* SolarSail: The Eldar ships.

to:

* SolarSail: The Eldar ships.Craftworld and Corsair starships are propelled by large solar sails. In game this is represented by Eldar ships having three movement speeds representing whether they are moving towards, away from or parallel to the sun, meaning that they have to tack like a sailing ship in order to get the best speed across the battlefield.

** They are a spaceship sized woodchipper on a giant set of engines with some guns. No frills, just a solid metallic mass of "get over there and make holes where no spaceship should have holes, one of which is the rough size and shape of ''this ship''." Screw kroozers, those things are the avatars of Mork (or was it Gork?).
** Ramming is an Insane tactic as far as the other factions are concerned. Would you charge across ''thousands'' of kilometers of empty space under enemy fire to hit the other guy, most probably after sustaining crippling damage? Insane. But as Imperium puts it, "Only the Insane have the strength to prosper, only those who prosper can judge what is Sane." Or perhaps [[MemeticMutation "Fly me closer, I want to hit them with my sword."]]
*** In fact, [[WordOfGod Andy Chambers]] is on the record stating that the approximate scale was 1cm tabletop ~ 1,000km.
*** Plus they have faith in the Emperor and armored prows to see them through it. Ramming from an Imperial or Ork ship can be brutally effective and is a great last hurrah for a crippled ship.

** Ramming is an Insane tactic as far as the other factions are concerned. Would you charge across ''tens of thousands'' of kilometers of empty space under enemy fire to hit the other guy, most probably after sustaining crippling damage? Insane. But as Imperium puts it, "Only the Insane have the strength to prosper, only those who prosper can judge what is Sane." Or perhaps [[MemeticMutation "Fly me closer, I want to hit them with my sword."]]

* GeneralFailure: Abaddon has managed to lead thirteen Black Crusades, attacks by nine legions of daemonically superpowered space marines and hundreds of millions of cultists, to failure.
** That is at least how Fanon tends to depict him due to GW's inability to tell a story until 6th edition. Now it is clear that the only attempts to "March to the Heart of Terra" was the 13th Black Crusade while the rest of them were (relatively) limited operations with a specific goals in mind. Said 12th Black Crusade, the Gothic War was an attempt to capture and/or neutralize Blackstone Fortresses. At the start Imperium had 6. Now Abby has 2, Imperium has none and defensive abilities of the Gothic Sector are greatly diminished.

** Imperial ships are mile-long space cathedrals packed with impossibly advanced weaponry... but their building-sized gun turrets are turned ''by hand''. Hundreds of hands per turret, in fact.
