lol I'm still unclear on the issue of "lucky" dice. Hmm or maybe that's why I've lost more then ive won...(darn t-sons chosen of Ahiman...)

HAZZA26 Why not put a copy of your army list up on the 'army lists' child-board? *This way we can all see what you have and make suggestions for composition and tactics. *You may not win next time either, but it should be a closer game. *Tau take a bit of getting used to.

Also, without wishing to sound picky, I think you would benefit from using the spell checker when you post. *It makes your posts easier for us to read and people will take you more seriously.

Hope that helps.

PS My lucky green dice never fail to be lucky, it's just that they aren't always lucky for me

lol.

But yeah, or maybe a battle report of some kind. Or you could weigh down the "1" on the dice to have a better chance of it landing on a 6 :P

But then, when you play against a nid, what happens when they want to use your dice for their Genestealer attacks?

Weighted dice are a two-sided railgun...

(My analogies suck today.)

Don't loose hope my friend, especially if these where your first few games! A good general in the tabletop is something more than a good armylist or lucky dice. With some experience you will learn to coordinate your moves better, "measure" distances with a glance and see through your opponents traps or nasty surprises! Learn from every game and of course Enjoy the game!

In time nothing will stop you (even bad dice) to serve well the Empire!

For the Greater Good!

Chaos are always a pain, i've just got hammered by a nurgle force, everything T5 makes the Tau weapons less effective, not to mention having everything deepstrike successfully turn 2 right in your face, the final death nell was the 500pts difference (i only had 1k to his 1500).

Roll with the punches and just enjoy the game. Some times the dice go in your favour, other times they don't...if it doesn't matter, who cares?

With terminators just pump them full of lots of shots or focus your low AP weapons, even with a 2+ save and 5+inv they will go down eventually.
