    I was on IRC with some guys from TAUniverse a while back and an interesting subject came up. CORE versus Imperium. Or to be more general, Total Annihilation meets GRIMDARK 40K.

    CORE in particular would be an interesting faction.
    While TA units lack shields, their ability to mass-produce armies from scratch, superior interstellar mobility using non-warp based Galactic Gates, and their use of at least dreadnaught-sized K-Bots as infantry should make for an interesting fight with say the Nids for example.

    Resource-extracting mass-produced AI with a hatred of all organic sentients versus OM NOM NOM gives me a nerd boner.

    What does /tg/ think?

    On the battlefield they've got the scale advantage over the Imperium in general, and Titans could probably be swarmed into submission. What stops them from getting lanced from orbit, though?

    The core/arm would win, mostly because they can do direct Energy to Matter and Matter to Matter conversion and build with nanites. The nids wouldn't beat them because they depend on biomass whist the core/arm could sit on a dead rock and and turn dirt in metal, or even sunlight into metal. The Necrons would give them a good fight though.

    >>Disintegrator: This is an 'ultimate' weapon: no physical matter provides protection from it. It works by suppressing the quantum field strength of the 'gluons' that hold together atomic nuclei. The matter violently tears itself apart, leaving hydrogen, deuterium and a burst of free neutrons. This is the major advantage of Disintegrators: anything is destroyed and Heavy Armor provides virtually no protection.
    >>The weapon has a number of disadvantages: First the matter is disintegrated so no metal salvage is possible. Second, the weapon is short ranged, partly because of the inherent physical limitations of reasonably sized projectors, and partly due to atmospheric attenuation of effect. The most severe restriction is the vast amount of energy required to fire it.
    >>A useful attribute of the weapon is that it damages everything in a cone of effect so it can destroy several units that are clustered together.

    Okay, here's an idea. ARM invades a hive world. Oh hello little peoples. TRAMPLE.
    Om nom nom delicious resources.
    After some weeks or so of gratuitous overkill, someone figures out that they're respawning all the time and that the Berthas seem to stop that, or at least slow it down considerably. Nuclear missiles, of course, stop pretty much everything if you use enough.

    Inquisition ship appears.
    Inquisition ship bugs planatery government for HERESY.
    Inquisition start bombing the shit out of the local populace.
    ARM is intrigued.
    Long story short, ARM end up with a ship design due to some good aiming and reclaiming a big broken wreck. Cue massive armada of nano-replicating ships armed with antimatter cannons messing up the Necron campaign.

    The Monkeylord is stealth and should easily be able to get in laser range of an un-escorted fatboy before it's spotted visually or on an omni-radar. That's why so many players prefer the monkey over the colossus, because if you have air superiority (and cybran have the best tech 3 fighters) than its likely they won't be watching your troops with anything more than radar and won't discover your experimental until its within omni sensor range and too late.

    It's buffed in forged alliance and has a bit more dps. It's cheap, it takes forever to kill and can soak up the fire from almost any air defence. It won't get break through stacked shields but it will eat up the AA missiles from every sam site nearby and ask for more. Send in bombers while it's getting shot at, with the stealth cover on them you opponent won't have enough warning to micro his AA off the gunship and onto the bombers before they hit a commander or fusion plant.

    I think the only reason the TA setting never had any space force was due to the reasoning that

    1. Why build spaceships when quantum teleporation is more effective?

    2. There's nothing to fight over in space.

    In which case i don't think its too much a matter of they can't or don't know how to use spaceships, but that they don't really see the need to. Though I'd imagine that if they were getting lance strikes from orbit they'd probably build some kind of massive antiship weapon. Don't know how' they'd counter an exterminatus though.

    Cybran's are half machine, UEF have gone through the same sort of mind conditioning and control that Space Marines have, And Aeon, well, shit, those fuckers are serving SupCom's version of chaos already. It wouldn't be that easy to simply possess them.

    SupCom, even given that it's units are smaller than TA's, would steamroll 40k like it was nothing. They can warp on to a planet, begin production and have a full base up and running in minutes, and every time you assault them, well, you just give them more resources to work with.

The corrupted Iron Men STC and the possessed STC Titan, both of which were exposed to the warp for long periods and in the case of the Titan, actually floating around in the warp.

    It did, all there in the manual. And seriously, all the actual story was constructed by the fans piecing together what they had.

    And it still is awesome.

    Also, the UEF titan is not 40 feet high but more like 40 meters high, the factories themselves are about 100 * 100 * 100 meters. (AT tech 3).

    Also, the ARM and the CORE are able to cut a planet in half to gather the ressources. Like in Xantippe's Abyss, a leftover of a gas giant cleaved and mined and then unused for several thousand years because it was too far away from the frontlines to actualy have a high rentability.

    Also, they can assimilate technology extremely quickly, the capture of a CORE nuke lancher by the ARM was a plot point because the antinukes in use were hinted to be good enough to destroy a MIRVed nuke barrage without flinching.

    It was also hinted that the CORE created an organic species to help them out called the Serpent. (The creation is hinted, not the actual Serpents, you get to fight them on a flooded world.)

Both sides, now crippled beyong repair, the remnants of their armies continue to battle on ravaged planets. Their hatred fueled by over four thousand years of total war.

    Swap short lived bodies for immortal machine ones?

    Do it all in the name of helping everyone?

    Sounding pretty Taucron there Core.

    Not it's not. The worst that can happen in TA is the status quo. Eventually someone will win and no matter who does it'll still be "humans" in charge of the galaxy. Even if they are in machine bodies. Even if (worst case) the Core blows up the galaxy then at least humans get a clean death

    Not so in 40k.
    If the Imperium falls then humans end up as cattle for the Necrons, slaves to Orcs, playthings to Daemons, recycled into tyranids, etc
    Worse, they can't foreseeably eliminate any of these threats (unless the Emporer returned or something).
    Frankly, simple extinction sounds preferable.

    Minor nitpick:

    The implosion device itself is protected from the death and rebirth of the galaxy. The Core ending clearly shows and states that the last Core Commander survived at the center of the device, watched the galaxy reform and rebuilt Core in a virgin galaxy.

    Except the status quo is true flat-out eternal war, worse than the worst nightmare. It really is "only war", not 40k "stop to pray every other planet" faggotry. two unstoppable, devouring the galaxies No such thing as peace, ever. TA lives up to 40k's "no respite no forgiveness" tagline way better.
    >> Anonymous 05/02/08(Fri)17:26 No.1649331
    Compared to TA, 40k has hope, faith and human achievement, even if at its worst GRIMDARK soulrape is infinitely nastier than a BLoD in the face.

    TA is darker because of the pathos, because they've destroyed their own civilisation trying to destroy the other other, because every human achievement has become part of the war.

    Don't get me wrong, 40K is GRIMDARK out the ass and I love it, but intellectually TA has a deep hopelessness about it that's so much more depressing.

    That's even better. If Core arrived in the WH galaxy (and were patient) they could just do that.

    Even better it would eliminate the threat of Chaos corruption and the stargods as all the things they feed on are eliminated. The Chaos gods will perish and the C'tan will starve (though it takes quite a while)

    ...unless Core KBots had souls and desires then chaos are back. But I find that unlikely since they're emotionless machines now

    I thought the war ended in Core Contingency? And after only about 4000 years

    Meanwhile the Imperium fought for 10,000 years and continues to fight against foes that the are physically impossible to defeat (e.g. Chaos)
    >> Anonymous 05/02/08(Fri)17:56 No.1649500
    Imperium fights for 10,000 years with shitty unbelievably inefficient tech. Chainsaws are all very GRIMDARK and cool, but what they ain't is weapons of total war. Their enemies would be who number in the hundreds of thousands at most and only seem to launch fairly sporadic raids (if they were doing it that often, don't you think they might be kind of, I dunno, DEAD after ten thousand years of straight combat?) Core and Arm fight for 4,000 with insanely advanced exploiting/processing/construction tech and fuck the entire galaxy. TA has the resources of an entire world being turned into robots which then junk each other, all in a matter of days. That is much, much more intense and devastating war than anything 40k has, including Nids. tl;dr Either Arm or Core could easily fuck the Imperium or any other 40k faction in a couple of months, tops.

    And yeah, war ended with "toast the entire universe except one Core Commander", hell of a contingency plan.
    >> Anonymous 05/02/08(Fri)18:10 No.1649603
    Even though the scale of war is much smaller I found WH much darker and grimmer due to the sheer futility of the war and worse-than-death fates e.g...

    * The TA wars ended. Humans win no matter which side triumphed
    * The WH wars will NEVER END. Humans can never win

    * The worst that can ultimately happen to you in the TA galaxy is death (the best being winning and becoming immortal)
    * The best (or at least one of the better) that that can ultimately happen to you in the WH is death (the worst is being tormented by Chaos for eternity)
    >> Anonymous 05/02/08(Fri)18:13 No.1649637
    Oh yeah and the shitty, inefficient tech which hasn't advanced in 10,000 years also adds a sense of stagnation, decline and going nowhere to WH

    Can't we agree that WH 40k is GRIMDARK set in a more fantasy like setting?

    While TA is GRIMDARK in a more realistic setting?

    That way theres more then one flavor of GRIMDARK of equal magnitudes.

    There's a replayer thing for which can play recorded TA battles using the 3d models and terrain rather than recording, and lets you fully explore that, so you can see the game in 3d in ways you can't get while actually playing with the original TA engine.

    Explained for you. So post.
