So, I decided to do up a Space Marine force for Warhammer 40K (yes, I'm a nerd) and after resolving to do something with a nice bright colour scheme, went looking through the fluff to find a chapter I liked. So of course I ended up with the Raven Guard, whose colour scheme is exactly what you'd expect from a chapter based on Edgar Allan Poe's best-known work.

Anyway, somewhere along the line I'll be doing some back banners for them, and it occurred to me that they need mottoes. For reasons beyond my ken, the language spoken by the genetically-engineered supermen of the far future is Latin, which presents the irresistible temptation for bad in-jokes. The only problem is, I've forgotten most of the Latin I ever knew.

So, anybody able to provide translations for the following? Preferably terse, since they need to fit on smallish banners, and I'd rather avoid versions that could be mistaken for racial epithets.

For the No. 1: "Dye it black!"
For the scouts: "Do Your Best" and "Made With Real Scouts".
For (not yet decided): "How much more black could it be?" and "None more black".
For the Dreadnought: "Caw! Caw! Bang! [profane expression of surprise and vexation!] I'm dead!" (I'm guessing this might not be practical, but worth a shot.)

Other suggestions for bad jokes welcome...
