But just as intentional! Flogging all the IP into new more arcane but supposedly legally defensible positions.

@gen.ahab it wouldn't surprise me if we continue to get new more trademarkable names out of GW.

Chaos Space Maines could become Astartes Malorum

Orks could be bestia simplex-bellator

I'm sure we could riff on these all day.

Like so many things from GW - neckbeard will loose their shit and trip out the "I'm never buying anything by GW again", followed by a bulk purchase on forgeworld and an apocolypse game at their local store.

Millitarum didnt change the imperial guard; it just created more memes.
Astartes didnt change anything; it just generated codex sales.
Aeldari wont change anything except make twitter complaint posts 2 characters longer.

IP and legal worlds unite!!!

Well if you didn't like the Aeldari name change you'll not likely enjoy that Dark Eldar have been renamed Drukhari

Drukhari sounds better than aeldari


I think I don't like aeldari because it sounds like a description.


"Have you seen that new grav-tank?"
"Yes, it's very aeldari"


I'm not against changing the name, I just think they should have thought of something different completely if they were going to do it rather than adding prosthetic vowels :D

Just think of it as the names they call themselves, while they'll still be called eldar by the other races.

The way things are going I wonder will we see a Codex: Orruks sooner rather than later.
ntaw and neferhet like this.

I'm with you. I think Drukhari is cool. Aeldari seems lazy. Just as lazy as "aelf," which makes me think of:

I wonder if we'll see any Codices released for any armies before a new edition. Other than armies that are being introduced, like Genestealer Cult or Deathwatch, would still need one but Orks/Orruks have a book out that could be referenced. Likewise I doubt we'll be seeing Codex: Aeldari or Drukhari before a new edition release either if we believe 8th edition is coming this year.

Aside from all that I was thinking to myself what the hell they would rebrand Orks as and it seems like you've hit the nail on the head. Didn't even occur to me that they'd nip the AoS name but it makes a lot of sense.
