I am starting to belive there are some kinds of critical luck. Like for example making the last 6+ invulenrable save on the devil flyrnat with warpfield hive to allow it to kill more marines. And getting the reseve rolls at the right time.
Then there is like luck on the large scale with getting a ton of hits and wounds and making a ton of saves. Some roles are mnore important than others. Your luck will turn around evetaully. The sad thing is my opponent sitll ahd good luck after I jsut bought 5 new dice. Yet that did allow me to finaly pass a morale check.

I on the other hand played black reach today.
I was hit by 30 attacks and didn't lose a guy (i was space marines).

On the othr side my opponent destroyed my dreadnought in his first shot with the deathkopta.

I had a Heroic Vetran Sarge and his buddy (carrying a meltagun) kill a warhound by rolling 6 sixes in a row, 6 to hit, double sixes to penetrate, then two more sixes on the damage chart (warhound had one structure point removed and no void sheilds.) I then procceded much to my opponents disboleaf to roll a six for the eplosion, killing four landraiders, and almost every other thing within 20". My HVS was the only guy to survive (ingnores first instant death). I took that dice and worshipped it.

Typhoon that was awesome. Sometimes if there is a break in the game the luck of the players get dramatically different. I have had tau shas'el get shoot by 3 meltaguns from chaos havocs and all three missed. Then I got charged and was wining the combat so a gundrone came in and helped then.

How about this? I've considered working up a house rule to reduce the effect of dice somewhat. Basically, count up how many dice are being rolled and apply statistics, only rolling remainders. This won't help things like scatter, mishap, vehicle damage and such, but if you have 15 kroot charging an opponent with the same weapon skill (45 rolls, hit on 4+), declare 22 hits, 22 misses, and roll 1 die. Same with wounds and saves: those 22 hits against T3 targets become 14 with 1 roll, and the 4+ saves make 7 casualties. Maybe my dice would get the message if I made them watch how the game can proceed without them!

Or I could go for plan B and just sacrifice a virgin. I wonder if you can get any effect by deflowering a couple of them instead.

How much blood, anyway? All this talk about virgins and blood sacrifice, seems rather wasteful to spill it all when you can make a little cut and still have a virgin to play with.

But I'm not one to question the gods I guess.
