I was thinking about this and wanted to hear your simmliar expereinces. today, someone told me that orks were completley useless because they had a 6+ armor save (the kid had an illegal BA army without a codex). Someone else told me that BTs were for 'Hardcore shootibg' despite the fact I had a BP and CC toting army of em. But what do you guys think and has anything simmilar happened to you

Harbinger IS a troop caster. Her high CMD and the vast majority of her spells and abilities affect and support Warriors, not Jacks.

Just having high Focus does NOT make a Caster a Jack Caster.

I thought the Romans invented nipple armor.

"If you really want to know what it was like, to fight in the air in the great War, then go up to someone you have never met and who has never done you the slightest harm and pour a two-gallon tin of petrol over them. Then apply a match, and when they are nicely ablaze, push them from a fifteenth-floor window after first perhaps shooting them a few times in the back with a revolver. And be aware as you are doing these things that ten seconds later someone else will quite probably do them to you. This will exactly reproduce... the substance of First World War aerial combat and will cost your country nothing. It will also avoid the necessity of ten million other people to die in order for you to enjoy it."

My point was that these sorts of attitudes are pretty common in any place that game nerds gather be it the lgs, internet forum, whatever.

Go read the battlereports section, or army tactics, etc. Theoryhammer and netdecking is a sad part of this hobby, and you will encounetr lots of peopel that will try to convince you that everything but what they play sucks, or that "codex/unit/build x" is worthless etc.

In the end, who cares? If you like it play it...

Pretty much this.

I turn up and place 4th/5th with my Eldar at my local tournaments (only 600pts, but half of the armies are usually IG and we're all limited by a different FoC (the UK School League FoC IIRC - 1-2 HQs, 2-6 Troops, 0-1 Elites, 0-1 Fast Attack/Heavy Support and no special HQs) so it takes the kick out of most armies except IG, who tend to excel) and when someone meets the Energy Field rule or Holofields, the usual reaction is one of disbelief, followed by saying how nasty Eldar are. Runes of Warding also provoke the same reaction in users of Psykers. The more experienced players are fine with it, it just seems to be anyone who hasn't faced Eldar before or newer/younger players.

I've also had people say that Stealth Suits>Crisis Suits, that Fire Warriors are overpowered because they have 30" range and Strength 5 guns, that Burst Cannons are simply crap, that Stealth Suits need Fusion Blasters, that Pathfinders need Rail Rifles, that Railguns are overpowered, and that Crisis Suits are overpowered.

Nobody complains about my CSM though, which I am quite thankful for; if anyone did complain about my Lash-less, Plague Marine-less, Obliterator-less CSM, I would be forced to dreadsock them to death.

Mandorallen turned back toward the insolently sneering baron. 'My Lord,' The great knight said distantly, 'I find thy face apelike and thy form misshapen. Thy beard, moreover, is an offence against decency, resembling more closely the scabrous fur which doth decorate the hinder portion of a mongrel dog than a proper adornment for a human face. Is it possibly that thy mother, seized by some wild lechery, did dally at some time past with a randy goat?' - Mimbrate Knight Protector Mandorallen.

I proceeded to table him

then i got told that the Daemons are useless, he had tau, tabled him

then i got told the vindicare is useless, took out his land raider full of term on the first turn.

then i got told tau is the easiest army to beat, tabled his Orks

then i told a IG player they were cannon fodder for my Tau, and i got tabled.
