** 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.

** 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]].

** Practically true, technically Lucius can only possess you if you enjoy his death. So if he gets killed by an artillery barrage, where the firing troopers can't know who they killed, or by a servitor, which are lobotomized and can't feel anything, he is gone for good.

Added DiffLines:

* OldMaster: Many Space Marines on both sides, since the expected lifespan of an Astartes who doesn't catch a bullet is measured in millennia. And a lot of them were also selected as Astartes candidates in the first place by proving themselves to be badass by the standards of a DeathWorld where reaching ''thirty'' makes one an OldMaster.

* MadeOfExplodium: A game mechanic for vehicles with Hull or Structure Points. Prior to 7th edition, such a vehicle that took a penetrating hit could explode if a 6 was rolled on the damage table. 7th edition changed this to require the bonus from an AP2 or AP1 weapon to cause an explosion; a roll of 6 with any other AP will simply Wreck the vehicle.
