The Adeptus Mechanicus is an organization that features in Warhammer 40,000.
The Adeptus Mechanicus were an organization and cult that formed in Mars in the period when mankind had begun to colonise space. During the era of the Age of Strife, the various colonies became separated from one another with the inhabitants of Mars gradually evolving to become worshippers of ancient technology. This led to the formation of a formalised religion that worshipped the Machine God with its adherents becoming the Cult Mechanicus.
