gen.ahab Never really stopped caring about the universe, just the big picture. 40k from an individual or group perspective is still incredibly cool because events mean something at that level and stories can either progress or end depending on the results of those events. 40k from the larger, galaxy spanning perpective is a god awful unchanging cluster-fuck in which individual events have no meaning because, ultimately, Gilligan is never getting off the island. So I suppose I stopped caring about 40k as a whole when I finally got fed up with that knowledge and decided that I didn't care about the island, the ocean or whether or not Gilligan and friends would ever be rescued and instead decided to focused my attention on Mary Ann's ass. Because sometimes the beauty is in the little things.

Sethis I find it interesting that we have comments that the "Grimdark" died when Necrons and Tau were introduced, when for me it would be the complete opposite - 3rd Edition is the edition where the model range finally started catching up to the Grimdarkness of the fluff. Go back and look at 2nd Ed Orks. 2nd Ed Chaos. Some of the Guard. They look *ridiculous* to the point of comical. When Orks became BRUTAL in body and weaponry and Chaos lost their stupid obsession with circular horns... that's when we started getting Grimdark in spades.

Now the art and the fluff has always been in that place, but the models really didn't reflect it for a long time, imo.

Einherjar667 I am still very engaged with the fluff, I love it, but I only partake in the parts relating to the factions I like, and most specifically, the characters. I like Lysandar a lot, so I'm reading Mallodrax, etc.

This thread is kind of confusing.

Maybe there are some slightly better things to spend it on?

bitsandkits never really cared for the fluff aspect, but then again when i started the fluff wasnt important and was very minimal, but that was rogue trader era, i quite enjoyed reading deathwing novel as it gave a reason for the colour change from black to bone which was interesting,the story of the craftworld eldar and the fall were again interesting but they were just something to pad out an issue of WD or in the years to come a Codex, but personally i would prefer photos of painted minis, colour schemes and photos of battles and skip the fluff apart from a little explination of what the model/codex entry is.

So do I. It's quite possibly the most hopeless situation any poor bastard could find themselves in.

Pretentious? It was my opinion and a suggestion.
