name for my 40k space marines

Postby spartan117 » Thu Sep 29, 2011 11:44 pm

Well in short im taking a small break from brikwars. don't worry, where just stopping so when we come back to it, were refreshed and ready for some uge' battles.

on to the marines. ok I play a army that is green with light green highlights and a black under coat. they all carry bullpup bolters and sweet looking knifes. and a few have bionic eyes.

there back story is there kind of a grey knights successors, but there not a whole chapter, there is only a few hundred, and there only used for missions that even space marines would take to long, to many casualtys. or they need the mission done in secret.

there all psykers and they have the best armor and weapons they can get.

they use the new grey knight rules with some minor mods.

so i was thinking something sort of spartanish. like the sons of sparta, or the spears of Areas, but i would think it is to corny with the whole im into halo and whatnot. so maybe no name, just a number? like C-17, or somthing similar.

I have some pics of them if it would help.

SO anything you guys can think of would be great. there basically done but i can't think of a name that is just right....

I would say, keep the designations and/or spartan names for characters. Would this: http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/liber/CantinaChapterCreator.html
Be of any assistance? Also, a P&M log in the lesser games section would be nice.

The only GK successor I've heard of are the Exorcists, so you might go with something along those lines for a name. You could also play off of the Gray Knight's name, for instance the Dark Knights, the Black Knights, the Green Knights (which would play to Arthurian myth, too).

Actually, I take my suggestion back. I want to use it for my own forces.

Wait, I just reread this post.

Alright, seems fine. Tron space marines, baddass.

there back story is there kind of a grey knights successors, but there not a whole chapter, there is only a few hundred, and there only used for missions that even space marines would take to long, to many casualtys. or they need the mission done in secret.

Err, Grey Knights are ALREADY super space marines with deep strike missions against Chaos.

there all psykers and they have the best armor and weapons they can get.

ALL of them? Aren't the Grey Knights members of the Inquisition? Good luck justifying that.

they use the new grey knight rules with some minor mods.

Whatever, I don't play 40k anyways so I can't judge this.

so I was thinking something sort of spartanish. like the sons of sparta, or the spears of Areas, but I would think it is to corny with the whole im into halo and whatnot. so maybe no name, just a number? like C-17, or somthing similar.

C'mooon man, this isn't the UNSC. Moar Grimdark, less antiquity, more Dark Ages. If you are genuinely going to do this crap basing the army of Transylvania would be a smart move.

The Impalers Of Vladimir.


I have some pics of them if it would help.

Hell yes it would help! This forum eats pics like Wilford Brimley eats cake.
