You have an unlimited amount of guard vs. the worst the 40k universe has to offer. The planet is a extremely large world consisting of nothing but open, endless plains. The Imperial Guard are limited to the basic guardsman equipped with big flashlight (lasgun) and plastic armor.

How about a single Bloodthirster? Necron Lord? Lord of Change? I'm guessing around One hundred billion guard for just one Bloodthirster. Thirteen million for a Necron Lord and Fifteen billion for a Lord of Change.

I kid. But seriously, I think it would take millions upon millions of IG. They would have help from a thousand psykers, but this particualr IG armies 1000 psykers got picked to be sacrificed to the emperor. So it sucks to be them.

No psykers. Only unlimited amounts of the basic guardsman (Basic kits only. No special weapons) It would probably take millions. Like a bunch of ants trying to attack a Elephant.

Well.... Tbh you wouldn't need an particularly high number of IG to take down a single bloodthirster. Yeah, they are scary shit... But what makes them such a huge threat is that they arn't alone but are usually accompanied by a horde of evil little buggers with big ass swords.

Let's raise the stakes. 100 Bloodthirsters and 100 Great Unclean Ones vs. Unlimited amount of Guard. I'm guessing it would take somewhere in the millions.

I figured that one sextillion (1,000 Trillion) las rounds would eventually defeat at least half of the daemons or cause some serious damage. Even if they are basically flashlights.

[sacrasm] Well, those flashlights will add up. That 'thirster will be so busy rolling dice for his armor saves he wont have time to attack. And every turn he can kill what, 5 guardsmen. Jeebus I hope he has a lot of dice. [/sarcasm]

No matter what you are or who you are, a thousand(I say a thousand cuz if there were a million most of them would be very far away and they are not that good at shooting) lasguns shooting and hitting you is going to case a lot of damage. Imagine a constant barrage of lasers over and over. Your dead in minutes.

Unlimited. Use your imagination. Like a wave of One trillion guardsmen per minute in one giant blob of human waveness.
