We have finally caught up to my backlog and now I’m statting up monsters every week for the Warhammer 40k D&D 5E Hack!

Last week I got more into the whole “reskin statblocks” bit for xenos and standard NPCs (along with some Space Marine statblocks) and today we’re delving back into the technology side of things. Plus a Librarian for good measure.

BUT FIRST–what are those first 10 hack posts about? PLAYERS!

First post general rules, the Corruption ability score, new skills, a hit selection system, races, character backgrounds, the psyker feat.
Second post the (shared) Resources party attribute, the Lucky Bastard feat, new martial weapons, new ranged weapons, new extremis weapons, power armor
Third post Apothecary monk archetype, Chaplains, and the Imperial Guard Veteran archetype
Fourth post Assault space marine barbarian archetype and the Imperial Commissar fighter archetype
Fifth post Psyker sorcerer archetype, Grey Knight warlock archetype, and Sisters of Battle monk archetype
Sixth post ASSASSINORUM CLADES! My favorite. ❤
Seventh post Inquisitors (warlock archetype) and Grey Knight space marines (paladin archetype)
Eighth post Sneaky space marines (I am Alpharius) and Rogue Trader bards!
Ninth post Techmarine mad scientists and Tech-Priest scrappers (both are classes with free PDFs)
Tenth post One of the underappreciated bits of Abnett’s work (Enuncia; note that I took a few liberties with it) and doling out the chaos template before the monster statblock posts begin

Right then! Remember that these are NPCs good to have some better equipment so dole out cooler weapons from Hack #2!

Badass Tech Priest/other Mechanicus. This is an easy one–take an Archmage, remove time stop, give it a mechadendrite or two, a couple nice guns, 2-3 attacks a round, and a servo-arm. If you want some servoskulls you should probably check out the Tech-NPC post and work out some summaries of your own, but basically treat them as familiar homunculi with the construct type and no poison attack.

Mechadendrite. You can use your mechadendrite to directly interact with human-constructed machinery and while doing so have advantage on Intelligence (Technology) checks made with a device. In addition, you may use it to make melee weapon attacks (using your spell attack bonus) with a reach of 10 feet, dealing 1d8 + your Intelligence modifier bludgeoning damage on a successful hit.
Servo-Arm. Your servo-arm can be used to pick up and hold objects but nothing that requires fine dexterity (such as typing on a dataslate or soldering a pair of goggles), treating its Strength score as 20. In addition, you may spend a bonus action to use it to make a melee weapon attack (using your spell attack bonus) against a creature within 5 feet, dealing 1d12 + 5 bludgeoning damage on a successful hit.

TECHMARINE

Large humanoid (adeptus astartes), any
Armor Class 17 (Mark VI power armor)

Action Surge (1/short rest). On the techmarine’s turn, he can take one additional action on top of his regular action and a possible bonus action.
Autofire. As a bonus action, the techmarine can fire his bolt rifle with disadvantage.
Powered Armor. The techmarine’s carrying weight doubles, he reduces all falling damage by 30, and he’s immune to all gas-based attacks (while the suit remains unbreached). In addition, he ignores the first 5 points of damage whenever he takes damage that isn’t psychic.
Second Wind (1/short rest). On his turn, the techmarine can use a bonus action to regain 1d10+2 hit points.
Servo-Arm. The techmarine can use his servo-arm to pick up and hold objects but nothing that requires fine dexterity (such as typing on a dataslate or soldering a pair of goggles), treating its Strength score as 20. In addition, he may spend a bonus action to use it to make a melee weapon attack with his servo-arm.
Space Marine Organs. The techmarine ignores 1 point of damage whenever taking damage, can track and absorb memories by consuming genetic material, and has advantage on saving throws against disease and poison.
Techno-Gadgets: The techmarine’s techno-gadgets weigh 1 pound per spell level. The AC of a techno-gadget is equal to his AC while it is on his person and each has 20 hit points. While not in the techmarine’s possession, his techno-gadgets have an AC equal to 10 + spell level. Other creatures are unable to understand how his techno-gadgets function and only the techmarine is able to use them.

  • Cortex Disassembler (1/long rest). The techmarine can cast fear or hypnotic pattern once without expending a spell slot.
  • Defribrilator (1/long rest). The techmarine can cast revivify once without expending a spell slot.
  • Spatial Prism (1/long rest). The techmarine can cast mirror image or see invisibility once without expending a spell slot.

Weaponized Technology (Recharge on short rest). The techmarine is a 6th-level spellcaster that uses Intelligence as his spellcasting ability (spell save DC 12; +4 to hit with spell attacks). The techmarine can cast the following spells, though only when his technological weapons are on his person:

  • Cantrips: acid splash, eldritch blast, fire bolt, poison spray
  • 3rd-level (3 spell slots): acid arrow, grease, lightning bolt, shatter, sleep, stinking cloud
