If there is one thing that has taken more of my time and money I'd be hard pressed to recognize it. This IS my addiction, and I own six different armies all in varied stages of completion. This game has taken a lot of heat by guys who have played it longer than me, and hopefully the newest edition will appease some of these "fanatics". One of the best out there, and I can't wait to see how the new rules work.

Space Marines for my son - Chaos for me and lots of painted models and terrain.
Almost every week one battle on our table (but most of the time SM rules Chaos...I've to learn more about Chaos-tactics).

I rate this a ten, but only for the years of fun I´ve had painting and converting miniatures and building terrain. Of all the time I have spent with 40k, 80% has been spent with this aspect of the game... 20% actually playing.

If you've got four hours to kill I can seldom think of a better way to use it. Yeah the armies aren't balanced, yeah the guy who spends more money on models usually wins, yeah you have to paint for weeks to make it look nice. I don't care, it's a blast. You get to roll dozens of six sided dice and destroy armies with the hailstorm of hot bolter fire that results. If you don't have fun doing that you should take up another hobby.

Technically I wouldn't consider this game "perfect" but by the rating system's suggestions, it definitely rates 10. I don't even think the rules are great, but I love the ability to build any kind of army I want. It always keeps me coming back and I always want to try out my new army every time I finish building it. It's way too expensive to buy all the models and I would advocate using proxies as much as possible, but I really enjoy playing. Even though I don't think the rules are great, I think they work well to demonstrate who can build better armies. I don't think it's entirely balanced either, but I think part of the fun is using fragile units finessefully to try to kill simple Chaos and/or Marine armies.

Amazing Game, with great options for creativity. Choose and army, conquer the universe. The depth this game entails is up to you! The only problem I have with this game is that it is extremely expensive to play. A 1500 point army will cost around $400 (US) retail.

I'm playing Warhammer 40k since the early 90ies and still love it. Aside from intense gaming it offers painting and terrain modeling and I love that, too. Of course it's not a cheap hobby, but you get some real nice models for your money and if you order at discounters in the net you can reduce the cost at least by one third.

This is the only miniatures style game I've played and it's a lot of fun. The models are all great and the rules are pretty easy to follow after a bit of practice. It can be played straight up as a tactical strategy gaming or you can create your own characters and storylines for a more immersive game. If you're even considering getting into this, know that you'll be spending a small fortune building your army and just as much in time to paint and assemble them.

This is a grea game. I play Tyranids & Necrons. It is a fun way to waste some time. The only downside is the cost. It is way too much to buy an army so i recommend online retailers like DoorDice,com that always have the componets for 20%, sometimes more. Otherwise play Advanced Hero Quest. It's a lot cheaper and plays almost the same.

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?!?

Recently returned to this game with the release of 5th Edition. Easy to understand rules and just good skirmish fun.

Update: Bumping my rating up a grade just because the game is getting played quite regularly.

Update: Pretty much done with this game with the release of 6th Edition.

I've spent a lot more time assembling and painting figures for this than actually playing it... but I mostly enjoy the painting so I don't really mind. My interest and patience for this game comes and goes over the years. I can not even think about it for a year or two but then suddenly be keen on it again and buy and play it for a few months and then stop not think about it again for months. I currently seem to be entering another fit of interest.

I put for max players since I did play a game with 6 players and that was insane a two on two is ok but better one on one, Great game but I got tired of GW Marketing scam by changing the rules every bloody damn year so mostly we play with house rules if need be but are happy with one version of the rules. Minature are naturally a must to play this game which makes it more expensive and time consuming to play the game. The box comes with minatures so you can "play out of the box" but the urge to make your own army soon tugs at you in your sleep and your off buying new rule books and Models. If your going to get into this look at this as a long haul the basic game cost anywhere around 120 Bucks (canadian) but if your serrious look into investing over a thousand in the years to come. If you want to really get in the mood with this game I suggest to go dig up some old GW Novels (if you can call them that) since they give the universe a better feel (may not work with the "again" new system they made). Oh how I miss the Horus days.
