Need help picking a name for a unit.
« on: 14 January 2021, 09:24:47 »
I asked my son recently what kind of weapons he likes and he said LRMs. This is a bit surprising given his favorite units are Battle Armor but I decided to make an LRM heavy mercenary force for an against the bots campaign. I have a general idea of composition already but I need name. So far, this is what I have:
Blizzard of Pain
Snow's Flurries
DFA- Death from Afar
Rocket Men
Missile Totaled
Durassel's Energizers- Why, because they have a lot of batteries.
Cosgrove's Cogs- though only that one if I go ahead and add drone controls to the mechs.
The Mighty Woosh
104 Missile Deployment Force
Spectacular Deliver

The Mighty Mighty Hailstones.

This could be good. At least that's the impression that I get.

"Variety is the spice of battle."
"I've fought in... what... a hundred battles, a thousand battles?  It could be a million as far as I know.  I've fought for anybody who offered a decent contract and a couple who didn't.  And the universe is not much different after all that.  I could go on fighting for another hundred years and it would still look the same."
