Share some stories to the community of your worst luck. Things that could not of gone your way at all and the warp has possessed your luck.

So during a game my ally (close friend) Puts his super heavy in the middle of the battlefield. We have completely demolished the other team all they have is a few models left on the board. Our side still has about 80% of our points and of all models left on the other side is a few las teams. Using they're orders the get TL shots into the superheavy. They all hit, and of course all penetrate the rear armour. Of all things it happens to go nuclear, not so great for any of us. It leaves our side left with a few models while the other side is saved by an angels dice rolling cover saves. :angel: With our close range units we are shot down by they're long range lascannons. And we lost.......................

my worst luck would have to be scattering a vindicator bullet onto my own Land raider, blowing it up, and haveing the explosion from my land raider kill 3 termies AND a rune priest in runic armor. (i rolled 4 1's on their armor saves)

Mine is pretty close to crisis suit guys. My baneblade was moving down the center of the table and following it came 3 platoons of guardsman and my freinds land raider carrieing his CM and termie escort. Baneblade takes a hit on turn three and goes boom, wiping out all my guard platoons (expexct for a commisar and iron hand starken(hes a beast)) and my freinds land raider plus two squads of his assualt marines that had just DS. This is the second time this has happend to me...said baneblade is getting sold.

First and only game. My Dp assaults ork dread. All ones and twos for armor pen. All ones and twos for saves on the return hits. Dead in one round of combat.

god so many bad luck situations, welp I'll tell you two of my favorites -

I had a Vindicaire who never and I mean NEVER killed anything. He would either roll a one to hit or would never wound. I used this guy in seven battles before I finally said enough is enough.

I was once playing against a guy with my IG who had a Landspeeder heavy army (and no he wasn't playing DA, imagine that). Anyway he brought 6 to the battle (2 units of 3). Now while my IG is just leveling his tanks and SM those damn Landspeeders NOT all survived till the end of the game (2 had suffered weapons destroyed results, but still) because I couldn't take the bastards out they literally turned the tide of the battle and snatched victory from my hands. This was in 3rd edition and we were playing a Cleanse mission.

This was a good luck bad luck time:

I had just finished killing off a 20 ork mob with Kharn and 7 bezerkers, 3 bezerkers died in the process. On his next turn, I get charged by another mob (fucking waagh), the boys manage to do absolutely nothing. Now it's Kharn's turn to attack, I roll 5 ones to hit, I kill all my bezerkers and one boy. Now for the good luck, the Nob with the PK puts all his attacks into Kharn, I end up saving each 5+ invunerable save.

This was by far the silliest thing to happen to me in 40K

In my first game of 8th edition fantasy my vampire miscast 4 times two dicing invocations. Luckily each times he rolled detonation killing 10 skeletons over the course of the game. WTF!

Back in 2nd edition, Mephiston got into CC with Commissar Yarrick. Mephiston decimated him. I needed a 2 or better to take him out of the game. I had 4 chances at it. There's no way I could fail. This guy was going down. 4 1's. 4 gotdamn 1's. Then Yarrick's powerfist killed Mephy.

On the flip side, in fourth edition I took out two leman russ tanks consecutively with Krak missiles by rolling 2 6's. Back when you could still kill a tank with the first glancing hit, oh those were the days.

My Vindicators are becoming worse and worse over the games, the first game I used one he destroyed a full unit of SM Veterans in one shot, and now they are either firing at themselves( causing self-destruction) or trying to fire at the enemy, scatter just on MY marines and kill 6-7 while only killing 1 of the enemy's.

On the bright side, my regular opponent is as unlucky as me: turn 1, a drop pod deepstrikes behind my mechanized force: 3 meltaguns inside: triple 1 to hit! Then seven bolters proceed to rapid-fire the rear armour: vindicator immobilized. WTF?

It didn't happen to me but I witnessed it: A skaven player had his doomwheel have an accident and rolled five sixes to destroy it in one fell swoop. Epic.

A lot of my bad luck has revolved around reserves failing to show up when and where I need them. I tend to pay for my good games with shocking games. I tabled a Sisters player with my Orks on monday so I'm due a really shitty game next time

I had some pretty bad luck in a game of PlanetStrike recently when my Fortress Of Redemption's Missile Silo went horribly wrong and killed an entire unit of Grey hunters on the second turn......and then went wrong a second time, scattered right on top of my 3 objective claiming Wolf Guard in TDA and killed them too, right in the final turn of the game (which also caused me to lose the game).

Using eldrad against my friends "Gay Angels", i cast my three powers only to suffer from 3 perils of the warp and then went on to then Fail all my ghost helm rolls AND all my armour saves, talk about EPIC FAIL. I then went on to lose the game because of this bad rolling, i hate the "Gay Angels" with a passion.

Super heavies are a bane to all.

I don't have any super heavies but a partner of mine had a few stompas, so in a team game i provided as much support while he did all the fighting, the idiot thought he would keep a shooty stompa REALLY close to my guys as "SUPPORT", the apponent lazcannon'd it to death on turn one, it went nuclear, and guess what happened? yeah. IT DESTROYED NEARLY EVERYTHING I HAD. guess what he said? "WHY DID YOU HAVE YOUR GUYS SO CLOSE TO MY STOMPA, SCRUB! NO ONE PLAY WITH THIS GUY HE SUCKS"

I was almost tabled on the first turn by an IG player. I had four rhino's, 2 squads of PM's, a squad of Berzerkers, and a squad of CSM's along with a defiler and some oblits. End of the first turn, I had around 6 Plague Marines in total left (from 14 total), 5 Berzerkers left, and my oblits which were in reserve. I proceeded to lose on the 2nd turn.

On the flip side, during one of my games against Blood Angels I proceeded to take out a Death Company Dread, a normal Dread, and a Land Speeder with one squad of Plague Marines (thats the reason why you take the fist :wink:)

The game my traitor guardsmen army made the debut the primaris psiquer killed himself in 2 turns having suffered 2 perils of the warp. Also, a unit of veterans with 3 plasma rifles lost the 3 plasmas in 1 turn thanks to "Get's hot". Damn that was sad.
On the bright side, a mob of 19 boys and 1 nob with claw charged at my chimera, blowed it. The explosion killed 3 traitor guardsmen and 12 boyz. The boyz were shooted to death next turn.
