I've recently had a few pretty bizarre things happen to me while I've been gaming and it got me thinking; wtf? The most bizarre thing was during a little sesh over at my mate's house. I was pulling minis out of the smashed up container I jokingly refer to as "a box" and, having taken out all my Inq retinue models, I pulled out the last servitor with a heavy bolter and plonked him down. One of my mates looks at me with murder in his eyes.
"Is that not a bit inappropriate?" he says. What, the Rhino? No I need it for-
"No, that." What?!
"THAT!" He says angrily, picking up Sammy the Servitor and thrusting it into my face. Erm, not really, I'm allowed 2 heavy bolter servitors in an Inquisitor's retinue.
"I'm not talking about that. He's black." Brown actually, but yeah, so what?
"Dark skinned servitor?.... do you not think that's offensive?" Erm, no? Why is it?
"Black servitor... slaves? Are you that stupid? If you took that to a club and anyone saw it they'd be mortified." I sincerely hope they wouldn't, it took me ages to paint it .
After this he goes into a long tirade about race relations, likening poor Sammy's non-Bolter arm and what remained of his face to the works of Hitler, berating my lack of empathy or common sense. I pointed out that painting Sammy's skin brown wasn't a snide way of airing my views on the roles people of African descent should play in our society or some sort of sick joke; I just find dark skin easier to paint than light, and I find it looks better as a result. See?, I said, pulling out the Grey Knight Grand Master, melta-gun IST and Warp-Seer I'd also painted dark-skinned to show him, comparing it to the pasty Inquisitor who was my first atempt at light skin. He agreed and shut up pretty quickly, and we all had a good laugh at him for being such a pube
well mine is went against a little kid who was desperate to play a game with his ultramarines. So i went, 'yeah, ill play you in a 500pt game'.
I used thousand sons at that time. I went on to put my minis on the table (which wasnt much) - 2 squad of thousand sons with 2 bolt of change and 1 chosen of ahriman.
He, on the other hand had - a tooled up HQ retinue (commander, chaplin, librarium, champion etcetc, the works), 2 squad of 10 marines with 1 missile launcher in each.
so i went 'WTF!!!, that aint no 500pt army!!!, the HQ alone is 500pts'. So he told me he left his list at home (how convenient( ).
So i went to play him (as if i did win, ill be rubbing it in his face). But throughout the game his tooled up HQ just 'miraculously' had more wargear than i realised. I just had enough of all that sh*t hes been throwing at me when his HQ went into cc with me. I had a chosen of ahriman with me, so i teleported out of combat after a round of cc. He replied with 'you cant do that, thats impossible' 'well i just did...' Then he starts to moan about what the rules of the chosen was. I showed him the chapter approved in the WD and i said i can use it in battles. Then he told me that my army was over 500pts (since the chosen took up basically 100pts in my army). THAT WAS REALLY WHEN I BLEW MY TOP.
The stupid kid actually told me i was over 500pts with 17 minis, but the kid with the tooled up HQ and 2 squads of marines is lower than 500pt???. I promptly showed him the list, and said i wasnt going to play him anymore with that attitude. Then when im packing my minis, he rubs it in my face by telling everyone he saw that he beat a kid older than him. that F*ckin a$$hole.

I once played a 2000pt battle against my brother he was space marines I was eldar and he failed every single armour save he had to make... literally. Doesn't sound that wierd on the face of it but think of the odds of that actually happening........

It's been a minute.
I have had a lot of those.
I was with a friend in a GW store and we were about to play a game, so we were taking the minis out of our bags which happened to have gray foam trays. This kid walks up and says "wow, bleached foam". We did not understand what he meant and asked him to clarify and he said "you know, normal foam trays are red so you guys bleached it to make it gray". Anyway, we proceeded to mock him and gave the kid the nickname "foam professor" which also stuck.
I also have some non-PC models. One which I use is the acolyte to my inquisitor, based on the kasrkin sergeant model. Inspired by South Park and since his job is to be there to take a wound instead of the inquisitor I painted him black (operation human shield). Nobody has complained though, probably because I do not live in the US and people here still have a sense of humor left.
Once I played a game against the aforementioned foam professor who is also apparently a 40k junkie. The kid had been in the shop all day one day, veterans' night was about to begin and the guys who worked in the store wanted to get rid of the kid who kept saying "just one more game please, just one more game please". I agreed to play him a 400pt game so he would leave. My army barely reached 400pts in the first place (10 DE warriors and 10 wyches in a raider). The kid proceeded to pull out his 400 points which were marines and included an 8 strong ... razorback squad, some terminators, 2 tactical squads and a captain with indiscriminate wargear (which basically changed every round). I got the wyches into cc with one tactical squad and the captain. I killed off the tactical squad and put some normal wounds on the captain, who apparently had artificer armor, after the kid rolled a couple of 2s. In the next round I put a couple of wounds with an agoniser on the captain, whose armor changed to "I meant he has terminator armor with inv. saves". Apparently he also had an iron halo. And a force sword, which could "instakill" my 1 wound models without their inv. save. And a powerfist. And bionics.
The kid did not get his required 40k fix in the end so he played against my friend who wiped him out and then the kid pulled the "can I get some reinforcements please?" card. My friend who barely used 300 points refused so the kid started the "oh come on it's not fair, I want reinforcements, please please please" until the employees kicked him out of the store.
Finally the most bizarre happenings have been against adults, unfortunately. This guy I played against one, right after deployment, came over to my side of the board with an open measuring tape and started measuring 12'' from the edge and was complaining loudly because a couple of models were a few milimeters over the line. This other time someone wanted to deep strike obliterators, so he took out a measuring tape, measured 13'' from my closest unit and placed the model there. I was too stunned to even comment on the pre-measuring. Against the same person my wyches got the 12'' assault combat drug, so I charged one of his units and he demanded I roll dangerous terrain checks, because apparently "all forms of movement boosting require it". Apparently his chaos lord with chosen asp. champion retinue, all with d. speed were immune to this test, "because it is not a combat drug!!!".
Last bizarre moment happened to my mate in Fantasy, he was about to charge his saurus warriors into a unit of skeletons, and the guy told him "they are too far, you are measuring from the tray and you should be measuring from the unit". Now the deployment was done measuring from the tray, movement (by both sides) was done from the tray, and previous assaults were done from the tray... but previous assaults did not include the army's necromancer. Anyway the bizarre thing was that the guy took out his measuring tape and said "look" and tried to illustrate that the regiment was out of range. It wasn't, it was actually an inch inside (from the unit, not the tray ), so the guy put his fingers on the measuring tape to hold it rigid and used it to push the saurus regiment back a couple of inches. I mean, what do you say to that?
Well this happened when i watched a battle, of two players down at Battle Bunker.
A guy happens to have this really minature dog, It is a real dog but its really SMALL >.> Its about the size of a land raider haha or less. They were battling then all the sudden... it pisses on the gaming table.. haha
I once played a game against some young chavs at my local club. I was using my Space Wolves & they were using Orks & Space Marines. They were doing stupid stuff like charging my dreadnought without powerfists, meltabombs ect. They even deployed some Assault Marines on top of this tower the club has, but the tower was too high & thus the unit couldn't get down or shoot anything for the rest of the game.
It also turns out these chavs were very racist, & the rest of their army spent the game trying to kill one of my black marines in a Grey Hunter squad - I just took off all the models around him & they carried on trying to get him.
Safe as Clarts.
Well, this isn't WHFB or 40K related, but...
One time, we were setting up to play Hero Quest (remember that game, by Milton Bradley). My brother was going to play Zargon, and my friend Dave and I were to play the heroes. Since Dave had never played before, we were explaining the rules. We got to something about magic, and I whipped up the wizard model to show Dave, except that the model slipped out of my fingers, flew across the room and hit the switch on a plugged in vaccuum cleaner, turning it on. Since the vaccuum had assisted forward roll, it commenced to move forward and suck up all the dice that were laying on the floor next to the board.
We spent the next 20 minutes taking the vacuum apart and finding the dice amongst the dirt and dust that was in the bag.
It was pretty funny.
