    Names for Tanks!

    I am trying to christen all of my tanks with names and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

    Are you a particular chapter or made your own with a bit of background?

    That would provide a starting point for you and all of us to give you a hand.

    Otherwise daft people like me will try and call your tanks stuff like........Barry the Rhino! ;-)

    Sorry all! I have made my own chapter called The Black Falcons, with their primarch being Ajax Falco, not the cleaner haha.

    I was hoping for darker names or names in Latin or Greek.....

    Thanks!

    Well...neither are latin or dark, really, but I'm fond of 'Sudden Death' and my personal favorite 'Queen Bitch'. (The latter is from the book Gunheads and made me laugh my ass off)

    Okies, with the Latin idea there are lots of translators on the web. Quick google search should get you one. I've used one in the past to find the Latin for Eternal Sorrow.....Aeternus Maeror.

    Hope that helps.

    Since he wants latin kind of names I thought Id take these just for shits ad giggles, and put them in an engish-latin translator. Anyways queen bitch turned into regina bitch (I guess there isn't latin for bitch) and sudden deat is subitus nex, much more suitable for a tank.
    Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!

    What about Anvil or Imperiosus Tempestas (Imperial Storm)?

    Incendia tempestas(fire storm) could also work.

    Vox Incendia is power of the fire(well not strictly but there is no latin for of),


    ps. fury is rabies in latin lol

    There's a lot of faux-Latin in computer games you could steal; "Merces Letifer" from the Hitman games, which means something like "Deadly Business", "Vae Victis" from Blood Omen which is "woe to the conquered", or "Manus Celeris Dei" from the same game which is "swift hand of God". Change "Dei" to "Imperator" and you've got "Swift Hand Of The Emperor".

    Of course you could always just call it "Thomas The Tank".
