As for any chaos gods, in GW lore, they are almost always portrayed in the easyest way to be understood. Also, never forget the average target customer is a 13-14 yo. I can't imagine a way simple enough to let him understand Tzeentch or Slaanesh unless using monothematic statical images. However, if we sum all the fluff and lore and hints we gets during the 40 years of GW history, we pretty much have a clear vision of Khorne as a violent, proud, contemptuous, angry, martial god. A sort of Mitra on meth. Is he the Blood God? Well, hell yes, it is. Is he the Warrior God? Hell yes. Is he the Collector of Skulls? Yes! Of all the more "subtle" aspects, however, in a grimdark and brutal galaxy, where a starship can obliterate a continent, the "Blood God" seems the most easy to worship and comprehend. KILL MAIM BURN!! In the end, it all goes down to that.
KILL THE WEAK! SLAY EVERYONE!! SKULLS!! MORE SKULLS FOR THE THRONE!!!
(in that...isn't Khorne, on his brazen throne, a sort of mockery of the Emperor? He wants skulls for his throne, while emperor wants psykers...both demand endless carnage of their enemies...funny thought...)

The calls of Slaneesh stir so deeply within me, as if I was birthed from the very essence of it. For my ambition to infinitely ascend above all is never ending, like fire within it burns me to ever cindering ash. Lord of light and ascension is who I am, realities burn to ash at my very passing. My luminescence is unparalleled for I am luminosity itself, all light is but a shadow of my silhouette
