Default Why do the gods of the dice love SM

Last night i played a 500pt game against my mate - Tau (me) v SM (Him)

during the whole game he never failed a single armour save or moral/leadership test - not once.

i lost (surprise surprise) and the only kills i got were from low AP weapons (PR Rail etc)

24 FW fire at 1 squad of marines and no kills every turn

have you ever seen anything like it?

Worst I've heard of (not saw) was an associate of mine charging 72 firewarriors from his bunkers and shooting 144 shots at a squad of 5 termies in the middle, a propserous 72 wounds and only one term casualty after the saves were tossed.

Worst I've had is 8 Fire Warrior shots at kroot. 1 hits. And he rolls a 1 for the to-wound roll.....

They don't always love SM...my deathwing lost 4 termies in two turns to a set (3, I think?) of ratlings!

In this weeks battle against my old adversary, my brother, I submunitioned a full tactical squad of Iron Hands, ten armor saves, not one failed.

My Gue'vesa'la failed a 25% morale check, but I wasn't worried, because they only lost 3 guys, and the had a good 2 feet to regroup. Nope, they failed 5 consecutive leadership checks with a Gue'vesa'ui, right off the board.

Same game, fish deployed Firewarriors failed a 25% morale check, failed the Ethereal re-roll, and failed a regrouping check, right off the board.

Interestingly enough every vehicle in the game died at some point: three devilfish, two hammerheads (one with a spectacular boom that wounded a shaper, who, ironically enough, was fleeing off the board), one landspeeder, venerable dreadnought, and a las-cheddar-tactular predator.

Weird...

I've had worse.
My shas'O was in a squad of12 fire warriors and they failed a 75% casualty test from a Tactical Squad.
then I failed morale checks 3ft down a city fight board.

last night I hit a single SM with 12 rapid firing FW. 11 hits, 7 wounds, 7 armor saves.

I tell you what SM don't like: plasma rifle! TL plasma rifle on Shas'o killed some 7 SM in a game of 400pts.

Reminds me of when i deepstriked shas'el, and shockingly he landed! He prefers do do fly-bys right off the board. Anyway, he scatters a bit, pounds out his shots at ethereal/ FW squad. 4 shots. i kill one. Return fire knocks off 2 wounds. I wound left. i rapid fire again. 4 shots. kill one. then i charge! what the hell. 4 str5 attacks will hurt! ethereal pokes shas'el with a stick and shas'el fails his last save.....

Killed by a stick! :

Wile E, i agree with you. Everytime i play deathwing, dark angels, space wolves etc. At my local store I always lose, and I mean always. The only time ive ever one was when I had marines on my side and we were versing deathwing(I know, that battle would have no chance whatsoever, ever happening).
