Never. I got bored playing Ogres because it's a. cast buffs, b. charge. That's the whole game plan). 40k has it's own imbalances (shooting > combat, for example), but unlike Fantasy you can build an army with minimal shooting, or minimal combat, or whatever. In Fantasy, you take a magic-heavy army, because it's the only competitive option.

This ^^^

Fantasy has no tactics, from what I've played and see its exactly as above
Step 1: bring magic
Step 2: win
Step 3: brag and tell everyone how tactical the game is -_-'

Love some of the models though
