And that's what makes it so great for me. The endless possibilities, because there are no restraints in the 40k universe.
It's all told as a legend so - you can go to absolute extremes about everything.
The Imperial Palace (granted its the BIGGEST building of the Imperium of Mankind) IT ONLY COVERS ALL OF THE ASIAN CONTINENT
Or The Vaxhallian Genocides where The Purge, a band of CSM killed over 14.000.000.000 people... That's not millions, thats billions, guys - And they brush over it like it was nothing. At the same time the loss of a Space Marine chapter is almost incalculable. The irony is stunning, because it gives off the notion that a regular human life, 40.000 years in the future, is worth next to nothing and pretty much anything (from possession to alien invasions) can happen. All the unsung battles of The Imperial Guard always going first where the fighting is worst, pales in comparison to the tales of the Space Marines, even though the battles fought by the Adeptus Astartes are surgical strikes, not planetwide warfare, because you can only do so much with 1000 marines, however powerful they might be.
It's all so uncaring and massive that you just roll along with it.
