As the flames of treachery spread outwards through the Imperium, Horus mobilises those forces who are loyal to him, and plots to subvert or destroy those who stand agaist him. There were some spoilers from Angel Exterminatus, but not many. As the flames of treachery spread throughout the Imperium , Horus plots to subvert or destroy all those who would stand against him. Not to say it’s badly written, it isn’t, it just smacks of being over-plotted at the sacrifice of the story. Why would he – on purpose – destroy so much of the accumulated knowledge of Mars, rather than, oh I don’t know, steal it perhaps? The Cult Mechanicus await the arrival of the Omnissiah, a prophesied physical avatar of the Machine God. Many secrets were revealed, just in time for them to be lost forever.

That said, it’s resolved in an interesting fashion, giving some hint as to the scope of the Emperor’s designs.


Mschanicum trivia or quizzes yet. I just can’t see Dorn waiting that long to deal with them. Especially if you are interested in the Heresy period. She was totally un-interesting, had no charm or did not arouse any emotion.

Any member of the Cult Mechanicus over the rank of menial will often be referred to as a tech-priest, though Magi and higher ranks are usually referred to by rank.

A wonderfully written installment to the series, with only around 30 pages of Astartes which was a refreshing change of pace. So each macroclade of this organization is composed of four cohortseach consisting of three maniples 12 maniples in total. Titan Legion Legio Mortis, now Heretic, makes an appearance. McNeill is usually great and his descriptions are truly evocative, yet, this tale didn’t connectwith me.

Kelbor-Hal’s deputy, the Fabricator Locum Kaneremained loyal to the Emperor however, which initiated a civil war on the Red Planet known as the Schism of Mars that mirrored the larger conflict raging across the galaxy.

Legion The Horus Heresy. Welcome to Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum! I have a far greater understanding of the role Titans and their Legions play in the grand scheme of the Warhammer 40, universe as well as The Mechanicum and how it is tied to The Imperium. It is a binary language, optimised for quick communication of technical data, which consists of a burst of static emitted through the bionic implants of members of the Mechanicum which cannot be understood by unaugmented humans.

Books set in the Horus Heresy mecyanicum consistently superbly written and full of pertinent “historical” background.

Adeptus Mechanicus – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum

The series is overall exceptional; easily the best work but out by Black Library to date. Not pretty at all. Tens of millennia of history, second jewel in the crown of the Imperium an’ all that. This is the first and last look we get of Mars at its zenith, before everything goes so very, mechsnicum wrong. Good filler for the Horus Heresy. It provided some really good insight into some of the characters. I enjoyed the Titan battles in this book and wished that there were more stories about them.


Nov 27, Taddow rated it really liked it Shelves: Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Oct 20, Adam Bell rated it it was amazing. I was happy to learn the author picked this phase of the Horus Heresy because he wanted an opportunity to write a female lead. Unfortunately, there are a lot of background information that are assumed to be known by the reader from the Warhammer universe, that I couldn’t recommend the book to someone unfamiliar at least with some 40k elements. The world he creates is so vivid it’s like you’re there.

Jun 22, Robert rated it it was ok. I am not quite sure I am convinced by the final plot point of the Dragon and all that transpires there, but it seems that McNeill has promised us more along those lines, if I read the epilogue correctly. Most of the early colonists’ needs were simple and very few mmechanicum have bothered to preserve the more theoretical and advanced technological information the STC contained.

Welcome to Warhammer 40k – Mechanickm

Apr 15, Kelly Charmaine Marie Flanagan rated it really liked it. Way too many characters to really enjoy the action and a “quest” story that almost got lost inside the overall plot. At the height of its splendour during the Golden Age, and even later in the anarchic Age mechwnicum StrifeMars dispatched hundreds of colony fleets into the void.
