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.

Who would've thought that overwatch would cause three wounds on a Reclusiarch and Sergeant?

Furthermore, why the heck did I have to fail those three armour saves?!?!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I charged the Avatar at a 5 Marine Tactical Squad, he lost 1 wound to an Overwatching Plasma Pistol and two in Assault to Marine punches...

Oh and he had fortune and only killed a single Marine.

Sounds like you guys get no love... Its funny but at the time I know we all want to just choke a cat lol!

Last week I was playing against a tau army with my Death Wing army and I assaulted a squad of fire warriors with belial and 2 other terminators... well... Belial had one wound left from the last round of shooting and of course the tau player gets 3 potential wounds, belial is out front I "look out sir" and pass two of them and fail one armor save on one of the two guys in his unit (great)... then I fail the last "look out sir" and then fail his 2+ ... yes belial dies to over watch....

The guy was pumped but little did he know all I needed was one terminator to eat the warrior squad and make them run lol!

Still.. A sad day for Belial.
