Dark Heresy | Published 24 May 2011

“There can be but one Emperor, one god, one saviour, one deliverer. Without Him, a billion billion souls are nought but fodder for the ever-thirsting evils of the warp.”
     –Ecclesiarch Theodacus V, Indroit to the Verses of Dusk

The light of the God-Emperor stands between humanity and destruction. Against myriad enemies, the Ecclesiarchy defends the faith with bolt, chain, and flame.

Blood of Martyrs, a supplement for Dark Heresy, is now available for purchase via download through and! This invaluable tome contains new rules, backgrounds, alternate careers and equipment for playing servants of the Adeptus Ministorum, the church of the God-Emperor of Mankind.

Included within are a detailed history of the Ecclesiarchy and the Sisters of Battle, as well as extensive accounts of the Ministorum within the Calixis Sector from Shrine worlds to the powerful cardinals of the Sector Synod. Take up the mantle of the most faithful of the Emperor’s servants, the Adepta Sororitas including the Sisters of Battle and the Orders Dialogous, Famulous and Hospitaller!

The Ecclesiarchy

Mack Martin, Dark Heresy’s lead developer, took a moment to share his excitement for Blood of Martyrs:

In Blood of Martyrs, I had the opportunity to delve into one of the most iconic areas of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the Ecclesiarchy. The Adeptus Ministorum (also known as the Ecclesiarchy) is the all-powerful and ever-present church of the Imperial cult of the God-Emperor of Mankind. While many of the previous Dark Heresy sourcebooks have discussed the Imperial faith in parts, the Ministorum of the Calixis sector has not yet been presented as the focus of an entire volume.

Thanks, Mack! For more on Blood of Martyrs, read our previews: Brides of the Emperor and A Solitary Purpose. Then, head to or and prepare to defend the faithful followers of the Emperor, by any means necessary...

Dark Heresy is a roleplaying game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, a setting in the grim darkness of the far future. Players take on the roles of Acolytes serving the Inquisition, rooting out heresy and corruption from within the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man.

A Mechanicus book would be awesome.

I would also like to see a book dedicated to the Imperial Guard. This might be a good crossover book for all three 40k game lines.

A third vote for an Mechanicus source book. Good to see pdfs, even if I have the hard copy already.

One more vote for Admech sourcebook -  and we want it to be a proper sourcebook along the lines of the Radical's Handbook (and yes, that means 256 pages, because the Omnissiah wants it so).

 Thanks FFG! The more downloadable books, the better!

On the other hand, I really hope that somewhere along the lines, we will see a book dedicated to the Adeptus Mechanicus presence in the Calixis Sector.
