** At one point Krin apparently shot up a zoo, if the FourthWallMailSlot strip was any indication.
** Then there's [[http://servantsoftheimperium.com/comic.php?comicid=167 this]], when Krin calls out Severus for TemptingFate:
---> '''Krin:''' "Oh, I'm sure there won't be orks all over the thing we're after." Or "Hey, we'll be safe in here." What about "This BBQ sauce is bound to conceal our scent from those sabrehounds"? That did NOT end well.\\
'''Lyle:''' Actually, I think that last one was you, Krin.\\
'''Krin:''' Oh yeah! Fun times!

* GuestStarPartyMember: Aki was going to be one of these originally according to the author, but he decided he liked her so she was promoted to main cast.



* HeelFaceDoorSlam: Played for laughs in [[http://www.servantsoftheimperium.com/comic.php?comicid=34 strip 34]]. A pair of dark eldar decide they don't like being evil torture-loving psychopaths and that they want to leave. Next panel the heroes machine-gun them.

* LampshadeHanging: In issue 110, Inquisitor Hunt and Lord Judge plan to make a large military operation with Imperial guardsmen and PDF forces to purge [[spoiler:the Genestealer threat]]. They consider mapping out their forces with [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} mina]][[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything tures]] and then realize it would be an utter waste of time painting them and setting it all up.
