You may put your nominations here for the "It's All In A Name" contest – what should the new lifetime honorary memberships (or members) be called?

Nominations will be accepted until Thursday at 11am PST.

Hyun of WeeToySoldiers Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:02 a.m. PST

TMPilfers (sounds better than TMPlifers)



The Empers (abbreviated TMPRs).

Daryl G Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:04 a.m. PST

Will members be able to contest why those nominated should NOT be given an honorary membership?

nycjadie Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:06 a.m. PST

Oy. I'm not going there.

How about The Grognards.

[Will members be able to contest why those nominated should NOT be given an honorary membership?]

In the case of those voted by the membership (which I envision to be the majority of the honored ones) – sure, why not.

In the case of any that I grant using my dictatorial-like Editor powers, no.

The Old Guard

the sacred band

mksiebler Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:22 a.m. PST

I like "The Grognards" also…

Or the TMP Lifetime Achievement Award (TMPLAA). If you say that abbreviation fast it sounds like "Templar" (i.e. temp-laa). So "The Templars", as above…


Daryl G Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:33 a.m. PST

How about a posthumus honorary membership

My nomination Is

Adolf Hitler..

Hes done alot for the hobby, not only ww2 but all the sci-fi spin offs

billguy Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:41 a.m. PST

Grognards is good and simple. I was going to suggest it, but
instead I'll just echo nycjadie's suggestion.

Andrew May1 Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:42 a.m. PST

Notice the sudden bad smell as you scroll down the page? Anyway, back to the topic, how about the Don Quixotes?

Nikator Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:44 a.m. PST

I like the Sacred Band- nice one, Remoliv- but how' bout The Senate ?

enrious Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:44 a.m. PST

A knight of the miniature realm. Just think; Sir Larry Brom!


Andrew May1 Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 11:54 a.m. PST

Or perhaps even better, seeing that it is a word that has it's origins in Roman Military Tradition, I suggest;


.. or it's plural as it has the meaning of 'a soldier who has served his time honourably' and in the modern context it is a reward for faithful academic study from Universities.
It has a duality of meaning that I think would really suit the honourary inductees.


JoseVZ22 Aug 2005 11:55 a.m. PST

Aged flatulents? Having been called this by my children, I can only imagine this to be a term of honor and endearment.

How about "The Guard" – applies to multiple genres and periods. Then a nice TMP logo for them – perhaps a green patch with some gold leaves?

@Wolfslair: Phthbbt!

A couple I have:

Lead Rotters

centuriones supernumerarii

mweaver Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 12:49 p.m. PST

My first reaction was "the Immortals", which Prince Prints has already suggested. So I'll second him.

mweaver Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 12:51 p.m. PST

Or the "vanguards".

The Guard.
The Old Guard.

The TMPlars has a nice ring to it, too.

We could call them the TMP LAW: The Miniatures Page Lifetime Achievement Winners


Wolfslairmodels: Inappropriate comment.

Not Grognard. Get something everybody can pronounce the first time— I second "the Old Guard." Even if you don't know the origin, it immediately connotates experience.

cloudcaptain22 Aug 2005 2:11 p.m. PST

I am with Warmaster Charlie's suggestion with a slight tweak:

The Grand Order of the GOLDEN Fez

Lowtardog22 Aug 2005 2:11 p.m. PST

Here goes,

The valiant order of the anorak

The Lost Boys

How about miniature masters?

RobH Inactive Member22 Aug 2005 3:03 p.m. PST

Well you could go the British Army way and call the last of the old guard the "Pensioners"

But probably better to say:


Both imply experience and ability.
