Symbol of the Taghmata Omnissiah

The Taghmata Omnissiah (translated from Lingua Technis as that which is divinely ordered for war) was a type of military operational force of the Adeptus Mechanicus during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy. The "third arm" of the Mechanicum armed forces alongside the Collegia Titanica and Skitarii, the Taghmata Omnissiah was a type of feudal military organization enacted in times of war and urgency. It represented the feudal power structure that each Forge World could muster in times of battle. This type of feudalized command was necessary, as at the time of the Heresy the Forge World's of the Mechanicum were each a kingdom in and of itself with its own complex hierarchies and traditions.[1]

The Taghmata Omnissiah included militant Tech-Priests, Cybernetica, Knights, Combat Servitors, Thallax, Myrmidon's, Tech-Thralls, Ordinatus engines, and a wide variety of other miscellaneous forces at a Forge World's disposal.[1]

Cult Mechanicus Battle Congregations may be organized by Tech-Priests to lead portions of the Taghmata Omnissiah.[2]
