The additional name/term Enforcers came later with Necromunda and BL novels. In WD's Temporal Distort they are also mentioning the 40k White Dwarf rules (for 2nd Ed) which came with the models release that month

They were a faction of their own with a brief army list back then
Previously the 2nd Ed starter set's Army lists/Codex Imperialis book(let)s contained brief rules and background infohttps://i.pinimg.com...warhammer-k.jpghttp://pro.bols.netd...es-Workshop.jpg
There were models in 1st Edition, too, based on Jes' artworkhttps://sho3box.file...dwinsketch1.jpg
and before that GW
produced Judge Dredd miniatures under license. I don't have access to the 1st Ed rulebook atm but from memory they were in there too, at least in the fluff if not with rules.
No mentioning of the term Enforcers in all of this. Afaik it came with Necromunda when they brought out the third Arbites miniatures range
I got from the Temporal Distort article and Atia's earlier info that GW
will release new models via Necromunda (an infantry squad kit in plastic) but they will get 40k rules and an army list too, maybe as part of an 8th Edition Imperial Agents codex book.
A larger 40k release with more models, similiar to GSC, could happen but I think Atia's hint that they would come via FW/Specialist Games makes it less likely at the moment. But who knows? GW
is bringing back a lot of stuff recently. Why not a fully plastic Arbites army with a vehicle or two, differently armed squads, cyber mastiffs and some character models?
Thanks for the welcome, Corswain
