Default Doctrines to use for an Adeptus Mechanicus army

Hey!

I was looking in the latest North American WD magazine and there's an army of the Adeptus Mechnicus made by Dave Taylor. It a nice army but he's using the Legion of the Damned rules for it. He mentioned some doctrine he could have use but I was wondering what would you use to make it fluffy and challenging (and since it means a helluva conversion, something that makes it and elite force too with, so less models! )

Dave Taylor suggests:
  • Mechanized
  • Enginseers
  • Carapace Armour
  • Cyber-Enhacement

I would go with:
  • Mechanized
  • Enginseers
  • Veterans
  • Cyber-Enhacement
  • Grenadiers or Circoncript platoons ?

What do you think? ??? I need to choose between that or a Veteran Army!

I'd agree with Dave Taylor.

I would agree with Wargamer.. who agrees with Dave Taylor... Those are more appropriate doctrines.

Dave Taylor's and Chem Inhalers... seems to me that the adeptus mechanicus would have some program to control their troops... just a suggestion, also to keep with the fluff i reckon their would be at least 2 engineseers in a mechanicus army.. so veterans would be useless.

If your going for fluff then go for Dave Tailor's choices. The army looks like it won't do too well on the field, but it would be quite cool.

*Shakes hand to the winner, Dave Taylor*

Well, I'll study that and see what I prefer... and the idea to add the chem-inhaler is interesting!

Cheers!

A mechanicus army was prestented in the latest US white dwarf using the LATD army list. Since you are a canadian thu'ook i would pick that up and see if that army is the kind you would like to have.
