** The Eldar race as a whole, now 'revived' as the Ynneed, crystal-like spirit beings.

* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Roboute Guilliman's]] last appearance. Banishing Kaldor Draigo back into the warp with a punch tends to do that.

** The Outcast Stargod, the Last Safe Haven for ALL races in the galaxy (Humans, Tau, Krorks,... and NECRONS!) founded by Iacob, and now everything is shaping up for their Final Battle vs the Nex's forces.



** Goes with the territory, but the Tau Empire and the Nightbringer's Necrons have been in one for MILLENIA, with the Tau creating more and more advanced weaponry and AI to fight against the ancient and obscenely powerful Necrons. [[spoiler:And then the war ends with a final decisive assault by the Necrons on T'au itself... only for the Necron forces on it to teleport away at the hour of their victory, called away by something else.]]

* MoodWhiplash: Chapter 40, a long string of glorious battles-- Huron's siege of Biel-Tan, the liberation of Macharia, Khaine ambushing the Eastern Fringe Alliance-- ends with the somber account of the "Last Rites of Gheden", where [[spoiler:Szarekh realizes that most of the Necron race is far too gone to be saved and {{Mercy Kill}}s them all.]]

** There are also Vulkan's Nava Astartes AKA the Astartes Mark II. They are stronger in combat than the originals but give up some of the abilities that improved the longitivity of the originals such as the ability to go into hibernation to heal.

* GondorCallsForAid - Subverted; Biel-Tan craftworld does not call for help from other Eldar - but they come nontheless.
* GoneHorriblyRight: The resurrection of Khaine. The Dark Eldar seem to have ignored how close his ties to Khorne really were...
** Or this was their plan all along...
* GoneMadFromTheRevelation: Occurs to Menantus after he [[spoiler:lands on the Angyl world of Ophelia VII.]] He's later seen on Valhalla (somehow), "calmly carving his tale into the irradiated bedrock with a broken femur."

* ZombieApocalypse: Several forms: Nurgle releases a plague that keeps the souls of the dead inside their bodies, in order to prevent human souls from fueling the Star-Father. Ahriman is currently building up his force of mindless Rubric Marines by casting the Rubric on other Astartes, instantly turning them into slaves to his will.
** Typhus causes one to bolster his forces before the [[spoiler: assault on Biel-Tan]]

* LegionOfLostSouls: A new one consisting of non-essential soldiers (read: thugs and mercenaries who wanted to prove themselves and people from penal colonies and criminal worlds) and equipment (obsolete hulls of old Imperial vessels) was created to recover [[MacguffinGirl one woman]] from a necron Tombworld. It is lead by [[TheLastChancers Colonel Schaeffer]].

** Recent WordOfGod implies that the Chaos Gods are not so much independent [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] in their own right so much as 'aspects' of the Nex. That's right. [[strike: Five]] [[strike:[[CameBackWrong Six]]]] ''[[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence SEVEN]]'' of the biggest Big Bads in the galaxy are just parts of an even ''bigger one''.
