I voted for 'Dark age', for it's much more fun to see some beheaded minifigs and bloody corpses with an axe-wielding berserker next to them.
As for this piltogg-Rayhawk 'debate' thingy, I support Rayhawk all the way. At our gun-involving games we start at least some 20" away, so riflemen can't shoot at the first round. If the battle has only CC weapons, the range will be reduced, maybe to 10-15", depending how we feel, if there is any fast-moving units (horses, ninjas) and something I forgot. The 'long' range is because then you can use some maneuvering. So, even when I understand piltogg a little, I have no idea why he complains about minifig movement.
