Default Why No Techpriests?

Since I am in the process of increasing the size of my armoured guard force, I have been having a good look at the Techpriest Enginseer option. However, I am yet to find any fielded in any of the recent Mech lists here on TO, and many of them have been posted by experienced players.
As far as I can tell, the Techpriest seems like a good option: The ability to repair damaged vehicles would definitely come in useful, and with a unit of servitors, they can make a reasonable (not brilliant, but reasonable) CC unit, and there are many cases where I would rather have them die in combat than my tanks.
So is there something that I don't know? Why have I not seen any in the Mech Guard lists?
