I'd rather play SG or DS or FT than 40K or Epic or BFG, but, I LOVE
the background to 40K (since Rogue Trader). Without really ever
saying it out loud, it's Science Fantasy horror. The 40K universe is
horrific, and honestly that's what I like about it. Both 40k and
Warhammer Fantasy posit settings right out of the best stories of H.P.
Lovecraft, only instead of Mythos, it's Chaos (and Necrons and Orks
and even Eldar). I'm in my mid 30s, but I do love Death Metal, so go
My wife loves the 40K setting too, but she's not a fan of Death Metal
and could honestly care less about what rules we play, she just likes
to see her Nids eat things.
