*** Not really if you consider the vagaries of Warp Travel: a ship can emerge after six months of travel, as measured in the real universe, but with the crew and equipment having experienced and aged only 2 weeks of subjective time...

** Imperial penal legions, entire armies of convicts sentenced to death at the hands of the enemy; [[RedemptionEqualsDeath in death they may be forgiven for their crimes.]] The best known unit is Colonel Schaeffer's "[[TheLastChancers Last Chancers]]", inspired by every war-movie RagtagBunchOfMisfits ever.

* SubsystemDamage:
** The 1st and 2nd Editions ''Warhammer 40’000'' had individual damage charts for each vehicle that randomised which part of a vehicle was struck by an attack. Each location on a vehicle then had its own Armour Value and damage table that could result in anything from minor damage that reduced the vehicle’s effectiveness to the destruction of that specific location or causing a chain reaction that destroys the entire vehicle. When the game was simplified in 3rd Edition this was replaced with a single damage chart, covering damage to every part of the vehicle, that lasted until 8th Edition, which introduced a wound based system.
** Early editions of the ''Epic'' game system used location and damage charts for its Titans, their massive size allowing for the targeting of individual parts of the war machines.

* TimeSkip: Between 7th and 8th edition. Thanks to [[TimeyWimeyBall warp weirdness]] it's anywhere from nothing to 300 years depending on where you're standing. The battle on Baal notably had Imperial reinforcements arrive a century after the Warp Storms began by their reckoning but later the same day from the perspective of the defenders.



** Also, the biggest [[MiniMecha tau battlesuits]] like the Riptide have the same heads as battlesuits half their size. It's not the pilot's actual head anyway.

WorldOfActionGirl: Commander Shadowsun, [[Literature/CiaphasCain Inquisitor Amberley Vail]], and every [[AmazonBrigade Sister of Battle]] ever. Most Howling Banshees, as well; though they can be male, most are not as the TagLine isn't as exclamatory as it Aspect is on the Laconic page. It'd be even more self-explanatory.named for a female mythological spirit.

** Pre-Heresy Fulgrim.
** Lucius.

** Pre-Heresy Fulgrim.
** Lucius.
Fulgrim and Lucius. Both of these men ''were'' once good and noble (relatively speaking) but the ways of Slaanesh corrupted them with Fuglrim becoming a demon Pirmarch and Lucius becoming an unavailable, bald, and heavily scared thing who comes back every time someone becomes proud of killing him by warping their body into his own and putting their screaming face onto his armor.

* WetwareCPU: Servitors, in all their various flavors.

* WetwareCPU: Servitors, in all their various flavors. It helps that they lack a lot of higher brain functions and thus can't be as easly pulled to Chaos unlike the Men of Iron who had enough free will to be corrupted by the Dark Gods.
