Now, I know we always get a few "what was the best game you've ever played" topics, but heres an idea...

how about your worst ever loss?

Mine has to be getting my arse completly kicked by 20 hormogaunts, 20 gaunts, a hive tyrant and a carnifex in a city fight. More pain than I could imagine, I was completly massacred :ireful2:

so, anyone else got spanked so badly?

I lost a 1500pt Grey Knight army one day (20 Knights, 1 Full Termie squad + GM, and 3 GK Dreadnoughts) and only killed 5 Ironwarriors :(

The 3rd Edition Ironwarriors dropped enough plasma templates from Oblits and heavy weapons fire to kill nearly every knight in the first turn, and his Deamon prince had the "And you shall know no save axe" which combined with a Vindicator tank killed all my Termies by turn 3 :(

The second most sound thrashing I have ever witnessed in this game..

My worst beating was with my pure GKs against a dark eldar player. He got lucky enough to get 2 wytch squads in CC on the first turn. Raider darklances made short work out of my 2 dreads. The GKs got beaten badly, my two squads were fighting against 4 wytch squads and the dreaded dark eldar lord... I think I got to kill 5 wytch total. The turn my Termies deepstriked they scattered way off loosing 2 members to some ruins. On the DE turn they got toasted by something like 6 blaster shots and 8 darklances.

I think my biggest loss was playing a 4 person game, I deployed last so by then I was stuck into a tiny space with my mechanized space wolves. I had to stay 24 inches away from all enemy models. A single basilisk shot wiped out 3/4 of my army before I even took a turn. I ended up contesting the objective at the end because everyone ignored me for the rest of the game though. I think that was the worst first turn I've ever had. Didn't even get to do anything and the entirety of my army is naught but flaming wreckage and broken bodies of the sons of russ!

Worst beating I ever got was trying to force 1750 points of Necrons out of a trio of bunkers. Not a single railgun from my force hit, and I had lost all but my Kroot by turn 4. Those Kroot managed to get into hand to hand, killed an entire squad...And then he made every single WBB roll. In all, I lost 1750 points, and he had lost...0

There have been some games I’ve lost before they started but which have still been fun. Back in 3rd edition I found myself playing meat grinder against an assault heavy dark angels army using my Tau. I was the attacker and there was loads of terrain, which he hid behind. I had to send my guys in to try and wipe him out but there was no way to get lines of sight on his guys without getting into charge range of all sorts of nasty stuff first. Also the only stuff that got “recycled” in my army were my units of kroot and fire warriors, which couldn’t really do anything in any case. Fun game but impossible. It made me learn some tricks that I can use in “normal” situations so I’m pretty glad I played it.

More recently I played a game against Tau using my marines where nothing I did worked, entirely thanks to dice. I was deep striking in a dreadnaught and two terminator squads, including a librarian with fear of the darkness. Everything scattered out of range and/or line of sight of their targets and was then blown away by close range plasma fire from crisis suits. In one turn I failed 3 out of 4 2+ saves. I had lascannons from my tactical squads and three predators shooting at his hammerheads every turn of the game but never got better than a stunned result. He didn’t lose a single model.

to narrow it down I'll just say...about 90% of my games are crushing defeats, the other 10% is just a loss.
its because I'm too nice, maybe I should do a cheese army

Played a 2000 point game against a necron player who had 3 squads of warriors some scarab swarms, a bunch of destroyers, a monolith AND a deceiver. He pretty much just sat most of his warriors behind a hill while the rest of his army shot up my guys as I tried to make it to his troops. I could hit anything with my exorcist or orbital bombardments. Let's not forget that he made almost every single wbb roll. One turn I killed 20 guys he made wbb rolls. Worst loss as well as the most frustrating game I ever played. It was not fun at all.

Worst for me was my Tau against an all bike and assault marine SM army. Fired 148 shots (no lie) at a squad of bikes and didn't kill them all. Then watched as the 2 left and 4 scout bikes went through every unit I had without a loss.

i played my tau vs a space marine army that the guy played fast a sweeping like eldar. by turn at the beginning of my turn 3 he said..."even if you fail the deep strike roll for those crisis suits they are going on the table>'

"whys that" i asked cluelessly

"because if they come on next turn, they will be the only thing on the board."

damn it, he was right!
