So everyone knows Space Marines are at their best as shock troopers, favouring surgical decapitation strikes at the right person in the right place at the right time. We know they lack numbers, and their heavy vehicles are exclusively assault vehicles.
With this in mind, is it possible IN-UNIVERSE that the Imperial Guard do holding ground better than Marines? Yes their guns are shit but there are lots of them, they’ve no shortage of heavy weapons, gun emplacements, artillery and defensive vehicles. Everyone knows Guard as the guys who hold the line, is this because they hold it better than anyone else? Dornfags need not answer

Not ONE warband thought to use the weapons of the imperium against them. Not one.

He see's weaponry that uses gravity to fuck up heavily armored units like they're nothing and just does nothing about it?

Except CSM simply don't have the logistics or resources to manufacture stuff on such a scale.
And most everything you mentioned is stuff that is rare as fuck lore wise, and which marines and ad mech would fight tooth and nail to make sure you don't get. So in order for it to happen you have to

Plague Marines are wound tanks and special weapons platforms while Rubrics are dedicated Marine killers with some shitty psychic support. Noise Marines are just good in general bu their focus is shooting. Because of hte way their unique rule works they do suicide melee quite well, too.

Chosen are a special weapons platform and that is that. They can also be built for melee with all power weapons but this is generally a subpar build. In essence, they are generalists, although if you're willing to put in the points they're very shooty when armed with plasma guns or combi-bolters.

No, Marines are completely self-sufficient and have enough armor to support themselves, they are made to work on their own outside of any line of supply. They barely sleep, they barely eat, they are weapons unto themselves so ammo isnt an issue, big boy artillery isnt an issue either when you are supposed to drop in and fuck shit up on your enemy's rearguard and are also support by Thunderhawks (Which are almost flying baneblades) and orbital artillery. The only thing Marines lack is staying power and thats what the Guard brings, boots on the ground to solidify the conquest but beyond that Space Marines are an army by themselves.

Under what circumstances is that shitty doctrine for Armageddon ACTUALLY useful?

I play a tank heavy list with leman russes and Chimeras. I see no reason in taking Armageddon (which should be their specialty) over Cadia or Valhalla.

It'd help against lists that have tons of anti-infantry power. But you're already playing tanks, so...

I don't even understand that doctrine.

Since when do tanks care about heavy bolters? Would it generally lower enemy's AP by 1 i would take it inna heartbeat, but - 1? Seriously
