** The Ultramarines and the Alpha Legion had a bitter rivalry during the Horus Heresy due to their combat doctrines [[OrderVersusChaos antagonising each other]]. Guilliman trained his legion to be highly disciplined and professional soldiers operating under a carefully considered plan established by a strong chain of command, while Alpharius trained his legion to rely more on unorthodox tactics and personal initiative, performing XanatosSpeedChess and operating like guerillas to keep the enemy guessing. Things tended to go the Alpha Legion's way, in fact Guilliman was only ever able to beat Alpharius [[BatmanGrabsAGun by breaking with Codex Astartes protocol]] - the very document he had created and claimed to Alpharius was superior to any of the younger primarch's complicated deceptions.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[strike: Rowboat Girlyman]] Roboute Guilliman, primarch of the Ultramarines. Sure he could be an ass, but he legitimately cared about the people. His actions and policies would eventually lead to the Ultramar system becoming one of the nicest (and least corrupt) places in the Imperium.
** Though he cared far less about people who didn't follow the Ultramarine example, such as when he killed an entire city as a warning to his brother Lorgar after Lorgar taught them to worship the Emperor, which Guilliman didn't like.
*** He didn't kill anyone, just destroyed buildings And it wasn't Guilliman, who didn't like it, since he was indifferent to religion, but it was order from Emperor.

** Imperial Guardsmen, by nature of all the overpowered wea[onry being lugged around by their superhuman adversaries. Tau weapons in particular tend to have horrific effects on unarmoured and unaugmented humans.

** The Horus Heresy is defeated but The Emperor is incapacitated, most of the loyalist Primarchs are dead and the Imperium's reorganization would twist The Emperor's utopian vision into an Orwellian nightmare of epic proportions.

** Since the destruction of their civilisation during the Fall, the Eldar have been reduced to a collection of nomads, pirates, wanderers and a mysterious cult dedicated to their last surviving god Cegorach. Their epic history spanning millions of years has been lost forever and now only lives on in allegories, songs and prophecies. It's heavily implied that most of it is based on fact: for example the "Talismans of Vaul" are actually gigantic space stations packing [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu weapons powerful enough to kill C'tan permanently]].
** Played very poignantly in one novel where the protagonist is looking through a shop on an Imperial world and finds a number of old beaten-up wooden toys with [[UsefulNotes/SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn "CCCP"]] carved into the bottom of all of them. When she asks the old shopkeeper what the characters mean, he simply shrugs and says "nobody remembers anymore".

** Speaking of which, Tau are the weakest beings in the setting (OK, except for [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Gret]][[ButtMonkey chin]]). They have weaker bones and muscles than humans, and they have much slower focusing speeds and depth perception. This makes them terrible melee fighters, but they make up for this by having some ''really'' powerful guns, being immune to Chaos corruption, and by not being [[LawfulStupidChaoticStupid totally stupid]].
