What is the best part or experience in 40k for you guys?
For me the best part of 40K are the outlandish rolls made in my favor, I dont have to win but the look on my oponents face when my Grand Master (HQ choice for DH) gets back up from bionics (old version) is priceless. The look on my face when someone did that to me twice in a row, horrible.
Hi JimiComix! For me, the visual imagery of the Sisters of Battle is the most thrilling. I love playing the game, but I love looking at the official art and some of the better fan art that really evokes the righteous holy purity of these saintly warrioresses! And the opening of the Sisters game of 'Soulstorm' where the Living Saint appears gives me shivers and thrills! Also, I don't paint well, so I really like seeing other people's paint jobs on Sisters models, so much talent on masterful sculptings
---Emperor bless and cherish you!
Well, that is actually hard for me to answer.
In a shell, the best part of 40K for me is Necrons, head and shoulders above the rest. I'm not sure what it is about them, but I'll never give them up.
I'm curious as to what exactly you mean by "Best Part" are we talking favorite win? Comparing Fluff to gaming to hobbying? Or just generally what pleases us most out of anything therein?
On the table my favorite thing is when something completely rediculous and silly happens, something you can tell stories about that people actually are surprised by. Like when one tau gun drone defeats 10 Necron Immortals and a Necron Lord in assault, sends them fleeing of their table edge and phases the necrons, winning the game (not one of my proudest moments, but hilarious nonetheless).
Between Fluff, Hobbying and Gaming, I really just could not tell you which I prefer. Hobbying has a slight disadvantage because of the number of times I've had to fix my wraiths, but otherwise modeling and painting is a calming activity that I really should take more time for. The fluff and universe is greatly immersive and outright enjoyable. As for the gaming? Well when I get to play, I'm a happy camper indeed. So really that's just a toss up.
So it all really comes down to "favorite faction" for me, which is, as I stated, Necrons. However I must say I am drawn to every faction to some extent, each has it's own appeal, as well as it's own things I'm not as keen on.
It's when all the things come together. When the model you've built and painted while giving a piece of background and personality (that no one else will ever know...sigh) fights in a game that brings the local fluff one step forth.
But since I very ralrely play I think the most honest answer is the building and converting.
For me, it's the conversions. As an Ork and Chaos Daemons player, I've taken random bits bought in lots on ebay, and a ton of greenstuff, and combined both into towering vehicles and horrifying monsters. When you create something that's cool enough for anyone to appreciate, even if they've never heard of 40k, and that looks a lot better than what they sell at stores, you always have a good time.

Yes i was just curious on what pleases other 40k players. Yes for me it doesnt get better than spending a few hours with great friends.
for me what i like the most is showing newbies how to play the game (which i just lost ) and how to have fun win or lose, and tell them about pros and cons for armies that they are interested in collecting
I like narrow victories - when it comes down to a last ditch push or holding them back for just one more turn! LOBBA players may notice this in my playstyle, as I do love the desperate gamble that shouldn't work but does just enough to keep me hoping
Basically I play for the adrenaline rush, if my hands aren't shaking the dice of their own accord one of us needs to step up their game.
Charging a unit of Orks/Nids and knowing that it'll be ok!
The Wolf time is upon us!
