Based one of many 8th edition discussions, I'm interested in trying to get an idea of one's ideal game scale.

So, the question I propose is "If you were to redesign 40k to any scale you wanted, what size model would make an ideal centerpiece (single, largest model) to an army/team?"
- Do you mean Grothammer 40k?
- Average-sized infantry: Officer, sergeant, Nob, etc.
- Large/elite infantry: Terminator, Tyranid Warrior, Wraith, Crisis Suit, etc.
- Small, light vehicles and MCs: Trukk, Chimera, Rhino, Raider etc.
- Large vehicles and MCs: Leman Russ, Land Raider, Carnifex, C'Tan
- "Borderline superheavy": Wraithknight, Imperial Knight, etc.
- Superheavy/GMC: Stompa, Baneblade, etc.
- "Extra Large Superheavy": Thunderhawk, Gargant, Imperator Titan, etc.
- My army is the planet you're fighting on

Since it looks like GW has decided to totally revamp the rules for 40k with this new edition, should they have switched to metric?

Yes or no is fine.

Given the 8th ed rules are you likely to:
1) Start 40k again/ take up 40k
2) Increase/start spending on 40k
3) Not change your spending
4) Decrease/stop spending on 40k
5) Sell your miniatures and find a new wargame

I found the "how old are you?" poll to be quite interesting, perhaps a "how long have you been war gaming?" would be a good counterpart?

I couldn't find this as a poll, so hopefully I'm not repeating someone.

Poll idea:
Do you prefer video battle reports or reading a battle report with photos?

Given the apparent schism between fans I'd like to see how Dakka polls on The Last Jedi.

Did you like The Last Jedi?

Yes (under 25 years old)
Yes (25-45 years old)
Yes (over 45 years old)
No (under 25 years old)
No (25-45 years old)
No (over 45 years old)

Poll... (feel free to add poll options)

Title: What does wargaming smell like to you?
Subtext: I always have certain smells I associate with the hobby. I always like opening a new box and book and the smell it brings. It's like pulling the cork on your favorite bottle of spirits. The whole thing is a sensory experience, even if not a pleasant one for some people.

With V2 of Age of Sigmar out, how about a poll that lets people pick what armies they play. Allow more than one. Make sure to include all the old WHFB armies as well.

Here is a question for the audience( Question Time style! )

If GW / FW was to release an Imperator Titan - for Adeptus Titanicus - would you purchase one?

If so, would you purchase it in plastic or resin?

Thank you.

Titanicus grade Imperator would be... what, 40k-grade Reaver size?

Probably would...

Experience is something you get just after you need it
The Narkos Dynasty - 10k
The Iron Serpents - 7.5k
Vulker Cavaliers - 3k

(and any other army in 40k thats worth a mention, so not assasins, or imperial fists because they come under Spae marines)

I'm dyslexic and thus am bad at spelling and grammar please don't remind me in comments to my posts.

The flesh tearers really like killing so much. They love doing it to people face's just they like doing it to their buddies as well.

The most popular 40k army at the top of this forum is in dire need of an update.

On the other hand, if it's the consensus that such a 40k specific thread isn't deserving of front page attention, how about we lock the old one, and I'll create one myself over on 40k general?

How much potantial do you see in digital support (in the style of mansions of madness) for implementing into miniature wargames/skirmisher?

0 - no potential at all - leave me alone with digital support, I like my game like it is.

1 - not too bad - I think apps are fine, but please let me have the choice not to use them

2 - digital is the future - I played Mansions of Madness/Imperial Assault and would looooove to see something like this in a wargame/skirmisher.

3 - Whatever - I don't care

How important is it for you RNG (RandomNumberGeneration) is a part of a miniatures game?

1 - I hate RNG! I like keeping control. I like the card solution in Malifaux.

2 - It's okay where it's necessary (ie. Hit-Rolls) but anywhere else it's just annoying.

3- RNG ftw Gimme a bucket! I have to roll!

What's your usual points limit in your 40k gaming group?

(My gaming group rarely has time for 2k clashes, because.. life, children etc.. Based on the armylist section it still looks like others are playing at 2k level. Wondering if that's true - Other question would be do your gaming group finish 2k matches in the tourney format time or do they go over most of the time, but like I said totally different question)
