hey, just wondering what your guy's pet peeves/annoyances are of any aspect of the hobby is; whether its about gaming, modeling, or painting...
ill start with four of my own:
1) in GW's, overweight gamers knocking over models with their belly when bending over the table...
2) obviously, unpainted armies on a really nice table...
3) spray paint getting on your "trigger" finger when you spray models, since its annoying to get off sometimes...
4) lastly, getting green stuff super glued beneath my finger nail..
I'd say that having unpainted armies/units on the table is my pet peeve. I've followed a simple rule since I've started playing 40k: If it isn't painted and based, it cannot be fielded in a game. Another annoyance is players who haven't figured out how the core rules work.

Painting doesnt bother me at all. Of course my group games with figures we've had for 17 years and never painted...
1. people who take the game too seriously
3. people who take the game too seriously
4. elitism against newer/less-experienced/less serious gamers
6. staff at GW stores
Soo...I guess my peeves all come down to players with bad attitudes. It is supposed to be fun.

My only peeve is that when something changes, and there have been a lot over the last 20 odd years, everyone acts like its the end of the world.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
The complete lack of a wonderful thing called deodorant.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
1. People who cheat and become angry when they get caught
2. People who don't know the rules but have had time to learn them
3. People who think they know the rules and while adamantly defend their point of view without provinding a thread of evindence
4. Unpainted armies which have had enough time to be painted (Im guilty of this one)
5. Lists that are tooled up to beat a specific army and are just created prior to a game against said army
6. People that take too much time to play the game (at least in a tourny setting)
7. People who dont own a rulebook and refuse to buy one
8. People who dont have their appropriate codex and will provide rules that seem suspicious
9. Mold lines on GW models
Im sure there's more, but I can't think of any right now...
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
Biggest pet peeve was going into a GW, starting a game with someone, making the list on the spot before knowing what my opponent is playing, and then finding out they altered their already highly competative list to be better against my army. (I usually didn't start up a game until about fifteen minutes after getting there, enough time for most people available to know what army(ies) I had at the time.) It was more of a bad luck thing but it always led to a pretty crappy six turns.

Yeah, tooling up your list to specifically take out someone is one of my pet peeves too. If you are playing in the store it should be an all-comers list. It makes it more fair and fun for everyone.
I have no problem with people having unpainted models, as some people are slow painters or just bought a new unit recently. What I do not like is people who proxy something without telling you that it is a proxy.
