Actually, we are not comparing 40k fluff and DoW, we are discussing whether or not it is possible for Star Wars to beat 40k, and in regards to exterminatus, the beautiful thing about Droid ships is that they are also mass produced droids, so as long as funding doesn't become a problem, they could potentially outlast the Space Marines and win, without that though, they would be annihilated like all other Star Wars armies
Thing is, droids would be blown to bits by a single bolter shot, wouldnt they? And droids arent the most accurate thing ever, so its not like they could pull a Gears of War and headshot a whole fireteam of Space Marines. I think it comes down to how much ammunition the chapter has. :D
Well, Droids are pretty meh all around, I'd have to say around the same level as a Guardsmen, minus emotion, senseof preservation, intuition and the such, at least, a basic battle droid, more advanced ones like Super Battle Droids and Droideka would have an easier time, especially Droidekas, with the shield and all, so in the end, I would say it comes to funding, since enough money can make an unending army, which eventually will win through persistance

An imperial guard army tends to be around the size of a droid army. I.e. Bigger than a clone one. And we've already come to the conclusion that the imps are better than the clones I believe. Thus since the clones are better than droids, guards are better than droids as well. And I sincerely doubt that the confederation could outprodice a single mechanicus world.
Basically pit the whole droid armies against one medium mechanicus world. THe legions of Skiitari alone would be enough.
Actually, I think Clones are better trained then IG, what with then being clones of Jango Fett and all
Well, I am no Star Wars nerd, but to my knowledge clones were created and trained to be "super soldiers" with both intense training and the DNA of an accomplished bounty hunter, so I would assume that a single clone is more highly trained then that of an average Guardsmen, just lacking as high quality equipment, especially since their armor appears to be as thin as paper to any kind of projectile, at least Guardsmen's flak vests might possibly block something, though it hardly matters since in combat bullets are hardly alone, man, I should really train myslef to keep these things short and sweet instead of going on like this:uhoh:
Clones are watered down from Jango, they are just basic Soldiers which the bounty hunters etc have a better DNA traiting. Guardsmen are hard, their Lasguns rip off limbs and blow through walls in one shot but because they use them against alien races and alien armour, their guns appear meh just because of Alien armour being better in general. However on human, a lasgun is deadly but they also use autoguns as well, which Clone armour was not built for. Imperial weapons and armour are alot tougher than Star Wars.
Someone should just make a DoW/EaW mod. Yeah, and give the the star wars side twice as much of everything to make things fair. Also, Jango Fett VS Space Marine= Dead Jango. Space Marines are godly ffs, you can't beat them with two cheap flashlight like blasters.
Edit: Droidekas and their shields would be no match for a standard bolter so they'd get owned anyways.
Would they? I have an understanding of their shields capacities in Star Wars Battlefront but I can't for the life of me remeber the capacities in the fluff, if my memory serves, there are few if any moments in which Droidekas are totally pWned, as it seems they usually have it the other way around, but honestly, it doesn't really matter, 40k is much more advanced then Star Wars period, anything badass in Star Wars can be pWned by it's counterpart in 40k, which makes sense, since Star Wars takes place a long time ago(in a galaxy far far away=p)
