What is the coolest "official" warcry out there in GW country?

Par example: Iron within, Iron without. Blood for the blood god etc etc...

Minister

Not a warcry as such, but I've allways liked:

"It's another day nearer the battle,
So drink up my lads and look brave!
Because another day nearer the battle
Is another day nearer the grave."

Of course, nothing will stop the combined forces of the Order of the Bloody Rose, Mordian 31st Redshirts and the Most Holy Ordo Hereticus shouting "It's a witch!" at even the most flimsy provocation.

Also the Red Corsair renegades warcry of just ' a tirade of expletives and threats across all vox-caster frequencies as they ambush enemy ships and settlements' - just found it funny.

This isnt a war cry but i find it so damn ruthless.:evilgrin:
Iv read this somewhere in a BL book (think it was Draco) when a Arbiter Judge arrests a genestealer magus a hive city and start reding him his rights.

As the following:
"Your under arrest for breaking the Imperiatus Parahgraphus 99366-3/3 for beeing a non human life form. You do not have the right to remain alive, you do not have the right to object! You are found guilty of this crime and executin shall be carried out immideatly"

"Victory is our's, defeat is your's."
That my Dark Knight marine chapter's warcry, not the greatest but I like it.

The greatest warcry in the 40K universe is "Waaagh!". Let me prove it:

First of all, Waaagh! is not only an Ork warcry, it is also the name of an major Orkish jihad/pubcrawl. The word itself is does not simply have three A's either, it is also spelled with an exclamation mark. Lastly, and most importantly, it defines them. The word embodies everything it is to be an Ork: agression, violence, brutality, disorganization, and a passion for war. The word itself is so simple and barbaric, as if Orks are to busy killing to construct an intelligable warcry.

That is why Waaagh! is the best warcry in 40K.

(well, in my opinion...)

How about "Death from Above?" That is quite an old one, back from the RT days.

"Hawkmoon! Hawkmoon!" is a good one, but not quite GW.

Some handy unofficial ones for Imperial Guard forces:
-"I'm still standing!"
-"Burn, baby, burn!" (heavy flamer support squad, F co XII Catachan rgt)
-"It's gettin' hot in here!" (Cadian plasma gunners traditional war shout)

"Blood for the Blod God!" Takes the cake for GW official ones.

"Exterminatus!" Is one I genuinely cry with glee before rolling handfuls of lasrifle dice at my opponents Orks.

And when those little grey soldiers actually manage to best the enemy in hth, a comment of

"Just....so.....angry....." Allways pays tribute to the brave little guys.

On the edge of codex:
1."Let The Galaxy Burn!"
Reason: very, very 40K. It is just like " In the grim darkness of far future, there is only War!'
2. "Innocence Proves Nothing"
Reason: it is just cold and cool when you imagine there is the inquisitor who standard at the front of a traitor/heretic/witch and say this while he execute him/her/it.
3. "Duty And Honor"
Reason: From IG, it tells you they are not marine, nor inquisitor, nor other uber high rank killing machine; they are normal man, man who fight to defend their home and the Honor of humanity.

Any of you familiar with A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's fantasy series?

Some of the noble house mottoes would make good battlecries. Examples:

House Lannister: Hear me roar!
House Baratheon: Ours is the fury!
House Targaryen: Fire and blood.
House Martell: Unbent. Unbowed. Unbroken.

If I ever succumb to the dark side and start a marine army, I'll paint 'em up in Targaryen colors; mostly 'cuz I think a battle standard reading "Fire and blood" would look cool.

"enemies in front of me, enemies behind.. enemies to the left, and enemies to the right... they can't escape!"

I belive that qoute is from General "Chesty" Morgan at the battle of Puson in the Lorean War. Granted, this is from memory and the Korean war is NOT my specialty.

I also seem to remeber a similar quote from WWI from a French commander (Petain?) who said... "The enemy is pushing back the left, they are pushing back our right, they are pushing back our front... situation excellent. I am attacking."

DEAR GOD! CHESTY MORGAN WAS A STRIPPER!!!!! LOUIS B "CHESTY" PULLER HOWEVER WAS THE GREATEST MARINE EVER!!!!!!

and the the quote is

"They are in front of us, behind us, and we are flanked on both sides by an
enemy that outnumbers us 29:1. They can't get away from us now!"
- Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller, USMC
When the Marines were cut off behind enemy lines and the Army had written
the 1st Marine Division off as being lost because they were surrounded by 22
enemy divisions. The Marines made it out inflicting the highest casualty
ratio on an enemy in history and destroying 7 entire enemy divisions in the
process. An enemy division is 16500+ men while a Marine division is 12500 men.




I belive that qoute is from General "Chesty" Morgan at the battle of Puson in the Lorean War. Granted, this is from memory and the Korean war is NOT my specialty.

I also seem to remeber a similar quote from WWI from a French commander (Petain?) who said... "The enemy is pushing back the left, they are pushing back our right, they are pushing back our front... situation excellent. I am attacking."

Woops, I knew that I shouldn't read history sites and B-movie sites at the same time. It rots the brain! Any idea on that French Quote?

From the old RT book written on the shoulder pad of someone firing an Autogun. "If you can read this... your dead."
