I find many things in 40k to be ridiculously OP; Space Marines, most of the forces of Chaos, etc.. Reminds me of why I never got into Dragon Ball, it's just too over the top.

The Imperial Guard are pretty dang cool, though. Armed with nothing but a fancy flashlight, armor that may as well be paper, and the ever-useful bayonet, they still charge headlong at enemies that can practically kill them just by looking at 'em funny.

Did the Korps have any major deployment besides Vraks? I am a bit behind on canon...

Nitpick: the forward edge of their helmet's brim should be swept backwards more.

The Siege of Vraks (813-830.M41) - The Siege of Vraks was an Imperial military campaign fought over the course of 17 standard years to retake the Imperial Armoury World of Vraks Prime from the heretical Forces of Chaos led by the Apostate Cardinal-Astra Xaphan. Vraks was besieged by the forces of the Imperium of Man in 813.M41 by the 88th Siege Army, which was composed exclusively of Death Korps of Krieg regiments. The Krieg Guardsmen acquitted themselves well, fighting in many major engagements throughout the entirety of the campaign. At the conclusion of what became a 17-year-long campaign of attrition that required the deployment of 34 regiments of the Imperial Guard to re-take the planet for the Emperor of Mankind in 830.M41, 14 million Imperial Guardsmen had been slain and Vraks Prime's entire original population of 8 million souls had been consumed in the violence or exterminated after they fell to the corruption of Chaos. The world was then declared Perdita by the Inquisition.

Many WH40K factions are inspired by historical armies in one sense or another.
Space Marines have a lot from Roman Legions, as weird as it sounds.
Soldiers of Krieg are inspired by german army of WWI with the gas masks and trench warfare equipment.
Even "Krieg" is the german term for "war".
