I been playing games at my local GW and it seems everyone is obsessed with cheese. Anything i use and win with must be cheese and god help you if you want to take more than one of the same thing in your army. I see much cheesier lists everytime i look on the net but If i take something like an example of Fear of the darkness librarian i get ripped into about it by 3 or 4 guys and the redshirts as i play with someone. There not even in the game. The libby walked into battle in a termie squad. it didn't even ds or pod into battle.

Another guy there got the same thing for having 2 wraithlord in his army and that was from a gw staff guy who has 3 wraithlords and no wraithguards in his iyanden army.

so whats with all the cheese guys? why can't i take what i want without all the comments and people saying maybe we shouldn't let him play in the store?

Depends on the tone they're taking really.

Sometimes it is no longer reserved for specific power gamer stuff, but used more as a slang term for pretty much anything.
Our group has moved onto calling everything and everyone 'gayers' however politically incorrect that is- :wink:
Maybe, just maybe- some people go to tournaments to play games of 40k against new people and new armies?
Not to play identical Iron Warriors netlists every game because you must Win At All Costs.

That said, I reserve 'cheese' for a very select few things.

Siren Prince is one- so I need to roll 10 or less on 2 dice to become invisible- I can then stroll forward in front of the enemy and fire out Daemonettes and Mounted Daemonettes without my enemy being able to shoot or assault me to stop this?
Sounds like god-mode to me.

Relying on your opponent to fail a Ld 10 test to even stand a chance in a game, or collecting a completely different army just for one advantage against one model- kind of proves how powerful it can be.
