Well, my 3 Vespid have managed to kill a Khorne Lord in close combat...

In an Apocalypse game, my Monolith survived several Railguns, Demolisher Cannons & Vanquisher Cannons, only to be destroyed by an absently fired Krak Missile (back in 4th).

I had two Obliterators, one of them was wounded. I took three wounds from SM scouts, so I smirked haughtily when making armour saves... and rolled three 1s. Unit annihilated!

Or when my two Chaos Terminators with power claws assaulted two mortar teams (12 people)... killing one guardsmen. The rest tore them apart in the same round!

On the other hand, I had a situation when my unit of 6 Raptors were surrounded by an Ogryn squad, a sisters of Battle squad and a Guard squad. Suddenly, another squad entered the picture: two Last Chancers, each carrying a demolition charge. They threw their charges at the Raptors, but one charge landed in the middle of the Ogryn squad (killing all four), and the other killed two Sisters... The Raptors were unscathed, and proceeded to mutilate the Guardsmen.

Back in a 4th ed game of Apocalypse I had a Hammerhead take fire from a pair of Baneblades nearly every turn and suffer no worse than Shaken and Stunned until the last turn, when it lost it's Railgun and a Burst Cannon, but it used the remaining BC to kill a Terminator. Sadly both Baneblades survived the battle, but one of them only had a single structure point remaining and no more than two of it's guns intact.

In a different game I had a single squad of bare-bones Kroot kill a pair of Demon Princes in CC. Granted, most of the Prince's wounds had been pealed off thanks to railgun and plasma rifle fire, but still. After those princes ground all my FWs into a fine powder (friggin' Lash...) that squad of Kroot snatched a draw from the jaws of defeat in that game. My opponent was more irritated that my Railhead tore through his Land Raider like it was made out of paper before it could do anything than he was about the Kroot though.

12 Kroot, 1 being a shaper taking on... A chaos Termy Lord joining 4 Termies, all with Mark of khorn in the old decent Chaos Codex... and winning.... TWICE!!! first time only losing.... 3 KROOT!!!! second time not as impresive... it was with SMurf assistance... all the SMurfs died only causing a wound on the lord and my shaper died... the rest of the kroot wiped out the 3 of the Termies... in the second round of combat lost 5 kroot but killed his last Termie and Lord....

He never takes that set up when playin me now at of fear of a repeat and he unfairly bombards my Kroot with Defiler-power... was an epic laugh!! got a Kroot with a a Chaos Skull chain thing as a totem for the monumentous victories.... NO ONE UNDER ESTIMATE SPACE CHICKENS!!

Another one was using the HH Pie Plate on guants 3 times in a game.... WITHOUT EVEN WOUNDING ANYTHING!!!

In the last tournament I played in I had my Venerable Dreadnought versus a Space Wolf Venerable Dread, we beat on each other for 5 turns, and never scored better than a Glancing 1 -_-

A second time I had a Single Grey knight with a Psycannon get locked in combat with Pedro only to kill him 2 turns later....opponent couldn't hit me =P
“If I were a proper brother-captain, I would know the prayer we are supposed to say. But I think you all know what we have to do. We do not know what our chances of survival are, so we fight as if they were zero. We do not know what we are facing, so we fight as if it was the dark gods themselves. No one will remember us now and we may never be buried beneath Titan, so we will build our own memorial here. The Chapter might lose us and the Imperium might never know we existed, but the Enemy - the Enemy will know. The Enemy will remember." - Acting Brother-Capitan Alric of the Grey Knights.

I was once at a GW big game where I had the honour of watching a banblede's volcano cannon shot scatter from some Tyranids to an even bigger clump of them and kill something like 42 gribblies.

It was amazing to watch, particularly in light of the fact that the Baneblade belonged to a guy on my side and the 'nids were on the other
This is a great community, thanks a million skylight!

A baneblade hitting dead on, with the template right on top of a Zoanthrope. Everything else under the template died, and the zoanthrope didnt take a single wound.
