Forge World Focus: Metalica

One of the most exciting features of the new Adeptus Mechanicus codex is rules for seven different forge worlds, allowing you to customise your collection more than ever before with powerful and thematic new abilities. This week, we’ll be previewing what the forge world rules mean for your army in our daily previews of Codex: Adeptus Mechanicus in advance of the pre-order this Saturday:

When you think of the Adeptus Mechanicus, mobility might not be the first word that comes to mind – yet the forces of Metalica make for a mobile force, capable of advancing rapidly while suppressing the foe with a withering hail of fire.

Metalica’s forge world dogma is Relentless March:

This is a versatile dogma that is superb for the line infantry of the Adeptus Mechanicus, allowing your Skitarii Vanguard and Skitarii Rangers to quickly close in on the optimum firing range for their weapons.

Best Units

As we’ve said above, Skitarii Rangers benefit from being able to advance and use their rapid fire weapons. Throw in the Protector Doctrina Imperative and you’ll all but mitigate your reduced accuracy for doing so!


The Tech-Priest Dominus is a great leader for the Metalica army. As well as allowing you to take advantage of the powerful Ordered Efficiency Warlord Trait, the Adamantine Arm adds some much-needed power in melee and has the potential to catch enemy combat characters off guard!

Metalica is the army for you if you want to keep your forces mobile while maintaining a steady fusillade of firepower. Come back tomorrow when we’ll be checking out Lucius, the indomitable armoursmiths of the Adeptus Mechanicus.
