Caedere venimus. nihilum viderunt. Noster oppugnavimus. Caesi sunt. Gladium sumus!
Roughly: We came to kill (a little harsh maybe?). They saw nothing (a little to sniperish?). We attacked (Noster may be left out but in order to keep the two word rythym I added it in). They fell (This is a play on the first set of words but in this case Caedo is passive in form and is used to mean fall not kill). We are sabres ( This phrase actually means "we are swords" but I cannot find a latin word meaning sabre. Maybe there is none?)
So: We came to kill. They saw nothing. We attacked. They fell. We are Sabres (swords)!
Maybe you would like: We came to kill. We attacked. They saw nothing. They fell. We are Sabres!
It was originally based on the phrase "Veni, Vidi, Vici." Vici means I conquered. Oppugno,-are,-avi,-atus means attack. I could change it to conquer if you wish.
The word would be vicimus (I believe after a week and a half away from school, I may be wrong.)
I like the whole latin thing. it just needs to be shorter.
Sabre- If We Cant Do It, It Doesnt Need To Be Done!

Onyx if you didn't copy that (nothing against you if you did) Where di you get vis from? Is that a poetic form?
I actually can't post for a while b/c of Latin. I'm doing Caesar now and he omits stuff and pulls all this crap. He is probably laughing in his grave.
