Yeah, trust me, as someone who practices martial arts and spars with other people on a regular basis, I know. Even an extra fraction of a second to react can make a big difference. My point was that there are very few examples of this advantage in the fluff (at least that I've encountered). Given his showing, it makes me think that Ahriman might have given a few of the Heresy-era close combat specialists a lot more trouble than they'd probably expect, if it came down to a duel. But then Ahriman would probably just rip their astral forms out of their bodies and feed it to daemons, like he did to a certain extremely dickish Space Wolf. Who needs badass CC skills when you have MIND BULLETS!!!

I admit I totally forgot about this one but, given how bleh I found that whole story overall, it's hardly surprising.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.
