I have finished Fury, which is a fantasy-themed version of Manoeuvre, although I am still doing some play testing for balance and to look for strange occurrences that haven't been seen before. But I need help with the cosmetic features of the game and I hope some of you will take the opportunity to enjoy a creative release and provide me with a fresh perspective and input.

The first army that I am finalizing is the Humanoids. What I am looking for are unit names, nation names and general names. I also need a flag or a symbol for each unit. Understand that if you submit either naming ideas or art of any kind here that I may use it in the game. Depending on the publisher and space, I will try to credit you. I can by no means provide any payment for your help.

So for the Humanoids, I need a name for the nation they come from. The working title is Vindabona, but it could probably be better.

There are 8 units that make up the army;
Warg Riders
Orcs
Orc Archers
Wraithlords
Hobgoblins
Black Guard
Draconians
Goblins
These units need cool names and a flag or symbol to identify them.

There are four currently unnamed Generals who all need suitable names.

Orcs: Hammerfall (hammer symbol, of course)
Orc Archers: Blood Reign (arrows symbol, of course)
Wraithlords: Accursed Whispers (specter logo)
Hobgoblins: die Verwirrung (comet symbol)
Black Guard: Krieg Kult (black flag)
Draconians: Death's Head Legion (moth symbol)
Goblins: Grunwald Brigands (pirate symbol)

Yes everyone, feel free to throw in your two cents. The more ideas I have, the better the final product will be.
