Ooooooh!!! Van, you are a genious!!

Fanboy and Weak Coffee!! 2 terrible things indeed!

@BH: yeah, pretty much. Once the fleet is well painted _AND_ I write down something (I always do that) for fluff I will name them OK, but no ship pof mine has ever hit the table being a nameless chunk of lead and plastic. So I ask for names :)

Cheers,

Xavi

There was a running joke on the BFG list a while back about a vessel called the 'Indestructabe II'... ie, what happened to the Indestructable I?  :D

Heh, I like that one :) Let's make it indestructible II then ;)

List of names completed!

The Terrorific fleet of Bob, Mutilator of Chickens.

Desolador: Hysterical Ex Girlfriend

Hades #1: Tamidian (one forum's internal joke)
Hades #2: American Coffee (strikes terror in every soul)

Devastation #1: Elune (an other forum's internal joke: a spammer)
Devastation #2: Fanboy

Slaughter: Indestructible II
Slaughter: "If you can read this, you are in teleporter range"


Endline candidates:
- Jerk of India (internal joke)
- Devious Mother
- Party blower (NOTE: In spanish the literal translation would be "Mother-in-law Killer")
- Lupus AKA "By Khorne, I should stop watching House"

Along the lines of the Indestructable II, an old computer game called Myth had a unit called the 'wight', which was essentially a zombie that could explode like a bomb.

Some clever fellow made the name 'Veteran Wight'.

I often use a thesaurus to help with names, especially with Chaos ships.  Stick in one evilly sounding word and see if it comes up with any good alternatives.  I put in 'traitor' the other day:

My Webpage

Fancy a ship called Benedict Arnold?  :)
