Yeah. These are the best games I think GW has produced as they don't even
begin to take themselves seriously, and so attract a different type of gamer
to them. 40K and Fantasy players tend to take the game far too seriously.

The last word on Epic Fantasy I heard was a post-2000 release. And while
they would probably be fun to play together, I think the Man-O-War ships are
way out of scale to the proposed Epic Fantasy. Shame really, but then scale
is never any gaming company's stong point.
