3 squads of imperial guardsmen firing lasguns and flamers at 5 Death Company Blood Angels. Roughly 80 shots? Killed 2 of them. Or what about the time the Leman Russ template scattered back onto me?

Actually shooting 80 lasguns shot at a death company should give you about 1.5 wounds, so technically you did better than the average.

But for me worst shooting phase ever. Had 3 out of my 4 plasma gun IST kill themselves. Plasma cannon in my inquisitor squad over heat, reroll and still miss. Point blank inferno pistol into the back of tank rolling a one on the penetration chart. Same result with a melta torpedo on another tank.

I used to roll the dice, Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes

My Sob have 4 vehicles at the moment, 1 exorcist, 1 repressor, 1 immolator and 1 rhino. I lost every single one in a single turn of necrons firing at me and i lost 1/4 of the troops within when they tried to escape the wreckage.

A great tactician knows that victory is one part planning and nine parts faith

Remember Alex arrogance killed the person nobody liked.

I don't remember if it was a shooting phase, a saving throw, or what, but I had four 1s, ditto 2s, one 3 and a 4 our of a total 10. I also managed to fail 4 2+ armour saves for a terminator squad being attacked by a charging squad of Kroot.

What can I say? 52 attacks is a lot.

I had an IG sniper make a SM tac squad run in close combat. 1 kill was enough to make him drop below 25%. They failed their leadership and ran away. It was beautiful.

Well,space marines know no fear.

But my worst shooting was a combination of psychic powers and wounding rolls. Out of 7 Psychic powers(yes 7, I had Ahriman) i periled 4 with double 6s and 2 with double 1s and I got an 11 on another test. I lost all 3 of my aspiring Sorcerers, 1 wound on my slaanesh and 1 wound on Ahriman, (rolled a 2 and a 1).
And to hit with my 1ksons I got all hit out of 27 shots, and caused 2 wounds. and he passed his cover save.
Next turn, I had orks in my face like never before, but ahriman made it up by making a warboss into a spawn that killed his wierdboy.

set the stage....a squad of 5 Blood Angels moving toward a unit of Tau Fire Warriors, by the time they get into rapid fire range there is only one space marine left...Fire warriors steady them selves and unleash a staggering 24 shots. 16 of the shots hit the one lonely space marine, 12 of them wound, so far doing better than i should statistically.

not a single save roll under 3. not one. one space marine took 12 shots up the tail pipe and shrugged it off. and people complain about my railgun.

First game of Warhammer 40k ever back in 2nd Ed. Lascannon hit my Eldar Dreadnought, critical damage, exposed the soulstone, caused everyone of my Psykers Heads to explode.

Another 2nd Ed Game. One shot to my Rhino, blew it up, caused it to flip over onto my other rhino, causing a pen hit and blowing it up flipping it over killing every model in both Rhinos including my command squad.

For those of you that don't know 2nd ed, 2 squads with rhinos was roughtly 80% of your points, btw it was the first shot of the game, I had not even picked up the dice. Only time I have been annialted on the first turn before I had a chance to move my models.

The funniest bad shooting phase that I've seen was when playing against a necron guy with my eldar. Take and hold with my wraithlord and his monolith going for the objective, so they were close together. The monolith fired its particle whip at the wraithlord, scattered 6", and annihilated itself. Bang.
