    No, it’s appears to be a Mars Pattern Baneblade Super Heavy Battle Tank and ,if to scale, these Chaos Marines would be twice as tall.

    Is there some explanation in warhammer as to why they even need ground troops?
    If you’ve got spacecraft and you’ve got imaging that can read a license plate from orbit and you’ve got weapons that are accurate from kilometers away, then actually having guys fight on the ground seems like a waste of time. Except for special ops, covert stuff. Which there doesn’t seem to be anything covert about space marines and megatanks.

    Yes, the reasoning is such; 1. The ability to advance and research technology is dead and the ability just to maintain it has become a very controlled religion, 2. There are countless billions of humans in the galaxy and they make them the most plentiful resorce as weapons, 3. Computers, or other forms of artificle intelligence, is as sin and is unlawful. 4. Draw parallels today, why have ground forces when a country could just destroy their enemiesby using bombs and missiles? If there are criminals barricaded in a apartment, why send SWAT in, when you could just blow the… Read more »

    1. Doesn’t make any sense, because they clearly already have sufficient tech. 2. Unless humans can be used as rocket fuel, moving them between other planets is still a waste of resources. 3. See 1 4. We only use ground forces today because our objectives are generally NOT to indiscriminately kill (such as your SWAT example). Concern about civilian casualties doesn’t come up much in Warhammer. 5. I’d have to say the opposite: games don’t need to make sense to be fun (eg Chess), but I like novels to have some sort of internal logic. For example, Dune has shields… Read more »

    There will always need to be “boots on the ground,” unless we reach the point where mankind decides to just eradicate each other wholesale. No amount of conventional bombing will completely destroy a well dug in and prepared enemy. And as far as I can tell about the Warhammer 40k technology thing, basically the “secrets” to the technology used by the Space Marines and the rest of the Imperium were lost during the Horus Heresy, when the people who really knew and studied such things mostly(if not all) killed. Yeah, it’s kind of a weak, flimsy explanation for everything, but… Read more »

    “unless we reach the point where mankind decides to just eradicate each other wholesale.”
    Isn’t that exactly what the factions in Warhammer are trying to do to each other?

    “No amount of conventional bombing will completely destroy a well dug in and prepared enemy.”
    If you can sit in orbit indefinitely and laser anything that moves, they have to come out of their bunkers eventually. Also, it doesn’t matter how well they are fortified if a few well placed asteroids will turn the surface of a planet into hot mag-ma.

    Reboot you ask why, so I told you the reasoning given by the game’s designer Rick Priestly. They 40k universe has lost the ability to make new technology and to attempt to is a death sentence. It’s a universe of religious supersition and blood-thirsty might on a vast scale. The saying “Life is cheap, Ammo is expensive” is why you’ll see tens of thousands of people fighting over certain old relic war machines (like a titan) to repair and reuse because it is no longer able to make them in any great numbers anymore. This is world where the loss… Read more »

    “Isn’t that exactly what the factions in Warhammer are trying to do to each other?” It depends. If the whole world is deemed as being unable to be salvaged due to the forces of Chaos having tainted it or something like that, then yeah, the people in the 40k universe will destroy a whole world. Usually Chaos forces will take over a planet, enslave the populace, and then massacre a certain amount of people in part of some elaborate ceremony to bring froth some demon of sorts. Therefore, it’s not in their best interest to just kill everything from orbit.… Read more »

    “The thing that bothers me most about Warhammer40k is that nothing ever gets resolved. Ever.”

    I’ve played historical war-games and 40k, and the reason I like 40k over historcial games is because you don’t know how it ends. When I planned a WW2 miniture battle games I know even if the Germans the win the battle, they will lose war, but in 40k the end is not revealed, so still has the element of the unknown.
