Re: The Covenant (Halo) vs The Grand Imperium of Man (Warhammer 40k)
Those shields can be blown through or worn down by modern-equivalent weapons (slug-throwers and automatics) and are essentially wholly ignored by armor-piercing rounds (Sniper Rifles). The Imperium of Man doesn't use modern slugs. They use high-concentration lasers and bolters (miniature, fully automatic rocket launchers). Those aren't shields as far as the IoM is concerned. They're fashion statements.
