    I've recently taken a liking to the Undead roster, and I've played half a dozen games or so with a TT team at the club, but I still don't have a name or a theme for the team yet. My previous team themes that I've used has been fairly straightforward; Wood Elfs (homosexuals), Underworld (Video Game heroes), Slann (people I know), but I'm completely lost on what to name my Undeads.

    So a brainstorming thread it is! Give me all your suggestions, good and bad alike!

    And go on working on names from the Nile area:

    Or go with snooker players:

    Jimmy wight

    perhaps great writers:

    Plato and Homer
    Dickens and Hemmingway
    Steinbeck, Lindgren, Bradbury and Phillip K. Dick
    Gaarder, Guillou, Høeg and just take your pick there are tons to take from

    I suggest 'The Cavity Creeps'...

    for anyone that doesn't know, there was an old Crest toothpaste commercial with these large grey-suited monsters marching toward teeth with the motto 'we put holes in teeth! we put holes in teeth!' it was pretty funny.. and of course the 'Crest Avenger' came and stopped them.

    From there the names really pick themselves:
    Halitosis, Gingivitis, Plaque, etc...

    Props for Usagi and Jazz, John :D

    My new Undead team is called Material Ghouls, btw... any pun with with Ghouls substituting Girls usually works out.

    Working Ghouls would be a nice theme... or perhaps Spice Ghouls?

    Gunned Dead. Player names should be obvious - Kennedy, Lincoln, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, John Lennon etc.

    Edit: I'm totally making this team on Cyanide when I get home tonight if the name is available.

    Playing as Undead you should definately have a name with "boner" in it. I went for "Angry Boners" on my CTA Undead team and you are welcome to that name for tabletop. Or any derivation really as long as you include the word "boner".

    Maybe start with Draugadróttinn (one of Odins many names, means Lord of the Undead) and then add different Lords of Undeath from different sources.

    All the different God Myths have their gods or lords of the underworld.
    Maybe name the zombies after Voodo gods? Lua? whatever they are named.

    And so on.

    Kindof standard. But I really like the name Draugadróttinn... :)

    Name them Worse Necro, then give two of your Ghouls Frenzy as first skill.

    Perhaps Katla should be saved as a name for the bloodthirster on the new khorne team?

    Dead Jedi's!

    Walking dead!

    Seems to be plenty of zombies in that serie.

    Make a team with Cristopher Walken characters.

    Fantastic. I think I'll save it for when I can convince my LC that Brettonia aren't broken :)

    I went with the writers theme, by the way. Thanks all for the awesome suggestions, but being an English teacher, I just had to go with the writers. I named the team Dead Poets' Society, and I named all the players after my favourite writers, Shakespeare, Marlowe, Blake, Shelley, Poe and everyone else (even some actually living authors, although I expect that to change).

    Thanks again for all the suggestions, guys. I think I'll save a few more for upcoming teams. :)

    Was this the face that launched a thousand ships? / And now lies smeared 'cross the pitch?

    It's a nice theme and I have an Undead team in the Cyanide game with the same name and idea, although I would never name my players after any non dead poets, as that kind of defeats the purpose of the theme! :rolleyes:

    Just make sure the "living" ones are ghouls and it should be ok.
