashioned using robotic components from the skulls of loyal adepts of the Adeptus Terra and other pious Cult servants so that they may continue their work even after death. Presumably to have one's skull chosen to serve as a Servo-skull is a great honour in the Mechanicus. They form an important niche in the Cult's work, serving as everything from auto-scribes that copy down important conversations and confessions of prisoners, to simple moving torches, hovering about their charge with candles and lanterns to
