Do Tech-Priests dream of electric sheep?

This is going to be a long slog getting each force up to speed so I shall endeavor to keep the hobby A.D.D. to a minimum & focus on one force at a time.

First up for reorgansing are my Adetpus Mechanicus. It’s not an overly large force as it started during the Gathering Storm with the release of Cawl & the Grand Convocation detachment which mean I could have Knights & Skitarii in one detachment.

As I’m sure you’re aware all the rules for 8th edition were leaked & readily available if you know where to look. Giddy with excitement I’ve been looking at these a lot & have been able to organise the miniatures I want to use into a workable list:

Detachment: Batallion Detachment
Faction: Imperium, Adeptus Mechanicus, Mars
Command Benefit: +3 Command Point

HQ
Belesarius Cawl: 250
Warlord

Tech-priest Dominus: 141
Omnissiah Axe, Macrostubber, Eradication Ray

TROOPS
Skitarii Vanguard: 113

  • 1x Alpha with Rad Carbine & Power Sword, Enhanced Data Tether
  • 2x Vanguard with Rad Carbine
  • 2x Vanguard with Transuranic Arquebus

Skitarii Vanguard: 67

  • 1x Alpha with Arc Pistol & Arc Maul, Enhanced Data Tether
  • 4x Vanguard with Rad Carbines

Skitarii Vanguard: 145

  • 1x Alpha with Arc Pistol & Arc Maul, Enhanced Data Tether
  • 7x Vanguard with Rad Carbines
  • 2x Vanguard with Plasma Caliver

4x Kastelan Robot: 440

  • 3x Heavy Phosphor Blaster each

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Detachment: Vanguard Detachment
Faction: Imperium, Adeptus Mechanicus, Mars
Command Benefit: +1 Command Point

HQ

Cybernetica Datasmith: 52
Gamma Pistol, Power Fist

Tech-Priest Enginseer: 52
Servo-Arm, Laspistol, Omnissiah Axe
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Detachment: Super-heavy Auxiliary
Faction: Imperium, Questor Imperialis
Command Benefit: None

LoW
Knight Paladin: 458
Rapid-fire Battle Cannon, Titanic Feet, Reaper Chainsword, 2x Heavy Stubber
Total: 1991

Luckily I don’t have too much work to do to organise it like this. In fact painting aside I’ve only got to make some arm swaps for special weapons on the Skitarii Vanguard to get the fighting fit….I may have also kitbashed an extra Dominus.

I’ve highlighted units in the list above that require painting (one melta servitor also needs doing). To give you a taste of what the army will end up looking like here’s Cawl & other finished units from the list:

Stay tuned for updates on this project.
