Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is a {PLAT} turn-based strategy game. The studio in charge of the project – Bulwark Studios – is known for the game Crowntakers.


The game is set in the dark-fantasy universe of Warhammer 40,000. As the title suggests, the player takes control of a squad of Adeptus Mechanicus members. The Adeptus Mechanicus are worshipers of the machine cult, they are also in charge of the technological development of the Imperium. The organization includes priests, engineers, mechanics, and warriors in its ranks. The members have one thing in common, they have abandoned their humanity by modifying their bodies with technology; they are slowly transforming into cybernetic monstrosities.

The plot revolves around a high ranking member of the order, Magos Dominus Faustinius from Mars, who is the leader of an expedition to the planet Silva Tenebris, where tombs containing ancient technologies lay still.

Its worth noting that the story was written by Ben Counter, a British writer renowned for many stories set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.


The {Plat} release of Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is a strategy game, in which the players take control of a small squad during tactical, turn-based skirmishes. The combat system is quite complex and requires proper unit positioning on the map, using the environment to your advantage, and making the best of the special abilities of the squad members.

The game features a wide variety of ways to modify the squad with mechanical parts, this lets the player customize the squad members to heir hearts’ content. During the turn-based skirmishes, players can use the super-enhanced senses of the Adeptus Mechanicus to gain, normally inaccessible, information on enemies and the environment.

The time between missions is spent on the deck of the Ark Mechanicus, a huge spaceship under the service of the order. There, players manage their squad and make decisions that define the way the story develops further.
