More daftness. They've had this machine for 10,000+ years and nobody ever let slip to the Mechanicus?New Supposedly they've got an old standard template construct machine from before the Imperium.
but it also irradiates them because its damaged, hence the protective suits with extra life support (probably something to do with those cables)Supposedly they've got an old standard template construct machine from before the Imperium.
Booty is the new bountyThey look cool (if a bit "Infinity"). The robotic snake stapled to all their heads weirds me out a bit, I'm curious what the background for that is?
Also, is it me or is N17 the "Gluteus Maximus" edition? Noticed it on the Escher and Goliath and here again, all rock-hard clenched cheeks... The pucker factor must be off the charts in the underhive!
I thought they looked very much like the Borg from Star Trek. In fact it’s like they nicked the entire design concept from Star Trek!Must say, I'm not a fan. Too "Infinity" for my liking. They're supposed to be citizens of the Imperium.
Time to visit The Sump?More daftness. They've had this machine for 10,000+ years and nobody ever let slip to the Mechanicus?
The old fluff made sense where they simply made better quality weapons than the other houses. Lower hive houses manufacturing Xenos tech and Mechanicus level tech just doesn't fit well into the grander universe. Someone butchered the fluff for N17 good and proper.
Well if they were subtle about it and didn’t use it to generate really powerful weaponry and technology and then walk about brazenly with all of that on displ... oh.
like most of the hive it may have advantages but it is a double edged sword, literally bleeding radiation into most all of van saar's territory. also it doesn't contain any NEW designs the Ad Mech doesn't already have, I mean the van saar aren't creating land raider or storm talon variants but rather plasma cannons and environmental protection suits, maybe gear from planetary colonial times, nothing to secure an advantage in 40k. it may just not be worth the Ad mechs time and effort to recover the damaged and barely usable schematics in a dangerous irradiated stc.
