TMIR (The Most Important Rule) seems to be a noteworthy omission from the glossary.

Oops, sorry. Having kids will do that to you!

I'll take a pass and add all the ones suggested since I last posted (yes, many years ago), and if anyone wants to add new stuff just keep posting (and you can PM me if you don't see any response from me after a week or two).

Also, if people noice outdated terms in the tooltip pop-up that are no longer relevant for that game please let me know those as well so I can delete them.


Thanks and sorry again!

No worries, yakface - there were a few tooltips which were saying something about the tooltip not working properly, and the local cache needing updating, or something like that, when I went through the thread yesterday - unfortunately I got rid of my file of notes when I got to the end of the thread and realised the inactivity.

I think DHG (for Dwarven HandGun) was one of them - is that a bug we need to be concerned about?

I imagine a number of AoS faction acronyms are going to need to be added, at a minimum - SoB for "Sons of Behemat" being one example.

Is this thread still in use?

If it is, there are a few things missing for orks and DG:
LoC - Lord of Contagion
PBC - Plagueburst Crawler
MBH - Myphitic Blight-Hauler

KBB - Kustom Boosta-blasta
SJD - Shokkjump Dragsta

Maybe unnecessary, but those keep getting used more often now:
BM - Bad Moons
DS - Deathskulls
ES - Evil Sunz


BM didn't really stick, especially with them falling out of favor with 9th. All others are still commonly used.

Some new ones:
DDD - the ork's army rule DakkaDakkaDakka
GT2020 and GT2021 - GW's mission packs
DTTFE/DttFE) - Death to the False Emperor (CSM)
LoW - Lord of War
SHA - Super Heavy Auxiliary Detachment
LoV - Lord of Virulence (new DG HQ)
PM - Plague Marine

And maybe add "Drukhari" to the explanation of what DE means - some people don't know that they used to be Dark Eldar
Same for IG and Astra Militarum

[...] To the Ork, the only conceivable explanation for this is that the vehicle travels faster because it is red. However, as disturbing as it sounds, these 'facts' become true. Red Ork vehicles do travel perceptibly faster than those of other colors, even when all other design aspects are nominally the same. Similarly, many captured Ork weapons and items of equipment should not work, and indeed do not work unless wielded by an Ork. I believe this is linked to the strong psychic aura surrounding all Orkoids and have developed the Anzion Theorem of Orkoid Mechamorphic Resonant Kinetics. I theorise that many Ork inventions work because the Orks themselves think that they should work. The strong telekinetic abilities of the Ork's subconscious somehow ensures that the machinery or weaponry functions as desired.

I imagine a number of AoS faction acronyms are going to need to be added, at a minimum - SoB for "Sons of Behemat" being one example.

No worries yet on the strange tooltip notifications, I just need to refresh the glossary cache (which can take a while to do). If you're still seeing that message on some tooltips after that, then we'll need to get Legoburner to investigate further.

Just a reminder, especially now that I'm not really keeping up with 40K (and especially Aos), the info I need to add something to the glossary is:

1) The abbreviation itself.
2) The description of what that abbreviation means.
3) The FULL current faction name that the item belongs to (if it is faction specific).
4) The name of the game that item is part of.
5) For you to use the Dakka Search (found in 'forum tools) to check and verify that the abbreviation is being commonly used by someone besides yourself.

So for something like DHG '(for Dwarven HandGun)' I need to know what faction and/or game that belongs to. Just saying 'Dwarven' is not good enough because I have no idea what the Dwarf factions in AoS are called now or if maybe you're talking about Mantic dwarves for example. Plus according to a quick search 'DHG' isn't being regularly used, so I wouldn't bother adding it anyway.

DHG isn't one for you to add, yakface, but an example of one that's misbehaving - it shows for me as throwing that cache error in this post earlier in this thread, but I have no idea off-hand if it is one that's needed.

I'll see if I can pull you a list of AOS faction acronyms together over the weekend, despite not playing the game myself.

No worries, all the stuff you suggested was very straightforward (Deathguard & Orks), so I didn't have any trouble with it.

Can someone tell me what does 'EGT' mean in relation to Orks? And it sure seems like the use of that abbreviation for 'Eldar Grav Tank' is no longer used, correct?

"Endless Green Tide" a stratagem that allows you to replenish a unit of boyz. I wouldn't rush adding that though, the codex is due soon and that particular stratagem might not make it.

VC - Vampire Counts should be changed to [AoS] and/or [WHFB] from [GEN]. Likely [AoS/WHFB] since they will certainly be included in the returning Old World game they're working on.

The Old World game will not be a part of the Age of Sigmar setting, nor are the Vampire Counts which are now covered by the Soulblight Gravelords (SBGL) faction.

My apologies, I didn't realize there was a glossary term for SBGL. Still, if the reasoning for not marking them AoS is that they are not called that in AoS, why are they not marked WHFB instead of GEN and why is TK marked AoS instead of WHFB since they don't even exist anymore in AoS?

On to the reason I actually came here today, can we get a glossary term for whatever CONUS is? I've seen it a number of times in the swap shop and still don't know what it means.

That would be 'continental united states' (I had to google search for it as well). I can add it though. Seems like it gets decent enough use in the swap shop.

Interesting and very surprising. Less surprising that they were last updated 2.75 years ago. By that logic though, so is Vampire Counts right next to them. They're even both equally up to date, with both being marked as updated last on 1/3/2019.

Have you looked at the Vampire Counts document? It is a whole two warscrolls with pitched battle profiles and a list of 14 substitute warscrolls (mostly with the 'Leader' battlefield role). It is not a playable force by itself like the Tomb Kings document is.
