'Skulls for the Skull Throne' here as well. with 'RAAARGH' and 'KILL! MAIM! BURN!' coming in closely behind.

I always thought it was:

Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne of Khorne!

Which would be abbreviated to 'Skulls for the Skull Throne'.

skulls for the skull throne, they keep the same numbers of sylables
----- (blood for the blood god)
----- (skulls for the skull throne)
------- (skulls for the skull throne of khorne)

skulls for the skull throne of khorne doesnt fit.

anyway, as a khorne fan myself i stick to karn's easy to remember chant of- ''kill, maim, burn,kill, maim, burn,kill, maim, burn,kill, maim, burn,kill, maim, burn,kill, maim, burn,kill, maim, burn,kill, maim, burn.....'' and so on :skull:

Look, its in the wiki:

*waits for some muppet to edit it so they can try to prove themselves right*

wikipedia is far from a reliable source, as you just pointed out- any muppet can edit it and the contents of wikipedia are full of errors and lies.

Only Karn (Kkkkkkaaaaaarrrrrrnnnn....yeah i did it) says that.

Well, unless you belive Dawn of War, and you know we dont. :p

I agree with everyone else about the original question, but am I alone in thinking 'Kill! Maim! Burn!' is a dumb khornate battle cry?

The killing and burning is fine, but what self-respecting follower of Khorne goes into battle intending merely to maim people? If they've still got their heads on, you MUST TRY HARDER.

the more slices that maim something before actually killing it the more it bleeds duh! :skull: lol

That is so close to sigworthy.

The quicker it bleeds, you mean. Still nine pints in total, no matter what way you cut it.

Besides, hadn't 'Murder, Death, Kill' already been taken?

MDK? We haven't had one of those in thirteen years!

Also, I don't know how to use the three seashells either.

I'm going to agree with the "keeping the same tempo" crowd, and I have voted as such.

As has been pointed out repeatedly, it's "Skulls for the Skull Throne!"

Biscuits, however, are also acceptable to the great Lord Khorne, Master of War, King of Blood, providing they're proper biscuits, no chocolate, just biscuit. The chocolate, when dunked, just melts into the skull of warm blood, you see. Spoils the taste.

So, actually, you could yell: "Biscuits for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!" and also be right.

EDIT: :D Hurrah! 5,500th post! :D

I remember also: "Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Throne of Khorne". But can´t remember where it is, any knowledge?

Gen.Steiner
16-10-2007, 22:37
Sorry, I don't know where that is. It sounds likely, and to be honest I suspect all the permutations could and have been used.

Officialy it's
"Blood for the blood god, skull for the skull throne of khorne"
but because berzerkers want to kill stuff instead of yelling pointlessly long battlecries they shorten it to:
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!
Also, there's a pretty big chance that the berzerkers just stole Khârns motto with the following reason:
I have 20K/M(kills/minutes)
Khârn has 40K/M
I yell "Blood for the blood god, skull for the skull throne of khorne"
Khârn yells "maim, kill burn"
Ergo, his battlecry is better.
Ergo, i should steal it.
"MAIM KILL BURN MAIM KILL BURN RWAAAAAAAAW!!!"

I'm still laughing at muskrat's version: "Frappucino for the Blood God! Cancel Khorne's Four o'clock!"..
"BLOOD AND SKULLS!" works too. Wait, if they don't say, "..for Khorne!", does He not receive his due? Where's Dante'sInferno when ya wanna ask whether and how all the blood and skulls actually make it to Khorne.. ?:angel::skull:
