i'm going to have to go with Orcs obviously. Probably followed by the good old Imperuim of Man. Because they really have no idea what they are doing. At all. Ever.

Orks, followed by the Imperium. Think about it. The Adeptus Arbites use shotguns. not suupa-bean-bag-grenade-launchas. Shotguns. And the Imperium still runs on glorified oil. Rough Riders ride horses, the Adeptus Mechanicus have absolutely no idea what they're doing, and the Emperor himself is rotting into ooze on life support while the Custodians play poker on an upturned barrel nearby.

Uh, Kroot Mercs and feral Orks anyone?

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Eh. Kroot and Feral Orks at least understand their (very) limited tech. Kroot in particular, as they abhor technology. I think that physically, yes, they are less advanced, but for reasons of seriously not knowing what they're doing it's the Imperium.

Imperium of man, Karnak skull takers (hope i have the name right) comes to mind, dont see too many ppl field IG with 2 close combat weapons on all soldiers.

Orks can supe up their stuff so they have some knowledge of technology and use it not shun it. As stated earlier about kroot, they understand their tech level, and dont do prayers and rights hoping that the machines will work (Exorcist comes to mind from Sisters of Battle/Witchhunters)

As I recall Orks have a vague understanding of exactly how Tellyportaz work. Can't say that for the "mighty" Imperium Of Man.

Depends, the Mechanicus don't have a freaking clue (anyone else you know attempts to calm the "spirit" of a bomb before detonating it?), but your average IG Leman Russ crew knows how to make field repairs for their rugged tanks without the mumbo jumbo.

Which can often mean duct tape, a lot of swearing, and a well placed kick to the engine.

Repairs on a Leman? So repairing an essentially gas run vehicle? Congrats, Imperium. your technological know how rivals that of my hick neighbor.

Kidding, but not much. 1. Orks (Feral or no, while some awesome tech most is 20th century) 2. Kroot Mercs (Barely Count) 3. Imperium (button pushers extroardinaire)

And in a moment which saved the galaxy from complete annihilation, the Ork put down the Pulse Rifle, knowng nothing of it's strength and rapidfire capabilities, but only that it didn't make a loud enough noise and that it tasted like the bad parts of a squig.

Ork Dakka-ta-Death Army- 2-0-0 Because nothing is more insulting then being out shot by BS 2 Orks.
