We all dislike cheating, and bending of rules, and so forth.. but whats the worst you've ever faced?
My biggest pet peeve when it comes to stretching the rules is when people accord themselves an incredible amount of slack when it comes to movement. In one game I was in, someone had had a Vindicator and a Rhino side-by-side at the start of the movement phase, and at the end, after both had moved forward 12", the Vindicator ended up a good 4 inches ahead... well, it wasn't all that irritating, kinda funny when I thought about it and the lengths people go to to scrape that extra bit of advantage at any oppurtunity.
So what about you guys? Hate when people insist on moving something they forgot in the shooting phase? People who "accidently" measure a distance and, upon finding their range short, switch targets? People who seem to think inches are 50% larger then they should be? This, of course, includes both friendly and competition games -- all's fair in love and war! And if you want to fess up on some sly tricks you've pulled in the past, go ahead!

Playing against a chaos player who had an army consisting of armor save 2+, 4+ invulnerable khorne beserkers with khornite axe power weapons, fearless, who my hive tyrant for whatever reason could only wound on 5s. If I hadn't been such a newb at the time, I wouldn't have let it slide.
Said player got offended and refused to play me when I whipped out my newly bought chaos codex (the old one, current one at the time) to confirm that he could in fact do what he was doing.
I usually give it slack to about half an inch. However where I play everyone tends to keep it exact or under. If it's range then we're deliberate about it. Also we don't pull out the tape measures if some thing's moving under max movement. like a destroyer clearly moving 8 inches instead of it's full distance.
If someone's at least an inch off, then I'll fight them about it. Or I'll just kill the squad the next turn. After all, he moved them closer to me...0:

Playing against a necrons player, destroyed his necron lord 4 TIMES but he said that he WBB all of them. Man i was annoyed.
My biggest pet peeve when people cheat is when they try to play it off like they forgot the rule. I know all of us have forgotten a rule or two in our time, but when someone is constantly forgetting core rules so they can have an advantage it pushes me over the edge. In 40k when you should read and know your codex this ignorance I feel just means you have no respect for your opponent aka your friends.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
I lost my hero in the first turn of a game, because i completely forgot about the independant character rule, granted that he didnt know either, infact he knew LESS rules than i did, cos he was just getting back in after years of no warhammer. But it probably cost me a fair bit.
jkidd88, unless that lord was getting killed in assault against weapons that deny armour saves, or was getting shot and killed by weapons that beat the lords save while he does not have a res orb, then he does get to keep making WBB rolls.
omgitsduane, isn't this kind of the wrong place for that? I mean thats not actually your opponent cheating, its both of you forgetting a pretty handy rule that cost you your leader.

when the opponent rolled the dice at his own models, knocking them down and places them up even closer than they were before. but of course that's why I started a nid swarm army, the closer he is, the more fun dakka flyrant has.
or when he trys shooting his heavy weapons, when he obviously moved at least one guy in the squad, and saying he "forgot"
I do anti-cheating, as in: you cheat constantly, I tattoo the rules on your fourhead, so now the people you're trying to cheat know you're cheating.

I didn't say it was cheating, i was adding onto some guys talk about how people forget core rules. And id say not being able to pick off a hero is a core rule.
My biggest problem with cheaters is when someone I played with used 3+ for WBB rolls. After the game was done I realized how quickly he would have been phased out, if only I had read through his codex.
