I know canonically it's not really the same guy, but I'd like to think that there's one guy who worked for Sturn, got transferred over to Kronus, was then sent to Kuarvara and was one of the survivors who after retreating out of the system found himself stationed (in ironies of ironies) on the Blood Raven recruiting worlds.

It's more the fact that his melee track is basically "Oh yeah, you can use melee weapons now. Have fun!"

Whereas Thaddeus gets stuff like Righteous Fury so he can spam the fuck out of Merciless Strike and flatten giant swathes of troops, and the FoComm lands one hit kills on mook enemies with War Cry active.

I will concede that Tarkus makes a much better 'tank' as a melee though, and that is arguably his job, given:
>highest squad HP
>tactical advance
>taunt

But he really needs three inventory slots, and in CR, he's a god with the upgrade that makes him throw three frags at once.

But in CR, the FoComm starts to show up Tarkus's tanking ability with his final Stamina upgrade (gain like, 10+ health with every kill, permanently -- it's pretty amusing having the FoComm with around 4k health at the end of a level).

And here it is, the truth that so many have hidden from you. The truth you keep yourself to blind to see.
No matter how many men you raise from despire and hopelessness, no matter how many heretics you return to rightousness, no matter how many traitors you slay, the end will be the same.
No matter how many you save, no matter how many you kill, you will die, and all your thoughts, words, and deeds will be forgotten, swept away under the unceasing tide of the ages. Faded, overshadowed, and gone.
But when the last traitor is put down,
When the last xeno is pacified,
The last heretic redeemed,
We will still remain.
And when the great Imperium of Man fades into memory,
When the last human passes away,
The Iast star burns out,
I will still remain.

And that will be the start of the true beginning.


Fingers crossed for playable CHAOS.

guard have a LOT of special forces units that don't rely on large numbers to wreck face. Stormtroopers, veterans, ogrins, and a command squad. Sentinel with an autocannon and close combat could easily function in place of a dread. Predator tanks showed up in the space marine campaign, after all. Stealth squad equivalent could be Cadian snipers or some such.
