[ERROR] No.18633265 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

From what I understand, Imperial Guardsmen get the shaft in terms of who has it the worst in 40K. Are there any exceptions to this? Normal human beings, unaltered in anyway, who can even show up Space Marines and hold their own against daemons?

>> No.18633296

Sororitas are technically human. Stormtroopers are pretty badass. Assassins of various types are quite good at killing things. Good enough?

>> No.18633436

>>18633265
Lower hive citizens and lower hive mutants mutants probably have the worst lives in 40K. If you are speaking strictly military, then the majority of PDFs have it far worse than the IG.

Alternatively, a single ork who is alone on a planet with nothing else to fight might be the worst off as well.
