Let's say that, for whatever reason, an Explorer wishes to acquire a Penitent Engine.
This is certainly not for the purposes of using tech-heresy to equip it wih autocannons and then wiring the Explorator into it, no sir. Just for research and punishing heretics. You know those dastardly heretics. They need to be taught a good lesson.
I think there are stats for these machines in one of the Dark Heresy supplements, but I don't think it has an availability. Any ideas for what to make it, and any additional issues the process would have?
I've converted Dark Heresy to the Only War system. Please take a look!

I would suggest not letting it be aquired by normal profit factor tests, this is a most holy artefact dear to the ecclesiarchy and one that may not be used heretically, the church would make sure that one is only given to one they feel they can trust. I would make aquiring it a lesser endeavour (Creed).
Objective 1: Would be to make good contact with the Ecclesiarchy and start up negotiations over the acquiring of one, this objective doesn't deal with actually getting it, just opening up the negotiations and proving to be good Imperial citizens as well as righteous men of action should be required, after that the Ecclesiarchy can test them, ask them to help them or ask for donations. 50 Achievent points
Then you can add some extra objectives from what you feel, you should have more of these than needed to complete the endeavour so that they can choose how to get the help from the ecclesiarchy, I'll give some examples here:
After that the last objective is closing the deal, writing the contracts, speaking the oaths, making the trade. This is an easy objective (10 Achievement points) and is really just there for closure, that said they could fail in this step, an explorer refuses to speak the oaths or pulls out when the price becomes too high.
It can of course be stolen or bought on the black market but I'd probably make that a lesser endeavour as well.
My previous post is in the wrong thread. Sorry. But everything I wrote is still awesome.

I disagree. Profit Factor includes such elements as trust and favors as much as it includes material assets.

Step two: get yourself an ecclesiarcal army including penitent engines, repentia sisters, and arco flaggelents.
Step three: Profit.
Step two: begin supplying your ecclesiarchal friends with muderous rampage engines of penance, but keep the "surplus" for yourself.
Step three: profit… In several ways.
Wouldn't it be easier just to get a Sentinel?
Orkses never lose. If we win, we win, if we die, we die fightin' so it don't count. If we runs fer it, it don't count neither 'cus we can come back fer anuvver go, see?
The penitent engine is, fluff-wise, exlusively the province of the Ecclesiarchy. If you were to acquire one clandestinely, I'd put the availability at Near Unique owing to the difficulties of acquiring such a fiercely protected construct. Also, don't ever let any Ecclesiarchs catch you with it, or you'll have a battalion of Battle Sisters up your fundament before you can say throne blind me!
Yes, Penitent Engines are property of the Ecclesiarchy. But even if the group doesn't have a missionary, you ship will most probably have priests and a chapel. So you don't acquire the engine for yourself, but for the Ecclesiarchy delegation upon your ship. Problem solved. ^^
