No, it isn't evil but that's the point. Picture the scene:


Your enemies are laughing and mocking, thinking a ship with such a cute name is crewed by teenage girls with Chiwawa's in their handbags. In fact, you should have a teenage girl with a chiwawa contact the Imperial's just to keep up the illusion. Their laughter will soon turn to a yellowish puddle on the floor when broadsides, lances, torpedoes, attack craft or whatever suddenly locks onto them and the shooting starts. As their ship is rocked by explosions and the crew start dying, their vox channel is filled with the sound of your crew laughing.


Laughing to the beat of their destruction.

Never played BC but want to throw my 2 cents on how to fight Imperium with vessels names:


1. Freedom of choice/beliefs/speech

2. Habeas Corpus

3. Democracy

4. One's choice

5. Second chance

6. Without tax

7. Equlity of men

8. Human rights

Most entertaining fictional ship name I've ever seen is the Post Dated Check Loan.  I'm not sure how tough it would be to make that work in 40K but it would be very amusing, nonetheless.


(Bonus points if you get the reference.)

A Grand Cruiser named The Truth.


"You can't handle The Truth."


"The Truth hurts."


"The Truth will set you free."


Inviolate Destiny, Torturous Redemption of Mankind, Do Unto Others, Thronebreaker, Assassin, Machina Irae (Machine of Wrath), Unsmitten (a bit of a double entendre, captained by a cold-hearted Plague Marine.  No love, and good luck 'smiting' him), Blacksoul, Blackbane, Warpbreak.


The ship with the longest name I saw was a Slaaneshi vessel.


Magnificient Purveyor of Desired Goods and Services Intended Only to Bring Peace and Harmony to the Servants of the Immortal Emperor on His Throne Whilst In the Employ of a Masterful Mistress Beyond Reproach or Doubt.


There was more to it than that, but I think that name hit the highlights.

"The Truth will set you free."


That's actually my alma mater's official motto.  Of course, we students changed it to "the truth will **** you over".  Which also fits this thread, come to think of it...

We had a RT ship called 'The Righteous Indignation'. 10 points if you get the reference.
