An interesting servitor idea.


Recommended Posts

So I’ve been thinking of converting up an Ordo Xenos inquisitor and had the funky idea of making some servitors made out of xenos species. Like the idea of a Tau gun servitor or genestealer close combat servitor. Is this a fun ide or pure heresy or both? I’ll have to raid the bitz box and give it a go!

From an ingame perspective, it‘s worth noting that to the orthodox Mechanicum, a xenos base for a servitor is apparently  considered vile  tech heresy.

The human form is considered the foundation for the Great Work, a divine template, weak as the flesh may be. So, using a xenos is literally anathema. 

Or at least, that is the reaction given to a servitor made from an ork body in o’Neil’s „Priests of Mars“

 

Once you go radical, all bets are off, of course ;)

Considering the Ork-turned-servitor may be spreading spores wherever it goes, potentially starting Ork infestations on countless Imperial worlds and facilities, the Orthodox Tech-priests' disgust is fully justified, as is a decision to sentence the servitor's creator to excommunication and execution.

For the radical, AND his opponents. As stated, using an Ork-turned-servitor may subject countless Imperial worlds and facilities to a Waaagh! Tyranids also serve as psychic beacons to the Hive Mind (as described in the Ciaphas Cain novels Duty Calls and The Greater Good, republished in the Ciaphas Cain: Defender of the Imperium and Ciaphas Cain: Savior of the Imperium omnibuses), potentially drawing a Hive Fleet to their location. In the face of such dire threats, a Puritan Inquisitor- who may also be an Orthodox Tech-priest, as described in Aaron Demski-Bowden's novel The Emperor's Gift- may order the radical's home planet subjected to Exterminatus, and be fully justified in doing so.

It would bring me great joy to have a Drukhari servitor and fluff wise have him still sentient but with no control over his actions and have him only used for menial tasks like cleaning the inquisitors quarters
