@ Whitemanticore : That's what I do - I've given up 40k and moved to Warengine. Far mor fast, simple and enjoyable.

@ Nazrat : Of course it is subjective !
(Besides, I don't deny that some people can love sorting dices, eh.)

POLL DESCRIPTION

As Andy Hoare explains in White Dwarf 297:

Warhammer 40,000 has a miniatures scale of roughly 1" = 3-6', making the average 28- to 40mm human about 6' tall in scale. The ground and time scale is more elastic, effectively telescoping out at long ranges and compressing at short range. For example a range of 24" would be ridiculously short even for the most primitive firearm if you go with the miniature scale. On the ground scale, however, the range equates to 3-400 meters at 24", shrinking to perhaps 50-100 meters when within 12". On the other hand, a 48" range equates to more like 2 kilometers.

What do you think of the concept of scale, as used in the Warhammer 40,000 rules?
