I am going to do this in segments since I do not have time so first off is the Tyranids.

Some of the names are to bastardized for me to translate them back to latin then to english.


Norn Queen(a.k.a Tyranicus Primogenitor)/Tyrannos Praecursor Defintion Tyrant Forerunner

Hive Tyrant For some reason is nearly the same exact defintion of the Norn Queen

Tyranid Warrior/ Tyrannos Gladius Defintion Tyrant Sword

Hormagaunt ( Gauntii gladius) Defintion Gaunt Sword

Carnifex Defintion Executioner

Zoanthrope (Tyranicus Animus Aborrens) Defintion Tyrant spirit

more coming tomorrow

Thats cool. I wish my highschool offered Latin. Though I am taking "Introduction to Latin" in my college course right now. So far I named my Iron Warriors Company "Animus Ferrumae" (Hopefully I named it right) :grin:

I had my son (who is somewhat proficient in Latin) on hand when I was reading Mechanicum to translate the names of the Titans featured in it. They were all pretty cool but I think in some cases the words were more a pseudo-latin than any grammatically or syntactically correct Latin.

Ahh, i did latin for 5 years however it's funny just how much you can forget in such a short space of time. The etymology of many gothic words do have greek or roman roots, but then again so does most European languages. What i think is far more interesting is the visual derivations, e.g. feudal Japan and eldar, space marines and Julius Caesar

Can someone provide some pseudo-latin or latin that fits Blood Raven/Ordo Malleus scripture? Sort of thing you'd see on texts or painted onto vehicle sides to inspire the men.

Better yet, a speech from the book of armaments. :p

I quickly use google to know what the "animus speculam" is, but results show its spelled "speculum" (for ex Lexicanum). Cuase if its spelled speculum it means mirror. So I guess Spirit Mirror could also work.
