i recently had an argument with a kid (oh i regret this) who is a starwars fanatic. he tried to convince me that, assuming all races united with their neighbors, starwars would defeat 40k in the end. i strongly disagreed.
i came to think that it depended on the environment the war was fought in. in the starwars environment, starwars would win, being capable of light speed travel. in the 40k galaxy, 40k would win, having warp travel capabilities. if both methods of transportation worked for everyone who was capable of using them, i say that 40k would still win because they are alot more brutal (orks, anyone?) and sinister (starwars has nothing as sinister as the Inquisition). Jedi, starwars stormtroopers and ewoks could not stand a chance against the Imperial Guard, the Adeptus Astartes, the Ordo Malleus, the Ordo Hereticus, the Ordo Xenos, the Eldar, the Orks, Chaos, the Tau, the Kroot, the Necrons, and the Tyranids all united. not a chance.
what are your thoughts? if you feel the taint of nerdinghood upon you just by reading this, then you don't have to reply. just sit there, in denial. play with your little dolls. we will have you soon enough <devilish laugh>

There's nothing quite as fun as seeing a Chaos Lord overdose on combat drugs two inches away from an assault...

The Empire and the Imperium would be a good match. The Imperium would smash the new republic into pieces, pathetic whelps they are. The orks would cane most starwars races but lack oprganisation. With the Necrons and Chaos, 8 gods and all their demonic and metalic minios, you can shove your Jedi where the sun don't shine.
Hello. It's not real.
the republic has nothing on the imperium ! light sabres are good and all but id love to see luke skywalker take a twin linked lascannon shot to the face ! i dont think the force will be able to save his disintegrated face .
AE-86 Twin cam corolla . a beaut !

It would be amusing to see Yoda carted off in the the Black Ships.
Or being mistaken for a Gretchin by the Orks.
I think it would be a very close battle, 40k probably has the numbers advantage, but a jedi would easily be a match for a space marine, lightsabres would easily cut through power armour. But then if the jedi comes against the massive firepower of thew imperial guard, then surely the force wont be enough to protect him against those lasguns?
i think that if the war was fought in space star wars would win (all types of travel available to everyone that is) because most star wars battles are in space, the might of the empires fleet (death star included) with the innovation of the rebels, star wars could easily slice the 40k fleet to pieces (except maybe necrons and eldar).
But if fought on land, the 40k armies would slice the star wars armies to pieces, storm troopers are nearly as bad as the imperial guard, and the jedi are far less in number than the space marines, and the sith are only two people, but then those two people did manage to overthrow a republic so ya never really know do you?
I think the only way to do it is to have half the population of the world dress up as space marines, the other half dress up as jedi, and see which can bludgeon the other to death faster with toy lightsabres, or toy boltguns.
Also, we're not nerds..... we're special......

Neither the Empire nor the republic has an inkling of how battle hardened or vicious the forces of the Imperium are. I can just imagine the horror on Princess Leia's (I dont know how to spell it) face as she watched her bodyguard devoured by Flesh Tearers after they had been pulped by Bolters. Jedi powers would be useless against the fanatical forces of the Inquisition who would be convinced they were all witches.
Who needs a Death Star when you have Exterminatus?
