Depends what type of game you want.  If you want to be able to take out
an MBT with a sword then WH40K.  If you want a certain degree of
realism then something more wargame, less toygame.

Personally, I like the WH40K background and may (just may) buy a source
book but I would never buy the rules because I just don't like that
style of play - far to many heroes, dice and randomness.

Well you will be pleased to know that you can't do this anymore, and it
has been unlikely that power armoured infantry could destroy and
armoured vehicle without a specialist assault weapon for at least 10
The new vehicle assault rules make it very difficult for even power
armoured infantry to destroy the armoured vehicles without anti armour
grenades or other specialist assault weapons. It's impossible for
infantry not in power armour to do.
It is possible for infantry to assault a vehicle and stun the cres to
prevent it from firing, dameage weapons and mobility units and maybe
kill it with enough circumulative damage results. 
All in all sounds quite reasonable to me.
Sounds like you haven't played the game for a long time, at least 2
editions have come and gone since the game was like that.
