Guys, speaking of the orks, can't we all just get along and murder those green skinned abominations? Or find a way to control them?

Remember the Tyranids? those guys are still there, the sentient races of the milky way need to group together to fix that little problem.

Eldar, let the Imperial guard use your webway so they don't lose 50% of their person ell in transit

Tau, get over yourselves and stop trying to be the dominant race, lend us some of those plasma guns

Imperium, stop trying to kill and subjugate everyone. You are the most powerful faction and you are still losing to opponents you don't need to fight. Lend the other factions some of that manpower.

I feel like a dick for hijacking this thread, but it is sort of about Eldar. I'm in a campaign as DE. Tau nigga issues me a challenge. I know to get Tau into close combat, but how the FUCK do I combat both a Riptide and these little fucks? (pic related) I mean there's only so much I can do against anti air. My list so far looks like this:

HQ
Haemy-Flesh Gauntlet, Stinger Pistol, Liquifier Gun, Animus Vitae
Succubus-Haywire Grenades, Splinter Pistol, Power Lance

Elites
Grotesques-4x w/ 1 Liquifier Gun and a Raider w/ Flicker

Troops
Kabbies-10x with a splinter cannon in a Raider with Flicker and Splinter Racks
Wracks-10x with 2x liquifier guns and an acothyst with a Hexrifle in a Raider with Flicker
Wyches-5x with haywire grenades and Hekatrix with an Agoniser in a Venom with two splinter cannons and chain snares

Heavy Support
Ravager with Flicker

Kotov’s fragile consciousness plunged deeper and deeper, the gossamer-thin lifeline held by Magos Blaylock a tremulous thread in a firestorm of golden light. He saw systems flicker past his floodstream that were as alien to him as anything the most secretive xenotech might dream of in his fevered nightmares, and technological echoes of machines that surely predated the Imperium itself. Power generation that could harness the galactic background radiation to propel ships beyond lightspeed, weapon-tech that could crack open planets and event horizon machines that had the power to drag entire star systems into their light- and time-swallowing embrace.

All this and more dwelled here, ancient data, forgotten lore and locked vaults where the secrets of the ancients had been hidden. In this one, fleeting glance, Kotov realised he had been a fool to drag this proud starship into the howling emptiness of space in search of hidden secrets.

The Speranza was the greatest secret of all, and in its heart it held the truth of all things, the key to unlocking all that the Mechanicus had ever dreamed. Yet that knowledge was sealed behind impenetrable barriers, bound in the heart of the mighty vessel for good reason. The knowledge of the Men of Gold and their ancient ancestors was encoded in its very bones, enmeshed within every diamond helix of its structure.

>> No.27001351

>>27001341
Looping targeting arrays for weapons he had never imagined the Speranza possessing and others that he did not understand flashed up before the astrogation and engineering hubs. Azuramagelli and Saiixek backed away from their stations, confused and not a little frightened by this unknown power rising up around them. Stark against the red of the main display, the image of an alien starship resolved itself. It was smooth and graceful, its hull like a tapered gemstone and topped with a vast sail that billowed in the gravitational tempests. Its image flickered and danced as though attempting to conceal itself like a teasing courtesan, but whatever matrices were at work in the heart of the Speranza saw through its glamours with ease.

...

The flanks of the Speranza shuddered as a weapon system built into its superstructure ground upwards on heavy duty rails. A vast gun tube rose from the angled planes of the Ark Mechanicus like the great menhir of some tribal place of worship being lifted into place. Power readouts, the likes of which had rarely been seen in the Imperium since before the wars of Unity, bloomed within the weapon and a pair of circling tori described twisting arcs around the tapered end of the unveiled barrel. Elements of the technology that had gone into their construction would have been familiar to some of the more esoteric branches of black hole research and relativistic temporal arcana, but their assembled complexity would have baffled even the Fabricator General on Mars.

Pulsing streams of purple-hued anti-matter and graviton pumps combined in unknowable ways in the heart of a reactor that drew its power from the dark matter that lurked in the spaces between the stars. It was a gun designed to crack open the stately leviathans of ancient void war, a starship killer that delivered the ultimate coup de grace. Without any command authority from the bridge of the Speranza, the weapon unleashed a silent pulse that covered the distance to the Starblade at the speed of light. But even that wasn’t fast enough to catch a ship as nimble as one built by the bonesingers of Biel-Tan and guided by the prescient sight of a farseer. The pulse of dark energy coalesced a hundred kilometres off the vessel’s stern and a miniature black hole exploded into life, dragging in everything within its reach with howling force.

Stellar matter, light and gravity were crushed as they were drawn in and destroyed, and even the Starblade’s speed and manoeuvrability weren’t enough to save it completely as the secondary effect of the weapon’s deadly energies brushed over its solar sail. Chrono-weaponry shifted its target a nanosecond into the past, by which time the subatomic reactions within every molecule had shifted microscopically and forced identical neutrons into the same quantum space. Such a state of being was untenable on a fundamental level, and the resultant release of energy was catastrophic for the vast majority of objects hit by such a weapon.

Though on the periphery of the streaming waves of chronometric energy, the Starblade’s solar mast detonated as though its internal structure had been threaded with explosive charges. The sail tore free of the ship, ghost images of its previous existence flickering as the psycho-conductive wraithbone screamed in its death throes. Blue flame geysered from the topside of the eldar vessel and the craft lurched away from the force of the blast. Its previously distorted and fragmentary outline became solid, and the circling captains of the Kotov Fleet wasted no time in loosing salvo after salvo of torpedoes at the newly revealed warship.

Okay, on the small, small chance you aren't trolling and really are this stupid, you do realize EVERYTHING is canon. By that I mean it's entirely up to interpretation.

This franchise has been around for a long time and there are tonnes of contradictions. You are welcome to pretend that the Imperium are the most advanced and powerful faction despite that contradicting what their tech essentially is and the fact they are hopelessly outnumbered, but pretending that one sentence in an apoc book that might as well describe any other faction over rides every other piece of fluff is just faggotry pure and simple.

Okay you're trolling but I feel like pointing out that the Imperium was so terrified of the Tyranids that they annihilated all life on several planets just to deny them resources.

ok, that's enough bitching. let's put the facts together.
-is the guard the largest military in the galaxy?
No, the Tyranids are/is. Or the orks, if you count them as one force. humanity actually outnumbers both, but not all humans are in the guard.

-Is the imperium the most advanced faction?
Fuck no. the necrons are the most advanced, period, the the dark eldar and then the eldar (the dark eldar are most likely slightly more advanced, because they had te opportunity to develop since the fall, and had the necessity since they don't use psychic powers anymore). However, while the imperium lacks the eldar or necron supertech, and don't understand most of their own high tech stuff, the tech that they do have tends to be reliable and effective. Few can argue that the Leman Russ or the baneblade are bad tanks, for example, and bolters or meltas are pretty good weapons. the relative weakness of lasguns and flak armour comes from the fact that the imperium has to deliver millions of those to their troops every day, so something more complicated would be impossible.

-is the imperium the most powerful faction? very likely*. They are more unified then the orks, and more technologically advanced then either the orks or the tyranids. their numerical advantage makes the tau or eldar not even competitors. Dark eldar are swift, annoying, and eerily effective at what they do, but aren't a military powerhouse (because they don't need to be). Chaos can be a problem, but relies on defectors and stolen weapons, and is way to eager to fight amongst themselves to threaten the dominance of the imperium. Plus, theeir strongest forces are led by abbadon, which is a loss by default. The tyranids are the only serious threat for the imperium, even as it's sole focus, but the forces that currently are in the galaxy can be beaten, the same as the necrons.

*this is based on the current number of tyranids in the galaxy, and the fact that the necrons decided to screw the C'tan and balkanise.
