While I do admit this is the "grandaddy" of all board games, I've found it be less about the game and more about the hobby for me. The high cost of the game also makes it hard to justify under a house with two children and a wife.

Cleans up the rules some, even though the armies are still unbalanced. The fun is in the killing, not the winning. It's still the best tabletop miniatures wargame ever made.

This was the edition that started it all for me. My friends and I found this game in 5th grade and we went from there. It began with being just us playing one another, but as we grew up, we found the huge community for this game and it became a social experience on top of just being a game. However 5th edition has taken a turn for the worse. What I would do to go back to the days of 4th edition....

My son is really into this now and I like it a lot too. Really love the battles even if it's a lot of luck on the dice. However I really get into putting the armies together and figuring out different configurations to go with different point totals.

A cumbersome but comprehensive gaming system wrapped around a fantastically imaginative universe where anything is possible. You must like miniatures and miniature painting to like 40K.

I feel the rules are more elegant than alot of people give them credit for. I enjoy the game immensely for both the play and the hobby aspects. There's nothing like commanding an army that you're proud of that you put together and painted yourself against another's well painted army through beautifully sculpted terrain.

People slag this game alot, because they feel that Games Workshop are money-grubbers, but when you judge the game on its own merits, it's really quite good. In-depth back history, relatively simple game mechanics, very approachable, good artwork and miniatures, and a wide variety of races to play. It's Orks in space, man, how can you not love that?!?

The game that made me the rules lawyer I am today.
Still my favorite setting, the longest and most successful gaming saga of my life... GW literally made thousands upon thousands of bucks off me and my friends on this one and although I haven't played since 4th edition days, my armies still stand ready and waiting for the call.

Death to the false Emperor!

People might argue with my rating on this game. The rules have become so simple and the game has lost a ton of its original flavor. The reason I would give it such a high rating is mainly because I've played it so long yet am always willing to play it frequently. The universe tied into this game is quite large allowing for a lot of variation on the game, of course if you get locked into playing one army with the same roster every time, I could imagine this game getting boring very quickly.

Simple & fast combat rules, not realistic, but they keep things interesting. 4th edition not a big change from 3rd edition, primarily incorporating the new HtH rules that were out in WD earlier, but also making vehicles (finally) the mobile gun platforms they're supposed to be. What a money and time suck, though. I don't think I've played a real 1500 point game of 40k in a decade, but I still keep buying and painting miniatures (although I'm only two squads and three tanks away from completing my 1500+ point Imperial Guard army, finally!)

maybe not the game you want to play if you want to pull off marvelouse tactics and have everyone wowwed by you skill. however... in real warfare, its rare that single men moving here or there supply the war winning effort. this game is fun, and depicts the vastness of battle. has great flavor, just expensive and hard to assemble a fully painted army.

For a war game (most of which have stupidly complex rules) W40K has easy to grasp mechanics, which is high up on the rating. The universe is richly detailed and fully immersive. The only downside is the cost and time. If you are not interested in making the models and painting them, don't bother. If you are prepared to look past the extionate prices you will have found a truely fantastic game.
