I couldn't find a proper place to put this.
How well does the 40kRPG system hold up as a fantasy game? I know DH was basically a hack of WFRP 2e and my D&D group's usual slog through boring rules had me wondering about this. If you strip away the guns and fancy cybernetics and keep melee weapons, armor, and maybe psychic powers, then does it work well? I'd love the lethality of things.
Note: I'm not asking for someone to tell me to just play WFRP. For one, I know nothing about Fantasy's fluff and don't want to learn it either. This would just be a simple rules hack.
