Don't, after rolling that final 1 too many, flip out, climb up on the table and jump up and down on your opponent's models screaming 'APOCALYPTIC BARRAGE, MOTHERFUCKER!!!'.

Do: enjoy the game and find something to compliment your opponent on even if they are total jerks.

Don't: argue like your are trying to overturn a manslaughter charge. it's a game, refer back to the do

Do: be creative and adaptive in the way you play the game. Noone wants to see the same guy return with the exact same army list, tactics and deployment every time you play.

Don't: Never, EVER, wait to set up your army list until you get to your club/store/wherever so you can tailor your list to your opponent.

... How am I now supposed to deal out Imperial retribution?

On a side note, how can I never rep you when I want to do so?

The usual stuff we all read over and over anyway:

.) It's a game to be enjoyed by everyone playing it.
.) Be friendly.
.) Bring all the stuff you need for playing.
.) Don't ever touch anybody's minis without permission.
.) Don't even think of things that could give you an unfair advantage over the other player.
.) Forget everything you find clever and funny in terms of "psychological warfare" "expanded tactics" or whatever you call it. Acting like a dick is NOT part of the game. Annoying/insulting other players is not a strategy, it's antisocial behavior.
.) Try to avoid rules debates. If you can't agree, roll a dice.
.) Rolling dice is a way to get random results. Odds are influenced by the number and kind of dice that are rolled. There is no such thing as "rolling techniques to get you better results" or "learning how to roll a dice". All these things are cheating. (I know, it sounds weird but there are some people who think that you can or should "learn how to roll well").

All in all: Be someone others will want to play a second game with. Playing 40k is about all people involved having a good experience. Looking at 40k objectively, it's not a very good game, it's never been in the least suited for "serious tournament play" and never will be. So winning can't be the only objective.

Do: Wash at least 4 times a week, because i think some gamers struggle to wash 4 times per year.

Dont: start picking your nose, then moving your models into close combat with mine, putting your nasal contents into proximity with my painstakingly painted models ( this happened to me once)

Must admit, I have felt like doing that at times!
