Hmmm, nope cant agree with that. SW have about 10 that I either use or see (admittedly more often on SW sites rather then heresy), nids have about 2 (I tend to shorten things like 'Toxin Sacs' to '+S' but thats effect rather then abbreviation) and for my ogres I have never yet used any abbreviation on any forum ever (LoG- Look out Gnoblar.. only use it on lists written by me for me though)

There are very few abbreviations commonly used on this board and they arent hard to learn. Probably of more use is learning abbreviations for your own army off this thread so if you go to an army specific forum you know what the hell people are talking about (certainly took me about a week to know just WTH Bolter & Chainsword were talking about on their SW pages).

Um, pretty sure most people will think MOF is master of the forge.... I would guess instead of chain sword people would just say CCW (its not like a sword gives any advantages anymore).

D-Lord - necron destroyer lord

Sometimes i wonder 'Why is that frisbee getting bigger?', and then it hits me.
