The concept of "better ... than" is difficult to express and not very 
warrior-like. I would suggest using the ancient ritual words that 
leaders have used for eons to send their soldiers into battle:

batlh yiHegh SuvwI'mo! yIcheghbe' lujwI'mo'!
Die honorably as a warrior! Do not return as a looser!
