It's a bit like people using 'hoover' as a descriptive term when vacuuming is the term and Hoover just happened to be an incredibly popular brand. That then adapted to "I'm doing the hoovering".
It's a shame the popularity no longer matches the quality and the same applies to Kenmore, due to outsourcing...

When did Adeptus Arbites become Palanite Enforcers? What does Palanite mean? Why couldn't they be called Palatine? How many books does one need and will any old 6 sided dice do or is the Enforcer Patrol Dice Set required?

Ever since joining the Church of Zocchi, all other throwable objects have proven inferior to Gamescience® Dice!

I think it was a mistake that went to print at some point and they had to go with it. They probably meant to write 'Palatine' (like the main hive) or 'Palatinite' (being from the Palatine Hive).
… a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

If I'm not mistaken it's Palatinate, but it could be explained away as High Gothic! lol

What was wrong with Adeptus Arbites?

Anyone played Necromunda on the Space Crusade board? A little reluctant to fork out $125+ for the boxed set...

Enforcers are not the Adeptus Arbites. The former are concerned with gang warfare and keeping some sort of order in de hive. They would be a common sight on the streets, just the local (violent and merciless) police force. The Adeptus Arbites, meanwhile, only gets involved when things really get out of hand. Major Chaos cult uprising, hunting down powerful psykers. There's only supposed to dozens, perhaps a few hundred of them on the entire planet. You don't send MI5 or the FBI to track down a shoplifter.

According to Andy Hoare in one of the recent twitch streams, Palanite is not a typo, but I also fail to see how it is correctly written in the meaning of "from the Palatine Hive".

Yup. Though this hasn't always been the way things have been depicted and it has confused some folks.

Also, Necro has quite a few Arbites due to having a large base of them there.

Godsdamn you, now I need that mini  lol

On a serious note, I agree on the conversion potential it has. As a gigantic stealth walker, it is a bit silly. But a lovely sculpt.
