I currently play a Techmarine in our campaign and we are currently playing the 3 part campaign. We try to incorperate rpg moment so the game just doesnt become a game where you roll dices to kill stuff. It's challanging mainly because Spacemarines ain't knowned to sit around sipping tea and talk about "important" stuff.
Jokes aside, we try to incorperate social elements into the game to make it more fun for our group. As i said, i play a techmarine, and we have downtime where we can do stuff in the game and i was thinking of, what can techmarines build. What are they allowed to do actually. We had a discussion that they aint allowed to modifiy excisting stuff, like armour and such but can build now it's (que next planet destroyer with a big red button saying "dont push").
I have ideas of what i do like to build, having a servo-skull platform where i can place my MUI heavy bolter on to control it so i dont need to place it down with a tripod all the time, so it floats around me more like a sentry gun, well it's an idea.
But am i allowed to construct this, i know i can't do it before i get renown enough to get an servo-skull, but after?
Also Artificer Armour? As i understand it, there are really no fixed generic ones, all are "special" in their own way so is it possible to craft your own armour with the blessing of who ever you need to have, to give it your own spin? I was thinking of a MK8 armour (I love the looks of them) tailored for an Techmarine with the power unit hooked up to the internal power unit as a backup if the primary pack fails. Also maybe some other things? Are there any clear rules on how you can build stuff in the game, and which pages are the located at if so? The reason i want to build my own armour are plainly just for making your mark on the "world" having build something very unique and make it's own history and such.
I know that Techpriests have huge restrictions on creating new stuff, they can modifie but new stuff are a big no no. But as i have read in fluff and such Techmarines are the opposite. The make stuff up, not modifying?
Thanks for all the help
