40k is shock-full of badass quotes, sayings, and chants. What are your favorites? Mine is from Gav Thorpe's Path of the Warrior. It's rather long, but very epic:

"The peace is broken, harmony falls to discord, only war remains.

Now we clothe ourselves, with bloody Khaine's own raiment, as a warrior.

In Khaine's iron skin, we clad ourselves for battle, while fire burns within.

The spirit of Khaine, from which we draw our resolve, strengthens within us.

War comes upon us, we must bear it's dark burden, upon our shoulders.

We stand before Khaine, unyielding in our calling, free of doubt and fear.

We do not flee death, we walk in the shade of Khaine, proud and unafraid.

We strike from the dark, as swift as the scorpion, with a deadly touch.

See not with the eyes, but allow anger to flow, let Khaine's gift guide you."

I swear, the striking scorpions are now my all-time favorite aspects.

This is one of the best in my opinion, and it is from one of my favorite characters.

Here is my favourite:

" If a man dedicates his life to good deeds and the welfare of others, he will die unthanked and unremembered. If he excercises his genius bringing misery and death to billions, his name will echo down through the millennia for a hundred lifetimes. Infamy is always more preferable to ignominy."

-Fabius Bile

"If at first you do not succeed, send more men." and "That’s what we do! We die standing!" have always been favorites of mine. Along with the less badass but much funier "A lasgun with a flashlight attached is twin linked"

These are my favourites

"You are all here because you are scum. But you are the Emperor's scum. You have skills that are useful to our Immortal Lord and whether you wish it or no, they will be made use of."
— Colonel Schaeffer to his Last Chancers +++

"I'd check my instruments if I were you. No-one in his right mind would lay a minefield in a place like..."
— reported last words of Imperial Guard Captain Forgus Merd +++

And the last is of my favourite character I've read so far

"Marching through this green hellhole, getting slowly eaten by flies, drowning in our own sweat and choking on sulfur fumes? I can’t see why that’s not a good idea."
— Kage +++

"My sons, the galaxy is burning. We all bear witness to a final truth - our way is not the way of the Imperium. You have never stood in the Emperor's light. Never worn the Imperial eagle. _And you never will._

You shall stand in midnight clad, your claws forever red with the lifeblood of my father's failed empire, warring through the centuries as the talons of a murdered god.

Rise, my sons, and take your wrath across the stars in my name. In my memory, rise, my Night Lords."

I just love this one. So grim and fatalistic it is pure Warhammer 40k. It makes me want to make a whole 5k army of lords despite their rules having been tossed down the memory hole.

Battle cry of the salamanders:

"Into the Fires of Battle!!
Unto the Anvil of War!!!!"

I also like Gabrial Angelos:

"Show me what passes for fury amongst your misbegotten kind!!!"

Also:

"You would have me weigh the continued existence of this planet against the lives of those who defend it? Idiocy! Order them to advance. All of them."
Lord High Commander Hyde-Sytherin Apoc rule book.

And Lastly (fittingly last :p )

Some may question your right to destroy ten billion people. Those who understand realise you have no right to let them live.
