We need a name for the new rule book
« on: July 3, 2012, 04:37:26 PM »
Previously we've had the Big Red Book and the Big Black Book before that.

For 6th Edition some like Big Yellow Book but I don't. I'd rather Big Damn Book as the thing is the size of something you could beat rampaging dinosaur burglars to death with.

Offer your suggestions below and perhaps we'll make a poll to decide upon a definitive acronym.

I've seen Big Orange Book, which I don't think is accurate as the new book doesn't look orange at all, but it shortens down to BOB which is funny.

I don't see what's wrong with BYB to be honest...

It's not really yellow either. More a sickly green with a bit of orange on top. Also, BYB is too close to BYOB (Bring Your Own Booze) which is how I started gaming anyways. The proper way.

How about the Future Expensive Paperweight.   Since that is what it turns into after a new edition comes out.   Kind of like what old college books are when they change editions the next year.   

I resisted getting one.   Just going to wait til the new boxed set comes out.  The players set and the collectors book  were so obscenely priced I just laughed.   Especially when you find the "limited Edition" 4th and 5th edition books on ebay for next to nothing.

Hopefully the good things come to those who wait and they put a small players book in the new boxed set.   Otherwise people will need to bring a bag for their army and a 2nd bag for their book.   With the weight of that thing, even if you could put it into most foam transport bags it would probably make them fall over on thier side.

FEP would be too confusing with every other rulebook out there for every other game. We need to narrow it down a little more to this edition so people can see the difference. Thank you for helping though.  :)

 So would BFB be out of the question?

 We could just refer to it as RB6. Short enough to be sexy, long enough to not show fur and early morning dew.

Yes. We have to save that for when the Beastmen codex comes out and the Furries all go wild. There are cat girl abhumans now you realise.  ;)

I'm actually good keeping it as the BRB, but instead of being short for the Big Red Book, have it be the Big Rule Book... which is what it is.

Failing that I am totally down with the BDB

*sniff, sniff* I smell a poll coming on.....

I like RB6, or more Simply V6 as this is quite a departure from rules come before I think a departure from the usual B*B would not be out of place.

RB6 sounds like an energy drink that gives you leprosy. V6 doesn't work as we all know a straight line V8 is better.

CB6 = Core Book 6th

MWCB = Mat (Matt) Ward's Core Book

It prolly won't matter as this will get a name, 40k 6th Ed = 406.

We missed a great opportunity with 4th Ed for 404 error jokes.

 So far I have yet to see an acronym that does not make me feel like it is something you can catch from a cheap backally toilet seat. I will probably vote for the one that sounds like you could most likely get rid of it with a shot of penicillin and a wire brush.

 T4KR....Terminatorh ammer 40K Rulebook.

Or we could go the route of acronyms within acronyms to attempt to make people's heads explode!

BRB is the old book, you can't use that. It seems more yellowish than anything else so that works for me.

BDB is a decent one.  It is a big book, and it brings some pretty big changes this time.
