Default Your worst 40k habits

Hey guys, i would like to know what your worst 40k habits are, because we all know how annoying they get. here are a few examples, never finish gluing a model, always forget dice,have a great idea then get to your workbench then think "I really cant be bothered with this now".
mine is I never stay focussd when painting a fig and then it takes me like 3 days for an ork boy.

Would love to see this thread thrive with posts.

Well..... okay why not

I have a couple actually. One is checking the codex all the time to see if my guy's have a counter to a problem that they face( ie when facing a monolith)

Forgetting the Codex... or even worse. Bringing the "wrong" edition of the codex.

Forgetting most of the rules.

Making very bad army lists

Forgetting stuff like the outnumbering rules. Me and my regular opponent both completely forget about them every game, it's like they're a black hole or something.

Glueing models togther.

Assault marines - Had to saw of there pack backs, chain saws or pull of there arms to be able to paint them D:

Spraying the primer too thick.

Being too lazy to base the models (i'll do it one day i swear!)

Deploying like a moron in a game. I rarely - if ever - deploy well and I usually have to rely on my knowledge of both my opponent's army and my own in order to win.

Also, I'm terrible when it comes to looking around for potential threats before I move a unit. Far too often I've moved a unit and had it blasted or charged by something I wasn't expecting all because I didn't slow down and take the time to look around.

Planning a conversion and need a certain piece and not being able to get it so the conversions gather dust half done.(jetbikes and pre heresy termies).

that and not basing models

I'm walking towards you and drawing my sword. When it's drawn I shall kill you. And there's not a damn thing you can do to stop me.

That'd be spray-painting models and not washing off the paint. Go to work with black and red hands.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...
