    Ok as you'll notice many players use a short hand for certain things (eg HW, HA = Hand weapon, Heavy Armour) so to make it easier for peeps to understand I'd like to have your help creating a kinda dictonary of these shorthand words etc.

    So here I'd like you to post what army they will be done for and then put the shorthand followed by the longhand version. Here's the one for dwarves:

    Dwarves
    • GA = Gromril Armour
      Ro = Rune Of ...
      MRo = Master Rune Of ....
      Gyro = Gyrocopter
      FC = Flame Cannon
    Generic:
    • HW = Hand Weapon
      GW = Great Weapon
      HA = Heavy Armour
      LA = Light Armour
      S = Shield
      FC/FCG = Full Command/ Full Command Group
      HG = Handgun
      X-Bow = Crossbow
      BT = Bolt Thrower
      ST = Stone Thrower

    Great idea, Ulrik!

    Here's some additional abbreviations I've come across:

    Generic:

    BSB: Battle Standard Bearer
    2HW: 2 Hand Weapons/Additional Hand Weapons

    Chaos:

    MoCU: Mark of Chaos Undivided
    MoK: Mark of Khorne
    MoN: Mark of Nurgle
    MoS: Mark of Slaanesh
    MoT: Mark of Tzeentch

    High Elves:

    RBT: Repeater Bolt Thrower
    LB: Longbow
    SH: Silver Helms
    SM: Swordmasters

    Empire:

    HB: Helblaster Volley Gun
    GC: Great Cannon
    GS: Greatswords

    I'm sure there's others but I can't think of them right now...
