Yesterday, I went to the Hobby Shop for games night. I was ready to play a 1500 point per player, 4 man game with partners (3000 points per side). Another guy came in at the last moment and I let him have my place instead. (I'm older and these were younger kids and I'm all about the kids fun first) I stayed out of any game until a young lad came in late. There was no room left, so they put up a smaller table in the back for us to play. The lad and I played 1000 points a side in the quiet of the back room, while everyone else was in the main room bickering about rules, gloating over wins, howling over loses. We quietly played two kill point games in three hours and it was the best time I've ever had playing 40k. We had Necrons vs Daemonhunters and although I won both games with Necrons (for a change) it had nothing to do with having fun. Away from everyone else, we quietly and with good speed had a great time. So what is your favourite game? A busy 4 player game, 1000, 1500, 2000 point games, one on one or maybe the big Apocalypse games? Something else? I think the number one rule is having fun.
I actually prefer the smaller 1 on 1 skirmishes, at 1000-1500 points. The game's a bit more balanced at that level, and fluffy theme armies seem more...for lack of a better word, fluffy. At 1750-2500 points, any army can have a lot of everything, and although that's fun too, it seems that the individual lists lose a bit of their character, and usually become more similar.

1750-2000 for me. I find its a happy medium between not being able to take all the things you want to at 1500, and the cheese that can be pulled off at 2000+. 1000 point and below can be good fun, but i tend to find with those, the battles already decided before it starts, simply based on the lists.

I love playing Ork players because many of them have a real sense of humor about the game and don't take it too seriously. One of the most fun games I've ever had was against an Ork player, it was a very intense, hard fought battle, with some interesting moments. Early on, I dropped a stormtrooper melta squad behind his mechs, and took out his Deff Dread and two Killa Kans before they could do any real damage. In response, he dropped in his stormboyz and trashed my Leman Russ. They then got wiped out by my Hellhound. Meanwhile, on the other side of the board, his green tide is steadily advancing on my infantry gun line. My guardsmen are valiantly blazing away, taking out ork after ork. Things seem to be looking up for my valiant little soldiers, until his Big Mek's shokk gun malfunctions and teleports him right into the middle of my troops. They lose combat and break and run, giving his burna boys enough time to reach my line and take out a squad. My opponent has his nobz abandon an objective to chase after my Lord Commissar for no other reason than they wanted his hat. To both our surprises, he manages to hold them off for two turns. The end result was a tie, I controlled the objective on the left side of the board, he controlled the one on the right, and we contested the one in the middle. It was a wild game where anything could happen, and it was a blast.
1750-1850, depending on my army.
