I've always thought all the Titan Models look dumb and I'd never want to own one. Same goes for the Imperial Knights.

8th Edition is tons of fun

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.

I've got one!

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.

The Codex Astartes is Guilliman's poor attempt to replicate the Alpha Legion's efficiency-through-decentralization doctrine after losing to it and would have been far better if Omegon or Alpharius had written it.

The HH series should have never been written.
Primarchs have no place in 40k
AoS will be a mistake in the long run
Primaris are terrible and out of scale. Cadians are the problem- not marines. This whole "bigger is better" paradigm just seems like small knob syndrome to me.
40k is a setting, not a storyline- no matter what Reddit says.
Titans have no place in 40k
I think painting guides are bad and homogenising an art form. They have their place, but they're guidelines- not rules.
Tau should be a republic of loads of minor alien races and not big battlesuits all the time. Both can exist in their background (and they do) but only one gets proper representation.
Memes killed people's correct appreciation of 40k's fluff.
Metal is not the devil incarnate
Plastic is not the saviour
Parts should be made out the material that is most appropriate. PP gets this yet GW wants to go plastic all the way at the expense of easily breakable spindly bits that by rights should be metal.

Honestly I just ignore it. It's fine for those that want it but I prefer my HH as 10000 year old legends. I treat anything I hear about it as an interesting story that may have happened, not some sort of "official canon". 40k doesn't really do canon in the way most things do anyway.

Based on these initial posts, I imagine this thread is gonna end up like every popular opinion puffin meme, where you say something that's actually NOT terribly unpopular so that way you don't get a lot of hate being thrown your direction.

I wanna see some actual unpopular opinions.

Here's an actual one I have: Black Templars lost nothing of value that cannot be represented in the regular Vanilla codex outside the Vows, where everyone only ever took the same one anyway so who cares?

I'm particularly saltly about it as it's ripping apart the legends and background and giving them tangential form which is bleeding into 40k. I've said this before but I loved when you didn't know the fates of some of the main movers and shakers and they left it up you. One personal example for me is Garro whose fate was left up to the reader to decide in IA DG. I chose him falling to Chaos like the final paragraph describes and he lead my DG for a time (I converted a new version of him recently and he's to the left of me now waiting to be painted). Then BL comes along and goes "No ackshulllay....." and gaks all over this intriguing piece of fluff by removing all of the mystery.

Please leave my town.

The Emperor is actually a completely selfless (if ruthlessly Utilitarian) individual; he really was the only person who could have saved humanity; he really did have a workable plan to do just that; and he ultimately failed because Chaos outplayed him, rather than due to any real mistakes on his part (the mistakes he did make were due to Chaos manipulating his prescience, not to stupidity, ego or 'being an incompetent parent').

That unpopular enough for you?

(I also agree with everything Grimtuff has said in this thread apart from the bit about AoS.)

Melee troops dying when they try to walk across an open field to try to engage machinegun nests in fisticuffs is a feature, not a bug.

The "Dark Angels are really Chaos" meme is so cliche and overdone I think less of anyone who posts it.

Is it a meme? I've been doing it for years because my main opponent was Dark Angels and I liked to wind him up. I guess I was doing it before it was cool...

Just living up to the thread. Hence why I don't really bring it up elsewhere and keep that opinion to myself.

To expand on it, I think there will be a point where (in a weird circular way as this was kinda possible before) both 40k and AoS will eventually become so similar that they'll essentially be the same game and you can play them against one another. GW's strength (from their perspective) is the "closed environment" they provide to players. If they want to look to a different game- it's there for them so they don't need to peek outside the GW bubble. AoS (even though it's not my cup of tea and I think everything they're doing for AoS could have been done for WHFB to save it, but I digress...) is different enough from 40k right now that you can flit between the two systems if one gets bored and/or burnt out with one of them.
Taking that away so there's only one mass battle game in your massive catalogue (compared to other companies) of games you risk having players take a peek outside the ecosystem you've created.

People are too invested in 40K being a tournament game. It’s a side hobby, not the PGA finals

I’m more interested in actually getting a working game from GW’s boxed sets (like Black Fortress and Forgebane) than the actual models that come with the boxed sets.

I think IP laws should go to hell.

The average person viewing this is bad at this game and needs to accept that their personal bias and/or opinion on changes is actually probably not even worth typing.

Blood Angels, Custodes, Tzeentch, Alpha Legion, Astra Militarum, Deathwatch, Thousand Sons, Imperial Knights, Tau, Genestealer Cult.

I have a problem.

Being contrary for the sake of being contrary doesn't make you unique, it makes you annoying.
