Default Warhammer 40k Terms

I'm trying to make a list of all the little terms and stuff we (gamers in general, but I'm referencing this forum now) for stuff.

I'm not coining this on my own, I'm just trying to make a big list like in the back of the Imperial Guard codex.

Feel free to post any that you might have.

The List
General
Dreadsock- A sock with a Dreadnought in it used to enlighten others on the game (came from Fish 'Ead)

Dakka - Shooting

Necron
Monolith Beard Shield- When more than 1 monolith are together, they create a shield between them that nothing can penetrate

Tau
Pinto Fish- A Tau Devilfish with only the decoy launchers upgrade

Fish Of Fury - When a Tau Devilfish shields rapid-firing Fire Warriors from assualt, and forces a target priority check.

Eldar
Cheese-Facons- An Eldar Falcon with a Holo-field and a spirit stone, making it difficult to kill.

Serpents of Fury - When Eldar does the exact same thing as a Fish of Fury, but with a Wave Serpent.

Rubberbanding Hawks - A cheesy and ineffective tactic of maxing three squads of swooping hawks with a wingtarch and having them repeatedly deepstrike/skyleap whilst dropping an almight THREE str 4 ap 5 grenade packs per turn

Wingtarch- A Swooping Hawk Auturach

Holofalcon-Harlie Drop - when eldar player really want to be nasty and/or is sick of having people like him, three cheese falcons loaded with three 6 man harlequin squads

Dark Eldar
Spite-grenades- Goblet of Spite + a full squad with Haywires.

Imperial Guard
SIGAFH: Abbreviation for "Shooty Imperial Guard Army From Hell". SIGAFH armies are composted almost entirely of Infantry, with virtually no upgrades, and every squad sporting a heavy weapon.

Tyranid

Forces of Chaos

Space Marines

Inquisition

To set the record straight, the person who used the word "inpenetrable" needs to be Dictionary-socked. It is not "inpenetrable," it's beardy. There's a difference.

that's "Fish of Fury". FoF has several meanings, including Fleet of Foot.


Anyway, a couple more:

SIGAFH: Abbreviation for "Shooty Imperial Guard Army From Hell". SIGAFH armies are composted almost entirely of Infantry, with virtually no upgrades, and every squad sporting a heavy weapon.

SIGAFH is often wrongly applied to any Guard army, to Guard armies that can be outshot by static Marine force, or even to Tau armies. SIGAFH, however, should only refer to an army that refuses to buy any upgrade that isn't a gun.
