  • Unit nicknames with an attitude

    In the same spirit of City names with an attitude I'm wondering who else nicknames their units, and as what?

    For example:
    Engingeers: Army Corps of Engineers
    Riflemen: Army Reserve
    Howitzers: Shock Troops
    Spies: Special Agents (or CIA)
    Cavalry and other decent older units: VFWs (Veterans of Foreign Wars)

    after Automobile, I also refer to units like pikemen and archers as museum pieces or Wonder starters

    I'm sure there are people with far more creative names than me

    So, what's out there?
    Insert witty phrase here

      Since you really can't assign name to units like you can to cities, I've never really thought about it... But I do have a name for opposing civ units... "TOAST"

        Howitzers are Howies
        A spy is "My Woman"
        Horsemen = horses
        Knites = horses
        Cavalry, dragoons = horses
        Diplomat is a "wannabe"
        Sub = Red Button
        Transport = Caravan ferry

        Thats all I can think off the top of my head. To give you more would requir deeper thought... I am not ready for that yet.

          I called the militia in CivNet for "bug". Don't you think it looks like a bug?
