im gonna put this in both Fantasy and 40k army sections so if u want give ur opnion to both then ill tall both of them and see who wins
also give a reason why and nothing like bcause its more fun or because it is
(i kinda already figured 40k will win because more pple play that one)
(this just means for a fantasy players to contribute)
I personally like Wahammer 40,000 more, but this is kind of a stupid question because they are both really great games.
i dont think so thats y im askin it, but ill probly play it either wayOriginally posted by The Ham@Oct 16 2004, 20:33

In that case Warhammer 40,000.
Well I'd say fantasy as it's more tactical and there's no relying on the one unit or big beast to win, also the positioning of units and war machines is much more important. If you stick all your units in front of a cannon then the cannon is useless and placing a weak unit on the flank is a bad idea.
So the tactical ability and skill needed in FB is more IMO, you can't always expect to charge and always win or shooting to win you the game. In fact it's said that FB is quite often won in the movement phase or in deployment, cock up in one of these and it can spell the end (unless you're good enough to pull it back of course).
Don't get me wrong 40k is a good game, but is too fast and lacks the tactical skill needed for FB. But you do still need tactics and such.
I agree, fantasy requires more tactics and the rules are more complex. I find 40k games more fun in general because they are a bit faster and easier, but nothing beats a 3000 point fantasy battle. Seeing the huge armies in perfect ranks line up for battle is great.
This poll is just stupid. Librarium Online was at first a site only for 40k i believe, fantasy was added later. There are alot more 40k players on this site.
I already stated that i thought that 40k will win straight out but suprisingly there r some Fantasy votes in the 40k sectionOriginally posted by WiCkEdRock@Oct 17 2004, 05:24

well firstly nightcrawler
i think the fact u placed it in a fantasy armie section may sway the odds...
but i vote 4 fantasy
only because i have played 40k for 4 years and have only recently started fantasyUmmm ulrik i think fantasy is definitely more reliant on large monstersWell I'd say fantasy as it's more tactical and there's no relying on the one unit or big beast to win
or at least larg monsters do betta on fantasy than on 40k
in 40k standard troops are armed with lasscannons, powerfists etc that can easily take them down. I think in 40k numbers win where as in fantasy numbers arent as good. As large units can easily flee and be cut down.
but yes back to the poll i find fanstasy more fun because i think it takes more thought into positioning. As manouevering in fantasy is very important where as in 40k they can all "skirmish" if we are using fantasy terms. And movenment is alot faster in 40k.
People will always step on your head on the way up
Just try to minimize the bruising by keeping your head down when they do.
No, if you charge a large monster into a large unit the monster will most likely kill more but due to ranks and outnumbering it will be the monster that flees. In fantasy you rely much more on combat resolution, through ranks, outnumbering, banners, rear charges etc.
