Added DiffLines:

* SociopathicSoldier: Any Ork, Dark Eldar or follower of Chaos. Quite a lot of Space Marines and Imperial Guard troops too, and they're supposed to be the "good guys". The king of this trope though has to be the Thunder Warriors, the PsychoPrototype Space Marines, much more powerful than Astartes but so brutal and unhinged that the Emperor had them all destroyed when they finished conquering Terra for him and thus had outlived their usefulness.

** The Necrons, soon after defeating the Old Ones, turned against their C'tan gods and defeated them which left them too weak to consolidate their vast territorial gains, and went into hibernation. 60 million years later, the Necron dynasties are reawakening and making ground in their recovery, though the dynasties are now disunited and prone to in-fighting.
* The Eldar, despite having an empire that only spanned 9 sectors, could go anywhere and do anything they wanted thanks to their advanced technology. Unfortunately, they went down a path of excess and pleasures which created Slaanesh who brought about the destruction of the Eldar Empire. All that's left of them now are a few craftworlds and exodite colonies.

** And for each of these groups, 'vestigial' should not be taken to mean 'weak'. They may be in bad shape, but they are all still forces to be reckoned with.

* SillyReasonForWar: While Orks don't ''need'' a reason to go to war beyond "I'm bored and the other guy is there", they have come up with a few. Such as building a monument to honor their gods and then starting a war over which statue represents which god.

Added DiffLines:

* UnblockableAttack: The 8th Edition of the rules introduced the concept of mortal wounds. Originating from ''Warhammer 40,000's'' {{Fantasy}} sister game ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'', mortal wounds automatically inflict damage against the target without the usual roll to wound and cannot be stopped by any form of amour or invulnerable save.

** And of course, played straight and inverted for Chaos Space Marines in the thirteenth Black Crusade. After thirteen tries, Chaos wins the campaign and takes Cadia. Then Games Workshop retcons it so they only have a foothold on the planet.

Then Games Workshop retcons it so they only have a foothold on the planet. And then advancing the story to them literally destroying the entire planet.

** A player must have models on the table to continue playing. A recent errata has stated that Fliers and Fortifications alone do not count. Since Fliers can only provide air support and there needs to be a ground force of some kind present, while Fortifications are useless without someone to man them.

** When PETA decided to take a shot at Warhammer's setting for it's various uses of fur (nevermind the fact that most factions prefer more...[[GenuineHumanHide humanitarian]] forms of decoration), Matt Ward of all people decided to step in and penned a short story where some eco activists tried to protect a native species from the Imperium's state policy of cleansing xeno life forms (in anticipation of colonization). Such activists managed to get the xenos onboard only to realize the reason why the Imperium deemed the xeno life harmful is because they're extremely violent carnivores. The activist's ship soon went silent as the beasts broke free of the holding cells.
