Occasionally, I like to wander into hobby shops, not to buy anything or play any games, but just to mingle about and see how much trolling I can get done.

Today, I brought a friend into a Games Workshop. Since he knows nothing about 40k, he became my unwitting accomplice in finding ways to annoy people.

The first target was a game being played using the Assault on Black Reach set. "See, these orks are gonna have a go at those smurfs over there. They have guns that shoot rocket exploding bullets, laser cannons, and walking tanks. But more importantly, papa smurf over there is gonna run up and hit them with his sword. That's how we get things done in the future."

Seeing little potential here, we headed further back into the store, where two marine armies were in the middle of a battle.

"And this right here is an act of heresy. I don't think the emprah's going to be happy about all this." At this point, my buddy spots a land raider which had made its way quite near some enemies, and decided to offer his tactical advice:
"Why don't you just run those guys over with the tank?"
"Because that guy with the big oven mitt will punch it and it'll explode."
"Really? But it isn't even his turn."
"Yeah, he's not a very good sport."

Later, he wanted to know why the space marines were fighting against each other. One player had ultramarines, and the other had unpainted marines he was calling dark angels.

"You see, there's been a major dispute over who gets to control the imperial paint reserves on this here planet 'table four'. The smurfs hold all the supply, and by the orders of their great leader Matt Ward, they're forcing everything to be blue because he's been playing Earthbound lately. But the Angels want to be green because they think orks are really cool. Clearly, fratricide is the only answer."

Then he noticed that there was a predator on the other side of the table. It was in a patch of cover, surrounded by some trees. One of the trees had been displaced by the tank. The players had placed the tree on top of it.

"What's that tree doing on top of the tank?"
"It's probably possessed by wood elves."
"There's elves in this?"
"There's always elves."
"What do elves do in space?"
"They trick space marines into fighting each other over paint."

Eh, every night can't be a gold mine. Last time I went into a Games Workshop pretending to know nothing about Warhammer. I immediately sought out the local redshirt, asked lots of innocent questions, and with every answer replied "Oh, that sounds a lot like warcraft/starcraft! Is this like that?" After being corrected several times about which setting came first, I roped the guy into playing a short game, convincing him that he was hooking me in. I kept asking to do things that are against the rules, like shooting into a melee and trying to justify it because "those guys are too dumb to run away anyway, I'm just going to kill them for treason after this is over."

After all of this, I made my phone ring, "checked the time," and hurried out, buying absolutely nothing, having wasted an hour of the man's time.

This one time I went into an icecream store and asked for a vannila waffle cone with a chocolate coating. The woman serving me asked if I wanted peanuts and I said yes. She started to pour peanuts onto my icecream and I couldn't stop laughing. I didn't actually want peanuts. Oh my god, that stupid bitch. She got trolled so hard. SO HARD.

I once brought a 10 year old into a GamesWorkshop after giving him melted chocolate so it was all over his hands and let him run free. Smearing everywhere, and anytime some fat slob got near him, I exploded like a soccer mom all over their pudgy piss stained hands getting near an innocent child.

I walked into my local GW and saw two thirteen year olds having a battle. They were both Space Marines of course. I swaggered over and in my best cool guy voice and complimented them on their little toy dolls. The guy closest to me thanked me for my compliment and asked if I was interested in learning to play. I hastily rejected his offer and kicked a quick retreat out of there.

Yeah, he got burned so bad. Master troll in the house.

That story sounds fake as fuck.

>> No.13212833

So, how fake does fuck sound again, I never really paid attention.

Heres what happened, blow for blow.
I walk into GW, my bag had seven Sisters of Battle, under-coated, all repeats of the one holding a grenade pulling pin with teeth.
I spend a few mins looking at the BL shelves.
I place my bag down in the designated bag corner.
I remove the girls from my bag and a paint brush.
I sit down at the table, minis in front of me, and poke around for the silver paint at the centre of the table.
Spotting the paint in question I grab it and open the lid.
Roaming Blackshirt has a look at what I intend to paint.

"You know you can't paint them here?"
"Those miniatures, they're not Workshop."

I screw the lid back on the paint pot.
Pick up my Sisters of Battle and grab my bag and leave the store.

>> No.13212865

He possibly didn't see precisely what they were, and you could have gone "oh no these are sisters" and he would have gone "oh, alright, sorry about that. Carry on."
Instead you were a jerk. Shame on you.

That story still sounds fake as fuck. The chances of a GW employee not recognizing GW miniatures is very slim. IN that slim chance he didn't you still could have just explained ot him it was sisters of battle instead of walking out the store like your big shit.

Because typical guard fans are the most loud-mouthed fanboys this side of final fantasy. Ever see a thread saying "what would you do to make 40k awesome" thread? Basically the guard fans' idea is to remove everything that's NOT the guard and make the guard more awesome.
Orks player here, once I bought a lemon russ and called it "DA LEMON!" after converting it. There was so much rage from the guard player that I fought that he directed all firepower on it to destroy it as fast as possible, ignoring the KFF mek in a battlewagon with a deff rolla RIGHT BESIDE IT for the three turns it lived.
Took out quite a bit of guardsmen before it went kabloom, at which point I rammed the fuck out of his russ with my BW and wrecked it. Lots of shoota boyz were on that thing, shit was so cash. I went on to win it with trukk-based shoota boyz and a few choppy 13-wound power klaws.
I bought a squad of guardsmen, and to rub it in his face, put a bunch of bodies on pikes on my vehicles.
