This is my first post on these forums. I have tried others but everyone tells me this is the place to be. Anyway, straight to the point.
I have played Space Marines for about 8 years running, and have always picked GW created chapters. Like many other veteran players I have decided to branch out on my own and have hit the giant stump which is the curse of my life... picking a name. (several hours of my life sunk into just creating character names for World of WarCrack, which thank god I stopped to return to Warhammer 40k).
I am just never satisfied with anything I come up with so I was just gonna see if some of you could throw me some words/phrases/names/anything! to get me jump started. The background fluff I am going to use will be name independent, so I am looking for something rather neutral like blood ravens, etc. Just not one already created.
As for the look of my marines I want to go for a combination of purple/gold/bone and have chalices, some with wings, others with spikes, etc. I like painting these colors, and they make for a flashy, yet, royal look. I am attempting to stay away from blood or red, cause I do not want a blood angel successor and any of its downfalls (black rage be damned). AND I know Soul Drinkers have these themes, but I haven't read the books and want to be within the imperial fold.
Anyway, some names I've rushed together are:
Eternal Warriors (fountain of youth, holy grail idea),
Please let me know if any of these sound decent or if you can think of a better combination.
Thanks for any help!
Welcome to LO.
I find it also very difficult to name chapters, or even units.
Given your fluff, and something fitting from history.
Emperor's Templar - militaristic Crusading for the Emperor, faction.
Just an idea.
You could take the names you like and run them through a latin translator.
Ex: Eternal Warriors --> Eternus Proeliator
I use translation guide.com but there are tons of translators around.
