As much as I hate painting infantry and as many as I already have, a good deal still needing paint, I bought a box of guardsmen the other day. They were $20 and because they had a box of regimental advisers for $8. Now even given my love/hate relationship with my infantry Im toying with the idea of cleaning up the flash on the sprues and recasting some. Is it a good idea to make a mold using cleaned up sprues?

Armageddon is a hive world that pumps out chimeras while a war is going on in the damn factory, the Steel Legion probably has more vehicles than the Death Korps has men.

Also, most Steel Legion members come from hive gangs, and fight Orks on a daily basis, which is much better training than fighting against an unarmed populous. Plus, Armageddon also has the Armageddon Ork Hunters, fuckers fighting in the jungles of Armageddon Secondus who are so badass they collect the heads of Orks and paint themselves to look more like Orks. And finally, if you forget all of that remember that the Steel Legion has the toughest, most expensive character in any Imperial Guard codex, who the greatest Ork in the galaxy considers an equal, Commissar motherfucking Yarrick.

Lets not get ahead of ourselves. Ghazzy just thinks Yarrick is as close to orky as any humie can get. He couldve killed Yarrick on several occasions now and has to make sure other orks don't kill him either.

Yarrick is closer to a prized squig than an equal.

Not really, he considers him a good opponent and only captured him once while losing both of his biggest conflicts to Yarrick, and expending far more resources than Yarrick in attempting to take Hive Hades, and suffering heavy losses in the process.

This. Half a company of Space Marines can fuck up an entire invasion of a million men or xenos.

They do it by hitting weak points, and when your force is as overwhelmingly concentrated as 50 Space Marines, everything's a weak point, but just because they flew in and blew the crap out of the strongly-defended HQ doesn't mean they can survive if the enemy get organised and smash them with everything they've got. When extraction fails, you get GLORIOUS HONOURABLE LAST STANDS and those cool paintings in the codices and box covers.

Or they sneak out through the sewers, hike overland for a month (without sleep) to the front lines and rejoin the Guard so they can redeploy and do it all again.

Terrible Writing and Bad Fluff is one option.

Another is that they use the fuck out of servitors, PDF and Guard units and just bolster them - a few marines with thousands of years of combined experience assigned a kilometre of the defense line could probably improve the local forces a lot, even discounting the morale factor of "holy shit astartes." Spread half a company over the line, and you've got the other half as one hell of a QRF to repel assaults and breaches, or just sally out and fuck shit up. Sieges suck for both sides, and having a few squads of unstoppable gods of war assault your shitty trenches and destroy the supply dump where you were stockpiling munitions (and more importantly, good food) to prepare for an assault in two days time? That's going to hurt.

Again, combined arms.

OTOH, if it was just the Fists they probably would be defending a small area, and they'd be doing their best to prepare it to limit the amount of force the enemy could throw at them at once (and they surely wouldn't be stupid enough to do it unless the enemy couldn't just hit them with a full-fleet broadside from orbit... wait, bad writing, but other than that...)

The Fists were at the siege of terra, right? Made a big name for themselves there? Alongside the Titans and the massed human forces. That's how they work - split up and use their knowledge and experience to improve the defenders, or mass together to defend assaults and sally out to stop the enemy amassing enough resources and forces to assault the entire siege line at once, because on the defensive, they can't be everywhere at once.

Also, sieges are mostly waiting and resources. Astartes have good senses and can stay on watch all fucking night, or at least walk laps around the siege line slapping sleeping sentries awake.

Their bright yellow armour lets the enemy see that the line is defended! It's like that siege trick of having your men pop up in one spot then duck behind the walls and sprint to another, to make it look like you have more defenders than you have. Any speck of yellow could be a squad of Imperial Fists ready and waiting to fuck up any poor sod who takes a pot-shot.

This was one of the best things they ever did. They got a lot of cool fiction out of it, defined new bits of the settings, and now I'm sad that they don't hire one good non-GW author a year to write something.

Brandon Sanderson, right? He'll write for anyone. Get him on it. John Scalzi. Charles Stross. Jenna Moran, heh. Jo Walton. Whoever Doctorow's pimping these days (not Doctorow). Abercrombie. Zombie Iain Banks. Give them freedom to write something loosely canonical. Don't worry too much if it contradicts part of the setting, or fits the setting but veers wildly off into weird themes.

It'd cost, but even if they didn't go for GRRM they'd get press and publicity, new readers, and some good fiction out of it, and maybe revitalise the dead canon-fuckers, promoted from fanfic to barely-better-than-fanfic that make up most of BL.
