what do you think of a necro gang called the 'Necrofeliaks'(sp?) :eek: :D

Are you trying to refer to necrophily? I would not really recommend threading on that area, especially if you cannot spell it properly.

I would rather recommend Necrofelix, which should translate roughly as something like "dead happy".

Yeh i don't think they'd get much killing done if their raised troops were no more than glorified sex toys.

Yeah I dont think thats a very aproppiate name really for your gang. How about Necroswords or Necrodeath. They sound pretty crappy names actually, thats all I could think of, off the top of my head.

I don't think Necrodeath really cuts it either - the latin word necro essentially meaning death, so you just end up repeating things and sounding like a skaven: "Die-die, you foolish manlings! Squeek-squeek!"

A Necrophiliac is someone who does naughty things with dead people. I think thats what he was eluding to. :skull:

Big smacks!!!!

But, if they all looked like Delaques, and asked questions like "You're not affraid of the dark, are you?", then ok.

How about Necroburgers? The gang slogan could be "Tastes just like granny".

My old Van Saar gang was called Greyshade, and I converted them all to wear shades. Easy to make (the plastic Orlock shotgun arm is ideal when cut into slices), bugger to glue on, but they looked cool when painted up.

Never thought of cutting the plastic shotgun up to make shades, good idea.
I made one by cutting up Plasticards, but it was hard to make so small a circle. but it was completed at the end and my Escher gang leader now sports a pair of rose coloured spectacle.

I always had trouble creating gang names, as most things i could think of sounded tacky or unoriginal, forcing me into having a placeholder name.
one easy way i found is to have some fluff behind your leader, then simple call them <leader>'s <something> (hehe, even in my example, i cant think of anything....)

Offhand I would say that ANY name so long as it is not obviously offensive. Your gangs and thier imagery are yours to do as you wish. If they dont make sense, it really doesnt matter as they are not actually living in the 40k world. After all, look at the simpsons, kitty kat of doom, or whatever other silly conversions out there.
My own necromunda was named after a gang found in my old D&D games. The story was that the gang was so successfull that it had simply lasted those millenia to where it still existed and had the same imagery.

Personally I wouldn't have a problem with 'Necrophiliacs'. Though I would only play with them amongst friends, stores and tourneys are understandably edgy about such things.
