    What weird things do you do in the hobby ?

    So, much like the title, what weird things do you do ? Mainly really random stuff, that usually get funny looks of others at your club (such as screaming WWWAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHH! outside the store and attracting as much attention as possible). My examples:

    - Sometimes I get the urge to set up every miniature I own in a battle line. I even take care to think about gun positions, how strong each flank is etc.
    - Other times I go to the store, and if no-one is there, I set up my army and sit and plan, like a madman. I once did this for a whole hour, without noticing the time go by, one of the staff had to come up and tell me how long it had been

    I don't really have any quirk other than always bringing my A game - I think to do otherwise is disrespectful to my opponent. I'll play "experimental matches" if a unit needs testing but even then I want a good game out of it

    All of my kroot, krootox and knarlocs (kroot mercenary list) are like pokemon - they can only say their name or parts of it, with deeper voices the larger the creature... its amusing to see people's expressions then they charge! ^.^

    A few very poorly constructed cardboard proxies come to mind.

    I have a lot of the oldschool superstitions:

    - Never say "anything but a 1", as you will definitely roll 1's. The correct term is "a 2+"
    - Painted models fight better
    - You can "waste" dice rolls. For example, if you roll a whole bunch of 6's in the shooting phase, expect a lot of 1's in the combat phase.

    I also have some of my own weird quirks.
    - Roll lots of 6's for an armor save? "You're makin Orky saves!"
    - Units have their own personality. This one is shared by some of my friends as well, who've been gaming with their army for a long time. You start to sense that some units really like to fill specific roles. For example, my friend has a regiment of Suarus who NEVER break from combat, and another that is rarely wiped out. I have a regiment of Chosen who are so bloodthirsty that they almost ALWAYS catch their enemy in a pursuit- even if they roll a 12!

    - I sometimes talk to my models, to encourage them to do well. "Come on guys- if you want to kill them, you have to hit them first" is a common phrase around my WOC.
    - I have a couple of HUGE crystal dice that I bought with tickets at one of those "game-and-drink" arcades. I roll them for important stuff, and have found that quoting classic 'Duke Nukem' (B**ls of Steel, in particular) will cause them to roll more successfully. The louder the better, but it's Duke Nukem, so screaming it can get a little offensive...

    Nope, painted models in my army always seem to be the ones to die, and the fully painted armies, well they just get messed up
