I'm also wondering if it's maybe time to give the glossary a review and remove some of the terms which no longer apply due to edition changes, discontinued games, etc.

Yeah, there's definitely a lot of old stuff floating around in there, but its not really easy to print out a big list to post here for people to peruse (and its too much work for me alone to try to figure that stuff out). Plus, we do have a lot of old conversations found throughout the forums that if people do end up going back and reading (for whatever reason) its nice to possibly have those old abbreviations still clarified.

Honestly, I think the best bet is just to let me know when you spot an abbreviation tip that is completely and totally irrelevant and I'll just change/remove those as needed.

Like SST Don't want to get it confused when we're talking about supersonic transports in 40K

Done. As always this will start to show up in new posts soon (but doesn't change existing posts for a long while).

TDAWGPL: Tactical Dreadnought Armour Wolf Guard Pack Leader

TAWGPL: Terminator Armour Wolf Guard Pack Leader


Because some people get their knickers in a twist, I'll list these in my sig: RaW you cannot advance and then fire assault weapons, you can't shoot pistols if within 1" of an enemy, "minimum" ranges don't work, Seraphim have to re-roll saves that "fail" pre-re-roll, the game simply breaks if you ever have more than one wounded model in a unit and Khârn punches himself in the face if he's not near some meatshields.

Death is nothing compared to vindication." - Konrad Curze, Primarch of the Night Lords

I don't think those are common or necessary.

But I suspect you also realize this?

Why single me out when there are plenty of other suggestions that are by far worse? It's common enough in talks about SW tactics.

As for a suggestion, I would like to suggest SR for Stormraven as it's pretty much a key component of any SM list that wants to win now.

Is it, though? Google says TDAWGPL has been used 6 times in 7 years. There are zero results for TAWGPL.

Dakka's own search function finds 5 results for both phrases combined, 4 of which are this thread.

Yes. It's one of those "army wide" special rules that are listed on a datasheet and referred back to a page, like how Loyalist Space Marines have ATSKNF
