Currently the only names that are permanent are my Shas'O Ximoro'An and Shas'el Ren'va. The others have had names occasionally but they keep changing. Once I actually finish building my army Ill go through and name all the shas'ui, suits and tanks.

A number I have cooked up

Shas&#39;O Tor&#39;Ores&#39;Shan. It origionally didnt have the Ores, but i thought it sounded too much like a certain Salamander Chapter master so i stuck the extra word in there

Daemon Prince Hephasto: The leader of my IW army. The name is a d2 reference. Anybody who played the game will know who I&#39;m talking about

Aspiring Champion Ferdinand: Leader of the legendary IW "Suicide Squad". They got that name after a string of games where they ended up horribly butchered. Eventually it became part of their character and they now have a tendancy to get sent on the most suicidally dangerous missions I can think of! The name is a reference to Franz Ferdinand (not the band, the guy who got assassinated to spark of WW1)

Warlord "Armageddon Chainsaw Massacre" Gashbad:
The legendary freebootin Warlord! I came up with the name by just stringing together random orky sounding syllables

Krug Blackfang: A former skarboy nob, now wired into the hull of a "Gorkzilla" pattern stompa (counts as looted russ)

Prince Ghidorah: My flying Hive Tyrant. Its more of a funny nickname than anything. King Ghidorah would be a 3 headed harridan...

Shas&#39;O Aun Kauyon Mal&#39;caor &#39;la

"The spider who helps with divine might and infinite wisdom"

And all my Ultramarines are from when the 3rd company re-took the northern polar defences, namely dreadnaught iron claw (holds the honor for the first documented wounding of hive tyrant)
"He may say he fights for the greater good but we know tat his kind cannot be trusted"

"His name doesn&#39;t make any sense! How can you be a commander, Aun AND volenteer at the same time!?!"

My Tau army is led by Shas&#39;el Doran&#39;sha&#39;is, who I may promote depending on the army&#39;s performance on Medusa V.

EDIT: The name translates as Calmwind. As in the calm before the storm.
