You know, Terrans have much more well-rounded technology, a much better understanding of the sciences, and isn't obsessed superfluous nonsense.
If they play their cards they could well win against against a single Space Marine chapter.

Each one's probably like that Zerg Leviathan.

So, yeah, probably. But then you could just fuck it up in the end with your superior numbers anyway.

>> No.11505247

Starcraft marines are built on the fact that:
A) Most are being disposed of, as criminals, political prisoners, etc.
Like if Stalin just sent his enemies on suicide missions.
Hell, the SC1 manual said that battlefield medics increase the marine life expectancy on the battlefield by 30% giving them a grand total of 20 seconds!

B) SC strategy is a) Send in marines b) Nuke the piss out of it c) Send in battlecruisers and mechs d) Nuke it again e) Send in more marines. f) Send in highly trained ghost teams g) Give up and go somewhere else.
Warhammer strategy is a) Ariel bombardment. b) Send in everything. c) Repeat.

I don't think either would wipe each other out as civilizations, just heavy battles here and there.
Terrans are built to just pack up and go somewhere else if it doesn't work out, something the Imperium rarely does, but the SC armies don't have anything that can touch Imperium homeworlds really.

But if we bring in the zerg, dark voice (a rival to the elder gods?), and protoss too, we might have an even match simply due to the massive war that breaks out.

>> No.11505301

Hmm.. I actually agree.

One Chapter of Spacemarines will only be 1,000 marines, no access to any reinforcements or short-term restoring of their numbers and one or two battle-barges. Marines don't operate as a full fighting army, they work as a elite strike force, so if they get ganked they could be whittled down to nothing.

Assuming the marines don't get a chance to mobilise and cut off the command of Terrans in the first 12 seconds, the Terrans have a chance to overwelm the marines.

Maries zergling rush and use cheese tactics.

One thing SC marines have Warhammer 40k marines beat in is mobility. Possibly numbers since we never get a real pop total of SC.

Plus, terrans are starting to use AI and unlock protoss tech, so if SC marines can survive long enough they'll adopt the technology and tactics of the 40k universe since they don't have any particular scruples against it.

Hell, SC marines would try to utilize Tyranids as weapons, trade with Orks, and steal as much shit as they can from the Tau.

Space Marines can only be infected by magic... aka the Warp.

You can't even extract Space Marines without trouble.

The Tyranids tried making a new species from Space Marine genes, hoping to create some humanoid killing beast capable of infiltrating human areas, and instead they got some stronger bone genes, because the design of Space Marines is such that you cannot extract how they're created.

Organs are partially genetic modified and part surgically enhanced, and sometimes even cybernetic enhanced. Without intricate technological skill, you can't reproduce the process and are stuck with failures.

SM v Terrans really all depends on who was writing. Enough Gary Stu marine fanwank makes anything possible for fluff marines.

Here's how I see it gaming-wise. Hormagaunts are roughly equivalent to Zerglings. A single Space Marine is worth 2.5 Hormagaunts and a single Terran Marine is worth 2 Zerglings. There are 1,000 Space Marines and at least 100x that in Terran Marines. The few ships/materiel the SM have are individually superior despite not working logically, but the Terrans again have them outnumbered over 100 times.

No, it doesn't. It, and it's IA, not any Codex, says 30cm "conventional steel". Which happens to be a completely subjective term.

People forget that Void Shields represent the ultimate "Fuck You" when it comes to hypothetical "Any other Species" vs. IoM conflict.

A void shield of the sort mounted on ships is powerful enough to essentially negate ANY amount of energy weapons directed at it. It's the (ostensible) reason that 40K ships use broadsides and massive projectile weaponry in the first place

Hahahah. No. I'm addicted to strategy gaming. I've played more RTSes and TBSes than you.
My criticism on StarCraft comes from the retarded game mechanics in StarCraft and the lack of new features. It's simply WarCraft with a new skin and Battle.net.

To me? The only redeeming feature in SC was the story. Even through it was pretty bland compared to some RTS games.

While its true that getting air into their blood circulation would cause damage, their blood "hardening" also stops that shit unless you inject a vacuum pump or something into them and start spraying.
Space Marines are already capable of falling from orbit, landing, getting up, and then kill. The only reason they use drop pods is because its more practical(no armor denting, no delay after landing, no worrying about impact and falling another 10 meter below ground).
So basically we got lava, explosions that would send them flying regardless, and maybe some secret weapon of whatever government. We are fucked.

Well of course the SPESS MURHEENS would have to fight by our physics if they invade present day earth. If the GRIM DARK PHYSICS comes with them we have no hope, because they have the ability to manipulate the laws of physics to their liking.

Any hypothetical SPESS MURHEEN invation of present day earth should use our laws of physics... which means that the SPESS MURHEENS will all be dieing on their way from their ships to the frontlines... whether that be because of strokes, AA, their bodies and organs being pasted by their own drop pods, etc. They cannot survive in our universe... and present day earth is not about to invade some galactic mary sue empire that exists in their own universe that runs on some crazy physics.

>> No.11507121

On the hypothetical SM invasion: If it were a single chapter, we would certainly win. The Marines would cause catastrophic damage wherever they landed, one a mere one thousand superhumans simply isn’t enough bodies to overpower us. As soon as we realized that handheld arms have almost no effect on power armour, we’d stop using them, and utilize airstrikes and artillery bombardments to take down the Marines one small detachment at a time. We’d only be super fucked if the chapter was a non Astartes one that ignores the whole ‘one thousand’ rule, like the Black Templars.

Really, an invasion by an Eldar Warhost would be far more devastating.

Name me one major game changing difference? Come on? Try it.

Like how Tiberian Sun featured destroyable ground, or TA had forest fires and 3D projectiles. Or Red Alert began with urban warfare. Or Generals pioneered sub-factions. Or Warwinds, the first game with THREE non-identical enemies. Or Age of Empires that came up with the concept of Ages. Dune 2000, who polished the "neutral" enemy concepts from earlier C&C games for further use in Tiberian Sun and the other Tiberian games. The fusion between FPS and RTS in Battlezone. The Earth 21XX games with resupply mechanics. Warzone 2100 with customisable weapons...

I haven't even started on TBS yet.

2200 wasn't the fucking golden age. What are you talking about? That, and you are saying that we could, in 200 years, mechanize and automatize our entire species, but not build a suit of power armor, or design a bolt (which is the hard bit for bolters)?
And my entire point was that either we obey their physics, in which cause own own tech has the potential to be radically different, plus psykers, or is a daemon world, or they obey ours, in which case those literal barrel chests make being a space marine suck, but we still likely lose since they have space ships and plenty of traditional weapons.
Oh, nice implication, by the way. Are Bassis better then Tzar cannons? Of fucking course. Are Tzar cannons made in the Dark age any better then Tzar cannons made in the 1800s? No, because they are the same fucking thing. Some made in the future doesn't make it somehow better then something made right now, by virtue of the fact it was made in the future.

Exactly, once they enter our universe, our physics is going to fucking rape them.

Exactly, they use parachutes to break the fall. SPESS MURHEENS use plot armour to withstand the deceleration from terminal velocity to zero velocity in an instant. If they are so HURRR tough and can survive that, how the hell can they be killed with bullets or any other impacts?

Unless they have the power to bend the laws of physics and can ignore this impact, then a drop pod is a death sentence for all aboard. And if they do have the power to bend the laws of physics, why the hell have they not weaponized this ability?
