I haven't posted here in a long time, longer than I realized and I thought now would be a good time. With all of the new Adeptus Mechanicus models out, and several new blogs I started following, I have been inspired to create a Dark Mechanicus army. Here is the first in many twisted creations. Excommunicate Traitoris Ordo Machinum Inquisitor Matthias Balthasar Harnak.
Inquisitor Matthias Balthasar Harnak was once a member of the Ordo Machinum on Mars. During his investigations he discovered the name Frenel. While investigating rumors of Dark Mechanicus activities he came across ancient data mentioning a house fallen during the Horus Heresy and largely expunged from Imperial and Martian records. Following up on the information he found led him to the Automnic Fraternal, a cell of House Frenel secretly operating on Martian soil. Inquisitor Harnak was discovered but rather than kill him he was turned over to the Memnopliad, a group within House Frenel dealing with mind manipulation and brain augmentation. Through torturous operations and organic reprogramming Inquisitor Harnak was turned into an agent of House Frenel. Harnak was used as a tool for eliminating those Mechanicus factions that opposed the Automnic Fraternal under the guise of the Ordo Machinum until his discovery and excommunication from the order. After the Ordo Machinum discovered and purged the Automnic Fraternal from Mars Harnak fled through a network of House Frenel safehouses till he was able to reach one of their Forge Worlds near the Eye of Terror. There he made contact with House Frenel directly and was taken to Karchemesh. Matthias Harnak, as befits one of Inquisitor stock, has over the years worked his way into the inner circles of House Frenel. Through his years of service to House Frenel Harnak has been surgically alter by the Magos Biologis he served to a more resiliant and deadly form. There is little left of Inquisitor Matthias Balthasar Harnak's original body or mind. Only his brain and iron will have survived the rigorous alterations of House Frenel.
