Thing is we are gaining on the Sci Fi side now. We have metals that can actually bond with bone so that it becomes an integral part of the human body. I know because I have some implanted in myself, and would not let the Doctor do it until he explained to me how it would not just rip out if I got hit again.
Stem cell research has grown by leaps and bounds, as well as cloning. This does not equate to a Space Marine, but if you took Jules Verne while he was alive and let him witness these things he would have been amazed.
I agree that it is far fetched and some of it is poorly thought out ( a fused rib cage would not work ) but I see in the future that things will change. Hell, look at just 50 years ago. If you would have told a doctor " What I want you to do is put a drop of fluid in my eyes and then set your phaser to stun and blast my eyeball with it, and when you are done I will have near perfect vision! " you would have been on your way to the mental ward ... because that shit is just crazy. (Thank GOD I actually have good vision and it is the wife that wants Lasic Surgery done, that shit scares the fuck out of me)

|Khorne's Fist||They had more than just lung modifications, they also had modifications that boosted aggression and combat skills. Presumably that would mean adrenal system and mental and reflexive acuity upgrades, beyond just stim injectors.|

The Afriel Strain were low numbers (500 from Mach), they couldn't make up a regiment.
EDIT: Doing a bit more reading there are 'a few regiments of gland war veterans can be found through out the galaxy'

I think a planetary economy and the Imperial Army would be more concerned with generating additional IG Regiments than overjuicing what is there.

"A few companies of the Lostock 23rd were modified by the techpriests to fight in this hellish war zone, incorporating many organs and drug secreting glands that enabled them to survive unprotected, as well as boosting their combat abilities and aggressiveness."
From the entry for Sgt Stone, Inquisitor rule book, page 111.

|gen.ahab||Bad ass humans with shinny, spinny chrome rims. Basically humans who went through intense augmentation processes that gave them physical abilities comparable to those of full marines. They were usually very important people who were to old to undergo the same process that marines did.|
