"Blood for the Blood God" (sometimes followed by 'Skulls for the Skull Throne') is a war cry and motto used by the Legions and servants of the Chaos God Khorne. The motto is in concurrence with the belief that when an enemy is killed in Khorne's name, the blood that is spilled is added to the lake of blood from which Khorne's mountain of skulls arises, atop which the god and his throne sits. There is also the belief that the more blood that is spilt by an individual, the more worthy they are as sacrifices to Khorne.
