I for one have always wanted the Adeptus mechanicus to have their own codex and be an official playable race, what do you guys think? In the books the have a lot of units that are unique to them, they also have a large amount of different tank variants, (mars varients).

Sounds interesting, but what would be done with the Adeptus Mechanicus units already integrated into both the IG and SM codex?

I say yes since their really different and would play all different aswell with all the cyborgs. Counterpart is that they rely on titans who don't come in normal battles.

Adeptus mechanicus have pacts with both ig and sm, and they dont use techmarines amongst their ranks so that wouldnt be a prob, and the ig books dont include techpriest , and if they did they would be different since the mars units would be more specialized and powerful (most likely) there are plenty of units the adeptus mechanicus could use instead of te ones alread used by the other forces of the imperium, they also have better servitors in the books =D

I have been hoping that the Mechanicum would finally get a codex. Now whether or not that ever happens? Being that the Mechanicum's Armor and Weapons have been used by all factions of the Imperium they should have had a book long time ago. Plus being able to turn the Mechanicum units in to chaos stuff would be cool too. Alas there still is no mechanicum codex 600 pages long. too bad.:deal:

i think its plausible that they might soon. right now gw is working on the lizardmen for warhammer and they have been doing alot with the orks but once thats done and they figure out they have nothing to do anymore they might think about making a codex.

There is an "unofficial codex" that someone made, its actually really well balanced, problem is that its kind of hard to make the models =D

can you imagine using electro priests :eek:

Here is the link to it, it doesnt have all the units, personally, i just made a space marine army with an iron father for the hq, techmarines and servitors for elites, and the new cannons for the heavy support, for the troops i used normal sm with adeptus mechanicus colors =D
