I play IG in 40K, and trust me, it would be an unbalanced fight. I would be
in the MARINE'S favour! IG are just total crap. I have fired 4 squads of
regular IG troopers (i.e.: all lasguns) at ONE squad of 10 Marines with
bolters, a plasma gun and a Heavy bolter (roughly "equal" in points value).
I caused NO casualties while he wiped out an entire squad! Oh yes, very
"equal" in points value! So you can see my point! The IG would have to
outnumber the marines by about 10 million to one to even stand a chance and
then they would have to use tanks, artillery and War Engines to even have a
hope of taking the marines down!!!!
