I think it is galaxy in flames, but i will check to be sure.
All warfare is based on deception.
Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate.
If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.
Invincibility lies in the defense; the possibility of victory in the attack.
Thus, what is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy's strategy.
Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.
Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized.
You have to believe in yourself.
-Sun Tzu

It was In False Gods, when they attack the Technocracy. The World Eaters charge in through a breach in the wall.... and a seismic charge detonates, killing a load of them, and, apparently, Angron. When the others capture the Technocracy leaders, Angron bursts out, and... It's Angron and a bunch of people who just tried to kill him. Do. The. Math.

Too bad you can't find it. False Gods is my favorite of the first three.
I'll promise myself I'll finish these War Hounds, some day...

Like the "rules lawyer", the "power gamer" also labours under the mistaken belief that 40k is competetive game. Unlike a rules lawyer (who is merely a tragic cripple), power gamers are malicious characters who enjoy humiliating others by playing to the best of their ability. Science has proven that this is because they have small [censored].

Remember, your Primarch was actually probably Alpharius. Or Omegon. Or Alpharius AND Omegon. And the Emperor's not really the Emperor. He's Alpharius, wearing a wig. Made of Omegon.
