Rumour round up.

Post by IGfanatic » Mon Mar 17, 2014 12:07 pm

Imperial Guard to be renamed to Astra Militia which imo is stupid as all hell. We aren't a saturday morning cartoon hero force, we are the emperor damned guard.

New Ogryn kits for shooty and bashy ogryn.
New storm trooper/veteran kit. Can make a storm trooper command squad.
New hydra and artillery kits.
Valkyrie is only flier. Upgrade to vendetta for 45 points. No squadrons for valks.
Grav guns? Neat but not my cup of tea.
New super tank? Our counter to riptides/wraithknights.

Take these next few with a grain of salt.

Cadian focused, most of the regiments use cadian-pattern gear.
Catachans phased out.
Fluff over haul.
Doctrines? :D

No...no...NOOOOOO

Astra Militarium?! REALLY? No, no im done, outies, quit! What will happen to the many years of "Imperial Guard" novels, Only War, the games? This is the most upsetting thing about this release.

Edit: To clarify, look at my name to see why I am whining about the name change. Just, yeah.

I wanted there to be plastic mordians and death korp and all the other cool regiments so you could mix and match parts to make a really unique "guard" regiment. :(

You know they will remain as Imperial guard right? it's just the cover of the codex that wont be named Imperial guard as in they are going to cover their entire millitary (Fleet&ground&mech)
They also renamed stormtroopers but then again I guess this is due disney buying up star wars and claiming copyright here and there.
But as i mentiond, they still remain imperial guard.
Less panic now and enjoy the games mhm k?

The Imperial guard is the ground force, the Imperial Navy is the air. If anything the closest other names are the Imperial Army or the Departmento Munitorum.

Just the name Astra Miliatarum is so stupid.

By the Emperor...we're doomed.

Astra Militarum (aside from not making much sense) doesn't even sound good. Not being able to refer to your troops as Guardsmen is like ripping the soul of the army from it. And here I was excited for plastic Ogyrns, guess I'll just have to wait for plastics finish up my Sororitas.

We can complain how much we want but I dont Think they gonna do anything. I got an idea, just paint over the name and write ''Imperial Guard'' on the codex when/if it will be released. Just make sure the staff in the store you dooing it dont see its you that changing the name on the books. They probably gonna be a Little angry. And I will never (except when complainng ;)) use the new name. The-name-that-wont-be-said!

Same, I will always refer to the book and models as Imperial Guard.

Also, it would feel kinda weird to call an army with thousands mud-covered men, Sentinels Walking thru the forst cruching trees and enmies alike, tons of big lumbering tanks and everywhere sergents shouting orders to the Soldiers, call that army for Astra Militarum?

Alright you Astra Militarum dogs! Charge!

It just isn't right. Also rumours are that rough riders are gone.
