This came up at my local GW today and we where wondering what was the Worst "Bending of the rules" anyone has ever seen.
For me it was 1 guy who rolled 3 4's for his tervigon spawning 12. However he said "Since i rolled a Triple i can swpan them again next turn". Needless to say it didn't stick and we said that yes you didn't roll a dobble......you rolled 3. Try to pull this agian and next time you roll a triple your tervigon blows up.
I'm sure it's not the worst out there but feel free to share any really stupid moments when people just can't read a book or chose to ignore it.

I always like it when a model has line of sight to mine. But on my turn I don't have line of sight?

Alas, that happens more often then I would like.

Dice rolling ... only a couple of people try carnie tricks on dice rolls. one guy hit or missed just below average when people were watching. Dice gods must not like him, but when nobody was watching, they loved him cause he hit more then anyone could, literally. He had something like 12 guys firing single shots, and yet ended up wounding 14?!? WTF I said, "I rolled well" says he. Not that fucking good guy, you wounded more than you shot, explain that one brainiac. I was a little bitter.

What i hate the most is people always moving that extra inch or so on the measuring tape and thinking nobody notices it. It's so annoying and then when you call them out on it they just call you a rules prick.

One of my favorites was when my local GW store (RIP) was running a team campaign. One team was made up of the manager and a red shirt, they were undefeated. I wanted to scout them out and see why they were so unstoppable so I sat in on one of their games for a bit. It was Necrons and Dark Eldar vs Eldar (team GW).

At one point the Necron Lord attempted to fire his 12" range weapon at the Avatar but was found to be just out of range. The game progressed and the following Eldar turn the Avatar assaulted said Necron Lord. Halfway through the Assault phase the Necron player said "Hey, wait a minute....?!"

Yeah, had that happen to me on a number of occaisons. Had a Hive Tyrant deploy 13" away from me, then it managed to assualt first turn. Needless to say I was not happy. Things like that, and seeing models slowly creep across the table when your not looking.

My biggest peeve is when people rotate there models such that somehow they are in range of shotting my units but when I counter shoot I'm just out of range. Not to mention rule book nazi's. The type who forget about a rule when they break a rule against you but when you try to do it back they pull out the rule book and repeatedly try to shove it down your throat.

The best one is leap frogging models. The First model of a squad moves say, 6", and then the rest deploy infront of it.

Big models moving. Owner measures from the front of the base, moving to the back. Suddenly those dreads became FA choices or what?

i got rules raped today. this daemon player fired his fateweaver's same breath of chaos attack twice each shooting phase, claiming that it was a special rule because he could fire two per turn. in my later game, i forgot to disembark kharn the betrayer and his berzerkers from their rhino...twice. :crazy:

For me it was at a campaign weekend in warhammer world.

My troops were at ground level and the enemy were in a high building (about 18")

When I fired the range was measured in a straight line, firer to target so I was just out of range.

When he fired the range was measured from the base of the tower, so he was in range. Apparently this was a club rule because of gravity helping the rounds along. I mentioned things like how does gravity affect laser weapons etc and then dropped the bomb that my job in the army is a muntitions specialist and he was talking shit from both a fluff and real life position. I said it all nicely but him and the mates he got over to talk me into it still looked at me like I was a rule breaking arsehole. :angry:

LOL i do that with my Nids. Shoot my Warriors and then run my rippers in frount of them to get cover saves and then next turn move them back otu the way and shoot angain and run back. It's the best use for rippers there is.

That's not what he meant. He's talking about 1 unit and a pretty obvious way to squeeze out a good extra 2 inches out of their movement phase.
