Default against all odds

just wanted to say that i had a battle last night against the tyranids, one of my fire warrior sqauds (6 man) defeated a lictor in close combat after being assaulted!!!
added to that a 3 man shas'vre XV8 team defeated a 16 strong hormagaunt assault too!

i thought it would be cool to post some incredible against the odds stories.

Heh, my 3 Fw once won against a Hive Tyrant in Close combat.

He missed all his attack, and I rolled all 6's to hit and wound, then he rolls all 1's for his save and dies.

In one of the few games I've ever played, a squad of unbonded 9 firewarriors weathered a bunch of "loota" shots (like, 30 a turn) for 3 turns. It was pretty cool. I totally lost, but it was still cool.

A single fire warrior killed a C'tan over 5 rounds. Look at this message to show how I kill C'tans easy.

A squad of 9 firewarriros is charged by an Aspriing Sorceror of Tzeentch. The Sorceror leaps over the wall the warriors were using as cover, and comes down swinging his force weapon, ready to bring DOOM! And is promptly laid out by the Shas'Ui team leader, who butt-smacks him in the face with a pulse rifle. Awesome.

If only my FW's were as good as everyone else's. I had a 12 man squad and they got slaughtered by Harlequins. I managed to get revenge by firing a Sub-Munition railgun shot and 2 solid shots at them. They failed their armour saves, all apart from the Shadowseer who I shot with 3 Plasma Rifles and then he died.

after having is honour guard killed, my ethereal gets charged by 10 chaos bikers. He survives, killing 7 in total, the rest run away. He then goes and beats a chaos sorceror in combat. Just out of spite, he gets snipined by a lascannon, but hey

My Broadside defeated a Chaos Knorne Lord in CC. After stabbing himself twice (or something) with the Knorne weapon, the Broadside proceeded to squoosh him.

In addition, my Gun Drones do ridiculous things, such as sweeping-advancing a squad of Sisters of Battle.

My 3 stealth suits are fleeing from an Ork mob. The Warboss breaks off from the mob and charges them! The suits turn around and kill him before he gets a chance to attack! Awsome!
Hey is that your (INSERT ANY 40K WEAPON) or are you just happy to see me?
