LOL. I remember a time when i was at a giant DAKKA DAKKA(an old gaming club up here in NH, gone now sadly) megga battle. Like 20 armies spread over 12 tables. Was so fun, it included BFG, and they could send bombardments down on the tables if they were near a planet. It was so fun. Either way, I wasn't playing just watching. And one guy with a earthshaker was shooting from one table to another. The players at the table being shot at were in a big dice rolling session, so they guy had me make a guess. I way over guessed and caused the shot to go into his own sides tanks. Destroying one and killing a bunch of guardsmen. I quickly left.

This has happened when I would play my friend. This kid whom we frequently played (but in the end we'd get raped) would come over and help out my friend with just about everything. I let this slide the first time because my friend was still kind of new to the game. But every time he did it, I would pretty much get fucked. Mostly I would win still, but sometimes he won because he had help.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

I really enjoy watching other people's games, but I usually only ever watch one turn. Any more than that and I think you run the risk of getting drawn into the battle and inevitably taking sides. I like to see the standard of their painting and modelling, first and foremost. But I also like to see their army compositions and the tactics that they use.
I'll happily chat about the paint and modelling aspects of the armies on display, but I don't ever volunteer any tactics.
When I'm playing I'm happy to reciprocate and am more than pleased to talk about my Eldar or Space Wolves with whoever cares to stop by. But I will not tolerate a "Back Seat Driver" chipping away behind me, telling everybody what I should and should not do. I'll give them a chance though and ask them to stop, after all anyone can make a mistake. But if it continues to happen, I will ask the shop manager to remove them.

Though I take your life, I promise you the stars...

I don't backseat game, mainly because I hate it myself. I do hate it when you have little kids come over and they think they no more than you, when they've been doing the hobby for about a day. Although, I do like it when an actual pro comes along and gives advice to both players, but not overdoing it by taking over literally.

I've never really experienced back seat gamers that much, I think the only time was when I was at GW Salisbury, and there was some complete idiot trying to get me to do this and that. I didn't want to considering I was doing what I wanted, not what he wanted.
