Imperium of Man vs Galactic Empire

Empire, the largest Imperium Warships are around 5km long while Super Star Destroyers are upwards of ten kilometers and have laser weaponry rather than projectiles. Also try taking on the Death Star without an invincible squad of main characters. Finally we're talking about a completely connected Galaxy of Worlds,where as (as far as I know) Warhammer 40k involves groups of scattered worlds held by factions.

it also depends on what era of the IoM we are talking about. Pre heresy is arguably when it was at it's strongest

at the bottom of this page, comment #50, gives some good information

Yeah, except World Devastators are planet-eating Von Neumann machines. Release them in a corner of the 40k galaxy (or even just have them feast on a couple of uninhabited SW worlds) and there's going to be a lot of these guys.

That said I don't know all that much about Vortex torpedos so if someone says they can be produced in sufficient number I'll accept it.

How would the Imperium react to the threat of Palpatine throwing a Force Storm at the Golden Throne?

The Emp would stop time, then stick Palps in a sector sized warp storm. Life support or not, the GEoM rapestomps Wankatine.

I thought this was hilarious

Seriously, Sith Warriors versus Astartes.

Who would win?
User avatar #59 to #54 - whycanticaps (07/06/2013) [-]
Astartes, hands down
#61 to #59 - hellfiazz (07/06/2013) [-]
Well, I'm not sure. In a hand-to-hand, then yes, Astartes would kick ass.

But then, the Sith can use the force either physically or mentally, pushing them miles back, or, depending on which chapter, get in their heads and make them kill their brothers. But on a chapter like the Grey Knights, the latter wouldn't work, but I imagine on most it would.

well the loyalist too much fag they throw in the grey knights first... it's pretty much like exterminatus only faggy

I think it would be ridiculously difficult for a Sith to mind control an Astartes, but I don't think I can say with absolute certainty that it's impossible. I do think that most chapter Librarians could probably take out a bunch of Sith, and when you get Chapters like Grey Knights or The Black Templars who really really hate pyskers, I don't think the other side stand much of a chance

Well, at least half of the Astartes were turned in the Horus Heresy, which shows they aren't incorruptible. But yes, a lot of their minds are pretty solid.

In melee combat, I think the Sith would fight a lot like the Battle-Sisters, which when there was a bit of confusion in the first Grey Knights book, actually did not do too bad against the Knights.

Ultimately though, the Imperium would beat the Empire on pretty much all grounds.

Also, the Grey Knights don't hate psykers, because you're required to be one to join them.

Oh. right. I knew that xD

Black Templars still hate pyskers though, that I know for sure

Never read about them, so you're probably right.

Abhor the Witch, Destroy the Witch - The Black Templars' hatred of the mutant and the Warp drives them into a rage in battle. Should their enemies' ranks include a psyker, they will rush to vanquish him with renewed effort. Their hatred enhances their will, making them highly resistant to psychic abilities.


I love it xD I just can just imagine a Sith picking up a guardsman with the force, only to have a bunch of Black Templars charging him

The Empire would be raped on a galactic scale
