At the end of the day, I think this is only being done so they can copyright their own names to the products. But I can't confirm that's the case.

Sounds like what happened to me. Personally I'm not a fan and will continue calling them IG and Storm Troopers Storm Troopers. I think Astra Militarium sounds more far more "kiddy" than Imperial Guard. "Astra" isn't a problem, Militarium sounds like pig latin. I like the term Adeptus Astartes and the various Ordo names so it's nothing that I have anything against "High" (Latin) Gothic, it's just that this particular name sounds like something a 12 year pimply faced DnD kid would name his character to sound tough. Imperial Guard makes sense, the people in it "Guard" the "Imperium" vs the "Space" "Military". You can polish a turd but it's still shit.

+1 to that speculation. Unneeded I think. The term Imperial Guard has been around for years.

I don't like it because I'm not used to it. Also, I don't like change, can't handle progress, and if I find that there was no STC for that wyvern and it was the product of scientific analysis and development, I'm going to the inquisition. All hail the Omnissiah!

It's idiotic.

Strange, but not a Stranger.

It's fine. Not sure what all the hysteria is about.

I agree with this sentiment as well. It's not the biggest change they've made by a long shot.

I'll go with my standard response in these situations:

Not bothered either way, but I will still call them IG until I realise whoever i'm talking to is confused - much like the paints situation.



- "Paint that with bleached bone"

- "they don't make that colour"

- "oh right, they changed it. Use the beige one that says Usher's bones or something"

Yeah, pretty much sums up my feelings as well. Don't care, really. Will still call things as I please. Especially if it bothers people.

I'm quite surprised in that I've started communicating in the new paints by and large. I decided to use all new paints on my imperial army, so everything I used on them I now know by the new name.

I will refer to them as the guard for the time being. That could change I guess

It's still always going to be guard when I'm talking about them so what it says on the codex is fairly irrelavant
