Last Friday we bought some Space marines for one guy who is starting 40k and monday he brought them to shcool to show us he assembled them. It wasn't very well done, he only clipped them out and assembled them, not removing any plastic bits still on them, in short they were horrible. I didn,t say anything but "you could take those out with an exacto" so he agreed and said he was going to do it that night. So afterwards me and another guy playing 40k decided we were gonna bring our models tomoro, we did. I brought:
-a Necron Warrior
-a Immortal converted form Necron Warriors
-a Normal Necron lord (metal ones with Warscyth)
-a Destroyer Lord
-and a Necron lord with SOL (Scratch built out of spare parts)
Then that guy and another guy that plays 40k came and starting commenting about how my conversions are crappy and that "he sucks really bad at painting, he didn't even drybrush" and I just took my models put them back in my box and left. The guy had tyranids that we never saw and the other guy has imperial guards that are primered and that have "good" conversions where you can clearly see the legs are too small for the torso, I tought he was showing me squats*.
Anyway, I'll try to get pics of my models this week end so you guys can help me improve my painting skills, I've never ahd that free GW paint lesson and these are my first models, I find them beauitiful but the others seem to dislike them.
They are the only 40k players aronud here...
*I may have pissed off this guy because he keeps going "IG R DA RoXxOrZ DeY OwN NeCrOnZ BaD!!!11ONE" like one day he came he's like: pick any necron elite choice and i bet on equal numbers Storm Troopers will own them, so I said: immortals, I did the math and about 95% of the time 10 on 10, immortals can kill all 10 ST without losing a man. He got pissed, told me I sucked at math and I'd probally lose, I did the math with him that even on equal points (10 immortals and 28 ST) the immortals win. He said: well not if I roll well enough, so I said: well if I roll well enough I can pass all my armour saves and never die, he was like: what you cheat with rigged dice. Then after he was like: well ST win cause they have support of the whole IG army so your immortals would die first thing, So I said: well I can have support too. So he was like: I can bring a Baneblade or a titan, so I was like: I can bring a pylon. He frowned and said: do you have a pylon? , I said: do you have a BB or a titan. So now he keeps gonig I know how to beat you, a 6 point battle I nring a guardsmen and you can't bring anything so I win, or he said well your pylon has a 36" minimum range(I told him) so I chanllenge you pylon vs my BB on a 36" table...
He's being a jerk... doing all kinds of stuff like that...
I need painting skills so my better painted army can beat his on the field of battle...
Pshht seriously dont take that crap at least its painted not primered crap , and you dont need better painting skills just better confidence (i think) so anyways show him how hard you can beat him not how well you paint.
Anyways , put up those pics .
And good luck
not entirely sure that this belongs in the painting forum (other than they were being wankers about your painting), but let's take a look...
1) any decent player (or person, for that matter) isn't going to act like these guys. To bash someone else's stuff is pretty pathetic. If they think they are that much better than you, they should be providing advice (when appropriate) and encouragement, not abuse.
2) The IG guy's on crack if he thinks man-for-man ANYTHING the IG fields will beat necrons.
3) If his maths are whacked, and he's a bit of an idiot as well as being a huge wally, I'd say ignore him. Unless there is NO way to play 40k without his being around, simply don't play around him.
If you want painting advice, post a few pix here. There are plenty of excellent painters who'll be more than happy to give you a few pointers to help you along.
Baby, when I'm the voice of reason, we've got problems!~artificerSomeone should stop
Jervis "let's make it easy enough for a 3 year old to play" Johnson
before he turns 40k into checkers~anon
Thanks uhh I can't get pics until I get the digital camera wich is this weekend so until then I'll just try to keep away from those guys...
personally i would have lost my patience a long time ago, body parts would be seperated from the body and sprayed liberally along the walls
moral of the story is - dont play with a mentally inadequate 12 year old (meaning mental age of 6 or less) and keep trying with your painting
one of my regular opponents is a young girl - who has fantastically painted sisters of battle, she attends the club with her father and has always acted witha maturity that belies her age
worst comes to worst, jsut turn the other cheek and ignore them, or bring a chainsaw to the party
your call mate
Hm. That sounds oh so much like our local BA dipper...ofcourse he left after everyone found his awesome 'ch34t1ng 5k1llz!!!11!!' Anyway, just deploy in corners on the 36' bord. That's (a2+b2=c2 Go pythagorean thereom! [Answer=too big of a #, I need my calculator ]
Well, just because they're not very good at painting/converting doesn't automatically discredit their opinions. Them already disliking you is a good hint to get second opinions though. All I can say is don't play with them. If that means don't play, then don't play. Gaming is supposed to be fun, and if you're not having fun gaming with them then don't. Wait till you can drive and look for a gaming club with decent people. Till then, work on making good and good-looking armies so you can impress people and be proud.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: Are you wounded?
Clouseau: No. Fortunately I was saved by the darkness.
Chief Inspector Dreyfus: So what we need is more light.
Dude, just push the guy over, stamp on his Imperial Guard miniatures a few times, spit on the broken pieces and walk off! lol. NO in all seriousness take absolutely no notice of this idiot. He is childishly attention seeking and there will always be an ego maniac in every competitive game (yep even Warhammer lol).
If makes other comments (by the sounds of it he will) just ignore him. Id normally say ‘come out with a degrading witty remark’ insulting his intellectual level but this will only cause future tension and not to mention he will double his efforts to annoy you.
All push comes to shove and it gets too much grab his full miniature case and throw it in front of a on-coming bus while laughing at him frantically trying to pick up the pieces. Ha ha ha ha.
Anyway good luck.
The best way to deal with idiots like that (apart from insults and mindless violence, of course) is to utterly crush their army on the tabetop. Smash them. (Not literally of course, violence against poor defenceless models? Nah.)
"Who RoXxORz now?!?!?"
Do you have a good evil laugh?
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.

at many times in your life people are going to make fun of you to improve their own egos, a real hard lesson can be learned form this: fcuk em.
try to keep your focus on this, whatever other people say: they don't know you, stand up for what you believe in. It's better to take insult and demeaning remarks than to capitulate.
If you agree with those who ridicule you, if you say "mayby your right" they've won.
but i know, it sucks when they gang up on you.
+ even though these are the only guys who play 40K, fcuk it, never play em again, don't let em ruin it for you
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
