I believe it was mentioned in the Caiphas Cain Novel "Death Or Glory" that some techpriests, mainly enginseers, wear cog-shaped necklaces around their neck as a symbol of their following of the Adeptus Mechanicus, but if I remember correctly it was not explained what exactly the symbol was. I was looking into it for possible cosplay and because I just like necklaces and if I were born into the 40k universe I would most definitely be a techpriest. As far as the necklace goes, is it just a cog on a chain like Gears of War COG tags (no I do not like the COGs better than real Space Marines) or is it more complex, such as with an depiction of the Omnissiah or the Adeptus Mechanicus bone/tech skull insignia? I would appreciate any pictures that I may have missed in searching.

Thank you, that's what I thought, I just wasn't sure. I'm going to assume most techpriests would suspend the charm on a small chain link necklace. Any other information would be appreciated but thank you!

I've seen people at tourneys wearing homemade versions.

Was the charm itself the picture shown above or was it just a simple cog? I've heard it described as the cog to a techpriest being basically a cross to a Christian/Catholic while the ^Mechanicus emblem^ is a crucifix.
