Sisters of Battle were always "officially" known as Adepta Sororitas. As in, "Sisters of Battle" is almost never used in fluff.

Astra Militarum on the other hand is a new thing. And it's also dumb, because it should be Adeptus [whatever]. AND, it reeks of "we couldn't copyright Imperial Guard, so here have a new name".

Actually no, the title of "adeptus" is reserved for a certain class of individual. Since the guard is governed by the Departmento Munitorum, they don't get to be called adepts.

I'm not sure if GW actually thought about the name all that much, but SPACE ARMY fits the lore more snugly than Adeptus Munitorum would.

Literally the first thing it says on the inside page under Astra Militarum is 'The Imperial Guard', idiot. Literally the only thing that has changed is the name on the front of the codex. It's referrred to pretty much exclusively as the Imperial Guard on the inside, with all the old names still present and accounted for.

Stormtroopers are completely replaced with 'Tempestus Scions' now though, which does suck.

They need officers because they do not have a hivemind. You still need to have someone give the orders and ensure that everyone sticks to the plan. (Though as clones they probably do think similarly so are likely to react in a similar way to changing situation on a battlefield, but as a single frontline trooper does not know the big picture and therefore need the command structure to function as an army.)

You are right in that the differently coloured armour for leaders is really stupid though.

Exactly, Ordos is their high gothic name, the Inquisition is their low gothic name

>The Holy Ordos (or just Ordos)=Inquisition
>Ordo Xenos= Xenohunters

So the Inquisition follows the high gothic/low gothic pattern

Where does this come from, because I've only seen "The Holy Orders of the Emperor's Inquisition". Since when has "Holy" been High Gothic? Doesn't "Holy Ordos" just mean "Holy Orders"? Other groups have orders/ordos too. There's Ordo Reductor of the Ademech; Ordo Sinister, a Titan order of the Collegia Titanica; Order Psykana of the Blood Ravens; Ordo Hydra of the Illuminati; and as of late, Ordo Tempestus, aka. stormies.

I have a reputation, Modile, a reputation as a fair, honest man who treats his soldiers well and supports them in the face of darkness. Potentially, that reputation makes me soft. It seems I understand failure and forgive it. Some, like Kowle, believe me to be a weak commissar, not prepared to take the action my rank demands. Not prepared to enforce field discipline where I see it failing. I am an Imperial commissar. I will enflame the weak, support the wavering, guide the lost. I will be all things to all men who need me. But I will also punish without hesitation the incompetent, the cowardly, and the treasonous.

Artists of 40K seem to love it. Which is OK with Space Marines, but sadly most of the art depicting IG fighting is complete shit (mostly the faces and the fact they seem to have no clue have to correctly draw action/motion) that look becomes unbearable.

The reason I love these huge battle illustrations isn't because of the battle in the foreground, it is because the retardedly huge ships and vehicles in the background that are never really mentioned in the fluff. Take for example that ship in the background. The ship must be at least 50 miles high and lord knows how long.

But they are. Every novel and loads of short stories and fluff bits about transit from one warzone to the next mentions them.

Even had their own game system with BFG.

Come now. In >>31432897 you can make out the individual soldiers marching down the ramp. It's probably no bigger than an ocean liner. And in >>31430030 you can make out formations marchine down the ramps. It's surely big, but probably not much bigger than a BFG escort, which are still insanely large.
