    If on entering the Dark Eldar arena in Soul Reaver, your archmilitant loudly declares 'TEST YOUR MIGHT!" and then successfully impresses the wych cult to the degree they offer to induct her.
     
    If during the Soul Reaver, you had no issues with the Space Marine overshadowing your party even though he was present the whole time.
     
    If you think that Terminator Armor is formal wear...
     
    If you have ever destroyed a planet accidentally...
     
    If the players have ever broken into song when the missionary is revealed to have been killed and eaten...

    If that's the truth, they'd have issues with my last campaign, the players dubbed it 'Do Techpreists Dream Electric Sheep?'

    If you have a maneuver that involves the words 'chimera' 'titan' and 'fast ball special' you may be playing OW as the Armageddon Steel Legion. 
    If you have ever been surprised to lean that other regiments have never seen an ork before, you may be playing OW as the Armageddon Steel Legion.

    When the party asks
    'How many nukes do we have in storage?  We want to leave a 'Best' quality one behind after we rob the Faceless Lord.  Might take him a day or two to figure out that stuff is missing.'
    'Is it heresy to add Wyches to my harem?'
    'Does the admech have a 'bridge bunny' cult of explorators we can recruit?'
    'So, in other words, the warlord titan is started by playing the theme to Gigantor?'

    Isn't that a redundancy? I thought all bagpipes counted as sonic power weapons?

    Yes, Captain, but what you don't know is; while you've been closing with us, and gloating about how you'll board us, I've had my men reloading our torpedo tubes...

    When you have several such ships and are not sure which one you left your stuff on.
     
    When your magos biologis starts a genetic engineering program for your harem. 
     
    When you have enough juvenat drugs to stay young long enough to find out if you got your money's worth.
     
    If you have pict casters on your helmets so the player left behind on the ship knows just how lucky he is.

    BaronIveagh got a reaction from InquistiorCalinx in People's opinion of the Dark Eldar career paths and the general playability of Dark Eldar   
    DE Wych proved interesting as the players decided that she would take part in the regular pit fighting and blood sports aboard the vessel to get her pain tokens.  Avoided the issue with Morale loss because anyone could leap into the pit and fight her, and many invariably did.  Even unarmed, a dark eldar can inflict much pain without actually killing anyone.

    -Dark Eldar are YOUR sex slaves.
     
    -Orbital Bombardment covers a multitude of sins.
     
    -The Rogue Trader is thrilled to find a source of juvenat drugs, to ensure that his harem will remain young and beautiful for as long as the campeign lasts.
     
    -Exploring strange new worlds begins with Drop Pods filled with elite armsmen and storm troopers followed by valkyries and heavier weapons.
     
    -Being attacked by pirates is a chance to get a new ship and test out your tech preists latest murder servitors.
     
    -You wear power armor so you can carry all your weapons.

    Our magos biologis liked to frankenfran herself when she got bored.  The only thing that was relatively consistent was that she kept her torso and head relatively the same.  One day, she managed to severely botch a medicae roll while altering her own dna.  Deciding she had inflicted herself with a genetic condition, I leafed through various potentially embarrassing but non-lethal conditions that could effect someone who was, for all intents and purposes just a torso, but also not be immediately obvious.
     
    Flash forward several sessions and the magos and the wych elf are competing again.  The two had been back and forth for a while until the wych made a comment about having 'better guns' than the magos. 
     
    At which point the magos removes her robes, revealing what gigantomastia and the finest underwire support the Lathes could build had wrought, declaring 'Guns?  Hell, I call them macrocannons!'

    When, on your daughters wedding, an allied rogue trader asks you to deal with a son of a malfian noble house who assaulted his own daughter. You bring trade across the entire malfian subsector to a halt, and then you summon the planetary governor of malfi to make him an offer he can't refuse.
