Default 40K QI (Quite interesting)

Ok some of you may be familiar with the tv show QI hosted by Stephen Fry, he gives little bite sized information about subjects that are quite interesting and some times contrary to what is believed, anyway i thought we might do something similar but not as a quiz, so i want people to post little bits of genuine information about 40k (any part of it) that people might find interesting.

Please make sure the information is genuine and verifiable, for those reading and posting dont for get to give rep if you think something is interesting.


OK so something like this

"The shells that come with the Bane Blade GW plastic kit actually fit the bore of the bane blade barrel"

or

"the Eldar heavy weapon platform used to be a stand alone kit but was combined with the guardian squad, the stand alone kit was the first model GW produced fully in a computer using CAD, but the first sprue produced using the same method was the black templar vehicle upgrade sprue"

Does this apply for 40K lore/background as well?

The Dark Angels Company Veteran Squad is the same product as the Dark Angels Chapter upgrade frame which is available only as a direct order. The difference, the Veteran Squad box contains a command sprue, the same command sprue that come in the Tactical Squad box.

There is no reason to buy the Tau Hammerhead Gunship box, because the Skyray Missile defense ship comes with the rail gun in it. So you can easily just take missile rack of and put the Rail gun, or vice versa.

Although I can GW putting them into the same box like the Forgefiend/Maulerfiend or Catacomb Command Barge / Annihilation Barge

Contrary to popular belief, Kharn the Betrayer is a pretty fun guy.

The 16th Chapter Master of the Crimson Fists, Traegus, implemented a breeding program for Space Marines using failed recruitees that were not sterile. But, because the results of the breeding program were problematic, the program was scrapped by the 17th Chapter Master, Klede Sargo.

In an issue of White Dwarf from the early 90's, a paper Baneblade template was printed to allow you to make a cardboard version. You needed to cut out and attach evey track link individually and you used slotta bases as the sponson gun turrets. It was freaking awesome.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.
