* CosmicHorrorStory: Well into the Heresy, some people within the Loyalist factions begin to suspect that Horus is being manipulated by something, and a much bigger story than the galaxy at civil war is playing out behind the scenes.

* CosmicHorrorStory: Well into the Heresy, some people within the Loyalist factions begin to suspect that Horus is being manipulated by something, and a much bigger story than the galaxy at civil war is playing out behind the scenes. ''The Damnation of Pythos'' is a particularly apt example of this, down to the strange semi-human cultists, reality warping horror, and sealed-away, world-ending, insantiy-causing, unknowable beings from beyond the veil.

While the concept of [[RetCon finally fleshing out]] a {{canon}} backstory for 40k originally excited many long-time fans, the series has been met with widely [[UnpleasableFanbase varied opinions]] from its fanbase. The series is however the Black Library's most popular, with new titles regularly appearing in the New York Times best seller list.

* EpicFail: Sometimes, the greatest obstacle in the villain's path is the villain himself.
** In ''Fear To Tread'', Ka'bandha's plan is to confront the Blood Angels with his armies and amp up the Angels' tendency for UnstoppableRage to the point that they'll do a HeelFaceTurn and start serving Khorne. He apparently missed the memo that UnstoppableRage is, well, unstoppable, and the infuriated Angels overrun his armies and get him killed before he's able to corrupt them.
** In ''Vulkan Lives'', Curze has Vulkan run through an ever-changing maze for the former's amusement, with the promised prize being a hammer with a built-in teleporter. Upon Vulkan finding the hammer, Curze shows up right in front of him to gloat about how the maze has anti-teleportation shields, and his teleporter is useless. Vulkan's response?
-->You forgot about one thing, Konrad... [[PreAssKickingOneLiner It's also a hammer.]]
** In ''Deathfire'', the ship the main characters are travelling on is infested by a gang of daemons which take form of little girls to lure people into close quarters, whereupon they eviscerate them. On their hit list is a pair of techmarines repairing an airless, gravity-less area between two layers of the hull. Some time into the incursion, the main characters meet with the techmarines, and the conversation goes something like this:
-->'''Numeon''': There are daemons on the ship. They look like... \\
'''Techmarine 1''': Children, we know. We've shot one.\\
'''Techmarine 2''': We have realized there's something off when we saw it floating and talking to us without a void suit.

** In ''Betrayer'' Erebus claims that Kor Phaeron has called for reinforcements against Ultramarine pursuit from the Calth assault. However, this takes place several weeks after the attack on Calth, which Kor Phaeron fled from before the mass counter-attack could begin. ''Macragge's Honour'' shows that Kor Phaeron was stranded on Sicarus within the Eye of Terror (far, far away from any Ultramarine counterattack) after his ship was destroyed by the eponymous battleship shortly after fleeing Calth. Even allowing for warp based shenanigans the two events don't synch up. Either that or Erebus was lying for his own gain.

* BreakTheCutie: For a [[{{Badass}} given value]] of [[WhiteSheep "cutie"]], but this is basically what happens to Vulkan. At hands of Curze, he goes from being the nicest of Primarchs to a raving maniac, and all that remains of him is his knowledge of combat and desire to murder Curze.

* AwesomebyAnalysis: The Ultramarines have this as their hat, in addition to ruthless efficiency and peerless discipline. Sergeant Thiel [[spoiler: recognizes that bladed weapons and flames work better against Daemons because of their ritual significance, and also works out the ingress points on his ship that the Word Bearers would use.]]

** The Big E appears as an AmbiguouslyBrown man in golden glowing masterwork PoweredArmor, since his true form is one of such masculine perfection that people either cream their jeans hard enough to brain damage themselves or fall to their knees in worship.

** Most Space Wolves tend to go without. On one side of the argument is that it stifles their senses which they rely on more than other Legions. The other side of the argument is that they're too aggressive to bother. This lead to quite a few deaths that might have been prevented during the Burning of Prospero, as the Thousand Sons were [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy more than wise enough]] to exploit this.
