Default Starcraft Races vs. 40K Races

Name says it all, who would win?
Specifically:
Terran vs. Imperium, etc.
Protoss vs. Eldar/Dark Eldar, Tau, Necrons, etc
Zerg vs. Tyranid, Orks, etc.

Yep, that's really useful

Imperium would win against terrans hands down IMO. Imperium has a much larger force if you count IG, SoB, Astartes, and the Inquisition. The Imperium also has a lot more technology at its fingertips I.E. Land Raiders, Predators, Titans, Battleships, Battle Barges etc. Space Marines are also a lot more hardy then Terran marines. Astartes have much better armour, are better trained, and have wider choice of weaponry then the Terrans. Remember, Terran marines lifespan is about 10 seconds on the battle field, while some Astartes live for thousands of years. So all in all my money is on the Imperium.

So consider Terran vs. just a specific part, say IG. IG marine is comparable to the basic Terran marine.

Terrans have Thors and Seige Tanks, Seige Tank in Seige Mode would win against anything, I dare even say a LR.

I disagree, siege tanks take multiple shots to take out the heavy zergs (ultralisks?) so they would have problems taking out a LR before they unloaded thier troops.

I should change my name to Number 1. Not because I am conceited but because thats what I always roll at inopportune moments.

Terran against IG seems more fair. Would be an all out brawl with leman russes and Seige tanks going against each other and IG and terran marines dying in droves. The way i could see IG carrying the day is if they had a Titan legio attached to them. The reavers and War Lords would sunder the Terran line. Both sides have there respective air force as well so it would be thunder bolts versus vikings and the imperial fleet versus the terran battleships. Without a Titan legio for the IG the battle could go either way.

I think IG big artillery would win the day. They wouldn't need to press the attack and make the terrans come to them.

Ever see 5 3/3 upgraded Seige Tanks in Seige Mode? Scary images.....



If the IG didn't have Titans with them I would say Terrans simply because they have more better stuff. I mean they have HH in place of Hellions, but IG doesn't have a match for the Thor or Raven, or those jetpack guys (forgot their name), plus Ghosts would wreck IG.
