I hope it's not true but it probably is. On the bright side maybe they will be called the federation.
What is the rumour?
It seems like IG will get a new codex in a few months alongside with a new name "Astra Militarium" due to intelectual property politics of GW.
you got to be kidding.... idiocy on a very high level, first that name will never stick to the army second what a idiotic name to come up with, seriously with the fucking fuck kind of crap.
It's a high gothic name Hendriksen. Much in the same way as Space Marine is the generic version of Adeptus Astartes in the game canon.
I'm not kidding Hendriksen, i'm only telling you the "fucking fuck kind of crap" i read since two weeks on Bell of Lost Souls and other forums...
Actually, it is a crappy name. Just for only one reason: it's wrong.
"Astra Militarum", literally means from latin "Stars of the soldiers". Milites Astrarum (or Astras, I don't remember) should be the right way to say "Soldiers of the stars"
I'm more impressed that the Guardsmen is able to speak coherently while drinking at the sametime.
That's because the guardsman is a puppet and the marine has his hand up its backside and throwing his voice. They’re having a talent show to improve moral.
Is it just me or does GW seem to be making a lot of poor choices? Some good ones but a lot of bad ones.
Michael +1. I agree lots of stupid bad mistakes. Sinse BT's have gone to the smurf side of the SM. I have not brought a single model and more and likely will not even play again. Might even just sell them on E-Bay.
