In the grim dark of the far-off future, the line between man and machine has certainly blurred. Cyborg implants help the servants of the Emperor with their everyday tasks, from filing things in the grand libraries to taking on the Heretic.

Janitors in the 41st Millennium have the coolest gear. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but every time something new comes out for the Legio Custodes, it just reinforces my thoughts on the matter. They’ve got some new Aquilon Terminators you can pick up. Also, the Sisters of Silence hav...
