Throughout the 40k world there are the crazy nut jobs who think they can get away with anything. Just things that are so far off the rules you know they are made up.

So I played this 15 year old kid whom I had seen a lot around GW, he is playing SM. So first turn i'm taking out his rhinos with rail guns. And I rolled an explosion on the chart and he says I can't do that... Naturally I draw up a question mark above my head. So I ask him sarcastically why I can't do that, and he says he has like some special defense against it. I was like wtf...? And he says rhinos get it free, and so going along with it as a joke i said lemme see your codex, and in the rule page of the rhino, written on a piece of notebook paper taped into the codex says this rule. I started laughing and got the staff and they gently said that he couldn't do that. But, that was the most BS i have ever seen.

Some guy once came to a match i'd arrange with his army.

He had about 7 Heavy supports and 1 troop choice.

Literally he was playing tau, and had taken like 4 HH's a Skyray and like 2/3 squads of Battlesuits, with 1 squad of firewarriors.

I was just like, Erm, hang on mate; and he followed on to tell me that Tau had a special rule that meant they could take unlimited HS, as they are so good with supreme technology.

I then proceeding to pack my toys away, calling BS and going home.

What an asshole.

him: i have one, honest

Us: then what's that. *points at second chapter master*

him: he's an objective

us: riighhtt, an objective that moves shoots and calls down orbital bormbardments

Not BS but I have had a large number of people ask me to double check that Karandras really does get 7 S9 powerfist attacks on the charge.

I had someone, not that long ago, drag LoS back into 4th ed. during a tourney. '1 guy from my unit can see you, so that means the heavy bolter that is behind this mass of trees can also shoot even if he can't see because he is in the same unit'... No TLoS at all, very obviously and admitted by the player, but he insists.

I called over the GW tourney Judge.

GW Judge: 'Yes, he is right, he can shoot you with the heavy bolter because at least one of the models in his unit can see you...'

Me: 'But this is 5th ed., and we use TLoS now...'

GW Judge: 'No, I just told you how it works. Get playing or else...'

This guy is a store manager by the way.

Anyway, I spent the rest of the game mercilessly exploiting his version of the rules: holding whole units behind walls with only a single model looking out. I kicked his little arse so hard. He was far too young for the tourney and GW were taking a real liberty in letting him enter (they even lent him most of the models for his army).

GW are shit at running events, I have yet to see a good one, but that is a rant for another day...

Well I am currently re learning how to play, the other week I was in my FLGS and a lad asked me to play, he was only about 16 but I said yes as any gaming time to me was an advantage at learning how to play, I told him I was very rusty and would need help with rules e.t.c. and he insisted he would teach me as we play.

What a liar he was, and if it wasn't for a random guy walking past and overhearing something he said then he would of got away with it, the worst part was.

He failed a difficult terrain test with his sorceror with lash, who had one wound left, rolled a 1 but insisted he could use his power, thus pulling my Death Guard squad closer and then assaulting me, before the wound was allocated and killing him. After been pulled up about it he said OK fair enough, I'll roll a dice, on a 1 - 3 my Sorc dies and doesn;t get to shoot/magic/assault and on a 4 - 6 he does. I said on a roll of 1 - 6 I'm packing my stuff away and waiting for a mature gamer to teach me/play properly and respectfully and not taking me for a mugg. The random guy offered to play me and he did so and I learned a lot, I still lost but he was great sportsmanship.

to be fair, the dude who i'cve mentioned a lot in this thread tried to take me for a fool the other day, by trying to tell me how my own dex works:)

and then as i don't know the marine dex that well he tried to make his units better til i actually asked someone, who was better than him, suddenly the rules were playable and fair.

Not BS but definitely biggest douche ever

I was playing this kid at GW he's about 15 so I thought it was all good. Then I kill his troop choices and take all the objectives to win and guess what the mother fucker does. He picks up my runepriest that took a total of 5 hours to assemble convert and paint AND THREW IT ACROSS THE ROOM. My model shattered all the pieces that were put on all the greenstuff, everything flew off the model and went everywhere.

Now I'm a pacifist so obviously my response was that I punched the mother fucker in the face, and put him on the ground

May want to look up the definition for pacifist again.

Dirty hippy.
Love you too Katie

Actually I meant what I said about being a pacifist, I usually never use violence for anything (Usually do to my quicksilver tongue) but this kid is literally a jack ass he's stolen entire squads from people at the GW I go to. Of course I don't get to know this until after he fucking threw my model.

The next time I saw him I told him if I ever wanted to go to the hospital for any reason he just has to let me see him...I haven't seen him since. He actually calls the store to ask if I'm there.

I'm a pacifist but some people I'll make an exception for

Because even though we could tell that they were our models he had covered them in a shitty smurf paint job so we couldn't just say wtf those are ours. although i believe some people are going to try and steal shit back
