SW terminators with runic charms. You have to wound every member in the squad 12 times to take them out with normal weaponry. Frick. One would expect for a whole heap of models to die if you deal them 20 wounds. SW terminators might lose one.

Aside from that, creating a grim/dark background for tau ethereals was kind of unnecessary.

I hate people that can't commit to showing up for a game or fully taking part in a campaign they signed up for the most.

thats my next project
9 wolf guard terminators wolf priest rune priest all in terminator armor all runic charms + wolf tooth necklaces and lots of cc weps i might even add ragnar to them :D


my thing i hate the most.

i jump out of tank and kill a squad and i move back into cover away from enemy.

he is to far away to assault me so he cheats with there moving

so i really hate movement cheats.

moving there back models in front of there front models and so on or moving a extra inch or 2 and thinking i don't notice, or moving tape measure sever inches in front of squad and moving them that many inches its a joke i hate movement cheats

Non-fluffy armies.
By which I mean Armies that don't follow the background.
I know its a small thing, and maybe some people play warhammer to Win, but with all the background available and all the characters and all the stories and open ended hints in a codex, I would have thought people would collect armies that they feel a kindred with rather than the ones that look the most powerful because of some beardy rule.

Now I can be very tactical. I know about flanking, ambush, deep striking, scouting, sniper, tank hunting, using cover, decoy units, meat shields, double decoy. I ge thow they work. But i refuse to infiltrate my berzerkers, because I can't see it working fluff wise.

And mixing Khorne with Slannesh, or Tzeentch with Nurgle, or space wolves with dark angels (I think theres emnity there...) or necron/orcs/tau/tyranids/Eldar with anyone.

...I know its unfair, as some people do just want to play to win and so build the most competitive army, which is fine, but leads to many people leaidng the same armies and thats just dull. Get some maverick armies together, An Orc army consisting of nothing but gretchin, snotlings and one Big mek with a shokk attack gun. A space marine army that doesn't use terminators. A Chaos hoard of troops. A Kroot army, with a modified Shaper for HQ.

Gah, i'm getting ranty now...

What I hate most about 40k, well...

10. My own dice. Gold-on-Purple is not easy to read while attempting to pacify your opponent.

9. The new Chaos Codex. The followers of the Dark Gods don't work together! They fight bitterly! At ALL times!

8. The new codexes in general. A pox on those who took the armory away!

7. Non-fluffy armies. (Huzzah! My army of Devastators and ten SM just destroyed your entire Infantry Company in one turn! Have at you!)

6. Gloaters. (see above)

5. People that nick your stuff while you go to eat.

4. Any type of cheating. Not knowing the rules is forgivable. Cheat and be P'wned.

3. The Ultramarines. Hate,Hate, HATE the blue meanies!

2. Fanatics (by this I mean people whose Golden Demon-winning army won't play you because your Heavy Bolter isn't painted.)

1. Jerks (The people who insist they are right, even when told otherwise, make you look up every rule your army uses, model ALL your wargear, reroll dice they claim not to have seen, brag about destroying your best character, and basically folks the game could do without.)

Cheaters by far.

Dice-roll-warpers, rule-benders and tape-measure-stretchers.

I've got a friend, who's hilarious and a great converter and all, but can't stand losing in a game. Doesn't matter what army it is either, he can find a way.

If anyone's got advice on how to pick up when your opponent is cheating, post it here. It'll help us all. (I mean, how can you stop someone who say, needs 4's to hit, and picks up like five 3's, and takes out two of them? I'd rather play a cheater than someone who stops you from enjoying the gameplay more than them)

RANT OVER.

I personally don't mind people with non-fluff armies, kinda pertaining to the old axiom 'whatever floats your boat'.
The only thing I don't like are cheaters (No, my termies weren't in the land raider! They're deep striking, duh noob! What do you mean do I have an army list?) and those damned rulebook whores, having to look up nearly every questionable maneuver and slowing the game to an insufferable pace.

While this is all fine for the time being, I want to make sure we keep the thread limited to gripes about the rules or an annoying behavior (such as not showing up for a game)-- these kinds of threads can get flaming REALLY fast, so consider this a preemptive warning to just watch what you post, because I really don't want to have to break up a fight.

I've never had anyone stand up a scheduled game, but I have had them bring a different army than planned when they were on my side, which kind of jacked up the Apocalypse game's strategy I'd figured out... it also sort of irritates me when people are really really late, or take two hours to take their turn.

I gave up using the word 'hate' except to explain why I don't use it anymore.
It is misused - if you have that kind of emotion toward broccoli, for example, you have issues. You can tell a lot about someone you have just met by how long their 'hate list' is. Try it sometime.

The thing I most dislike about 40k and GWs marketing in general is when an army specific rule is changed just to encourage people to buy more models - particularly when that rule totally wrecks an army I spent a lot of time and $ on.

Fairly easy fix for this is to ask the opponent to remove misses and leave the hits, then roll the next set of dice. It's something you should also do when you roll just to keep the terms fair.
