So theres alot of planets called Terra, all orbiting different stars but still called Sol and with a solar system identical to our own?

Everyone has a purpose, just so happens mine is more of an example to others of what NOT to do.

I know it's time to go to bed when the last post in every thread has been written by me.

What I meant by saying Earth was that Terra and Earth were seperate. As if The Imperiums world (Terra) is a completly different one than our own (Earth)

No, a world called earth which is similar in every way to the one we have now. Now quit nitpicking and get one with the mans question.

Actually, the Imperium was based on the Roman Empire before christianity took hold; so they were actually pretty lenient on religion. As long as you do not hold your god higher than the emperor then your religion should be fine. That's why christians and jews weren't treated so well in the early days of the empire.

So I believe it would be the other way round. Jews, muslims and Christians are going to be the ones wiped out or driven underground.

I think in some respects our technology surpasses the Imperium. I think modern main battle tanks would compare well to a Leman Russ, the latest fighter craft, while being slower if you go by the FW stats for thunderbolts and lightnings, don't seem far off the capabilities those craft. I think if it came to a straight fight we'd do pretty well, but then you factor in the orbital support available, never mind SMs, it really flips it on it's head.

However, I think once the various governments realised just how badly out gunned in that regard we are, and that we wouldn't be wiped out if we just fell into line, they would capitulate. There would of course be pockets of resistance, but they wouldn't last long.

If we resisted, we would be fucked... Our governments would never understand what we could gain from joining the Imperium of Man... They would resist... And lead us to our doom...

But that can be prevented...

There is a reason why I should be the leader of this planet...

I guess we know when Doelago has accomplished his latest task of being leader of planet Earth when he addresses us as a Grey Knight!


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

Happened in the very first HH book. They even had an Emperor. The only thing that makes it weird is that we have a TT game of them. But the warp works in mysterious ways...

To the OP's question. We'd resist. They'd shoot the White House (or something) from space and we'd fold like a house of folding cards. Then life would continue pretty much the same.

Not all bad then.

Moment they were detected in orbit the pres would be in a bunker. Don't know about your queen, not like it really matters much, but the US president would be safe.... for a short time anyway. US and Russia would probably just nuke the bastards. Well, they would try at the very least.
