Due to some.... annoying. Circumstances, I've been less than active on the Necros front. However I can promise this weekend there wqill be a Vespera uber post. In the mean time I have something else for you, and no its not herpes. Its ANOTHER article drive! >=D
Well, it kinda is, its hard to describe exactly WHAT I need of you....
However, long story short, after some deliberation I decided to 'normalise' large parts of the Machina. Modified weapons and custom vehicles are all cool and such but confuddling. Very confuddling. So, in a attempt to normalise things, I'm going to enlist you all into making weapons, vehicles and ships for them, remember, big, effecient and not nessaceryily something in line with Geneva Conventions. As for naming them, honestly, I have no idea for a naming convention for them. I'll leave that to you, my adoring underlings! As for weaponry, largely ballistic weapons with energy support, similar to the UNSC, though for warships, have a 'main weapon space' for a large energy weapon or a MAC/Rail Gun supported by Plasma Lances and point defence lasers. On one note, I have two SMGs, a Assault Rifle, a cruiser, two dropships and a heavy fighter already in the works myself.
However, that is not all
The Guardians require ship classes as well, but first off a naming convention for them, once we can nail down a accurate naming convention for them we can get to work >:D
However, thats STILL not it.
The Enclave awaits. I need some kind of naming system for vehicles and their numerous drones.
Okay, new plan, what I'm gonna do is put a list of weapon classes for the Machina and a gallery. Stick the weapon images in the gallery in order (so its easier to navigate). It its scratched out, its got a image, either donated by you kind fellows or i've got one in the wings. Also, feel free to add your own kinds of weapons to the template. <Death to Heroes>[The Damned][The Lost][The Forgotten]|DeusExAjax

I just found a pic with Alien ships. Not sure they'd suit the Machina or Guardians at all, but I thought I should show the pic anyway so you can criticize it yourself, Ajax. If you like them, then I can cut the pic down into all the ships on it for individual ship pics and alter in paint if necessary. Cheers,

Okay, update, i created a system for naming Machina vehicles and weapons, or at least the 'model' names. Take the Lineage that made them, the weapon/vehicle type and then add a 'M-number goes here'. So the Kreigor made 'heavy pistol' becomes KPM-3, etc. The Gaust made Main Battle tank becomes the GMBTM-12 and so on. However, names for vehicles and ships hasn't been made yet, but it may become a series of Transformer references :P <Death to Heroes>[The Damned][The Lost][The Forgotten]|DeusExAjax
Third time's a charm, they say :)
Anyway, I just found out a naming scheme for The Guardians' vessels. They should use names like Guard/Guardian, Protector, Vanguard, Sentry and Mantle on the top for luck. For example: Mantle-class Dreadnaught, Vanguard-class Assault Carrier, Guard/Guardian-class Supercarrier, Sentry-class Destroyer and so on. Tell me if you think it sucks and I should have Angel punish me or if it's cool and that you'll use it :)
I think we should use names like Peace or Freedom or words that indicate such things, cause if my theory is right, they're trying to be free from someone, right? Freedom-class Battlemech and Peace-class Drone. Just giving thoughts. Cheers,
Gaaah, in love with the baddies from Fallout 3, eh, Jax? I think you should at least import their power armor... Regards, not adoring, not underling, "Your President, John Henry Eden..." SPARTAN-091[Admin][Talk] 02:43, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, the grenade launcher, the flamethrower, and the minigun are from GOW, the missile launcher is from Fallout. thought they looked like something the Machina might use.
Just ol' AR, But I'd like to think that the Enclave's naming system could possibly be based on Angels or Angelic names? (i.e. Seraphim, Cherubim...) plenty to go around, as long as people avoid confusion with Covenant vehicles.

Funny you should say that, my original idea for their warships was to name them after individual angels (IE, Metatron-class Cruiser, Uriel-class Cruiser) but the idea kinda ran outta steam with me, and the order of angels won't work, i used every possible angelic order, that isn't stupidly name, along with a few orders of fallen angels, for USR Air Power. However I did come up with the idea of mythic monster slayers and hereos, to match the Necros' ship names of monsters, though if Somebody can write up a 'total listing' for ship classes using either of those ideas, I'll use 'em (IE you get ships for the enclave of similar classes to the USR named.) <Death to Heroes>[The Damned][The Lost][The Forgotten]|DeusExAjax
By the way, the gears 2 weapons are for brutes because they're made by the PI (i just haven't gotten round to finishing them). So i would prefer it if you got some other pictures because they're already taken in a way. Sorry,
So, after I found these and showed them to Ajax (myself and him both had accounts on where these pics came from), I uploaded them. Names/ship classes are forthcoming. -- Sgt.johnson 17:42, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
