The Adeptus Mechanicus are the keepers and manufacturers of technology for the Imperium of Mankind. It is a role they guard jealously, using their own standing armies, engines of war and god-machines. It is within their power to unleash the most arcane weaponry in the Imperium, and they do so without mercy. Grim processions of soldiers stride in perfect unison, each one a disturbing fusion of man and machine. Behind them stomp soulless automata, and towering over them are enormous walkers. An Adeptus Mechanicus army marching to war is a sight both terrifying and glorious.

Codex: Adeptus Mechanicus contains a wealth of background and rules – the definitive book for Adeptus Mechanicus collectors. Within, you’ll find:

    Please don’t sell a broken product. I hope the update to fix this comes out soon.
  • Missprints and broken links...

    Disappointing that the Onager Dunecrawler stat line is still incorrect from the codex Imperium: Index 2, even though it was in the FAQ long ago. The Sydonian Dragoons stat line is all incorrect, and various links don’t work when selected (e.g. Imperial Knight Carapace Weapons stutters and goes to the wrong page)
  • Massive misprint

    This version has a massive misprint. The entire statline for the sydonian dragoon is wrong' it has the stats of a named character or HQ choice. Will this be fixed and re issued or do I need to request a refund and get the physical copy that I know to be right?
