So I decided to go on Games Workshop for the first time in months and I see these Militarum Tempestus dudes.

What the fuck did I miss.

GW renaming everything to avoid lawsuits, releasing shitty mini codices for big bucks. The models are pretty nice, though.

So basically I'm looking at Imperium special forces?

But not Astartes.

And did GW seriously change Imperial Guard to Astra Militarum?

Can't sue people over Imperial Guard. They're still called IG but that's their common name. Astra Militarum is their official name. Like Adeptus Astartes is the official name for Space Marines.

It's stormtroopers, but in their own codex where the only unit is stormtroopers.

The Imperial Guard codex, with everything but about two units and a transport removed, then sold at full price. Only for people who don't mind playing nothing but storm troopers, or who want to make an Elysian Drop Trooper Detachment-99 count-as list or something.

Actually they changed it to Astra Militarum so they wouldn't have to sue because it one of the reasons GW has a bad rep.

Even if something isn't meant to be a Guard ripoff GW would have to take legal action gainst it to keep their IP because IP laws are shit.

By changing the name to Astra Militarum they've basically made sure the only people who are hit by lawsuits are people who deserve it.
