    Am i doing something wrong?

    Ok so i've been into warhammer since like 2002 but u really haven't played that much. So i was using combined squads and had 33 shots going into a SM Scout Squad only 5 shots actually hit, two died which i was somewhat happy about becuase he got bad saves, is this normal many shots but few hits, i know IG has flashlights and there regualar infantry is weak. but is this normal or am i doing something wrong(besides bad rolls)

    We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....

    Well I haven't had many problems with combined squads, to me with your post you didn't mention how you used them, what weapons they had... It's hard to tell you if you're doing something wrong when we don't know what you're doing.

    you had bad rolls to hit, he had bad rolls to wound. In my experience, a squad should only expect to cause 1-2 casualties against T4 units until you add special weapons.
    Most Notable Achievements:
    Killed a Revenant Titan in one shot.
    Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.

    Ok, it wasn't really the combined squad i was worried about it was the lack of kills, but i guess thats to be expected from IG Infantry.

    grenade launchers, flamers, heavy flamers (On chimera's) plasma guns are all examples of the sort of things you need to take to kill infantry, don't leave it up to the humble lasgun.

    No one fears a lasgun.

    Everyone fears forty.

    ----------------------------

    Seriously though, you just rolled poorly. With 33 lasgun shots you will on average hit with half of them at BS3. So that's 16.5 hits. So you only got 1/3rd of your statistical average, was just bum luck.

    That still averages out to a (rounded up) two models removed, which I believe causes them to make a Morale test given their squad size (forgive me if the new CSM codex is different, it's been a long time since I played against any Plague Marines).
