Also, my gaming group here and back east has always called Mephiston either Meph, Mephy, or Vampire Jesus (my personal fav).


I generally call him Mephy, but I might start going with Phisty to shake things up.

There's one I've seen a few times that I don't know what it is, maybe you guys can help me out. What's FLG?


FLG = FrontLine Gaming; frontlinegaming.org

Hidden Content

Call me Indy. It's less syllables.

Blenderfists for Furioso equipped with blood talons, Libbynaught for a Furioso Librarian.

I haven't heard that one and it is kind of misleading as the blood talons aren't power fists.

Blenderdread - Furioso/DC dreadnought with Blood talons

Considering fists are the stock loadout on Furioso Dreadnoughts I don't think anyone's been mislead before, but it is an old name and made more sense when talons generated extra attacks until the dice turned up 1's more or less. It was as if the model had blenders for fists.

Blenderdread I guess makes more sense nowadays but isn't nearly as fun to say :lol:

"Lasticals" was mentioned the other day which is a Tactical Squad with a lascannon - I think this is great and I've added it. Whilst we can no doubt make some up, are there any more known Tactical Squad short-hands?

The following list is all the lingo/shorthand that BA players use for their stuff. If you see something missing, reply below and I'll add it!

  • Honour Guard - A now defunct unit, it refers to a Command Squad today

 

As far as lore is concerned, our Honour Guard is the Sanguinary Guard.

Our codex entry Honour Guard is defunct, but the Command Squad is also defunct, in every codex. Command Squads have broken down in Company Veterans, Company Champion, Company Ancient, and Sanguinary Novitiate.

"Although feared and mistrusted by those they protect, the Blood Angels continue to smash the Imperium's foes, compiling a battle history second to none.", Dark Millenium 7th ed.

"You underestimate our cousins, skald. Their gold and jewels mask a killer’s soul, and we would do well to remember that.", Helik Redknife, VI Legion ‘Vlka FenrykaCaptain

An extremely niche idea used in the previous edition. Quite likely someone was having a laugh but it's daft enough to be legit considering Necrons had a "French breakfast" build...

Very true, but it was accurate at the time of writing. Will likely leave it in and add a few tweaks as BA Honour Guard was a thing from 2nd through to 5th edition.

In Angels Blade, Aphael had his own personal command/honour guard. They were basically his squad. They road in I
His rhino, and his company champion protected him from death. So while the sanguinary guard are our honor guard, there is still relevancy to the unit.

It was in 5th where Dante also made the Nipplewing troops.
