Have a heavy one around for good measure. A fist full of Grey Knights will shut anyone up. Then there's the Furioso if you want to be really serious...

I've gotta be honest, I never had any trouble at school, happily admitted I played, but also led a pretty good social life, played rugby to a high standard for the school (sussex and south england champions, tours around wales and ireland), had a big group of friends and just generally had a bit of a laugh.
One of the guys gave me a few jokey comments just recently, so I actually showed him a few models and he very quickly changed his tune to being impressed.

So my advice, don't be known as the kid who plays warhammer and calls everyone else stupid, be known as the kid who is "friendly, pleasant, good at something he does, be it sport, sing, dance, up for a laugh oh and he plays with toy soldiers, but thats allright"

I'm in many school activities, I'm even going to the drill teams end of the year banquet. but i don't try and hide my love for WarHammer. if your proud but not hostile of the hobbies you do then most people will leave you alone. i hang out with "jocks" a lot in class and I've rarely been hassled about warhammer. remember i live in Texas [the big one close to Mexico for all you Europeans] and everything here is god and football.

as for the fat kid shouting bang bang. you can video it and then video yourselves playing and show everyone the difference. also send me the video of tubby shouting bang i need a laugh.

Some of us shout "ee-yow! dakka-dakka-dakka-KRUMP! 'What's that Captain Arglebargle? You've had your ass blown off? Oh dear dear me...' NYooW! g-SHAAAH! fooo... fo-fooo..." while we're actually playing 40k though, to be fair. The main difference between army men and 40k is that we have rulers.

ah, i see what you've done there. realising that the average European's grasp of geography (even American geography) is better than the average US citizen's grasp of geography, you've deliberately confused where Europe is; making the reader think that you think its one of the southern States presumably, and thus that they wouldn't really understand such things. though of course the irony of the joke is that you (as the writer) have intentionally displayed a lack of knowledge embedded into your accusation. very clever.

that or unintentionally stupid.
