Default Losing a deamon prince to stupidity

I was playing a tourney match at 1500 points and i was facing a necron army.
I nearly phased him out and tought to myself, i`ll assault him in terrain next turn with my DP, with a last wound at least i can phase him out soon. fair and well.
next turn arrives and i use my winged prince to move 4` in terrain, last wound on and guess what, a 1 for dangerous terrain test (wings), take my save, failed and puff, DP gone!
It was hilarious to see a slaneeshi prince die like that. i guess slaaneshi lords turned him in $*x toy there and then.
You got stories like this? post them here

Sounds funny. But you made a mistake!!
Daemon princes are monstrous creatures, and hence (If I'm correct) don't need to make a dangerous terrain check when landing in terrain as they are simply too big!

One of my (biggest) mistakes (Fighting Black Templars):

Squad of space marines in cover. Daemon prince charges in. I thought 'too easy' and waited for my opponent to attack. (I10 for being in cover) He promptly slew my prince...

I lost the game. (had a good laugh when his close combat squad of 30 guys was stopped by my trusty obliterator for three turns!)

They do if they have wings, that rules gone now, and it was onlt for greater daemons too..

I was going to say he'd get a re roll as he's an independant character.. but they're not any more are they?

Default Re: Losing a deamon prince to stupidity

My Daemon Princes always die due to the fact that I am overconfident in their abilities, rather than stupidity. I expected to much from them, and they die due to the fact that I have overestimated their abilities.

When I expect them to kill a vehicle within seconds and use the vehicle as cover, the vehicle is just shaken and and moves away only to be shot to pieces. When I charged into a squad of Noise Marines expecting them to be slaughtered and enable me to consolidate into another two squads of Noise Marines, they killed the Daemon Prince at the same time as they are eliminated.

So yeah, my point being that I have overestimated the Daemon Prince.
