iv seen these type of post on another site so i thought it would be intesting too see what people say from us here on warseer

I think you play too much 40k when you look at your pay check and think
" hmm i got 3 boxes of daemonetts and a soul grinder this time"

when you check dice out in a pratice game too soo if they like you or not

When some one yells "cockroach" you ask for a las-cannon. When one is not forth coming, you begin declaring "exterminatus" on the general vicinity of the "bug alert" because you realize that it is too late for these poor souls. They were probably infested already anyway.

Someone says, "I'm allergic to spores" and you think, "Who isn't, those things explode!"

Many times I've been thinking of using it as a swear word, though I wouldn't like all the attention I would probably get so I havn't tried it yet, but soon, yes soon hopefully. WAAAGH!

Also, some of mine:

- When you can tell what color you're using based on taste (probably impossible, but if you REALLY play and paint enough warhammer, who knows?)

- When someone speaks about aliens you instantly react by saying ''Xeno scums!'' without thinking.

- To have luck on your tests you wear as much blue as you can on the test day. (A bit guilty actually, as unlucky I was it didn't work very much, should've wore more blue damnit.)

And a few others:

When you start thinking that all other aliens/enemies are wusses compared to anything from 40k (guilty and true.)

When you start to write fantasy novels based on warhammer 40k (also guilty. And not of the relatively respectable "Space Knights", but of the "Human waves of close order riflemen with commissars walking behind them" type.)

No here is a worse one:
When you own well over $2.5k of models and do not have any close friends who do the hobby.

When you think that hot pockets are perfect for dinner because they take up so little work space and don't get shavings tuck in it as easily.
When you fantasize your army is real... "You'll be sorry when the strike force rolls in!"
When you can accidently drill through the model you are working on and into your finger without pain.

But we all know that most women have the stubborn USR ( also referred to as being contrary just because she can...), and we know Stubborn is generally better than Fearless.

I'm certainly guilty of having preferred paint colours, being able to write Guard lists accurately from memory (limited useful options and memory for useless things....) and a couple of the others

Clockwise, you take tyrns with your mates around the table rolling a scatter and an artillery dice (sustained or any other dice could work, too). Who ever it lands on, they have to drink half the number of fingers as on the arti dice (or, regular dice, the number). A hit means you have to drink yourself. A misfire (or a 6) and everyone drinks 2 fingers. A hit and misfire (:evilgrin:) everyone drinks 5 fingers FOR THE EMPEROR!

when you watch war,sci-fi and/or action movies and your only thought is: "yeah... thats good, but a (insert 40k character/unit/race here) could have done it better"

for example at the end of terminator 3: rise of the mechines when the nukes are falling.
my only real thought was "yeah thats cool, but an inquistor lord and a fleet of imperial ships could have done it better".

and rambo.
"yeah this is good, but an unarmoured marine would have just ripped there heads off, which visually would be much cooler than just shooting them".

in die hard when the swat try to use an armoured car to get into the building then shortly after to gets blown up by a stinger missle.
"tsh! i would have used a squad of terminators in a land raider, chances are the rocket would have just caused a glancing hit"

Yeah I'm guilty of being able to write a list for my three armies from memory. I struggle most with the nid biomorphs though.

What about when you spend 6 weeks without a job and every day from ten til six you're there. Painting your Saim-Hann force and you only leave for a periodic interview or a tiolet break? After three weeks I was an honourary staff member and the manager got me into trouble for being 15 minutes late. A week later I didn't turn up at all and one of the blue-shirts called my mobile to find out if I was still alive!! :D

When you use the the Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer in your games with Imperial Guard more than the Codex.

So true, i've even tried to pep talk losing players with the words - "The Emporer protects".

:you pray to your primarch/the Emporer for important dice rolls.
:when you get pissy if someone writes/types Emporer with a lower case 'e'.
:when you make a model in your guard army to represent you.
:when you are gutted when said model dies ignobly
:when you care more about being able to field lovingly converted miniatures than tactical ability in your lists.
:when you dream of how an up coming battle will go.
:when your smack talk pre, during and post game consists of threats of excommunicas diabolus!
:when you cannot beat eldar because you still are obsessivly annoyed by warp spiders from 2nd ed and chase them round the board trying to kill them in close combat!
:when you think close combat is more honourable than shooting - and lose your space wolves trying to kill a c'tan this way!
