In this episode, we talk about the Cult Mechanicus, part two of our podcast about the armies of the Mechanicum or Omnissiah. If you have ever thought of running  Cult Mechanicus or a War Convocation, or play against them, this is the podcast for you.  We talk about the story and background of the Cult Mechanicus, the models and aesthetics, how the different units function in the game, and how they work on the table. Finally, we discuss the War Convocation, a great mixture of Cult Mechanicus and Skitarii.The Battlehosts Podcast
