All polls in this forum are automatically put up on the dakka home page, and as a result, we have to restrict who can post polls here for safety's sake. If you have a poll you would like to see here, then post it in this thread and if a moderator approves it then it will get added. Good polls have concise questions and short answers. Polls can be multiple choice or one answer only. Polls can either be timeless ('what age did you start wargaming') or time limited ('how much did you spend on wargaming in the last 3 months').

Note, your poll will be added MUCH sooner if you also list all available options for the poll response as it saves me having to think about it much.

Doesnt have to be wargaming related, but we wont post any polls that will be too divisive (politics, religion, possibly music) as we have a broad range of interests represented on dakka and I'd sooner keep flame wars out of the polls section.

If you were facing a so-called "true-scale" space marine army, would you prefer the infantry (standard space marines) were based on:

a. 25mm "standard bases"
b. 30mm
c. 40mm "terminator bases"

Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thoughts on painted/unpainted armies at local tournaments with no requirements...

-Regardless of requirements, you should have your army fully painted and based.
-The army needs to be at least primed and or base coated.
-Armies should be fully built, even if its bare plastic... paint doesnt matter.
-I dont care, painted or unpainted... I go to tournies to win!

How's your grasp of the 40k rules?

-Near flawless. I've practically got the rulebook and most codexes memorized.
-Great. I don't need to ever check a book most games.
-Good. I know most stuff, but I'll forget rules every once in a while.
-Decent. I get confused on little things a decent amount.
-Poor. I need to check the book a lot.
-Terrible. I can barely get through a phase without looking it up in the book.
-I don't play 40k.

As a follow on from the 'How much do you earn' poll, how about a 'How old are you, what age group do you fall into' poll. Reading through some of the comments on the 'how much do you earn' poll, i'm thinking i'm a dinosaur compared to some people on here!

"You smell dat? Do you smell dat? Napalm, son. Nofing else in da galaxy smells like dat. I love da smell of napalm in da morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for twelve hours.

Did a search and didn't find this one. I find it hard to believe that I am the first to ask this but:

Which current or dropped 40K Army listed here is your Favorite?

Please, do not vote because the army has the strongest current codex, but rather base your vote upon look of models, back story, price and the Armies playstyle.


Please post why you voted the way you did.

Black Templars

Blood Angels

Chaos Demons

Chaos Space Marines

Codex: Daemon Hunters/GK

Codex: Witch Hunters/SoB

Craftworld Eldar

Dark Angels

Dark Eldar





Space Marines

Space Wolves



The Lost and the Damned


Edit-I did this poll in 40K discussions. Interesting though limited results. Would be interesting to see the results from a broader cross section.
