Or, the fiction based on the game. This includes any narratives, short stories found in Codices, novels, or game enrichment books (for example: The Art of Warhamemr 40k, or Liber Daemonica)

They can be confusing at times - hence this thread.

Which of the following would you prefer?


Chaplain and Death Company
Jump Pack, Melta Bombs, Lightning Claw, Bolt Pistol and Frag Grenades

or

Chappy and DC
JP, MB, LC, BP and FG

Both are easy to understand. I suppose it depends how fast you type

Actually, when used appropriately, abbreviation serves to make writing quicker and smoother to read, as well as generally being more elegant. It's only when lazy people find out the power of abbreviation that we've got trouble.
