I would NOT want to undergo any surgery in the 41st millennium.

Sweet Magos Biologis.

I wonder if he's Adeptus or Dark Mechanicus? That seems to be a mutant/cultist he's operating on, and the man is not well restrained.

Of course he is Dark Mechanicus! i mean look at it!!!! he forgot to light the holy incense, or apply the sacred oils!  I can't tell in a still image, but safe to assume he is also not re-sighting the songs of mending in binary chant.

Well, all those things could be off-panel! We don't know!

And I'd always assumed the DarkMech had swapped most of their holy chants for "Fuck Mars, seriously, screw those guys, who needs them".

Some do, some don,t... depends on the Hertek.  A good example of how different Herteks can vary;  A good example of this is Noman Ryne; he is a non choas worshipping heretek, but is also for the free distrubution of information.  So he is basically a person running around teaching unsantioned lessions of the machine to people.

I wasn't referring to Hereteks in general, but Dark Mechanicus specifically. The Dark Mechanicus is limited to the rebel branch that was essentially dragged along with the Chaos Space Marines to keep all their gear running in the giant pit of unreality where they live (and boy, those guys must have it rough). Although I'm sure even the DarkMech has numerous different sects and sub-cults depending on what Legion they're most closely aligned with, Chaotic leaders they've fallen in with, and random acts of Warp-muckery that might have influenced their teachings.

I'm pretty sure hating Mars and the Loyalists who absurdly claim the Emperor is the Omnissiah is a requirement to join up with the Dark Mechanicus.

Of course, there are countless other "Hereteks" who would be ordinary Techpriests but for some political foible or minor dispute with Martian dogma - it's a pretty big galaxy - but most of those wouldn't be caught dead stitching up a Chaos cultist.

I think the Dark Mechanicus is just a misunderstanding.  I think any group or cult of Hereteks would be considered working in the Dark Mechanicus, even thoa there not a unified force or even friendly to each other.  I think it is just a Adeptus Mechanicus form of branding applied to where ever, however i will acknowledge original Dark Mechanicus was "Founded" by the initial tech priests who followed Horus into chaos, but its just a superficial tittle applied to Traitors of the machine god i think.
