How to make Warhammer 40K fun and awesome:

1) Stop going to tournaments and reading army list forums

Tournament lists strip everything inefficient out of the codex and wind up with 2-3 "good" armies for each. No special characters, no cool units, no themes.

2) Stop gaming at Games Workshop retail stores.

Stop buying your shit there if possible as well. Obnoxious employees, crappy customers and has the feel of a poorly run daycare center.

3) Build your own table, invite the bros over for beers and BBQ and Saturday afternoon wargaming.

Try to find friends who have read the books, or played Dark Heresy but have yet to take the plunge into 40K.
