I'm beginning to think a lot of folks on this board have forgotten what having fun with a few buddies over the weekend is like. You guys can't be this serious about a game, can you? I realize there are thournament players and expert modelers out there, but come on man - it's a game - no need to get all anal retentive about it (got a job for that). After 15 years of fun in the basement, the dollar cost of this hobby becomes negligible. Heck, I'm sure we've spent way more dough on pizza and sodas than on models!
Put a model on the table just cuz it looks sweet? Sign me up!
Giant squads of 40 chosen in terminator armour? Yes please!
HQs that make up 50% of the points cost? You betcha!
Replay a turn because your buddy made a mistake? More time to scarf pizza!
So sound off, who STILL plays the game just for the fun of it?
I play because I love the game, my army lists try to include as much cool stuff as a useable list will allow.
It may not be sensible to have 18 marines and 5 scouts in a 1500 point list but I love including my land raider and terminators (not too mention as much heavy support as I can fit).
If its cool and fluffy I will try to fit it in.
Of course it's all in fun. You can play any legal game you want, and even illegal games with opponent's permission. I may have a gripe with some fluff fouls from time to time, but again it's ultimately still just a game. No big whoop!

Indiana: It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage.
For the last time, there are
NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES!!!!!
I still play to have fun and I always will. If it wasn't fun then I woudn't be playing! Of course I still like to win once in awhile but I can try to win and have fun at the same time!
Of course I still play for fun. It's the reason I don;t enter competitions, because I can't be arsed to fight a bunch of beardy crap.
I have nothing but fun with my Ogres (They never win, but it's funny )
My space marines seem to allergic to glory and victory. But its still great fun playing.

Fun is the foremost goal in every battle. It is always a victory for me if both players had fun!
Of course one plays to have fun, but I also think winning is fun.
The thing is, one can play the game just for a laugh- like you said "bring out the big guys" and that's fun or one can play it as a tactical, more chess like, game and that's also fun but in a different way.
It's not that one way is better then the other, none is more "genuine". I like them both.
The most important thing is that both players are playing the game in the same way at the same time, not one with 40 chosen in terminator armour and the other using his beard....che....effective and competative army.
The advices given here, at least on the Chaos board, is more of the "efficient" kind as the other kind is much more about personal taste. I came here to get advice on how to make my army more efficient and I think many still do.
But anyhow, I play to have fun.
