40K should have never made the standard game more than 1250 points, and models bigger than a Leman Russ shouldn’t be in the standard game.

RIP land raiders

Some people say they know no fear. What they mean is that they have encountered and conquered it. I, on the other hand, truly know no fear. It is as alien to me as doubt, rage, or mercy.

A lot of players seem to just ignore GW's lack of balance because they like the models enough to not care that the game is one of the worst designed games ever made.

The two missing Primarchs were women, and they were purged because they could breed more space marines. That would be a catastrophic loss of control for the Emperor, so a purging happened.

Btw I know this is nonsense but that's what my head canon is.


having them come back having completed 10,000 years of selective breeding to create more Primaris than Primaris HH sized Legions would be fun

Raptors aren't trash, consequently, the new Black Legion Raptor commander is not trash.

Wait, is this unpopular or obviously false opinions? I'm confused.

I believe that close-quarters combat should not form the core element of lists. CQC units should provide support in form of skirmishing and interference. If I wanted to play a game about large blocks of soldiers fighting with swords, I'd have played Fantasy or some other medieval-based game.

Space Marine helmets are ugly as f***. At least they're not Terminators: tactical marine bodies look okay; there's nothing good about terminators.

Guardsmen, hear me! Cadia may lie in ruin, but her proud people do not! For each brother and sister who gave their lives to Him as martyrs, we will reap a vengeance fiftyfold! Cadia may be no more, but will never be forgotten; our foes shall tremble in fear at the name, for their doom shall come from the barrels of Cadian guns, fired by Cadian hands! Forward, for vengeance and retribution, in His name and the names of our fallen comrades!

I think Astra Militarum are boring, and unimaginitive, and seem to be for people who take themselves far too seriously.
The game has a plethora of superhumans, aliens and mutants to chose from and some people still chose tanks, and dudes with rifles. May as well just play Bolt Action (a fine game) rather than mess about in a sci-fi universe.

I'd be happy to see the whole tedious faction to go the same way as their dimunitive cousins, the squats. It'd certainly help solve soup.

Ultramarines are probably one of the better conceived Chapters. Most of the hate against them is just sour grapes about how GW has overexposed the SM model range.

Metal sisters of battle models are perfect as they are, and plastics are not required.

Primaris models look like a race of three-nosed long-legged xeno scum cosplaying as space marines and getting the details wrong.

Special Characters / Named Characters need to go back to being 'with opponents permission only' in (matched) games.

The entire painting/hobby portion of Citadel is a scam, Citadel paint sucks and the officially ordained workflow of "base, shade, layer" is a waste of time that only exists because GW needs an idiot-proof way to show people how to approximate the models on the box art even though their own studio painters don't typically use the same techniques or Citadel brand hobby supplies in many cases.

Horus Heresy is done and needs to be let go by GW and the Player base.

Citadel Paints are thick wads of crap that only sell because of the massive amount of painting guides that can't be bothered to use another line of paint names

WHFB deserved what it got

True Line Of Sight needs to be completely purged. Model and Terrain height should be a stat based on base size or general model size and the whole thing should be abstracted like any game created after 2000A.D.

But what about the magical rotating malcador defender? Have you considered how it will suck not being able to fire 5 heavy bolters at a target by break dancing a tank?
