how do you play in battles do you shoot enimies from relative safety or do you prefer to rend victims limb from limb with your bear hands?

I shoot from afar. Taking into account that i mostly play against Tyranids, you might understand why (that carnifex is NASTY! str 10 no armor save? WHA!?!?!)

I like to disembowel my foes with my mighty chainswords, because its just so much fun like that, esp. against dark eldar and IG. :wacko: By the time the dust settles, theres massive corpses piled around my troopers' feet and my friends are cursing my 1337 dice throws.

I'm an Iron Warrior so I shoot stuff. But I also have some units (like termies) advancing, so usually I make a mess of some other stuff in close combat in turn 4 and beyond.

For me it depends on the opposing player.
Last week I played against a space marine army of 2000 points.
He was quite a new player to the game, so another guy, a friend of theirs tells me to go nice on them... ok I think...
Ok he gets the first round and he charges with everything he's got... taking the fact that the opposing player was actually two player playing together they had all sort of troops.

Ofcourse I had to shoot as much as could from afar, but when he got close enough I rather charge him and get to grind some marines to bits...
Rather that then to pull back and hope I can shoot him to death...
But other than that I usually just shoot it out...

I find shooting much more challenging, my Iron Warriros are quite capable of beating the crap out of vanilla marines, but shooting fits the fluff. Close combat is too easy if your troops are good at it, while shooting is far less effective (you get serious return fire, plus you inflict far less casualties per turn).
