Imperial Armour Volume Fourteen – Fires of Cyraxus

Imperial Armour Volume Fourteen – Fires of Cyraxus was announced in 2017, not a word has been heard since, and it was never published. Since then, we got 8th Editions Indexes, and 9th Edition' Compendium covering Imperial Armor content. --Siegfriedfr (talk) 16:24, 11 April 2022 (UTC)


Excertus An "Excertus Tank" refers to 'Excertus Imperialis' the Imperial Army, and the text is describing 'an army tank' not a specific type of tank. -- Marginalia 11:45 29 December 2021

Please provide relevant quote for judgement, thanks. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum (talk) 20:36, 29 December 2021 (UTC)

Nao'Sak'Oraes Missile Cruiser

Nao'Sak'Oraes Missile Cruiser - this article is based entirely on unofficial material. Needs either moving to unofficial/fanfic section or deleting --Fio'Vre Marky 23:09, 21 July 2013 (UTC

Close combat weapon

I agree with Acidface: it is poorly written and badly sourced. Anyway, shouldn't the main article have a singular title (and not plural)? --Jacob Sterlov 04:22, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Instead of deletion page has been redirected to Close Combat Weapons (also, some of the game mechaincs related text has been removed from that page). Thelemur 02:18, 21 February 2012 (CET)

Space Marine Scout

Space Marine Scout - the Scout Squad page already exists and is used more often. NTC3 11:38, 5 October 2011 (CEST)

It does not depend on what is used more often, but what makes more sense. "Space Marine Scout" is the correct title, therefore the content from the Squad page should be moved there. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 12:19, 5 October 2011 (CEST)
Maybe, but there are no Assault Marine or Tactical Marine or Devastator Marine pages, just redirects to the Assault Squad, Devastator Squad and Tactical Squad. It would make more sense to keep in line with these 3 articles and get rid of Space Marine Scout. NTC3 12:34, 5 October 2011 (CEST)
All of these cases are mistakes. Normally we always refer to the single unit, I mean for example we dont name the article Leman Russ Squadron either. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 12:36, 5 October 2011 (CEST)

Armour of Fates

Armour of Fates is an orphan page referencing Roboute Guilliman's Current armour in the cannon, however, all current references to the armour such as the model's datasheet call it the Armour of FATE. There is also a separate page with the correct name Armour of Fate which is linked from the Roboute Guilliman page. To the Armour of Fates's author's credit, there is one source from Warhammer Community (Warhammer Community: March, for Macragge) which does indeed say "Fates". At the very least pages should be merged.

Bayard (Primaris Emperor's Champion)

Bayard (Primaris Emperor's Champion)

Copy-pasting my comment in the talk section of the aforementioned page : This is not an official GW channel, it's run by independant fans. Additionally, the word "Primaris" is used nowhere on that Card, so this is pure speculation that it's a "different", "Primaris", character than Bayard. The fact they used the recently released Champion model is no indication about the Lore the card represents.--Siegfriedfr (talk) 16:18, 26 March 2023 (UTC)

Copy-pasting my comment in the talk section of the aforementioned page :
Well the same card is on the developer's official twitter page Warhammer Combat Cards Twitter and you can see its clearly based on the Primaris Emperor's Champion seen here EC9th.jpg. Games Worshop's website describes the model as being a Primaris in the Black Templars Army Set as well. Also if you click on Bayard's lexicanum page, you can see he died in Chapter XXIII of the Helsreach (Novel), so they are two different characters who have the same name. If you look through lexicanum, you can see that happens a lot. Dram (talk) 16:52, 26 March 2023 (UTC)
These are not the issues at all. The issues are the following :
1) The Source used is not official, and doesn't respect the rules of the Lexicanum. see Example of unnaccepted source where its clearly stated that blogs, forum posts are not an accepted source. A Reddit forum not endorsed officially by GW, is not an accepted source, as per the rules of this wiki.
2) a page with the following name was created : Bayard (Primaris Emperor's Champion), which is incorrect, if a page has to exist it should be Bayard (game card), otherwise its just fan content and should be on the 40k Wiki.
If we have to suffer a page for each game card ever created, at least make it respect the rules, and Logic--Siegfriedfr (talk) 06:48, 27 March 2023 (UTC)
