Where a space marine with a bolter was one of the least cost effective units in the game
When eldar were beyond good, especially warp spiders
When space wolves could outshoot just about any army, despite the fact they were supposed to be HTH army
Where the balance of power between codices was so out of whack, that current players have absolutely no idea what codex creep really means.
Where a sword could parry a pistol
Where it was more dangerous to be inside a rhino that out in the middle of an open field
When it was quite possible for a character to kill an entire army on his own, and usually did.
Ah, the memories.
Most models cost twice as much as they do in the current system. So your armies will be small. 1500 was a good sized game, 2000 a big game. However, 1000 points was really too small a game to be fun.
Don't take the game seriously, don't try to optimize your list. Play for fun. This game was not balanced in the least. People who complain about balance in 5th edition have seen nothing yet.
