...plays against myself?
Just wondering here. If you do play against yourself, do you show any form of bias towards one particular side?
As for me, I do quite a bit. It's how I learn what some units can and can't do, and get more liberal experimenting with stuff than I ever would/could in a competitive game, and it's an EXCELLENT time killer.
I voted no because
a) I would be totally biased towards my Dark Eldar and
b) I only own one full army, which is probably why I'd be so biased towards it.
Even if I did, I'd probably not let any of my favourite models die, so it would be pretty pointless for me. But it doesn't make you strange, people play chess against themselves. I can't do that either 'cause for some reason i'm always biased towards the black pieces.

I play might against myself on occasion when I am trying out a new unit or strategy and none of my friends are around. I try not to bias toward any particular army, as I try and honestly think about what I would do in each situation for both sides. The hardest part is that I cannot "trick" myself, because I know what I am planning, so fight are usually brutal, and might not be representative of anything but how good a unit is.
I do not play with myself, much.
I only do it when I'm bored, because god forbid I actually finish painting something!
Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
Although I math hammer something chronic and really that's virtually the same. I also create dozens of army lists I never use, and character builds I never try which again is the same sort of thing.
In fact I suppose actually putting the models on the table and using them is probably better than thinking about it!!!
I sometimes put together small one or two squad forces just to see how something might work in the game. I try mathhammer but if i really want to know how my lictor will fare against a couple of terminators, i drop them on the table and see how it plays out. I never however go so far as to create army lists and place terrain... hahahah that's just a little sad.
I can just picture myself with a nice glass of wine on a saturday night playing warhammer against myself... lol!
Don't know what I could learn playing against myself that I couldn't learn with a calculator. If you enjoy it, who's to question that? As a pracitce technique? Seems like a good way to get caught badly offguard when you develop expectations about what's going to happen based on your own playstyle!

The answer is nah can imagine it makes as much sense and is about as much fun as playing your self at chess.
Well, I was wondering how long it would take for somebody to go there... While it did take longer than expected, I've not been disappointed. Bravo, Liffrea!
As for playing against myself, (not going there, either...) not really, no. Some minor math hammer, but that's it.
