Okay well it seems the majority of my board are on their knees, making gratuitous back and forth motions towards the Space Marines and their lesser allies. Which is first of all uncalled for. And secondly, despite most of your fanboyish ignorance, the Space Marines are evidently not absolute strongest faction in the Wh40k universe, nor were they in DOW, and nor will they be in DOW 2 .
Therefore i have made a factual and fluff approved comparison to the strongest race: Necrons.
1 Necron Warrior fights at the equivalent strength of 2.5 Space Marines 1 Flayed One has the ability to make a group of 5 Space Marines say their prayers. 1 Wraith fights at the equivalent strength of 1.5 Chaplains 1 Pariah can cut down 2 Assault Terminators 1 Necron Lord can command a Necron force at the efficiency of 3 Force Commanders.
Also, HAPPY NEW YEARS!
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want..Where you can always find me.. and We'll have Halloween on Christmas!
I was playing TT vs my friend, and i had a 10 man squad of CC vets locked up with some warriors, and I had termies moving into that assault. Next turn my buddy's necron lord with a warscythe (i think? the one that owns everything) and man it was brutal, he wiped my stuff out so fast.

Yeah, Warscythe's are annoying and the most potent close-combat weapon. Good thing I lashed the Necron Lord away during my game and then charged the out of rez orb range warriors with Berzerkers! Yeah!
