Anything 40k is automatically ten times more outrageous than any modern equivalent!

They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.

That's how you KNOW it's outrageously more effective than normal modern counterparts.

Getting mugged? No big deal.
The muggers gun has a skull bolted onto it? You're already doomed.

(Correct me if I'm wrong)

Modern flamethrowers eject a stream of ignited petroleum gel (i.e. napalm)

40K flamers eject a stream of ignited promethium gel (i.e. 40K "napalm")

Does the latter burn hotter than the former? To be effective against enemy Space Marines, I'm guessing that has to be the case?

Flamers can literally cremate people into ASH. Promethium makes IRL napalm jelly look like a fluffy bunny rabbit of incendiaries. I'd post pictures, but that'd get me banned, but to save you a google search napalm just makes people look like somebody forgot their chicken in the oven too long.

So, after all that's been posted, I guess the answer is a resounding yes.
