Do any of you guys get the same  problems from other players calling WEs a very derogative term? A more feminine army? Cause I am about to punch someone in the face as it is getting annoying.

Most of the guys in my campaign give me a fair amount of hack about my elves - pansies, fairies, tree-huggers, dirt-worshippers... the list goes on (and gets a good deal more insulting), but why get upset over it? I just have fun with it.
In my old blood bowl league, I played a team of pro elves with a less-than-complimentary name. It was great fun for the other league members to jibe and joke about it... until my pansies went on to win the end-of-season tournament three times.
In the end, all of their jokes and mockery should result in immeasurable embarrassment for them when the army they mock beats them into the dirt.

lol you get nowhere near as much of the 'girly' stuff as 40k eldar trust me.

I always see these kind of elf vs everyone else fights as entertaining. David keeps beating Kuffy at the verbal duelling of elf vs dwarf so thats a win for the elves at least.
No need to punch someone though. Learn some good comebacks instead. :yes:

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
I suppose, just glad to know I am not in the boat alone. It's just annoying. I am just going to ignore the comments from now on.

I don't get too much grief, but there is a little bit. We have one guy, though, who could earn money as a professional heckler, and anyone's army is fair game to him. I tell you no lie, he can maintain the ferocity of his barbs for the entire duration of a 2000 point battle. Sometimes if I'm a bit hungover from the night before, it's all I can do not to throw a Treeman at him.
But what really gets everyone going is if someone has a lousy army. One guy made a Dogs of War army and one something like 1 out of 12 games with it. He still hasn't lived that down, nor has he fielded that army again.
oh man...i get ragged on allllll the time for playing wood elfs. The prime target for me would be the wardancers, they like to make fun of the fact that their abunch of dudes running around pretty much naked. I also get grief because I have a fairly good record with my wood elves and the other players like to bash and say that the wood elf list is just uncontrollably strong(watch out everyone, 5+ save and no ranks!!). I usually just turn the other cheek, or if they play Bretonnia i tell them that their army book is just a picture book(i swear...look at the first like 20 pages and you'll think the same). But if they really are bugging me ill just lay the beat down on them.
I don't really have the problem. Its mostly who I am and my personality. I have thick skin so I can take a lot of crap. Also, I usually have a quick remark about the person actually telling the jokes. It usually shuts them up.
Don't let people get to you! It's just a game...I hate losing but there's a lot more to life then WHFB. I get harassed all of the time for playing Wood Elves and I take it as a compliment b/c honestly a majority of people are scared of a Wood Elves army. They are very competetive and can throw all sorts of things at you ie. GREAT shooting, awesome close combat units, and we can damage you with terrain...I LOVE IT. And the combos that the army can throw out there are amazing I love these little guys. All in all just don't get bothered when people talk down your army. The same thing has happened with every 40K Army I have ever owned (Sisters, Tau, Eldar, IG). People are just jealous!
If anybody disagrees with me Chuck Norris will roundhouse kick you in the face.....not really. But wouldn't it be cool?
