Have you guys got special names for your armies, colonels/captains, or maybe even tanks? I've been thinking about a good name for my captain. Something about food perhaps :D Any ieas? :idea: :?: :p

I find it kinda boring to just name your army like 173# Catachan rifle regiment or something! It should be something cool!

I posted a short description of their fluff in the sm forum, but it comes down to the fact that they are some left-behind, forgotten black templars on doradus, a sand planet where their ship crashed and where they lost all contact with the imperium.

Army Names

All my armies have names, and if I'm playing in a campaign, I name individual units, so I can tell which unit does the best and gets promoted to vetran status or gets decimated by the Commisaars for retreating during a battle.
"The Junkyard Dogs"-IG armored company
"City Hall"- IG urban combat force
"Shadow Dancers"-Harlequin
"Emperors Mercy"-Blood Angels
"The Lost Tribe"-Tau
A good name is a must as far as I'm concerned. It adds a lot to your army.

Tank Names

All my IG armored company vehicles have names.
Like "Daddy's girl" (has converted female tank commander in hatch)
"Emperors Child" (Vanquisher)
"Go Boom" (Griffin)
"Short Round" (Basilisk with short barrel)
and of course "Smaug" for my hellhound.
Character names- try looking in some ole comic books. I like Sgt Rock and Easy Company. They have names like "Little sure shot, "Ice-cream soldier," "Bull-dozer"
Try looking in Tolkeins works, or any of your favorite book heroes.
I even have an Escher Necromunda gang called the "Taco Belles"
This is a subject near and dear to me as you can tell

My Space Marine Chapter is called the Remigo Chapter. Remigo is Latin and means 'to row'. This is explained in the fluff which is in the Space Marine introduction thread and in the fluff section.
In short it has something to do with the Phoenix Hearts Chapter crashing on an ocean world shortly after the Horus Heresy and getting to the planet's only spot of dry land using their weapons as ores - later changing their name to the Remigo Chapter.
My characters all have names. A few worth mentioning are Chapter Master Yoqued Oren, Chief Librarian Apheq Tarquer, Chapter Standard Bearer Laec Schief, 5th Company Captain Jeaju and 5th Company Chaplain Juhai.

My small (but growing) Valhallan style IG army also has it's own fluff. They are called the Moonlight Guards of Negu-Tadh. Again, the fluff can be found in the IG forum.
I only have afew characters in this army as of yet but the ones I have are Colonel Frost (how about that name for a Valhallan commander :lol: ) and Lieutenant Viandel.

I also have a mob of Ork boyz for Gorkamorka. They are called Grimshag'z 'Edbangerz and are led by the notorious 'ard rokkin' Grimshag Braincrusha - wanna' da top dogz in Mektown!
All my boyz have names in this mob.

I haven't really though of a name for my army, but I found one two days ago...

IRON SLAYERS

In glory of my name... Dragonslayero
I was thinking about "Dragonslayers of Iron", but It just sounded like I'm in love with myself... so I didn't think more of it...

When I played IG I did my army to a theme. B)

My Col. is Col. McKnight. And the army is called Task Force Ranger.

Its based on Black Hawk Down, mostly the book and some of the movie.

It has 2 units of Stormtroopers to represent the Delta Force troops. The Sgt's are named after real Rangers. I equipped the men with equipment similar to what they used. Autocannon's and stuff like that.

My Space marine chapter are called "The Star Reapers" they are a third founding chapter founded from The Sycthes of the Emperor. My commander is called Luthor Vass just because i thought it sounded cool and from the middle ages. Most of my inspiration for my army names come from books. I have a name for each squad which i took from Tolkins The Simarillion (damn spelling again) the names i used where the last twelve defenders of a human country the name of which i cant remember but Beren was one of them if anyone of ye have read it. Also my Ork army are bad moons so i called them "The Loona Moonas" and my ork warboss is called "Bonecrusha Mac Rusha"

My current army I am building is called the "Ranger's Claim 23rd Jungle Stalkers"

They are based around a mixture of Catachan/Cadian models glued into bits and pieces to look like an organised rag-tag force. Their commanding officer is Colonel Erin Krauss, previously 2nd in Command of the 15th Jungle Watchers, an elite team of which he was the sole survivor. His battle experience and tactical prowess will hopefully rub off on those below him, and will lead them all into glory...
