    There are some acts so ruthless, some deeds so unpalatable, that only the Vlka Fenryka are capable of undertaking them. It's what we were bred for. It's the way we were designed. Without qualm or sentiment, without hesitation or whimsy. We take pride in being the only Astartes who will never, under any circumstances, refuse to strike on the Allfather's behalf, no matter what the target, no matter what the cause.

    I was wondering what the heck this thread title was about. So this is that movie about 300 guys that fought 3,000 or something in some narrow alley am I right?

    300 Spartans and 700 Thespians vs about 2,000,000 Persians I believe
    As I understand it, there were 300 spartans left, the Royal Guard of the King, about 700 other greeks, and the number of Persians is greately debated but most put it between 200,000 and 400,000 men. So it was still a mind-blowing battle in reality.

    I've read that the huge million+ number comes from counting all the support personnel that traveled with the army.

    I'm sure the number also got inflated from thousands of years of re-telling. But yeah, when you have ~1000 guys, the difference in fighting 200 000 or 1 million is purely academic.

    Well I dunno. If it's small stuff, I think it's pretty stupid that they make it seem like Frank Miller thought up the entire thing on his own. I think even if the numbers are bigger and they have some stuff like rhinos and retards, the core story is still the original legend and they shouldn't be all "FRANK MILLER WROTE THIS! HE WROTE THIS! HE WROOOOTE THIIIIIIS!!!!!"

    I'm not saying it actually happened... I'm just saying that if you don't know that Frank Miller didn't invent Greek Mythology, you probably are an idiot.

    It's not a myth. The tactics and concepts employed are taught at just about every military academy in the world.

    Who fucking cares? History is just a bunch of fucking stories, and it doesn't matter who tells them. How they're told and what actually happened are totally separate things.

    It wouldn't annoy you if you came out of the theatre and heard some people saying something like "Man! Frank Miller was a genius to write this story! 300 against two million? Awesome!" Because it always annoys me when people don't know anything pertaining to history.
