About mechanicus ships
Quick to incorporate recently-rediscovered
technology before it is approved for widespread use,
Adeptus Mechanicus vessels place great reliance on
archaeotech that have much higher power
requirements and correspondingly smaller overload
tolerances and redundancy than those equipping
comparable Imperial Navy vessels. Their ships are
crewed with a very high proportion of repair
servitors and tech adepts intimately familiar with the
workings of their vessel. Mechanicus vessels always
add +1D6 to their rolls when attempting to repair
critical damage. However, because these ships are
commonly relied upon to test untried and sometimes
Xenos technology for extended periods of time,
Mechanicus vessels will on occasion suffer adverse,
unanticipated consequences that in some cases may
endanger the entire ship and its crew.
Mechanicus ship components
Mechanicus ship spirits and past histories
Extended Duty: The Quest for Knowledge can be long and arduous, sometimes seeing the fleet deep in unexplored space far away from logistical support for exceedingly long periods. Roll a D6 for each Mechanicus capital ship. On a 1 it takes D3 damage to Hull Integrity, on a 2 it suffers -10 Command to Lock On Target or Put Your Backs To It extended actions. Rolls of 3+ have no effect.
Xenos Logic: Due to unforeseen phenomena, the complex workings within the capital ships of the Adeptus Mechanicus have become unreliable at best and catastrophic at worst. At the end of warp translation or beginning of void combat roll D10. On 1 random single essential component is unpowered, 2 single random supplemental component is damaged or 3 single random supplemental component is unpowered. 4+ no effect.
Sacred Vessel: The ship is an example of or contains much valued archaeotech and must be protected at any cost. Choose one Mechanicus capital ship in your fleet. This vessel cannot be crippled or destroyed. (+1/-1)
5 The Prize: Reliable sources have confirmed that an enemy ship contains an extremely valuable example of
archaeotech, or possibly remnants of a working STC system! Even if the ship is only crippled, it will grant an easier venture to capture it. Nominate one enemy
capital ship. You must cripple or destroy it. If the ship explodes, no renown is gained or lost. (+1/-2)
Mimic Drive: The Adeptus Mechanicus encounter partial STC plans for a drive capable of imitating the signature of a capital ship.
Experimental Ship: Recovered ancient technology or alien artefacts are sometimes retrofitted to a ship to change its performance in one way or another. Sometimes the results are significant, but very rarely can such devices be accommodated without significant cost or sacrifice to the vessel. This vessel has been recently fitted with an experimental system that has not yet been tested operationally. These modifications are in addition to any refits taken normally by a Mechanicus vessel. Roll a D6 on the following two tables to see how the ship has been altered (Re-roll any result that cannot be applied).
1 All weapons (except ordnance) increase maximum range by +15cm.
2 The ship gains +1 Shield.
3 All turrets re-roll misses when defending against ordnance.
4 The ship can turn an additional +45 degrees.
5 All friendly vessels within 15cm gain an additional +1 leadership when the enemy is on special orders (max 10).
6 Dorsal or prow lances ignore shields on a roll of 6.
D6 Side Effect
1 Weapons battery firepower and lance strength reduced by 50% (rounding up).
2 The ship loses 2 hit points.
3 The ship loses 2 turrets (this is after adding the +1 turret all Mechanicus vessels are equipped with).
4 The ship must move an additional 5cm before it can turn.
5 The ship loses 5cm speed.
6 Dorsal or prow lances can only hit targets on a roll of 6.
