It's not as different as you might think. We still have about the same amount of crime, rapes, assaults, talking back to your boss (yes, it's a crime in the USMC), but no gun crime. Maybe it's because we screen out all the retards?

The biggest advantages to meeting up at someone's house are: 1. convenience, not as far of a drive, 2. playing without interruption of the local rules Nazis, 3. playing with like-minded players. I like playing for fun, for the cinematic experience of seeing my painted army fielded against another painted army on a painted and logical field of battle. I don't get these things at the local game store. Generally, the local game store crowd are: 1. Too young, 2. Too obnoxious, 3. Too worried about winning using questionable tactics and rule loopholes, 4. unpainted armies or spray-painted, 5. not willing to sacrifice outcome for fun.

I don't think I should ever invite strangers for a game here.
Seems to me like your just setting the right ambiance for a game of WH40K, especially if the armies fielded are either CSM/Daemons or Dark eldar

But seriously I think I would feel a whole lot more comfortable playing a game at your place than I would be when playing at a hause that looks all normal. Or is that just me being my own Satanic sadistic self again?

Just wanted to say that^^.

shufflingeveryday In my thoughts, what i thought was that i wouldn't go to someones house flat out! But this is a problem easily overlooked. Then, id ask for a specific address and if its a supposed gaming club, do your research. Post here on Heresy looking for information, check google for info on the club, or even on a social networking site such as Facebook or twitter.

Weapon Hey guys, I'm just your regular 9-feet tall Heresy Onliner and I'd just like to mention that I have weapons concealed on every possible part of my incredibly muscley body.

I once met up with a guy that I met online, but I had to blow his brains out because his army list was cheesy. Seriously, what a noob lol.

My entire body is covered in facial hair and I have often been mistaken for Wolverine, but then people realise that he's shit compared to me because he's not as manly.

The best defence against an attack has to be the headbutt. No other gun comes close to the awesome destructive power of a butt using your own head.

Stay safe Heresy, and remember:

Fortune favours he who is prepared to totally shoot that guy in the head man.

Peace out.

(On a more serious note that isn't taking the piss out of this thread, don't meet up with anyone online. Ever. It's better to wonder what could have happened rather than suffer the potential consequences.)

Durant I want Tarantino to write a film, with a scene in it, with one W40k gamer pointing a gun at another over a gameboard, and the Tarantino dialogue is about a disagreement of the rules, or a dice roll or something.

Reading the last few pages of this thread just conjured up those images

"The emperor lays his hands upon me and emperor damn muthafucka smote thee down with furious vengeance that last dice roll was a 6 and not a 5"

V12ghoul I am an avid proponent of preparedness, as it often negates the need for a weapon. If you aren't in a dangerous situation you don't need a weapon. Still, I've been playing football for almost a decade, and with my height and weight there are few people who would mess with me .If I walk my dog at night I make sure I don't walk behind other people because I've been told I look really scary when it is dark, this also being one of the reasons I stopped trick or treating in the 6th grade. I also know from many ill advised "impaired" boxing matches that I'm very hard to knock out. Still, I always carry a 3" pocket knife with me at all times, mostly because at work or where I lived i'd have to cut through lots of rope or twine, but it also makes me feel more at ease. I've never had to use it in that fashion, as I am fairly non violent and can mediate a lot of problems between my group and another, and I rarely cause them myself.

I always think of the knife as insurance. If someone is feeling particularly "froggy" and pull theirs and I pull mine, they may be far less inclined to continue down their path. I know things could escalate but I'd rather have an equal footing in that situation than be at their mercy.

On guns, here's the deal: They are a great force multiplier and mediating tool, and chambering a round in a pump action shotgun will make somebody shit bricks.

I do think the discourse between the Canadians, Brits, and Americans is hilarious and incredibly stereotypical. In a good way of course.
