Default Most Embarrassing Moment dealing with 40k or WH

So just for the sake of laughs
Whats the most embarrassing things thats happened to you involving this hobby!

I'd have to say what takes the cake for is..
I had a friend over, a girl, and pretty cute girl!!

I totally forget that the night before i had a gaming night in my basement, my 40k stuff is all over. it looks like a Ork horde has vomitted all over my basement.

Well not thinking i bring this female down there...
First thing she says is "umm are these your toys!!!"

no first off everyone knows that these are not toys!!!

I some how manage to bite my tongue and not go off about them not being "toys"
But unfortunetly it was too late i was sunk she kept pressing the questions "what are these things" " do you still play with these toys"
There was nothing i could do i had to explain the hobby to her.....
We'll say i didnt see her again :-(

Well thats one of mine
whats one of ur embarressing hobby story?

bad luck dude



turning up to lotr tournament only to realise the whole time i had been playing lotr before that i had read a basic rule wrong


it was the fight one where you roll your attacks and the highest wins the fight

what i read it as was that you ADD the dice scores together

so i brought my goblins and argued with the guy i played
it was 2 goblins on an archer from rohan and i rolled 2 4's and thought it was 8
the other guy rolled a 5

and you can see where that lead to...

Well, that is pretty bad luck lol, should just say the truth like I did a couple hundred times " it is a hobby I like to do, it kind of like dungeon and dragons upgraded, it has a modeling and painting quailty that I really like". Never heard anyone say anything about it negatively before lol. I actually won my girl over with warhammer lol.

My wife and I have the real slaanesh daemons "the old ones" and the greater daemon of saanesh "forgeworld" Then we had to try and explain to her grandmother why there is porn on our shelves and little demons in our house beside our Crucifix's. Long couple of days trying to calm that storm lol.

My dad and I organized a Kill Team tournament at our FLGS, and we made three trophies, for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. I won 1st, my dad won 2nd, and my friend won 3rd. Nobody else who attended won.

Kind of embarrassing, because it would seem that the players (who payed to get in) should have won something.


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

I was down stairs painting some of my models in underware, and then one of my brothers friends showed up. "Hi, I'm Thom's brother." Wareing nothing but skivvies holding a paint brush surrounded by little toy space men. Then I saw this said friend many years later and he still remembers the first time he saw me, sitting in the basement in underware painting.

My most embarassing moment was here on heresy, when I posted that scarabs had FC because they were beasts. I think I posted it on 3 or 4 threads before my brother convinced me I was wrong. Then I had to respond to all the heretics saying i was wrong.

Sometimes i wonder 'Why is that frisbee getting bigger?', and then it hits me.

So, I was trying to help a wee kid learn to play 40k, he was using an obviously bought and painted by parents army, very competitive list of blood angels, and I thought to myself, well for shits and giggles I'll run some thousand sons and a tzneetch daemon prince without wings for some laughs and hopefully he'll win and have a good time. Oh god was I wrong. Every single one of his weapons continuously scrubed up every shot possible, my rhinos drove across the board, into the face of riflemen dreads and a landraider, which all common logic would say that more than 4 auto cannons and a plethora of las cannons should stop 2 rhinos and a daemon prince. Then not only by the time I somehow made it across the board, I had ridiculously lucky roles, the daemon prince exploded the landraider killed 3 terminators inside. It was very ugly, and it felt bad beating a little kids 2k list with 800 points of chaos just slapped in some rhinos and a daemon prince.

you should have distracted her by sticking your tongue in her mouth, she cant ask hobby questions if your playing tonsil tennis.

Never had an embarrassing moment with the hobby myself, though i did see a red shirt have one when my wife owned his ass at the till when she corrected his Ork fluff knowledge in front of some shop dwellers he was showing off for.
