Greetings, Guardsmen!

Today, we come to you with a story that embodies the generous and giving spirit of our allies in the Adeptus Mechanicus.

It is the solemn duty of the devotees of the Omnissiah to attend to your wargear and vehicles with the same loving attention that your Commissar attends to your discipline. Tech-Priests are always there to inform you just how you have offended the machine spirit of your lasgun, to provide repairs once the correct forms have been filled in, and to find fulfilling new lives for unruly and disobedient Guardsmen.*

As all troopers know, the Adeptus Mechanicus ensures that the servants of the Emperor are the first to benefit from the latest innovations and discoveries. Nothing brings a Tech-Priest more joy than ensuring a Guardsman is properly equipped. It is said that the Skitarii legions donate their legs to unfortunate orphans, and take to battle with antiquated muskets in order to make more lasguns available to Guardsmen.

The latest Adeptus Mechanicus transport embodies their charity perfectly! In order to better provide the Astra Militarum with solid, reliable wheels and treads, the Skorpius Dunerider uses primitive hover-tech of the kind used by our forefathers. While it may seem quaint to Guardsmen familiar with wonders like the Baneblade, to the Adeptus Mechanicus, it is more than sufficient for their needs.

We’re sure you are wondering how to show gratitude and solidarity with your cybernetic brethren! Have no fear – your commanding officers have bravely volunteered to have the seats removed from all Astra Militarum transports.** Truly, the bonds between Terra and Mars have not been stronger since the days of the Great Crusade!

++ Thought For The Day: The Tools of our Salvation are Faith and Bullets. ++

* To learn more about opportunities for service with the Adeptus Mechanicus, feel free to contravene a direct order from your Commissar.

** These will then be melted down to make legs for more Skitarii warriors. Thus does the great war machine of the Imperium churn onwards!
