Pepole who put all their models on the table before rolling for which side that is theirs.

Hehe my bad

I gotta say for me it's my opponent rolling and not telling me what its for. Like the game I had where my opponent declared firing with his Razorback's TL-LC and rolls 2 dice. After me going "wtf?" he explained that he always rolls 2 dice for TL weapons...

Well, it would have helped to have told me that in the first place

People who ask what you are playing, so they can change their army list to get an advantage.

If you took a Heavy Bolter and you are going against Grey Knight Terminators, don't change that shit to a Plasma Cannon while we roll for deployment.

I had a habit of sacrificing small children to the gods for victory. It worked just fine, but eventually it bit me in the arse when there were no kids left in the area.

And if that wasn`t bad enough, the local GW went kaput soon after, apparently because their customer base was diminished or some such. I haven`t won a game since.

Use livestock. They're easier to find, struggle less, GW keeps its customer base, and the Gods don't know the difference anyway

Furthermore, if you mutilate the livestock after sacrifice, people might think there's aliens in the area, and you're off the hook!

Ask for their list of approved/dissaproved rolling conventions. If they have a list and 2 dice for reroll is on the dissaproved list THEN concede the point.

Ask for a copy of How to Roll Ciditel Dice while your at it!

It might have something to do with rolling 2 dice instead of 1. I don't know about you but I roll better with 2 dice instead of 1

All it's supposed to do is speed up the rolling apparently.

Firing with a TL weapon? Roll 2 dice to hit. If both miss, nothing happens. If only one misses, continue as normal

Personally, it seems silly to me and slightly confusing for someone who doesn't know whats happening
