** [[spoiler:Meryn turns out to be a ''massive'' dipshit but his resentment is not entirely unfounded, being a Tanith-born who were led to fight and fight and fight other people's wars for years without any sign of Gaunt fulfilling the promise of giving them a new home]].

*Eszrah ap Niht. [[spoiler:Just about we are led to think he's getting to see more of the world outside, FUCKING MERYN put a bullet in his back during their scuffle with Felyx]].

* The situation Felyx Chass is put into. [[spoiler:Originally Merity Chass, a ''daughter'' born of Gaunt and headmistress of Chass noble house, she is disguised as a man and sent to Imperial Guard in order for her mother who has no male heir to remain a political power on Vervunhive. And she still loves her mother, even though being quite needy as a result, in spite of it all]].

* ''Only In Death'' is a particularly grief-filled book. The time when [[spoiler: they find Gaunt, still alive despite [[ColdBloodedTorture his sufferings, blinded, and desperate to know if anyone else had survived]] at the hands of the Blood Pact]] would be a tear-jerker, if it weren't competing with the point at which Hark discovers [[spoiler: Soric as a [[BlindSeer sanctioned psyker]], [[ManlyTears cries]], and [[ICannotSelfTerminate kills him]]. Doubly so in that Soric is generous and good-hearted to the end: in face of Hark's horror at what the Black Ships did, he tries to reassure him, though he had clearly suffered torments, and even before he asks for death, he assures Hark that he had been trying to help them, not hurt them; he tells Hark he has nothing to forgive him for and warns him to do it properly, so he won't be punished; and finally he ensures that Hark knows Gaunt is alive]]. Hours of shock and grief for this troper.

* [[spoiler: Caffran]]'s death in ''The Armour of Contempt'' hit ''hard.'' Even though this troper knew it was going to happen well in advance (sucker for spoilers), the part at the very end where Zweil is speaking out last rites had me sobbing.
** I started to get tears in my eyes as soon as the kid had the gun... that he got killed due to trying to save the child because it reminded him of [[spoiler: Dalin]].



** Also involving Dorden this part caused this troper to cry.

* The entire sequence where Mkvenner and Kolea are healed by the Beati Sabbat in ''Sabbat Martyr'', but particularly when Kolea looks to Sabbat, tears in his eyes, and pleads for her to "make [Ven] better". Kolea carried his bed-ridden comrade down Emperor knows how many flights of stairs because he had heard the waters cured all wounds, and he wasn't about to take "no" for an answer.
** Immediately thereafter, when Kolea returns to the Ghosts' billet, their banter is at first ActuallyPrettyFunny ("I think she mostly healed Ven, [[SelfDeprecation I just got in the way]].") with some barbs tossed around between friends (Varl: "Do you think she'd heal me?" "[[VitriolicBestBuds She only heals the deserving]]."), but it takes an abrupt turn for the serious when the terribly scarred Chiria asks if the Saint would heal her. All Kolea can think to say is "[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming I'll ask]]."

* This troper found a TearJerker moment in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' literature, of all places. The moment in question was the death of [[spoiler:Colonel Colm Corbec, treacherously stabbed in the back by Lijah Cuu]], in the GauntsGhosts novels. After finishing that book, he was unable to get the scene out of his head (and thus unable to sleep) for at least an hour.
