** Possibly a NegatedMomentOfAwesome: during the Great Crusade, the Iron Warriors were treated as semi-expendable workhorses by the other legions, delegated with all the most gruelling fortification and garrison duties due to their dependability and refusal to admit defeat, without even offering them any respect for their contributions (as in, commanders asking legionnaires to dig trenches would be met with "Why aren't you getting the Iron Warriors to do this?"). Leaving ten Astartes to watch over 130 million people wasn't out of being badass, it stemmed from the Imperium treating the Iron Warriors as the NoRespectGuy, and this treatment ultimately led to Perturabo siding with the traitors when the Horus Heresy broke out.

Leaving ten Astartes to watch over 130 million people wasn't out of them being badass, it stemmed from the Imperium treating the Iron Warriors as the NoRespectGuy, and this treatment ultimately led splitting the legion ever thinner to control more planets. Is it any wonder Perturabo siding sided with the traitors when the Horus Heresy broke out.out?

** And oh does he deliver: Silver Towers popping all over Fenris, one of the Wolves planets destroyed, a daemonic incursion within the Fang itself, all topped off by showing up in person to lay an utter smackdown on the Wolves and Grey Knights. Grand Masters, tank columns, a dozen Rune Priests, ''battleships'', nothing comes even close to stopping him before [[spoiler: Grimnar gets a lucky shot in with a bit of help from Khorne.]]

*** And, in the most recent book? [[spoiler: That weapon allows him to deal enough damage to pierce Magnus the Red's armor, temporarially killing a PRIMARCH!]]

** Creed and the Cadian 8th [[LastStand stay behind to hold the line]] against the infinite tide of daemons pouring into Cadia, allowing others to evacuate the doomed planet, until literally the very last moment. As 1d4chan put it in a short and awesome line, '''the planet broke before the Imperial Guard did'''.

** Special mention goes to Jarren Kell, Creed's lifelong friend and Colour Sergeant. When Creed was to be assassinated by the Bringers of Despair, Kell did not hesitate to form a rearguard action against them, sacrificing his life to save Creed's. The Bringers of Despair are Abaddon's personal elite guard of Terminators, some hailing from before the Heresy when they were still the Justaerin, the personal guard and champions of ''Warmaster Horus''. It takes ''titanium balls'' to stand up to these guys and succeed, even if suicidal.
