Eh. Tough call, but I dunno, I just love the fact that 40 million years into the future you still have big huge monsters wandering the battlefields. But then again I just love the Fantasy theme and all that slashing'n'hacking set in the olden ages. So, it's a hard choice that (for me) must be decided later.
PS-I'm still a n00b and can't find the poll options:wacko: Sorry
you might want to search the forums, there have been a few discussions (and more than one poll) on this topic over the last few months...
as for me personally, I like the more fluid, modernistic squad level dynamics of 40k over the fairly rigid regiment level workings of WFB, but it's just a personal thing. I really love the fantasy models, and would like to explore it more, but am just too in love with the 40k back story.
Baby, when I'm the voice of reason, we've got problems!~artificerSomeone should stop

before he turns 40k into checkers~anon
oh, sorry. The thing about Fantasy is that it has more strategym but 40k is good also:yes: I'm confusled.
This thread is really just going to de-volve into FB players saying FB is better, & 40k players saying 40k is better.
As it stands, anyone would have to admit that 40k is now more popular than WFB, but personally I still prefer WFB.
To me, 40k tends to boil down to who can take the most heavy weapons & win the slug out.
It is still a fun game but I think it has less depth than FB. Atleast FB required a bit of tactics.. & there is less of an advantage/disadvantage between different armies (theres no space marine equivalents in FB :lol
40k games are really decided before they even begin. An experienced player could read both lists, & tell you who is going to win..before the game even starts. (provided both have close to average luck).
That still applies to FB, but to a lesser degree. It depends a lot more upon the skill of the player & HOW he uses the army, not just whats IN the army.
I also think FB models are a little nicer. Probably better suited for Veteran WH players & painters.
In other words, if you are a 13 year old newbie to Warhammer, play easy-peasy space marines.. and 5-10 years down the track when you're a good tactician & painter, break into the FB scene
In the end it all boils down to personal prefernces. Some people dig the sci-fi future thing. Others dig the 'medieval' swords & magic thing.
You will never get or be able to get, a clear answer as to which is the best. There really is no answer.

just had to point out it isnt 40 MILLION years in the future, but 40 THOUSAND years (40K, note the K). prob just a mistype, but, eh, i'm particular.
I personally prefer Fantasy over 40k.
-Can't just load up on heavy weapons and win
