** Yoncy has started making cryptic references to a "bad shadow" in ''The Warmaster''. [[spoiler: It is heavily implied that she has become the host for some sort of Chaos entity that is tied to the incident at the derelict supply depot on Aigor 991, of which her father was a witness.]]

* LoopholeAbuse: In ''Double Eagle'', the Phantine squadrons use the fact that they are Guard units rather than Navy to rebuild their ranks by recruiting pilots from the PDF - the Navy wasn't allowed to do anything with the PDF, but the Guard accepts tithes from local units all the time.

* LegallyDead: One character in ''Double Eagle'' gets shot down, makes his way back to a friendly base, and is told that since they designated him as KIA a week ago, they can't return him to his unit, and are too busy to correct the paperwork. [[spoiler:When the war is over, he takes advantage of the fact that the Guard has yet to recognize the fact that he isn't dead to desert.]]

** In ''The Warmaster'', [[spoiler:''the entire Tanith First and Only'' ends up as this when a bad warp translation launches them ten years into the future.]] Fortunately, this gets resolved fairly quickly, with the only real change being that promotions and decorations that were intended to be posthumous suddenly grant actual authority.

* RankUp: In ''The Warmaster'', Gaunt makes it back to base to find that he'd been posthumously promoted [[spoiler:during the ten years he'd been gone thanks to a bad warp translation]], and since he's not dead, he gets to keep the promotion. A good part of the remainder of the book involves [[spoiler:a plot to unseat Macaroth as Warmaster and appoint Gaunt - who has the rep and the skills, and also has not been involved in any political maneuvering for the past ten years and thus doesn't have the enemies to block him - as his replacement. When Gaunt scuppers that plan, Macaroth appoints Gaunt to be his second-in-command and heir apparent.]]

* CharacterDevelopment: Many of the characters go through changes and revelations over the series. So far, the most notable perhaps is Rawne who starts out having every intention of murdering Gaunt, being chauvinistic about the influx of the women soldiers in the regiment but develops into one of Gaunt's most loyal officers and respecting women in the regiment.

* [[LukeYouAreMyFather Gaunt, You Are My Father]]: In ''Salvation's Reach'', Gaunt is shocked to learn that he has a son, who followed him all the way from Verghast. To his credit, he sees the trope coming just before it's confirmed.
