Wow the Warhammer universe is quite interesting... I've considered trying to jump in, but have no idea where to begin lol.
Usually what is known about the Warhammer fractions, and especially the Imperium, is an exaggeration or hyperbole. Often this is due to the fact that fans of the Imperium, due to their love for the fraction built on selective passages from many books, stop to noticing flaws. To begin with, the Imperium does not have its own ships the size of a planet. Even the phalanx may be a legacy of DAOT.
Warhammer just seems to be super OP in every sense
Those who speak of the planetary designs of the Imperium often forget about the Rings of Abundance Covenant, which were located on the remote worlds of the Covenant. The Space Marines need special armor for landing from low orbit, while the Spartans do it at ease. The Covenant has hundreds of ships larger than any of the Imperial Glorians.
The forerunners built full-fledged dyson spheres around the stars, while mgalekgolo could become their weapon against the flood.
Yes, these little worms multiply faster than a person is capable of and do not require anything that a person might need. They are more than capable of killing a Spartan. Their fuel guns are quick-firing analogs of the melt, and armor is a complete replacement for the terminator armor. They can replace any of their organs. They are a cross between gun platforms and infantry. They are mobile and can attack in close combat, can bend to the ground and lean out due to shelter. And they do all this very quickly.
Covenant vehicles are more than a match for the Imperial Titans, and their ships are capable of using their reactor - a miniature supernova as a weapon destroy planets. Covenant shields are actually capable of withstanding terratonic firepower with ease. I love warhammer more than halo, but I understand that this is not a utopia for humanity and can give a healthy assessment.
But there are a few points you made that I want to comment on. Spartans can't jump from low orbit with ease. On the contrary, many of them died while inserting from low orbit over Reach. Most of the rest were badly injured. Granted, a damaged pelican didn't help the matter, but they jumped from the Pelican I believe when they were below low orbit. Otherwise, the Chief using a drop pod when inserting on Delta Halo would have been a waste of a drop pod if he could just walk off the In Amber Clad and achieve the same result.
Drop pod is used for directional landing. In damaged armor in halo 3, the Chief landed on Earth. Noble 6 was pitched to Reach where gravity is higher than on Earth as a measure of his salvation.
Quote:Also, the nuclear reactors aboard UNSC and Covenant ships aren't capable of destroying entire planets. One was used to destabilize Installation 04, but that was hardly an entire planet. The only weapon capable of demolishing a planet would be the Nova Bombs of the UNSC. I can't speak to the Forerunners, though I would agree they probably have plenty of weapons capable of destroying planets.
First, the Covenant does not use nuclear reactors on its ships. Their
reactors are miniature supernovae. The energy from the birth of a supernova is more than enough to turn Earth or another planet in our solar system into steam. This is pinch fusion reactor: https://www.halopedia.org/Pinch_fusion_reactor
Covenants are able to use it not only as an energy source for their weapons, but also as a projectile.
Secondly, are you sure?
Quote:Her focus was on a large outcropping of rocks about two hundred meters away. But the longer she ran, the farther away they seemed. Please don’t glass the moon, please don’t glass the moon. A thread of panic started to unwind and she felt thrust back to a time when glassed planets were a horrifying reality. She had no idea who was attacking the Roman Blue or what capabilities they had, but she was praying like hell that the plasma beam was directed at a single target and not the entire moon. Part of her wanted to break silence and call in Ace for immediate retrieval, but that was the anxious Rion talking, the scared Rion. The sane part of her knew the plasma beam would’ve been a hell of a lot more intense and encompassing if the intention was to glass Eiro. It wouldn’t make sense to use a concentrated beam on the Roman Blue and then proceed with complete lunar destruction
Smoke and Shadows (pg. 32)
If a small Covenant ship (CCS) at full power from an energy projector is capable of destroying a moon with gravity sufficient for people to walk on it, imagine what CSO will be capable of, which is two thousand times larger.
most powerful sci-fi universe is definitely Warhammer 40K. that's a universe where even a ship's lightest weaponry that can destroy planets
Yes? It is interesting because of which, if a projectile dispersed to a fraction of the speed of light is lighter than the ship of the Imperium of the NOVA cannon, which is installed exclusively on large ships due to its kinetic energy, it will not be capable of such. Its power will still be in the petatonic or exatonic range. Hell, the planet killer could only cause an explosion in the core of Saven, but did not destroy the planet, like a celestial body.
While small covenant walkers are capable of this:
Quote:“You two lug-heads know what a plasma drill can do, right?” Niko asked, leaning past Rion. “If left long enough, the thing could eventually cut clean through to a planet’s core. Destroy worlds. Any of this ringing a bell?” (Gay, Kelly. HALO: Renegades)
