Just wondered if anyone could tell me if this sounds like horrible luck, or just something that is bound to happen.
Game I played last night I had 5 plasma weapons in a 1500pt army. 2 Plasma Cannons and 3 Plasma Pistols.
Long story short by Turn 4 I had lost both of the Plasma Cannons and two of the three Plasma Pistols to "Gets Hot!". I was obviously playing Space Marines and even with the 3+ Armour Save, they all got toasted :x
So super bad luck, or just bound to happen? Thanks, and please let me know what I can do to appease the dice Gods, so that this can be avoided in the future.
Its eventually bound to happen. In one game I had my ONLY plasma cannon overheated 4 times!, the two times it didn't it missed! I cursed that model that day.....
But yeah, it will eventually happen, you will go games where they earn their points back many times over, other where all they do is make kentucky fried marine.
To appease the dice gods? sometimes it works to ASK for a overheat and they make sure it doesn't to spite you (yes, the dice gods are a bit thick). Also, magic dice work, ones where the numbers are rubbing off/have an incorrect number of dots are usually blessed.
Of course, to ensure total luck, you can waive a dead chicken and do a cerimonial voodoo dance over the table before the game, that ensures you get some kind of luck...

That Magic Dice thing makes sense! I think I could model a whole set of dice that I just happen to leave the ONES off of! I could just add another side with six dots to make up for this, and then the dice would be good for shots with Assault Cannons too! Thanks for the help, and letting me know my plasma follies are not isolated incidents.
Oh by the way, would the pool of chicken blood be difficult or impassible terrain?Originally Posted by The_Outsider
Impassable, its the will of the dice gods it remains clear and unmolested.Oh by the way, would the pool of chicken blood be difficult or impassible terrain?
Meltaguns - melts on the enemy, not in your hands!
It is totally bad luck, which was bound to happen. The cool thing is that when the law of averages kicks in, you'll have a couple of games where the plasma cannons/pistols do a great job on the enemy forces.Originally Posted by BringerOfStorms
Something similar happened to me once.
My assault squad was planning on charging a unit of iron warriors and fired their weapons. Two of the three plasma weapons melted and killed two of my marines (including my PowerFist Seargeant). Needless to say I lost a combat and changed the outcome of the game from a victory to a draw had I not fired so badly in that shooting phase.
You have your lucky games and you have your bad games, stuff like thats bound to happen every once and a while.

Now to really please the dicegods you need to make an altar where you sacrifice a model each time you are going to play a game
Now back to topic. My plasma guns always overheat in the first 2 turns. I donĀ“t know why but each time I fire the plasma the overheat and ALWAYS fail my armour save.
After 3 games I cursed them but I use them sometime to see if I have more luck now the them.
DonĀ“t mess with the dicegod
