Welcome to Librarium Online!
Alright, so here's the scoop. Last Monday, I was playing a game at my local GW against a Sisters of Battle army. Everything was going well until his Seraphim charged in and wiped out my Command squad in CC, leaving my Jr. Officer w/ Honrofifica Imperialis alone and w/ 1 wound remaining, and the used their Hit & Run rule to withdraw. In addition, on the turn before this, they had wiped out all but the Sergeant from one of my Grenadiers squads, but he somehow kept making his "All on Your Own" test and refusing to flee. On the very next turn, his Seraphim chraged in and melta bombed my Basilisk, blowing it to smithereens. I thought I was going to lose anyway, so on my next turn, after my Grenadier sergeant passed his "All On Your Own" test again, I moved my him and my officer towards the Seraphim, shot once with each of their pistols (killing 1 Seraphim), then suicidally chraged into close combat.
What happened next can only be described as a miracle. My two lone Guard heroes, aremd with pistols and regular close combat weapons, scythed through the power armoured Seraphim, completely wiping them out on the first turn of combat, without receiving a single wound in return. Because of this, I ended up winning the game (it gave me a lot of victory points), and I've decided to convert a medal or award of some sort for my officer. But this isn't theo nly time he's had good luck in CC. In the game I played before this one, he beat down a squad of Swooping Hawks that charged him and caused them to retreat (though he didn't run them down with their stinkin' I5!). As a Guard player, I just thought you guys would find that amusing.
Oh, and here's a list of some of the other crazy CC kills my guard have made: A squad of 10 Space Wolves wolves (and they wre the ones charging), a unit of 10 Guants, a charging Lictor without taking any casualties, a Striking Scorpions Exarch without taking any casualties, a Necron Lord (and he didn't stand back up!), and a countless number of Eldar Guardians.

Your experience proves that the Imperial Guard are the only army to count on when the chips are down. :p
...And they shall fear the lasgun
Yeah, that model definently deserves some special awards, maybe a custom chain-sword too. ^_^

The first thing he needs is a great name!
Whenever a higher command model does something amazing in games amongst my friends and I, we always be sure to give him a fitting name. Heres some of the names of my Guard Sgt's and Commanders:
-Fisto (The Catachan officer model with the giant powerfist, name is an old cartoon reference)
-Captain Fabulous (Has made some fantastic one in a million shots, and the model has an Eldar head, fueling possible gay rumors...)
-Sgt. Sloth (A Goonies reference because although he is quite stupid at times, he's the hero when you least expect it. Also, painting the face on this particular model didnt go so well...)
Whipping up a name, and keeping track of a models accomplishments will start to add depth to your army, and its a blast to reminisce about old times especially with things you can hold over your friend's head. Ill never forget when Captain Fabulous took out a Black Templar Champion with his las pistol shot as he was running away...
I am the Aquila-Guerilla!
with me the names are usally as funny and obscure as ai can make them like a marine with a plasma cannon named A.I.D.S "oh no that squad died because aids snuck up on them from behind!" or a grotesque named Flower, but for him i'm thinkin somthin like Johny Desire Dave. What ever you pick it should be somthing l you woun't forget
MY friends grot Benny McTwiggles a lone grot that some how killed my high marshal my emporers champion.... then my high marshal again after he got up from bionics..... i have never rolled so mnay 1s in my life
Well somebody certainly had the dice gods favour's for those 2 models.
Anyway great game, keep it up.
My HSO accomplished a similar feat against a squad of Daemonettes. It took more than one turn but he killed them all himself without taking a wound and with nothing better than a power weapon and laspistol.
Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural Stupidity.
My HSO together with my Master Vox Caster where the lone survivors of a space marine scout bike squad assault killing two. One had died from shooting earlier. My HSO strikes back, killing three bikers who then fail their leadership test, try to fall back and are then run down by my HSO and Master Vox Caster. Equipmen: the good old Laspistol/CCW of course.
