Girls at the gaming table. Yes, its rare...

It is rare...but it does happen! Not all of us are there to hang out with boyfreinds or anything like that. Theres alot of awkwardness that goes when a gal decides to play table top war games.

Heres the order of reactions:
1-Whoa!!! A girl!!!
2-Wheres her boy freind?!
3-Wait- no boyfreind, awww shit, one of the card game kids moms!!
4-OMG shes got a miniatures case!! She must just paint....
5-Ok, ok, I must now become more manly in my current game and beat this guy loudly!
6-Now Im going to go teach her how to play!!
7-She just corrected me on rules before we even deployed, jeeze, what a snooty bitch...
8-Damn she kicked my ass. Shes mean. I bet she eats puppies and kittens during the full moon.
9-Ok, I just imagined all that...Im going to just stare at her boobs and look awway before she sees me....
10- Why do I have to be playing a game with Stinky? His hygeine is worse than Nurgles and its like a chick repelling forcefield (this only applies to gamers that shower regularly....)

Yes- thats often what it feels like when a girl walks into a gaming store that she may not be well known at. Odd stares, awkward behavior and so on.

So, next time you see some girl walk in the gameshop, and shes not there by accident- keep in mind that foremost- it means shes a geek too! She knows why shes there, she knows theres likely a room full of socially impaired guys that can only communnicate coherently by rolling dice. Dont let the boobs and makeup make you forget that shes a gamer too!

Ironback Spitter gone WILD!! Run away!

I haven't posted anything useful for a while- so I might as well post something retarded. Disclaimer-contains footage of natural acts with unnatural objects some people may find distrubing, or disturbingly appealing....

This is the Ironback Spitter, a Minion Warbeast from Hordes. Its sort of silly/cute in an angry mutant ninja turtle sort of way.

This- is a video of an Ironback Spitter in action. Watch out for the Spit Blast, his Ornery Animus is really working for him vs his low DEF oppponent...

Should you ever witness this act on your gaming table, first- get your damn shoes off the table- no one is so hard up for terrain they should be using their dirty shoes!! Second- make sure its your pet Ironback, and not some durty gamer grunting out his luv for some extreme sculpt miniature. And lastly, make sure to record it and post it on youtube so people can make retarded blog posts about it!
