If they're not too rude, try to help them. Y'know, like "here's the shooting phase. Do you want to shoot with this squad?"

Lets get back on topic here please.

Im a fairly slow player at times myself. I don't think theres any real way you can make people play faster.
I just let them play on, reminding them of the time if they are getting really slow.

TBH I think the speed comes when one gets used to the rules and such, at least thats what happens to me, Im not as slow starting as I used to be.

Well aren't we all in the fast lane today eh?

Ah well...

I have to agree, really slow players can be a pain in the rear end.
I can't say that I myself am that a quick player.
A good round in my opinion should take between 10-15 minutes for each side.
Some players do have a habit of using 20-30 minutes per turn... then they are just pulling out time/actually thinking a lot of what to do or just pretending to be good.

Just try mentioning the opponents time consuming to him, he's gotta understand how boring it is to what for the other person to finish his round.

But above all..... don't come here and complain about others time usage when you maybe use a huge amount of time yourself.

i wouldn't try to play anyone under 13 because being near them embarasses me, most of the kids in GW think "oh wow, neat!" then they get their mom to buy them a $300 tomb kings set and when they get it home they realize "uh oh MOMMMMMMMMM i have to put these together and glue them and paint them!"

Poke them! :)
I like your way of thinking (Exactly wat i was gonna put :p)

What you could do is impose a time limit per turn. This should obviously be sensible and should vary for each army (Example an all infantry empire army without movement tays is gonna take longer than a compleatly cavalry High elf army)

Say once the time is up you have to finish. If there on the very last thing u might aswell let them do it, and if the other person has been slowing them down award extra time

lol i know this was a little complicated and im sorry :rolleyes:

or you could just use the time to examine what your opponent is and try to come up with a plan to counteract his moves and get the upper hand.


failing that just poke them with the red stick i know i do.

Depends where I am battling. If in a tourny, I analize their moves and try and work out advantages and disadvantages of strategies to counter them. Otherwise, I'll probably read something or help them do what they need to do.

Definitly I agree that id depends on the army yo are using and the experiance of the player. I am a slow player myself and one with shakey hands that tend to tip terrain and models over which slows me down more.

One way to hurry people up would be to play with a time limit per move.

Another would be to point a gun at them and shout "get a move on or i'll blow your (expletive removed) brains out.

Or you could just take a really long time on your turn to show them what its like.
