Default Ork invade terra?!?!?!?!?

I have a particular friend who just so happens to be one of the biggest ork fanboys in the world. He has stated that an Armageddon sized WAAAGH can take out holy terra itself. Please help me convince him that that cannot happen

Real men fight in tanks!

Gladly...

First off, Mars is the most fortified fleet station in the 41st Millenium, dwarfing even the titanic Port Maw.

Second, Battlefleet Sol is the most powerful fleet in the Imperium.

Third, Terra itself if guarded by the Grey Knights (toughest Chapter in existence), and the Legio Custode (an entire legion of Space Marine Force Commanders).

Fourth, if Terra came under attack, then the call to arms would be answered by countless worlds. Of these worlds, Necromunda is one within easy reach, and they are famed as some of the most brutal of all the Guard regiments.

no A Armageddon sized whaaaagh would not be able to take Tera. for 1 reason in addition to what war gamer said the orks to get to Tera would destroy every thing that was in there way (or be destroyed in the process) so its not just orks vs Battle fleet sol and all that wonderful stuff, but the orks would have to destroy the intire imperial military to get there, and the Armageddon whaaaagh is far from that big.

Yes... Orks could take over the galaxy if they all worked together. However, getting all the Orks to work together is as likely as getting the world to love Hitler; it'll never happen.

For shame.
I just tend to break out in laughter.

No, The one thing the imperium is geared towards, more than anything else, is the defense of terra. You wouldn't have anything less than the sum of the Imperium to break through to get there.

Leviathan? Sod it. Armageddon? Not as important. The Necron threat? Forget it.
Terra is in trouble, you'll get withdrawls from every warzone, everything the imperium can throw will be directed at that Waagh if it gets close. Not a hope.
