    BSB? What is this secret morse code stand for!

    Sorry for bringing up a new topic for this perhaps-silly question, but I've done searching through the forum and I couldn't find an answer.

    What is BSB means?

    Don't you just absolutely hate when people use acronyms over and over again without ever giving any reference? Sometimes people take it for granted, and expect that since a particular term is used many times, that everyone would automatically know it. Obviously this can easiler irritate the new player, and is one of my particular pet peeves.

    Ah, but as to your question. BSB = Battle Standard Bearer.

    At least, that's what I've always known it to mean.

    Ahh thanks Caluin, I was flipping over my codex 3 times back and forth trying to find a particular wargear that starts with the letter B and fits the abbv. BSB, but I would never have guessed it's not a wargear but a standard bearer! :tongue:

    BSB's (I use that one all the time :tongue: ) are great for eternal guard/treeman armies.

    Don't feel bad. I blame David for the issue. Why David?, cause I haven't blamed him for anything in like a week.

    Maybe the WE heads need to get together and make a secret Acronym guide before somebody asks me what a HoDA stands for.

    The problem with that is that people use loads of different acronyms, and noone would have the patience to scroll through a huge list to find the one they need. You might think there aren't that many while writing the list, but theres always one more...

    I can just click on a random post in 40K and it will be filled with acronyms to which the meaning of I have no idea. Everyone uses them *shrugs*

    All you gotta do is ask

    What's really great is to use a noble equipped with AoN and SoM or MoS as a BSB and put him in a unit of EG that has the WB. Flank the EG with one or two TM, and you'll rack up the VP's ASAP.

    Another trick is to put a non-WD noble with HoDA in a unit WD's. Declare a S&S reaction when charged and then ROFL when your opponent is FUBAR.

    The chaos gods should just smote you for that one David; enough acronyms to give some people a headache.

    OMFG ROFL! XD

    Due to me not having the WE army book on me ATM, the only ones lost on me are AoN and SoM, otherwise I could read it fine >.<
