Um.......Katalyst, I hate feeling stupid and all but last I checked it is supposed to be Word Bearers. World Eaters have world in their name, Word Bearers have word because it fits with their beliefs and ideals.

Ummm... I'm not sure if your joking or not... But I'm assuming a member who's been around as long as you wouldn't start a pointless thread so... I'm going to guess your genuinley confused?
They are WORD Bearers. Literally they are the "Bearers of the Word". The words of chaos. The true gods. The whole point of thie legion is the fanatical devotion to chaos and spreading it. Even more so than the fanatics who worship the emperor. Because they recieve tangible gifts and blessings from the gods when they please them. They have thousands of pages of sacred text that are anti-imperial creed, pointing out falsehoods and proclaiming chaos above all others.
The word of chaos must be spread. For only united under chaos, and faithful in it, can humanity survive. That's the WORD Bearers way...
Katalyst don't be embaressed as a lot of people get the 2 legions confused because the sound alike. I suggest reading their index astartes article for imformation and background on their legion. They are basically a fanatical preachy army that spread the word of the emperor untill they turned to chaos and started spreading the word of chaos undivided.

For some reason, I automatically presumed it was World Bearers too.
I didn't notice there wasn't an L until ages later.
Weird. Maybe someone should invent the World Bearer legion/chapter just to confuzzle the hell out of everybody.
Yeah, I made the same mistake. The reason it's so confusing is because the name "World Bearers" makes sense. It describes an aggresive invading force that takes over a planet and then converts them, thusly bearing the world to chaos.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: Are you wounded?
Clouseau: No. Fortunately I was saved by the darkness.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: So what we need is more light.
When I got into chaos I thought it was World bearers first until my friend pointed it out to me that it was not. I suppose it's a common mistake but I'm not shure.

Long ago there was something in me, but now that thing is gone,
I cannot cry, I cannot care, that thing will come back no more.

True dat, true dat. World Bearers sounds much cooler.Yeah, I made the same mistake. The reason it's so confusing is because the name "World Bearers" makes sense. It describes an aggresive invading force that takes over a planet and then converts them, thusly bearing the world to chaos.
And you could really upset some people by using that name heh heh.
To really have some fun, go to a game, talk a ton of smack and then play badly enough to guarantee you lose. Call your legion the 'Word Eaters'.
