    If Space Marines are the ultimate fighting machines why doesn't the Emperor make everyone who's a soldier a Space Marine?

    Face it, if the millions upon millions of men who are in Imperial Guard Regiments were made into Space Marines the war would be over in no time and the Imperium WOULD rule the whole galaxy!

    Or is this complete b*llsh*t that i think of when i'm bored?

    Because chaos guardsmen are easier to kill than chaos Space Marines.
    If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldn’t the Emperor have given them wings?

    Cos geneseed is extremely precious, and not everyone is suited for implantation to begin with. Each candidate must undergo drastic screening, to make sure the person is physically and psychically pure and worthy of becoming a SM.

    Plus the whole resource problem they have. With all their Empire falling apart their rescources are pretty limited. Then theres the Inquisitors who wont let you do anything without their autherisation. . .

    Ah but also theres the point that instead of manufacturing Lasguns, (Which everyone thinks are crap) why not produce bolters everywhere instead, at least if guardsmen had them they&#39;d have a more powerful weapon to deal onto their enemy.

    Well do you want a good fun universe of things being fair, or do you want a universe of people who kill everything in their path with no struggle what-so-ever. . .
    Besides, Lasguns are easier to manufacture and they have more use to Guardsmen, they find it hard to Reload Bolters and keep them in good condition, Marines dont have that problem so thats why they have them, and as I said before, RESCOURCES&#33;

    There are 1021 known Space Marine chapters, each comprised of over a thousand fighting troops. Now to the Imperium that is a modest number to supply and maintain, considering that most Space Marine chapters are self-sufficient.

    Now imagine supplying over a million worlds to billions of fighting solders. That is quite an unimaginable number to supply with invaluable space marine armor and weaponry, and for the same reasons BorninDarkness just mentioned.

    plus recruiting for space marines has to be done when the human is around 12...after that age you cant become a space marine
    Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes

    and about 98% of the humans are not suited for being a space marine, even on feral worlds.

    Bolters aren&#39;t exactly quick to produce to produce either. Nor is power armour, because I know you&#39;re going to say that next.
