The term, Codex, has proven useful when introducing GW players to historical gaming. I have used the term to allay a new historical player's fears about researching the background of a particular army. By referring to an Osprey title as a Codex, I was able to allay that players stated fears about having to read dozens of books to find out about his army.

I made sure to use the term loosely and explained the difference but the term opened a previously closed door.

Like an acronym used in industry, the term explains a products purpose to a somewhat insular sub-section of the larger wargaming community.

If using the term can expand the horizons of non-historical players, then I am all for it. Perhaps,in time, this players selfish desire for more historical opponents will be realized.
