...when you're explaining to a friend your flyer based list and they comment about how easily they'll remove all your models from the table on turn one. The look on their face when you tell them how many that is is priceless.

 

...when you listen to the latest ICs podcast (Show of Force: Hammer of the Emperor) and you actively fist bump every time they mention something cool about the Imperial Guard (and boo every time they call it the Astra Militarum.)

 

...when you start playing 30k and immediately jump into the Solar Auxilia because you don't play mutants, sanctioned or otherwise.

So, every time they mention something Guard then? msn-wink.gif

 

You know you're Guard when crushing those who underestimate your troops is half then fun of playing... the other half is playing Guard laugh.png

... when your gaming pals want a 3vs3 500pt battle and suggest... "everyone gets 5 CP because noone will be able to make a detachment" and you turn into a Lord Commissar demanding they stick to the CP rules while hoarding 2 batallions worth of CP.

... when a marine player laughs that your infantry squad is useless and then that squad forces him to make 8 armour saves on his precious snowflake squad. 

 

... when someone blows up your chimera, but you don't care. You have 5 more.

 

... when someone forgets to screen his valuable tanks and you placed entire tempestus scions battalion in single valkyrie squadron.

When you accept this Black Knight as a patron saint, on your Commissar's "advise."

Commissar with four augmetic limbs: "As guardsmen, our duty is not to fight for the God-Emperor, but to die for Him. In the time that it takes us to die, other armies and warlords can come and take our place."

Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

When you make regular use of your heavy weapons teams to hose down your (valhallan) leman Russ tanks. I love "fire in my command!"

... when your "they're just guard" army fires it's flashlights... and there aren't enough dice at the venue.

 

... when your opponent suddenly realises that lasguns, when fired en-mass by the multitudes of the Imperial Guard, work like water erosion... and what can't be eroded by lasguns will be washed away by the armour of the tank companies.

 

... when your army of men/women have waged war in an alien universe and have been victorious... and they are just humans... doing a job.

I got a lot of chuckles from that one until they realized I was only half joking.

You drive your car onto the gaming arena, and attempt to pass it off as a Capitol Imperialis, so you won't have to move all those models far from your vehicle.

You praise Creed that the two soldiers you saved from battleshock with the D3 strat make their charge from outside of LoS to lock a las-pred in close combat saving the damaged Hellhound you're relying on from a messy lascannon enabled death.
 
Just as planned, baby.
