Default 40k of Awesome

We've been having a lot of negative threads lately so I wanted to shift it a little bit with something light for a change. This is not a thread for bitching about things you don't like. We have enough of those already. If you don't agree with someone just let it be and move on. We don't all have to agree here, it's just an open forum to share some stuff so we can talk about things we enjoy for once. So here goes:

What's your favorite thing in/about/around/related to 40k? It can be a model, fluff, rule, whatever. Anything 40k related is fair game.

To start, my favorite tank is the GW Exorcist. I love how over the top it is. An church organ. On a tank. That shoots missiles? Sign me up! It's honestly the model that got me into playing Sisters of Battle, and I love it even more for it.

To steal a line from St Schwartzernegger the best thing about 40 k for me is :
"Crushing my enemies, see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentation of their women."

I also like that it can be whatever I want it to be and I can change that depending on my mood.

The 'gunslinger' rule and how cool models running with two pistols look.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

The Legion of the Damned. Sheer awesome those guys are. I'm sad they don't play out well on the table due to cost, but, I love the look and the relentless nature of them. At some point, I will have a maxed out FoC slot just for them.

Bolter porn with large armored muscle men.

And Lifta-Droppas, Shokk Attack Gunz, Madboyz, Weirdboy Towers are probably the most fun units.

In the early days. An ork upgrade, the gyro stabilized monowheel.
The shokk attack gun.
Dreadnoughts. Concept, not rules.
Power armor, i know its not unique to 40k but the 40k original concept is bloody awesome.
The tyranid grabbaslasher. I know its not there anymore but it was cool.
The rules for the ork splatta kannon. That was original.
Beetleback warlord titans. The coolest ride in the 40th milennium.
The original vehicle names in epic 40k for the orks.
Spleenrippa, bowelburna(my personal favorite, sounds like a potent beverage), gutrippa, skullhamma,gobsmasha(Another favorite) and so on.

Finally the original spacemarine epic scale rulebook. There were fluff pieces in there that i remember to this day, despite being completly unable to find a copy of that book anymore. They were brutal and over the top and i so miss reading those.

Fuck, thats quite a list, maybe i am showing my age.

Jes Goodwin miniatures. How else is Maugan-Ra still so cool?

Chaos. Evil warping the good. Evil screaming tragically against itself.

Rogue reader era chaos models.

I like the fact that there are so many races, chapters, regiments and stuff that you can pick an army the really reflects your personality. Or create it. Or just pick something completely different.

I like converting every single model, even just a little thing like tilting the head towards the weapon when it is aiming or looking towards where a pistol is pointed.

And finally I love lascannons. Lots of them. I can never have enough.

Check out my army: Iron Warriors 44th company

John Blanche, his work is like something from a wonderful nightmare of adolescence when you were young enough to think beyond the reasonable and old enough to tint such thoughts with darkness. That which you cannot turn away from but cannot accept. That is what 40k is to me. A terrible, amazing, twisted and infinite realm.
