We're unsure what tithe grade is measured in, but most assume it to be how much the planet must give (tithe) to the Imperium based on its natural Resources.

Tithe Grades: (That I can remember off the top of my head)
Exactis Extremis (Largest Tithe Grade)
Exactis Particular
Exactis Prima
Exactis Secundus
Exactis Tertius
Decuma Extremis
Decuma Particular
Decuma Prima
Decuma Secundus
Decuma Tertius
Solutio Extremis
Solutio Particular
Solutio Prima
Solutio Secundus
Solutio Tertius
Adeptus Non (No Tithe Allowed due to past events, Exterminatus, etc)

Found this a while back.
I can't remember what site it's from, but here it is:

Imperial records:

* Gamma class - Civilised Worlds
Population: between 15,000,000 and 10,000,000,000
Tithe grade: Solutio Extremis - Exactis Tertius
Aggregate: 3,500
Aestimare: A50-F1000
Comments: This is the widest category comprising any world, generally
self-sufficient, with a contemporary technology-base that does not comply with
other specification. Includes major sub-categories Cardinal worlds [cc],
Garden worlds [cg], Mining Worlds [cm].
Examples: Desedna, Espanor, Korsk II, Luxor, Rhanda, Tallarn

* Alpha class - Agri Worlds
Population: between 15,000 and 10,000,000
Tithe grade: Exactis Prima - Exactis Particular
Aggregate: 2,000
Aestimare: C500-B50
Comments: No less than 850 parts per 1000 given over to the cultivation of
crops, hydroponics, animal fodder or animal husbandry. Few conurbanations,
population spread widely across planet surface.
Examples: Bellis XIV, Chiros, Kabaal II, Silvanos II, Verdan III

* Eta class - Hive Worlds
Population: between 100,000,000,000 and 500,000,000,000
Tithe grade: Decuma Particular - Exactis Extremis
Aggregate: 1,400
Aestimare: B50-E400
Comments: Surface generally inhospitable, even deadly, to Human life after
centuries of processing. Urban conglomerations called Hives, many miles in
height, are principle population centres. Factory, mining and atmosphere
processing are main industries. High import/export ratio, particularly
foodstuffs and fresh water incoming.
Examples: Armageddon, Avellorn, Ichar IV, Kado, Lastrati, Modia,
Necromunda, Vanaheim

* Phi-Lambda class - Feral Worlds
Population: between 100,000 and 5,000,000
Tithe grade: Solutio Tertius
Aggregate: 800
Aestimare: F400-G800
Comments: Technical base considerably pre-black powder, even pre-ferrous
or lithic state in most regressed cases. Sometimes good source of army and
Adeptus Astartes recruits if culture shock survived. Low tithe due to
unfocussed production processes. Imperial Commanders often distant, in orbit
usually, with infrequent surface forays to establish purges of psychic talent
and mutation.
Examples: Belami, Davin, Fenris, Forman C2, Kimmeria, Oran

* Delta class - Dead Worlds
Population: zero
Tithe grade: Adeptus Non
Aggregate: 200
Aestimare: G500-G1000
Comments: These worlds have minimal, even non-existent, life traces. This
results from ecological catastrophe, devastating internecine war, Imperial or
alien intervention or no attributable cause.
Examples: Istvaan III, Naogeddon, Prandium, Truan IX, Zhoros

* Delta-Tau class - Death Worlds
Population: between 1,000 and 15,000,000
Tithe grade: Solutio Tertius - Solutio Primus
Aggregate: 600
Aestimare: D500-G50
Comments: Planets which are too dangerous to support widespread Human
settlement. Types vary from world-wide jungles that harbour carnivorous
plants and animals to barren rockscapes strewn with volcanos and wracked by
ion storms. These worlds are near-impossible to colonise but must be properly
explored where neccesitates the provision of outposts and other facilities.
Some harbour rich mineral, vegetable, animal or gaseous resources.
Examples: Canak, Catachan, Cthelle, Lost Hope, Miral, Piscina V

* Rho class - Research Stations
Population: between 100 and 500,000
Tithe grade: Adeptus Non
Aggregate: 100
Aestimare: A760-D45
Comments: Includes wide variety of locations, such as orbital stations,
asteroidal emplacements and other major facilities of dead worlds, death
worlds or on other planets. Responsible for wide variety of research, from
animal breeding and domestication to weapons testing and genetic engineering.
Also listening and watch posts for planetary and system defence of major
planets [Aest. B200 or greater].
Examples: A1709, Arx, Fornoth, Lucan, Purgatory, Sentinel V, Ymgarl

* Mu class - Feudal Worlds
Population: between 10,000,000 and 500,000,000
Tithe grade: Solutio Primus - Solutio Extremis
Aggregate: 400
Aestimare: C750-F1000
Comments: Technical base just prior or just post black powder state.
Establishment of wide surface cultural and political organisations. Some
useful recruiting for Imperial Guard and Adeptus Astartes. Slightly higher
tithes than Feral worlds, compensating for wider farming and animal husbandry.
Examples: Atilla, Boras Minor, Chbal, Molov, Solstice, Yamnan

* Phi class - Forge Worlds
Population: between 1,000,000 and 15,000,000,000
Tithe grade: Adeptus Non
Aggregate: 1000
Aestimare: A1-C500
Comments: Sovereign Domains of the Adeptus Mechanicus, these are planet-
wide factories. A Forge world often serves as a base of operations for one of
the Titan Legions. Forge worlds are essential for the supply of arms and
armour to the Imperiums combat forces.
Examples: Esteban VII, Gryphonne IV, Lucius, Mars, Ryza, Triplex Phall

Wasn't that in the 3rd edition rulebook? Pretty sure, it looks familiar.

Yes, that was from the third edition rulebook.


As much as I loved that rulebook, when I looked back on it, I realize two things:


1) the artwork in those days were much better, where as now we just love substituting with photographs and badly designed photoshop images

2) the terrain back then were much better, a lot of time and effort went into them, these days the terrain can still be good but there's far too much playmats and what not for my liking

3) the armies back then were SMALL, even the showcased (oh my god this army cannot be any more massive) Nick Davis' Imperial Guard....it was just unimpressive....even the studio's pre-apoc cadian army and steel legion army put together was much bigger....

Crazed… that's three things. :P
Although I do agree with all those points, I'd like to say you're being a little harsh on the terrain. There's actually some nice, affordable, plastic GW terrain now, which means people with little time/effort to build terrain can still have a reasonably good looking battlefield.

Yes...three...rather

Oh I admit these days for the customer terrain is much better. I'm talking in showcase terms before. Like these days if I go into GW many of the boards will no longer be as good as they used to be.


And man, the armies back then were small, I can't stress this enough, like really...really...small

Yeah, I've been noticing that.
I remember when we had a scratch-built, moulded, custom terrain filled DoW Cityfight themed board.
There was also a pretty decent collection of forest/swamp and desert terrain as well.

Quote:

They thought what, 50+ models at 2000 pts was big.
And battle reports were usually only 1000-1500 a side.

These days it's a lot better for big armies in both model counts and points costs.

One thing, I may be being thick but what does it mean by Aggregate?

Looking it up in the dictionary didn't make it any clearer to me.
