I'm still trying to decide... Since I'll paint mine in Commissariat colors, something like "Stern Custodian" might be appropriate.

On the other hand, since it is rumored that GW's big push towards big Apocalypse and FB plastic kits was what killed off Specialist Games, "Killer of Giants" might be a sadly appropriate epithet, as well.

"Mortifer" (= "Death Bearer" or "Death Bringer")

Open the Bible to any random page of the Old Testament, read through until you get to a name and there you go.

There are a lot of good names to find on old ships.

I would call it by one of my friends but i tried it and he was saying he would sue for copyrights on his name :)
but really i'll call it...............Bob.

All of my Leman russ hulled vehicles are named after important figures in my college fraternities history, and the chimera hulled vehicles are named after Canadian Prime Ministers. It's a little weird, but it's a good source of vaguely anglo sounding names.

As for my Baneblade, I might stick with the theme of Theta Chi history, and name it the Wayfarer.

01-10-2007, 18:33
I know someone that called theirs the Castrator..... (this was going to be a Chaos Baneblade...) But I dunno, probably Hunter of Vengeance

Gen.Steiner

How about "LOLOCAUST" and "ROFLCOPTER"? :p

I believe ROFLCOPTER is the title of choice for those fancy Ork Deth Kopta squadrons that are going to be in the new book. ;)

Just in case anyone is intrested and can get there are several Baneblades on display at Warhammer World in the Exibition hall,along with the Apocolypse figs.

An excellent point, and one which I had overlooked. How about "ROFLMAO" then?

I think the "IT"S OVER 9000!" is the best choice.

"Great Justice"

Then, before I fire the super battlecannon, I can give a shout out to drive fear and terror into the heart of my opponent:

FOR GREAT JUSTICE!

Damnation

or

Redemption

can't really decide, Damnation if I build it as a BB, Redemption if I build it as a Shadowsword


... or I'll just name it "Tiny" :p

LoneSniperSG
01-10-2007, 23:41
"Cadian Hammer"


Either that or I claim it under some wolfy thing, like.. "Russ's Sober Mood" >>;

Stella Cadente

Triggerdog

Mine will be refered to as "Malleus Malificarum" (Hammer of the Witches) but then again mine is also going to be part of my Inquisitorial Horde

Captain_Ardias
01-10-2007, 23:54
My scratch built Shadowsword is the 'Fist of Iron'. Not very original, I know but after spending two years building it I wanted something direct.

As for my plastic baneblade that i'll be building? Most likely Malleus Deus (if thats how its said).

Mr_Rose

That depends, did you want "Hammer of the Gods" or "God's Hammer"?

Gen.Steiner
02-10-2007, 00:34

This isn't Latin.

It's High Gothic. There's a difference. :p "Malleus Deum" means whatever he wants it to mean, regardless of the grammatical rules of Latin...

Baneblade: Dutiful
Hellhammer: Benedictio

I'm very tempted to go with either 'No bloody wheelclamps' or 'Sod the traffic wardens'

Decius
02-10-2007, 01:07
His Majesty's Persecutor, Divine Malevolence, Hate Enriches, Imperial Inclemency, Unmerciful Tyrant, Divine Oppressor, Gospel of Apocalypse, Righteous Obedience, Fanatical Malice, and Divine Atrocity are among the few that I am considering. I am also quite interested in Emperor's Intolerance, but it is hard to decide. Any suggestions?

Commissar baneblade, "Emperors Mersey"

EmMeTt

SinCollector
02-10-2007, 06:06
Titan's Bane
Longthorn
Ghostmaker
Iron Vengeance
Killing Blow
Fidelis Militis (Faithful Soldier)

I dunno. I need to think about it more. I like that last one a lot.

The patriot in me would look for inspiration from Royal Navy ship names.

"Revenge"
"Astute"
"Indefatigable"
"Fortitude"
"Audacious"
Or the classic "Victory"

That movie is okay, but it's just an okay remake of an amazing classic film not to be out-done called Wages of Fear. If you liked Sorcerer, you'll LOVE Wages of Fear.

More Baneblade names:
- Mjolnir (the name of Thor's hammer, it means "Crusher" in Old Norse)
- Martel
- Striker or Stryker
- Wanderer
- SHADO (see Gerry Anderson TV shows)
- SOL (the sun or the Satellite of Love, referencing Lou Reed and Mystery Science Theater 3000 both at once)
- Nummy Muffin

Hmm.

Considering that (if) when I get a Baneblade it will be for my Firefly Reaver inspired Traitor Guard I may have to think of a name and corrupt it for the sake of irony.

Currently?

I'm thinking of calling it Tranquility with its corrupted 'nickname' being Frenzied Torment.

A friend of mine has one named the White Elephant. He may have to change the name now.

The Pink Elephant could be used by any force which drinks heavily, such as Space Wolves, or Emperor's Children. :D

My shadowsord is The Anklehunter. It shoots ctitans in the ankle and watches them fall over.

"Incendium divus Imperator iracundia" shall be the name of my Ecclesiarchical flame-tank of firey doom (as described in a separate thread).

For those of you keeping score that means either "Conflagration of the God-Emperor's fury" or "Torch of the Emperor's divine wrath" depending on how loosely you want to translate.
