Time for a little geeky poll.

Who do you think would win in a fight. The Stormtroopers from Star Wars, or the Orcs from Lord of the Rings? There are thousands from each army, and just imagine both groups facing off with each other in one epic battle.

I would stick with the Stormtroopers, the Orcs are bad and nasty, but the troopers just keep coming, and they got guns.

I'd vote for Stormtroopers.

In short, gun wins. (I dunno how that is related to a pen, but...) :lol:

If this was a bet, I go for the Stormtroopers. Both Orcs and Stromtroopers are... 'Mass produced/cloned", yeah, but the Stormtroopers got superior training, organization, skills, and weapons... and equipment...

In other words, the Stormtroopers are very likely to win. If it was a single Orc vs. Stormtrooper and both were armed the same way (with the ST still wearing it´s own armor) maybe then the orc would have a chance. But in a mass-fight the STs would kick the Orcs asses BIG TIME.

Both mass produced grunts designed to overwhelm enemies with sheer force of numbers.

While the stormtroopers of the Empire was flawed in comparison to the republics clone troopers, due to less training and diluted genes to allow for easier mass production, their weapons are far superior to the crude iron pieces of the orcs, they're organised and more disiplined.

If this all happened over a large field, where the stormtroopers had the time to form a Napoleonic wars fireline, it would have been a massacre. The orcs wouldn't be able to touch them even before their losses caused them to turn tail and flee.

If this happened in tighter conditions, such as an urban area or very thick forest, the odds would even out considerable. But still, the coordinated fire of the stormtroopers should win the day.

Also, stormtroopers get commandos. If you've played the games or seen the 3D series, you know how bad arse those guys are.

Space orcs from 40k are another matter.

Oh they are indeed, the 40K space orcs as well. But I chose to base the comparison on if there were two armies made out of only the grunts, and the command line strictly necesary to organize it all. If the imperials started to bring AT-ST's, elites and heavy support, one could bet the orcs would get a couple of trolls, mumaks and other fell creatures on their side as well.

strom troopers there undefeated able!

That actually made me laught out loud. The stormtroopers of the original Star Wars had such poor aim that when evil minions just become canon-fodder for the heroes in movies, it is called the "Stormtrooper effect".

That also goes for the Orcs too, and pretty much any enemy grunt in movies and video games.

AT-STs, AT-AT's, and Stormtrooper Commandos, vs Trolls, Oliphants, and Uruk-hai. THAT WOULD BE AWESOME TO WATCH!

That is true, but then again, the stormtroopers got their asses kicked by a bunch of Ewoks, so I would think that the Orcs would definitely have a chance.

(You know, this conversation really made me realize that we are all a bunch of nerds, but I really don't care, this fight would still be awesome.)

I'm going to step it up a little on the nerd scale. Anyone up for meeting each other, dress up as orcs and stormtroopers, and roleplay out the conflict to find the answer? :lol:

If we throw an AT-AT in the mix, the orcs have pretty much had it. I doubt even a Mumak/Oliphant could topple it, and the firepower of those lasers would vaporize it from miles away anyway. Catapults won't do any good either. They would have to set up a trap for it somehow, dig a trench for it to stumble in, or place one of the bombs they used to blow up the wall in Helms deep by one of its legs.

If a troll got close to a AT-ST however... I think that would be pretty interesting. (Imagines troll grabbing the AT-ST by its legs and swinging it like a club.)

I've got a soft spot for Uruk-hais, but I think the commandos would defeinatively have the edge there.

I was actually going to mention that, but I didn't know if anyone had heard of it.

Stormtroopers would definitely win.  They have all kinds of weapons and vehicles at their disposal.

There have been several spin-offs. But as all true Star Wars fan will tell you, only the six count. Many chose to discard the three new as well, because they were so bad.

Yeeaaaaaahhhh, Stormtroopers.  The Orcs would stand no chance, especially with AT-ATs, and all the other equipment.

Ya but if you think about it, orcs can be made from the earth in no time at all.  stormtroopers have to grow for several years before they could be used.  so while the stormtroopers were busy growing, the orcs could create a HUGE army bigger than any technology could beat.  (remember the ewoks? they had terrible technology and still swayed the battle)
