Default Ever had some kid walk into a GW and destroy your models?

On a dark cold wet day... a little family walked into a GW and reeked havoc. My broadside fell 170 scale feet to the floor and was smashed into little bitty pieces.

tell me this just just happen to me. Please....
Tell me about your 'kid' or 'careless person' damage.

oh, my local store has had problems with "mageknight" kids coming in and playing with older players warhammer models. hence instead of the kids leaving, the older players left and most play in my basement now.

GW Wars II: Attack of the Plebs.
It happens, you get all the veteran players having fun, then a whole lot of kiddies get into the game, start playing, yelling, spilling drinks breaking models etc, and before you know it, the average height for the club is about 4'9".

Problem is, Episode V, the Veterans Strike Back just isn't allowed.

No kids dare touch my models. Infact, they don't dare even come within 10 feet of me.

Thank the Emperor.

Indeed. Can you beleive that I almost got arrested for literally throwing a kid out the door after smashing two of my Saim Hann Vypers?

Well that's your problem right there. If you were a real man, and you played dark eldar they wouldn't mess with your figures :P

What units? If they are firewarriors I wouldn't mind, but if that happened to 3 suits I would probably have to kill someone. Also, how old are they? They have to be children to do something like that, even my 5 year old nephew knows better than to touch my "dolls".

My store is pretty good. Mainly because we ahve so many gamers and so few tables. A few times that there has been accidental damage has been a result of people wearing loose jackets or shirts with baggy sleeves and raiders/lanspeeders/broadsides being to close to the edge. Person reaches out to move a unit, brings thier arm back, hooks said model....*crash*.

Needless to say the store winds up with piles of coats in the corners and everyone wears short sleaves if they can manage it.

little kids have been a rare problem. Mainly because so few tables and so many vets that any kid is hard pressed to get near the tables and then they are watches like a hawk by at least three vets at all times. The few problems have usually bene variations on the loose sleeves and a inquisitive nature with a tendancy to point.

kid: Whats that one? *points to middle of table.*
Vet: firewarriors.
Kid: and those? *points to another unit, swinging arm just enough to brush boradside off table*
CRASH
