Default A Falcon question

Ok, so I played against one of my friends who plays eldar(I play SMs). He fielded 2 falcon grav tanks.

this normally would have been ok but this guy gave it every possible upgrade that he could have. It was either he doesnt know the rules, or he is the ultimate powergamer

this tanks armor is i think 12,12,10. usually it would have been gunned down in the first few turns. But he had a strange rule that when I shot at it I had to roll twice on the glancing/penetrating hit chart and pick the lowest, THEN he got to roll a die and if it waws a 4 or higher nothing happened. He could also fmove,fire,move in the same turn. he also had some strange rule that I could never get a penetrating hit, only glances.

somethings wrong when a entire devistator squad and a dreadnought shoot every possible weapon at it, penetrate every time.........and nothing happens at all

thats just stupid, either its just me or does this sound a little retarded?
please tell me what went wrong here

There is an upgrade called Holofields which means your opponent must roll extra dice, and you can pick which result you apply (normally the lowest).

However, I have no knowledge of a "ignores on 4+" upgrade. Methinks that was cheating.

A rule you should apply to everyone: If they can't prove a rule in the Codex, it doesn't exist (okay, so it doesn't work with Harlequins, as the rules I use are totally unofficial, but still...)

Hopefully rezzy sent you that message but just in case he didn't, those rules do exist, but the ignoring things on a 4+ is a little bit different than simply ignoring all results on a 4+.

I'm assuming he uses the holofeild spirit stones combo, which makes falcons very powerful and resilient

@crazedmongoose2003.
I suggest you remove those rules. Because if you don't then a mod will. That's why rezzy said he'll PM him about it. Remember, you can't post rules like that
