Mine is assembling the model, look at it when its varnished, dried, based and then thinking "Idon't like those arms". About 4 terminators have really crappy joints because of it

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

i always and i mean ALWAYS try and get my chaos marines into close combat with units that i know they can rape, such as the eldar, tau or imperial guard, and having them get massecred before they even reach them. i even have terminators and two obliterators to lay down covering fire but i usually get too caught up and never use them for that damn purpose. thats why i have daemons now!! can anyone say meatshield!

Here is the beginning of my fluff for my Iron Warriors Eighth Grand Company https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...ad.php?t=51842

"A fortress is a living thing: the commander its brain, the walls its bones, the sensors its eyes and ears, the troops its blood, their weapons its fists. This tells us two things: If one organ fails, the whole dies. And if the whole dies, no single organ can survive alone."

Believing that my units are better because I like how I've painted them. Honestly, I've found myself gazing at a mini I'm pleased with thinking "You're so fantastic no-one will ever be able to kill you!"

This turns out not to be the case.

Buying too much modells, then never finishing painting. Painting a modell or squad too long (my 9 TS modells are not done even yet, and I paint them since a month). Converting nearly every army, wich I owned (9. army this time on the table), consuming too much time, never get done with them, getting bored, and selling them (I still have 3 armies this time Black Templars, Eldar and Chaos SM).

Always writing hard lists, using nice tactics, but then, the dice is against me, as I attack a squad, witch I can beat (SM assault marines, 8 modells +vet searg with power fist+ chaplain with PW attacking 10 modells of eldar guardians +1 warlock), and ending beeing massacred (only the chaplain lived at the end of turn)... Oh, and watch as somebody uses my list, and my tactics, and butchering everything on the table, what does not belong to him... This is the hardest, and it makes me cry!

Buying too many armies, then throwing them out before finishing for another... Getting beeted too much time.

Beware the Palmtop Tiger!

Be individual

Breaking tape measures and then fumbling round the house only to have to rely upon a 15cm ruler!

Projects left half-completed.

I love assembling figs, converting, aven getting started on painting: basecoating, getting a layer or two down...then I lose steam as the process slows to a crawl, picking details a fig at a time...and change projects.

Five or so armies, all half-completed.
Sad really.

Spending the better part of the night making a list, then discovering it is illegal. Yeah, happened just now.
