Not long ago, I had a SWS with flamers duke it out with a 10 man CSM squad + Ahriman over my objective for the game. My special weapons squad managed to lay down the hurt on Ahriman squad and took out a whopping 8 of them plus Ahriman with some terrific rolling, but it wasn't enough to knock them off of the objective so they charged in. They survived overwatch and because of the positioning, I needed to take out the whole squad to secure the objective. My opponent managed one kill between his two guys. I rolled the dice and my guardsmen flubbed every single one of their attacks, failed morale and were swept by the CSM who then consolidated onto my objective.
I haven't run SWS since that spectacular failure.
Yup, that sounds about right. The only faction who are a bigger bunch of backstabbers than the Imperium are the Eldar (and this is debatable as the Eldar only stab OTHER factions in the back).
