Men, I must admit to be a terrible commander. I recently got promoted to Leuitenant and in my first battle lost 800 guardsmen to claim one hill.

Just one hill.

GW doesn't understand scale very well. In the recent watchers of the throne book it takes Terra's Departmento Munitorm 5 years to raise 500,000 men for Cadia which is described as a colossal force. In truth the US Army of 2017 could throw that at a country with a few months preparation and in WW2 it was absolutely nothing.

It's a consistent problem, everything from only 1 million marines to chapters of 1,000 to the largest tank battle in the history of the galaxy only having 10,000 tanks (a size comparable to the battle of kursk)

Maybe you want to distance yourself from things like "Avengers, assemble!" but there's nothing cringey about it.
Your insistence on labeling things with popular buzzwords is on the same level, if not even worse than this.

Also it's a bit strange you think "Space Marines, Attack!" Is cringey but "BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE" is a-okay

For what it's worth, I could see the 5 years just being a result of the absolute shit state that the Imperium is in. Nobody really understands anything because of thousands of years of Chinese whispers. However, you're definitely right that 500k is an absurdly low number.

Personally, I'm surprised that nobody mentioned Land Raider armor yet

But even before, like in the 3rd edition guard codex it lists a planet conquering force as having like 12 regiments and each regiment as being like 5k troops. So basically 100k ish people to invade and conquer a planet in a few months, whereas it took the allies 2 million men to conquer half of Western Europe in a year. Scale means nothing in most space operas. The worst ever for me is the 200k clones in Star Wars being a huge unstoppable force. Like do these morons not realize that the US alone mobilized like 11 million people in WW2?

That's kind of the point. 1000 man chapters are big enough to be able to operate independently, and be able to engage moderately sized threats, but aren't capable of actually taking large swaths of territory or mounting large scale crusades, to the scale of Imperial Guard troop movements, purely because of the fact that the last time space marines were grouped in such large numbers, their warmaster fucked it up for everyone else.

With enough logistical support, a full Chapter of marines would defeat any modern army. A single squad of marines can just drop pod in a middle of an army group and slowly start blowing shit up, being pretty much impervious to fire while dropping a man with every shot, and rendering a light vehicle unusable with a short burst.

Remember, they are not just big men with big guns. Their aim and reflexes are superhuman, and you pretty much need to hit a weak spot in the armor with an rpg while he just stands there to harm one.

Modern army yes, if they don't get locked on on to and missiled to death from eight moles away repeatedly.

A 40k army worth sending something as expensive as a Chapter to fight, no. They keep conquering Forge Worlds and stuff offscreen even when each Forge World has tens of thousands of troops that could oneshot space marines fairly easily and a stupid amount of cannon fodder. There's a bit in Eye of Medusa where 25 Marines kill a couple hundred Skitarii, which is meant to be impressive but ignores the fact that Skitarii are quite literally expended in the billions and the Sicarian column that cut apart a few dozen Marines later on was pretty much the same level of small fry. Similar with hive worlds or Chaos battleships or Craftworlds or generally anything that they can't decapitation strike instantly, and you could probably do that with some Scions in Power Armour for less moneys, or ask the Admech for some teleporting Thallax teams. Marines are numerous enough to be a collossal waste most of the time but not numerous enough to use as ground troops to any reasonable extent. They would work much better as Legions even if there was more risk of Chaos problems.

The whole point of Space Marines is that they're SUPER elite commando units that you send in to decapitate the enemy's leadership/infrastructure while they're distracted by the actual army. You're underestimating just how powerful they actually are. A marine is faster, stronger, more durable, has better senses and is better equipped and trained then the vast majority of the setting, and dropping them directly onto the enemy's important locations combined with that lets them obliterate their objective with horrifying speed and efficiency. Let's apply it to modern warfare. Imagine if an army could, without fail, drop in a deployment of Captain Americas equipped with state of the art gear onto critical enemy locations. Any war would be won.

>> No.56057706

>>56057488
You can stop teleportation with Void Shields, which are standard Important Place equipment, at which point the Marines have to come in with planes, which can be shot down completely independently of how MANLY the troops inside are. They have never actually shown the power level you'd need, and have often been damaged beyond acceptable cost-benefit exchanges fighting random mundane troops. It's not modern warfare, and almost every random Guardsman squad carries a gun that can handily kill Space Marines in the form of a melta, plasma gun or rocket launcher. In all but the worst marine wank stories they are killed by things like that. Gaunts Ghosts, IW takes a Krak missile to the chest and gets gibbed. Jurgen kills a few with his meltagun. The Kataphron Destroyer in Tech-Priest kills several Obliterators, which are even worse. Titans kill dozens or hundreds of HH marines with every salvo. A DW Kill Team is beaten to death by Electropriests at significant cost while doing exactly the job you describe, and fail. It's hard to find an evil Archmagos, Chaos Lord or Daemon that hasn't at least gutted a few. Alaric's squad of Grey Knights are hounded through the Darkmech Forge World by nothing but swarms of crazed levies, heavy servitors and air support with pretty regular guns and eventually lose several members to Admech Myrmidons. Dime-a-dozen Genestealers have a fun time tearing apart Terminators, and they're worth even more.

Marines are excellent when the enemy possesses no counter, like your average Chaos uprising, but against anything where the counter-deployment of a couple dozen well-equipped normal humans RIGHT WHERE YOU WANT THEM won't cut it the Imperium does not get sufficient benefit from using Marines instead to justify the expense of training and arming them.

I'm not arguing they can't be useful, I'm arguing that they should have drastically different equipment and tactics than they do in order to be best suited for that small subset of operations they are worthwhile investments for. If you're only using them as a scalpel to snip out important weak points they have absolutely no need for Superheavy Tanks, or in fact most tanks at all other than Land Speeders and similar light and fast stuff you can air-deploy. You should have entire Chapters of flyers, Terminators, Assault Marines, Destroyer Squads from the Heresy with their War Crimes For Days gear. Anything that can be teleported or Deep Struck, although Drop Pods are very helpful there. In any occasion Marines are engaging in outright battle something should either be minor mopping-up, overkill for lack of any other job or something gone very badly wrong, because you can get much cheaper troops that are much better at it.
Also the standard equipment for a Marine should probably include a meltagun or at least an Inferno Pistol, Auspexes, probably a Narthecium as well with some training on how to use it as well as their normal gear. That stuff is inexpensive compared to the Marine you're mounting it on and it's not like they'll struggle to carry it.
