Yes, lets. But this time, lets try to be a little less biased eh?Let's analyze the legions.
Exactly, perfection in everything they do. Every stroke, perfect, every movement, perfect, every tactic, perfect.Emperors children is more concerned with perfection than getting shit done.
Doesn't really mater as their box is absolutely massive and contains almost every possible scenario. They failed to think the impossible, but quickly fixed that mistake once it was revealed to be possible and then went so far as to run simulations against other Loyalists (something no one else did).Ultramarines are incapable of thinking out of the box.
But the Imperial Fists have one of the finest military records of all the Legions (I believe they were second or third in number of conquests). Did that many planets have walls, or are they capable of winning without them? Further, taking fortifications is one of the hardest things to do in a war, the fact that these Legions were really, really good at it shouldn't be held against them.Iron warriors and imperial fists worked best against walls
Horus is explicitly referred to as a a master tactician, yet you believe he used only one tactic?the luna wolves used tip of the spear tactics.
Yeah their flaw is that they're too good at it. Bummer.blood angels were CC specialists with have a serious flaw.
Wait... complicated plans and avoiding casualties are bad?Alpha legion avoid direct combat with complicated plans
And therefore have no fixed m.o. The Night Lords will do whatever is necessary to win, they are willing to go so far beyond anything other Marines (even the Wolves) are willing to do.Night lords use terror
1) The Wolves have more control? Who lost it first in the Night of the Wolf? The Wolves are just as likely to lose control as the others. Look at Wolves at the Door, completely unnecessary butchery. The Wolves believe they are more controlled, but they don't show it.Then finally the wolves, they do the berserker charge of the world eaters and BA but they seem to have more control over it, they also use pack tactics as evident in the night of the wolves.
2) Another word for 'pack tactics' is 'unit tactics', every modern military uses this, the Marines are no exception (aside from occasionally the World Eaters). I'll point to the comparison made between Marines and Custodes in First Heretic, in which I believe the 'wimps' of the Word Bearers are compared to wolves.
What does it take to kill an Astartes?everyone else either didn't specialize in what it would take to kill an astartes.
So the Wolves, whose tactics seem to be 'frontal charge' and 'sneaky charge', are more flexible than the Ultramarines, whose vast tactical doctrine is the basis for the entire Imperium's military in 40k? Or the explicit tactical brilliance of several Primarchs (of which Russ is not one)?Or wasn't flexible enough to get the job one.
