Games Workshop boardgame on the pivotal battle of the Warhammer 40000 universe. Excellent game components and production values. I've never seen this game be a complete walk-over for either side.
If it is possible, get the White Dwarf variant that deals with the Emperor's final assault on Horus' orbiting battlebarge; it's a more realistic handling of the climactic battle of the Universe.

I love this game. It's a stand-by whenever we aren't trying out a new game.

Lots of rules, but the chrome on this game is worth the investment.

I love the 40k-Background, so this is a real winner for me. The mechanics are backdated of course, but the fun is in the tight atmosphere!

Update December 13. 2009:

Now waiting impatiently for the new FFG version!!!

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

Light for a chit based wargame. The WH40K theme is what makes it shine for me. Another GW game with tons of backstory and atmosphere.

Best of the trio of games (Doom of the Eldar, Battle for Armageddon.) The opening rolls make every game different.

A lot of chrome for this little dicey jewel.
If you love the W40k universe you'll love this.
Counters will stop being cardboard and will spring to life, assaulting walls, penetrating viciously defended citadels, moving through barren wastelands to the heart of the Empire.

I love the atmosphere of it. I will play again. Soon.

A more complex version of the "Armageddon" mechanic made this game even more random in its outcome despite still being lost of fun trying to defend or kill the emperor.

Muck like Battles for Armageddon. Easy rules with equal forces that fight to the bitter end. Chaos traitors make this a much different game with each playing.

Rather more static than Battle For Armageddon - I don't remember there being a late imperial counterattack here as there was in the earlier game, with the consequence that the Imperial player often is just sitting there and taking it.

Raised it one point recently after playing the FFG design in appreciation of (1) how much cleaner a design this is and (2) how many more things happen during play.
