Added DiffLines:

* TakeThatScrappy: In ''The Last Ditch'' the Tyranids deploy a number of Pyrovores, a notoriously badly designed unit which is highly likely to blow itself up and destroy a good chunk of it's own army. Cain exploits this fact by killing them when they're near the Hive Tyrant, and they end up winning the deciding battle of the war for the Imperium.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Squick}}: The Mechanicus genestealer-breeding experiments in ''The Greater Good'' (where convicts are implied to have been forcibly impregnated by infected test subjects) are squicky enough to visibly disturb a visiting ''Tau''.

** The Orks are a more... interesting case. While they are more often than not the "Original Antagonists" that Cain is sent in to fight only to later stumble upon the real threat (Necrons or Tyranids), they ''are'' considered the comic relief army in 40K, and the 597th are considered experts at fighting Orks, so it gets played with a little.

They get their DayInTheLimelight in ''Death or Glory''.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot / WhatCouldHaveBeen: Fairly early in "The Greater Good", Tau ambassador El'hassai suggests an exchange of observers between the allied Imperial and Tau forces and suggests Cain to be the human representative in the Tau fleet. Instead of agreeing and the book being about Cain fighting alongside the Tau, he nominates ambassador Donali to go instead and sticks with the Imperial force for the rest of the book. As a result, the scene on the cover of Cai back-to-back with a Fire Warrior facing down a swarm of Tyranids [[CoversAlwaysLie never happens]] and the Tau go on to play almost no part in the rest of the story.
