Default Most Ludicrous Thing You've Ever Heard About 40k Units

Has anyone told you an extremely far-fetched thing about what some units could do, or anything else that is stupidly unrealistic

I heard someone say that a single Terminator squad could kill off a whole army of any race. And he meant game-wise, not fluff-wise.* The only army this would be possible with would be Kroot Mercs, and even that wouldn't happen often.

Self-destructing Crisis Suits score pretty high...

Most ridiculous I heard was for Fantasy, and it was that Tomb Kings lords automatically resurrect the turn after they are killed.

Generally, the worst of the stories I hear revolve around Khorne armies.

Even here on the boards, there have been cases, where a "friend of a friend" have had squads of berserkers and bikes who all had invulnerable saves, auto-blood range, feel no pain saves, etc.

Otherwise, it usually involves the number of attacks on Space Marine characters, fake invulnerable save attempts on others, etc.

I think the worse though, generally stem from measuring distances. My absolute pet-peeve are the ones who measure from the front of the model, and then place the model with the base touching from behind, gaining almost an inch. What's worse are the ones who just measure, remove their tape, then eye ball the 6 to 12 inches that they are going to attempt to place their models in, regardless of terrain, and without rolling difficult terrain.

Seriously, I get sick of telling people "Hey, there's difficult terrain there... see the crate, the one I just rolled difficult terrain for?"

I could probably go on, and on, and on... but I'll spare it as my blood pressure doesn't need to top the charts this evening

Cheers!

Thats hard cover, not difficult terrain.

I think mine was "Hey, this wulfen has a bolt pistol, he must be able to shoot" or possibly "ok, theres a gap of less then a to scale inch, but he could still make the shot"

"guardsmen cant shoot for sh*t"
*me kills 6 marines with 10 lasguns NOT rapid fire*

or "that pebble could save this ork from 2 lascannons"

or "that rhino can take 3 meltagun shots to it's rear armour and survive"
*BOOM*
