Neither is correct.

*tugh Hargh 'op SuvwI'vam
*/Soon some of these warriors will fight (a major confrontation)./

*SuvwI'pu'vam mI'* means /these warriors' number, the number of these 
warriors./ Are they carrying a sign with an eight on it, and the sign is 
going to fight some other warriors' number in a duel?

Note that it's not clear whether it makes a difference whether it's *'op 
SuvwI'vam *or *'op SuvwI'pu'vam.*
