Tales from the Soapbox: I've had it!
I am sick and tired of dealing with the douches that have been coming in the shop to play for the last three weeks. First off there is not an official points value for games of 40k. If you enjoy gimping yourself playing 1500 point games by all means do so. But keep your darned opinion to yourself when I am playing a game against my buddy. Who the hell do you think you are to tell me how to have fun in my games? If you don't like my unit choices keep it to your darned self, I don't care that Possessed Marines are not considered good. They work for me, so STHU! Oh, yeah hows your ego since my sub-par footsloggin' Blood Claws and Sky Claws kicked your teeth in?
I don't understand what goes through the minds of these guys. How the hell do these misanthropes function in the real world? How the heck did these guys procreate, I don't get it they have zero social skills. By the way you are poor roll models for you sons guys, you behavior is reprehensible.
I really hope these guys crawl back under the rock from whence they came very soon. Because if they don't I will not be playing 40k at the shop or regularly any more. As the guys in the my normal group have real life issues that have been keeping us from gaming. Let me take this opportunity to send out a prayer for my two friends who are deployed in Afghanistan. Keep you heads down boyos and make it home safe and intact.
Back to the rant, I have been neglecting my Flames of War buddies because I have been having so much fun with 40k for the last 9 months. In fact it was douches like these guys that pushed me and the rest of the guys to FOW in the first place. There is 99% less douche-baggery with the ex-40k guys who play FOW because it is a much tighter game system.
Right now my schedule only gives me time to focus and game one system right now. So if these guys persist in ruining both nights I can make it down, 40K will go on the back burner for a while and FOW will take it's place.
Now this won't kill my 40K painting, but it will slow it down. The sad thing is I am in a painting mood, but if I do head back to FOW I need to update my army for 9 months of sporadic gaming and neglecting my purchases.
Thanks for taking the time to read my rant, I'll keep you guys updated.
