Default Need Help with Cool words

I'm not sure how to express what i mean here. You know the plaques and srolls that adorn terminator armor? Often on the chest, shoulder pad, knee or fist you see these empty spaces, begging for words. But not just any words... hard words. Marine style words. Well, i need some help thinking of a few. I'll give you the list that i have so far, and then you guys can help me out by suggesting more.

duty
cleanse
faith
protect
serve
purify
submit
doom
purge
repent
rend

That is all i have so far. I'd like to have no duplicates, and i'll need about twice what i have here to complete the deathwing. keep in mind that the words need to be somewhat short, no longer than about 6 or 7 letters, since i have to fit them on the scrollwork.

Thanks in advance, and have fun!

Oh, but those are good! Yeah, you've got the idea, Vash. Keep 'em coming. Maybe I'll save "Vengeance" for the Land Raider

Bring them all destruction...suffering and pain...

Well, there you go. That's three words, thanks Man o War

Just read an emo blog...you'll find all kinds of Mariney words, including the above and following:

Sanguine
Misery
Contempt
Scar
Agony
Woe
Lament
Forlorn
Anguish
Despair

Throw in a delivery service or generic icon and you've got a Marine Chapter. Bringers of Despair, Avatars of Woe (ohhhh, come on, you know that one ), Scions of Misery, Angels of Agony or some other name...

Honour
Courage
Humility
Valour
Audacity

Some more and a few multi word ones that could go on tanks:

Smite
Abolish
Vindicate
Absolution
Devotion
Saint
Angel
Death
Mortality
The Emperor Protects
No Mercy

Its always fun to fill the empty spaces with something interesting. On my Tau tanks I wrote phrases in the Tau script, now that I have a Land Raider to paint Ill have to try something interesting on it aswell.

I'm going to try something here... the Marines are based loosely on medieval crusaders, so I'm going to have a look through the New Testament:

Anguish
Punishment
Obedient
Faith
Zealous
Glory
Transgression
Salvation

The older the bible, the better the words.

Nice work, guys. There are some gems in there. For The Land raider, i thought about trying to squeeze "His Will Be Done" on the front. I like "glory' and "fury" a lot, since they are short, but these are all exactly what a wanted, good hard-ass words.

Hehe, you should try the old testament, Bayruun. In Joshua, the Iraelites conquer, plunder and destroy everything in sight! They invaded city after city, murdering everybody! Men, women and children, elderly, blind and lame. The word 'massacre' is rather commonplace. Then, once they'd killed everyone, they'd burn the city to the ground and hang its king!

I guess God did things a little different back then...


EDIT - Ooo, yeah, and there's this bit in chapter 10 when God batters the entire Amorite army into mush with hailstones the size of footballs! How's that for wrath? I tell ya, they don't make artillery like they used to...
