What I don't like about fantasy was the squarish bases because they don't look cool. Other wise I would of started Fantasy instead.

I think fantasy is a better designed game (although it certainly has its problems), but to me 40k has that sci-fi coolness and that is why I play it considerably more than its medieval counterpart

Warhammer has the better rules, 40K the better universe.

Fantasy's got an overly cliche imagery and setting. But its got a really slow, complex and tactical set of rules and much less flaws in it.

40K's the exact opposite, almost good everything else but gameplay is relatively simple and fast paced.

40k definitely ;D Whereas the rules may not be as well developed as Fantasy, it is the better game. My main reason is because fantasy has no tactics involved. I used to have a Night Goblins army, and basically everygame you play is walking straight forward, your opponent does the same thing, then combat, with the odd bit of magic and shooting. Its NOT appealing
