It is the over-the-top-80's, super-gritty-90's, and depth-demanding-2K's all blended together into one multimedia story. It harkens to the classic tales of the Gothic Age, the epic fables of Northern Europe, the darkness and detached sentimentalism of WW1, the corrupt tales of the urban underworld, the mind-warping fantasies of Lovecraft, and all while maintaining a sense of dark humor and romantic heroism.

No, really, WH40k was a joke which has over inflated into something which could become a vehicle for ideas which can be pernicious for a non prepared mind which can misunderstood the setting.

First of all, oh, no. Not accidentally and unwittingly having a mindset that could be conductive to fascism! Fascism wouldn't have been a thing in the first place if human nature wasn't pretty conductive to it in the first place, you know. That's nothing to worry about by itself, any more than horrid, gory violence in video games warping the minds of our youth.

Secondly, why does it have to be either of those options? I don't care about the FASCIST FASCIST FASCIST part of W40K either way; I'm more interested in the faux-medievalism and over the top aesthetics, which have been shaped by many other influences as well.

Hey, WH40k can be either seen asa parody if you like it that way or can be thought of seriously, if the setting appeals to you. there is no need to be shitting on one or the other just because you don't like the alternative.

If I think ow 40k seriously, it does not mean I'm a retard who is amazed by over the top shit, and If I think of 40k in a more ironic way that does not mean I'm a stuck up asshole who disregards other perspectives.

I think that /tg/ is a testament to the co-existence and combination of the two views, judging by the amount of comical and serious material we've seen produced here over the years.
We've seen funny, romantical, serious and downright bizzare quests, stories, drawings and so on. I can be engaged with 40k and treat it seriously when I want to but at the same time i'm able to poke fun at it and laugh.
