* During the Zoicans' second push, Major Racine of the Vervun Primary, unable to reach his commanding officer (who spent most of the battle freaking out and generally being incompetent and ineffective), grabs as many explosives as he can and charges one of the enemy's heavily-armored siege tanks. Sadly he only makes it a few meters before he's shot through the head and falls...then the tank rolls over him and sets off the charges he was carrying. The ensuing explosion flips the tank over, making it easy prey the Vervunhivers' own tanks.

Added DiffLines:

** Corbec and a young trooper named Genx are pinned down by enemy fire at Veyveyr. Genx is blasting away with his autocannon until an enemy las-round blows off his hand. When he sees the heat has cauterized the wound, he ''simply gets up'' without comment and starts loading the autocannon so Corbec can take over firing.

* For that matter, Handro Rime's reveal. One of the Blood Pact troopers that has been hunting Gaunt for the entire book has been reciting the many names for death. He's getting close to the end of the list right as the final firefight breaks down, and murmurs them under his breath.
--> “Then it is Golguulest,” he was saying, “then it is Nyurtaloth.” Naeme was ebullient. He knew in his heart that the mission his philia had been sent on was almost done, and he knew his rite was nearly done too. There were only a few of death’s names left to be recited.
--> “Then there is Djastah,” he said.
--> “Then there is Rime,” said Rime.
--> Naeme hesitated, and stared at the inquisitor in amazement. There was no denying it. Rime was certainly one of the last names of death.
--> “You,” Naeme breathed. “You are—”
--> Rime raised his hand and caught Naeme by the throat. [[NeckSnap He snapped the Blood Pact warrior’s neck with an effortless flick.]]
--> “Yes,” said Rime, allowing the body to fall. “I am.”

** Major Kleopas, commander of the Pardus tankers, would later be killed in a battle where they faced over ''three hundred'' enemy tanks. His tank was hit by an anti-tank shell, killing his crew, setting him and the tank on fire, and severing his spine below the waist. He burned to death, but not before firing one last shot that allows another tank to kill the offender.

* Marshal Biagi's response plan to the invasion is so robust that even Gaunt is impressed.




to:

* The fight again Karess, a Chaos Marine Dreadnought. The thing bursts from below into a religious ceremony and begins shredding everyone around in an attempt to kill Sabbat. Gaunt manages to cut a few holes in it's armour before the mortally wounded Colonel Kaldenbach nails it with a grenade that knocks it into the pool - where the flamer troopers heat the water and boil the thing alive.
