ok, i have a question, i keep getting into arguments with my friends about who would win if space marines met star wars (a chapter ot two vs the clone army) ive read all the fluff and i personally think that sm would win hands down as they are really fast, strong, can surviv terrible wounds that would kill a normal man, and better tactics and weaponry, my friends say that jedis could beat them easily but aren jedi the equivalent of maby a librarian at most? ill leave the outcome to you guys as i want to hear what people have to say about who would win.

(p.s. sorry about my spelling:D)

You can't compare them. They are from two different sci fi universes. It's like comparing apples to oranges. They are both fruit, but cannot draw much more than that. Perhaps it would be best if you both dropped the argument for something more competent.

I think that NeCoHo has a valid point, but i think that geniticly(sp) modified Space Marines, with power armour and heavy weapons would make quick work of ordinary men in weird suit things. Is a clone troopers armor anything special?

Since Storm Trooper armour is designed to amplify a single blaster shot until it's fatal, I'm going to say they don't really have a prayer against the SM.

But NeSoHo kinda said it best. There is too much to jump back and forth with, between the fluffs.

You can't make a definitive statement really, but i would say, Clone DC-15 rifles are Comparable Power-wise to a lasgun, Their armour is more or less Carapace, and they're Marginally more skilled than the average IG. a SM would be worth about 10 Clones or more.

Jedi, would power wise be beaten by a Psyker, as generally Psyker powers are very Destructive, rather than a Simple Push-Pull. Psykers would also outnumber them hugely. the only thing a Jedi would win on is Basic athletics. no thanks, i'll take 3 foot thick armour and a gun that fires missile bullets.

You could Get more in-depth by making it SW in general versus 40K in general Basically, most everything in the SW universe would be absolutely shredded by its Equivalent in 40K. Specific things from the SW universe, Some more Obscure things like the Planet Crusher, Star Forge, Galaxy gun, would probably reap a bloody toll on the 40K guys, but it wouldn't be enough to outweigh the fact everything in the 40K universe outnumbers everything in the SW universe.

Another thing my friends keep arguing is the space battles, they say star wars would win because of the death star, i say no cause the bigger sm ships all hae he ability to destroy planets by barrages too so there guns would reack havoc on the death star, and basically every other race can do the same thing.

i understand that u cant compare both very well (my school is split between sw and warhammer fanatics and a fight broke out bout this once ^^)

thx for helping out and the advice guys.

yeah your right. Death star could kill a planet or two, but it wouldn't last very long. Those space marines flag ship would own it.

The death star is still smaller than the dyson sphere and many other things in warhammer. Actually, what the death star can accomplish, a number of ships in both imperial as well as chaos hands can do equally as well, not to mention the fact that most ship carry viral bombs which can ignite a planet's atmosphere.

As far as I'm concerned, the only thing that star wars is better in in space than warhammer is ship FTL and communication. As to range, sublight speed, and what not, warhammer is better.

Of course, as was said a number of times, the universes are vastly different and following vastly different ideas of style. While Starwars tends to act as a space fairy tale, with technology that very much resembles our own (starfighters the size and abilities of contemporary counterparts) warhammer tends to exist in a constant state of overkill. Basically following the christianity tried to attempt in the barock and gothic. Of course breaking into a fight over this is kinda stupid to be honest.

Also once more to the context of the death star. It wasn't such a terrible weapon due to it's planet destroy capabilities, but due to the extent of terror it could create. Warhammer is vastly different from star wars in this regard. While the population of starwars exists in a similar state as ours, (imagine the outcry where some nation to more or less completely destroy another, pacifist and quite large important nation in a mere instant), warhammer closely follows the there is only war line. The people are used to the terrible terrors that can happen. And those that are not, are just kept in ignorance. The powerful know of things like exterminatus and they can live with them, because they see their necessity.

The death star as a whole, would have virtually no marginal effect on the morale of warhammer, it would be merely another horror among countless others.

Well, a Space Marine would fucking rape alot of Clone Troopers before going down. Space Marines are made to take on armies.
