* [[spoiler: Having spent most of ''The Path of Heaven'' treating his [[WeUsedToBeFriends former comrade]] Torghun Khan like crap, (justifiably, given that Torghun attempted to turn the Vth Legion to side with Horus, an event resulting in the injuries that nearly crippled him), assigning him the worst duties and denying him a place in the battleline, as well as telling Torghun he can ''never'' atone for what he's done, after hearing how Torghun and his fellow Sagyar Mazan's HeroicSacrifice in fighting Mortarion and the Deathshroud bought enough time for the rest of the White Scars to escape to safety, Shiban Khan forgives his former friend, acknowledging that Torghun's last act ''did'' make amends for his past wrongs and Shiban expresses regret that he wasn't there to fight beside Torghun at the end]].

* In ''Master of Mankind'', Captain Dominion Zephon of the Blood Angels and Prefect Diocletian Coros of the Legio Custodes come across a child refugee, orphaned and alone except for his sister and aunt, who wanted to beseech the Emperor to send the Space Marines to retake his homeworld. Diocletian, already disdainful of base humans, ignores the terrified boy's pleas, while Zephon takes the time to reassure the boy that he is safe on Terra, and that Zephon will convey the boy's request to the Emperor when he is permitted to stand in His presence. In a book loaded with with people throwing resentment and hatred toward the Space Marines for causing the Horus Heresy, this example reminds us that the loyalist Legions at least never lost their humanity. It also questions the humanity of those feeling the resentment.

Even in the DarkestHour of humanity, where all seems doomed and pointless, there are [[HearwarmingMoments sparks of hope]].

* Sanguinius gets a massive one in ''Pharos'' when [[spoiler: confronted by Konrad Curze, and seeing a glimpse of the tortured, wretched being that the Night Haunter has become, the Angel actually offers him a second chance and offers to try and help his dark brother put himself back together again. Curze doesn't take it, but it took an incredible sense of brotherhood and compassion to offer forgiveness to a self-confessed monster like Curze.]]

* Targutai Yesgeui in ''The Path of Heaven''. Slightly TearJerker too; before activating [[spoiler: a device that will allow the White Scars to escape their enemies and reach Terra, albeit at the cost of killing him, Yesgeui uses his last strength to telepathically say goodbye to his Primarch and closest comrades]].

* An awesome one for Lorgar before his demise to Chaos. In ''A Thousand Sons'' we see him defending Magnus during Leman Russ' rampage over Phoenix Crag. For context, [[spoiler:Magnus and his legion struggle to protect Phoenix Crag's great Library, while Leman Russ' wolves charges through the Thousand Sons barraging in an attempt to get in and destroy it. Hastar succumbs to the flesh change as Magnus embraces him to comfort him, only for Leman Russ to gun him down.]] During the Primarchs first confrontation, as Ahriman notes ''with murder in their hearts'', amids their dispute, Lorgar teleports in and convinces Leman and his wolves as well as Magnus and his sons to stand down with his lavish but reasonable speech alone. Lorgar's entrance was indirectly described to be full of sorrow upon seeing his brothers this way.

* In the shortstory 'Unmarked', we get to see more about [[spoiler:Oll Persson and company. To keep them all together facing a demon, first he asks of them to have faith, or in minimum, belief in somenthing. What really makes it work is when they all start singing O Lord and Master of Mankind, which is most likely derived from the prayer O Lord and Master of My Life which is about dealing with sins.]]

** The way Lion welcoms Guilliman. After shows of martial strength their respective forces perform and Guilliman's slight envy of Dark Angels, and knowing that El'Jonson is known for secretiveness and aloofness, we'd expect some formal shake of hands. Instead, Lion embraces Roboute in a bear hug.

** A bit of 40k knowledge makes this even better; one of those Ultramarines would go on to become a Chapter Master of one of the first Ultramarine Successors, the Doom Eagles. A chapter that while being morbid, is also one of the few chapters that truly does care about protecting the people of the Imperium, and it was the moment where their leader saved an innocent child that their creed was born.
