Default Re: Names?

Well, the name of the leader for my upcoming Black Templars army will be Tech Marshal Martis. He is a Techmarine that has been recruited by the Adeptus Mechanicus and the Black Templars cooperatively to fight a recent Necron takeover. His name is a Latin variant of Mars.

I have never tried actually writing the fluff but here is my attempt/idea for what the fluff would be based upon. Tech Marshal Martis has received extensive training from the Adeptus Mechanicus during his training as a Techmarine. However, the Adeptus Mechanicus has recently detected an uprising of Necron activity on a small cluster of planets controlled by the Emperor. After lengthy joint discussions between the high priests of the Adeptus Mechanicus and the Marshal of the Profanus Solum(Latin for Not-Sacred-Group) Crusade, Marshal Pius Mucro(Holy Sword), Techmarine Martis was selected to undertake further training in the heretical threat that is the Necrons.
Techmarine Martis went through many months of rigorous training and study before he was deemed fit by the high priests of the Adeptus Mechanicus. He then went through many more months of combat training before he was deemed fit to lead a crusade. This crusade would be forever known as the Malum Mortuus(Latin for Evil Skeleton) Crusade and would be ended only upon the purging of the vile Xenos threat and whatever had caused them to rise from their eternal graves.
During Techmarine Martis's training the Adeptus Mechanicus made quite a few adaptations to his servo-harness. Not only did they upgrade it to a fully customized servo-harness, they also grafted it into Techmarine Martis's very skeleton. It was then blessed by the Holy Omnissiah and The God Emperor himself. The final part of Techmarine Martis's training was also one of his most important. The gift of the only piece of Necron Wargear ever recovered, the dreaded Techno Reaper(a warscythe). The final months of Techmarine Martis's training were in the mastery of this strange and powerful weapon. At the completion of his training there was not great ceremony, only the cold stare of the Mistrustful Marshal Pius Mucro as Techmarine Martis was promoted, forever more to be known as Tech Marshal Martis. However, Marshal Pius Mucro had reason to be mis-trustful for Tech Marshal Martis had become more machine than man. In him, Marshal Pius Mucro saw far more of the enemy than he ever wanted to.
Tech Marshal Martis was allowed to handpick his fighting force from the resources of the Profanus Solum Crusade ans is en route to this day...

This was a special character I had built with the help of the TO members on the Necron forum. Here is a link to all of those that may be interested. http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=26504.0

The beauty of this character and his fighting force lies in the fact that he is beoming one with what he is fighting. He already has the weapon, he already worships one of the C'tan, now all he needs to do is finish "perfecting" his body and he will be a tried and true Necorn Lord. For all of you who don't know, The Omnissiah is actually the "Sleeping God" or "The Dragon" I belive. The Adeptus Mechanicus actually worships one of the C'tan that slumbers right in the middle of the forbidden grounds of Mars. So much irony and so much fun!

Hope this helps a little bit, it may be a bit more than you wanted but what can I say.
