* 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.

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.]]

* 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.

* The audio-drama ''Honour To The Dead'' has a squad of Ultramarines - a Legion often characterised as being prideful and arrogant - in the middle of the battle of Calth - the worst disaster to befall their Legion - helping a random woman and her baby get to safety, ''simply because it's the right thing to do''.

* Fulgrim, seemingly genuinely, complimenting Perturabo's vision of a rebuilt Olympia towards the end of ''Angel Exterminatus''. Given that by this stage Fulgrim is not only a colossal bastard, but has spent most of the book trying to use Perturabo's life energy to ascend to daemonhood, it's surprisingly touching.

** The sheer amount of restraint that the White Scars exercise when the conflict between those who favor Horus and those who favor Terra inevitably comes to a head. No active purge of its members via surprise betrayal, like the Luna Wolves, Emperor's Children, Death Guard, or World Eaters. No for the Evulz dog-kicking like the other traitor legions at Isstvan. Just a sudden surprise takeover that would have succeeded relatively bloodlessly if it weren't for a meddling human and an observant loyalist Khan, who in turn tries to avoid killing his fellow comrades if at all possible. Not to mention the only reason Chaos ever came close to subverting the legion was by manipulating their natural trust for those they consider BloodBrothers, as well as how it is ultimately resolved not by a bloodbath but by Jaghatai Khan and Targutai Yesugei arriving in time to reveal the truth that they spent half the book uncovering. Turns out Ignace Karkasy was right, back in ''Horus Rising'': the truth is all we have.
