Alright, I am currently looking for stories from as many people as possible as to the favorite figure in their armies doing the greatest unbelievable heroic deeds worthy of recognition. I'm going to use this to incorporate it somehow into a heroes list. PLus I always get a kick out of hearing other people's battle stories. These could be anything from a point:point ratio (i.e. a 61pt vtrn sgt beating down 240 points of dreadnoughts) or just open slaughter (i.e. a 9 man Death company gets let lose on 2 full conscription platoons and how long it took to kill them all )
Well, here's mine. My Chaplain Calypsius was in an open bunker along with a tac squad and a captain, when I was assaulted by 8 nobs in mega armor(Can't forget Mr. Big Happy War Boss with them) that came squealing around a corner in a trukk from out of sight and dumped it's happy friends right on top of me. From the other side a Burna boyz squad came up and flamed the living crap out of my squad....4 times..killing 7 marines and putting a wound on the captain. when the assault happened, the chaplain was not in base-to-base with any of the nobs, but 2 of the burna boys. after the awesome results of 3 marines in base with the Nobz, and my power weapon armed captain, I did 1 wound to the nobz. then everyone was cut in half by powerclaws. Except Calypsius, who happily hacked down 4 Burna boys(used that holy relic, the other guys didn't benefit much though.) BTW, my chaplain has a powerfist, T honors, A. Armor, all the usual stuff. By the end of the fight, the Chaplain (R.I.P) made 7 invulnerable saves, hacking through all the Nobz(all the burna boys that had been left had burnas, and he killed them all the first round) with his power fist. THen the title fight came, theWarboss and the Chaplain. Now I tried to be a hero and not use the power fist against him, so I could go and reinforce my friends, so I used the crozius...hacking away all but 1 wound....then he attacks and inflicts 4 wounds with his power claw......Calypsius made the first 3.....Then was summarily decapitated. I gave him a cluster of purity seals and am currently remaking the model to appropriately show off Calypsius.
The other stories don't have to be as long if you don't want(haha look at me assuming people will even write...) or can be longer.. Thanks for reading this
I was playing a game against my roommate who was using imperial guard. I, of course, was using space wolves. He fielded 2 basilisks and a leman russ battle tank. The fight was gruesome, most of my troops being slaughtered before they got into hand-to-hand combat. The wolf priest alone was able to make it to the tanks giving me all hell. A pack of scouts were able to infiltrate behind the 2 basilisks and destroy them, but on the other side of his deployment zone was the leman russ tank. The scouts were taken out, and the only model that had a chance against it was the wolf priest with krak gerenades. Now, I gave the priest bionics as an afterthought. I never would ahve guessed when the priest took some heavy bolter fire, and died, he would get up. Not once, not twice, but 3 times. Luckily the turret weapon was gone, the demolisher cannon on the rus was taken out by my long fangs, so he couldnt instakill him with the tank. as he moved the tank away from my priest to deny me the ability to attack his rear armor with the grenades (i stood no chance of getting his side armor) he didnt realize he moved the rear-right part of the tank JUST into range of my lascanon long fang. That turn, the wolf priest was floored again, but failed the get up roll, but the lascanon pinned the leman and destroyed it, winning me the match. This had happened (the consecutive get up rolls) only once before, with a similar situation.
The sets of dice were teh same for both games. Needless to say, I protect those dice more than my minis, and refuse to let my roommates near them
Nice match! I've only even heard of another person having someone get up 3 times w/ bionics, and it was in a tree campaign. The first game he lived with both wounds, totally fine. The next game he Deepstriked next to an IG platoon and was rapid fired by 40 flashlights, taking away both wounds, and he got up. The next turn he flew behind a Chimera filled with 5 Ogryns and a commissar, shot it with a plasma pistol, took away his wound, and got back up with bionics. The chimera drove off. SO the captain chases it down and shoots it again with the plasma pistol hoping to trap the dudes inside, etc. etc. and kills himself again..By now my friend is shouting expletives and is furious at the captain, failing so many 2+ saves. Finally a Lascannon shot blows up the tank, but the following explosion hit, wounded and killed the unfortunate captain. Hence the reason that angel winged figure gathers dust on the graveyard shelf in his garage.
well i have to tell this story i was playing deathwing and at the front of my army 1st turn was a terminator squad with 2 guys remaiing it had been shot to bits then his super fast chaos lord assulted me with like 8 attacks all of witch hit and wounded then i had to take my invulnerables and i mede 7 out of 8 5+ invulnerables me and all the people around me nearly died i was jumping up and down i was so happy then i made my 2 attacks with my remaining power fist termy hit with 1 and wounded my oponent failed his invulnerable and got instant splatted i then completely raped the rest of his army

i had a game that i played a IG army with 3 Basies and a buch of flash lights. first turn 20 Blood Claws and two rhinos fell to the basies, the first kill for me was a Basie by Long Fangs. fast foward to two turns later my side is desmatd one pack o' claws and their lightning claws toting Leader rip threw Guardsmen till they fell to anti tank wepons. my Dreadnought starts ripping throu the Guards me Killing Nine in on assualt he killed twenty of the guard before a basie shell ripped throu him during a charge.
I love it! Most of the heroes now, 4 of 5, have died after their glorious acts, true heroic acts. This is exactly the stuff I like to hear, cause it's what the game is all about, ya know?
heres my story abou tmy chaplain who has no name becuase i suck at making names.
It was a battle af about 1000 pts with blood angels against traitorous black templar (i dont know how BT went traitor, but they did) And the black templars devastator squad had destroyed about half my troops and almost everyone else (except for some survivors from a rhino) were in a massive combat in the middle of the map (it was my chaplain, death company, and a tactical squad against a grandmaster, assualt squad which was nearly dead, a emperors champion, and some other guys) and the chaplainsurvived everyone (including grandmaster and emperors champoin) but everyone else died, and he charged into the devastator squad and slew them all, unfortunetly he was slain by a devastator marine. i still won with 2 tactical guys left, who were able to finish the devastators. The chaplain wasn't completely killed though, and for his heroic acts he is now a dreadnought that uses morior the choosens rules! (he is morior the choosen but is really the chaplain)
Back from a long adventure.
One game I was short a few points and decided to give my Vet Assault Sarg an Iron Halo. At the time I only had 5 assault marines so the squad was mainly used to engage targets of opportunity. However in this game my opponent got his Bloodthirster summoned right away, and terrifyingly near my battle lines. So I heroicly moved my Assault Squad to counter the Greater Daemon, In a desperate move that I hoped would buy me a turn or two at the most. After easily slaughtering the Assault marines it was just the sarg and the 'Thirster standing toe to toe, Luckily he had a Powerfist or this might have been a short fight. Anyway a combination of my great luck and my opponents terrible luck, six turns later and something like 16 straight Inv saves, the game ended with those two still locked in fierce battle. He still gets an Iron Halo everytime he comes out to play, He earned it!
I also had a game in which a Chaplain managed to (with a little bit of help from a battered assault squad) almost singlehandedly wipe out 2 tactical squads and a scout squad... He (and I) was so jacked that in the last turn I used a follow up move to engage a Dreadnaught, only then realizing I had not gotten him a powerfist or anything that could hurt the metal monstrosity. He was squashed like a grape the in HtH... So my Chaplain was a little over zealous...

I love it when your marines get too over-zealous and charge to their deaths. I was in a 3-way battle against Dark Eldar and Eldar with my Ultramarines(of course) and the DE player opened up a webway rightin the center of the battlefield, with approx. 50-60 warriors around it. Well, my 2 heavy bolter devastator squads and the eldar swooping hawks, which had 2 squads as well, cleaned them up pretty quick. But out of the webway comes not 1, not 2, but 3 Talos!! They jumped into the combat with the dozen and a half Swooping hawks, who were pretty screwed. Well, the Eldar player didn't know that the Talos has toughness 7, so he put that Exarch up next to it, and started rolling away with the Sustained attack skill, ended up getting close to 25 hits with it, then was chopped in half for his efforts..Puny strength 3 fiends. My CHaplain didn't want any of that, So my 2 heavy bolter squads finished off 1, and my Missile launcher squad finished off another, and my razorback tank shocked the other one, who tried to stop it, and was summarily ran over when he rolled the lowest possible for Armor Pen...But watching that Exarch roll that well only to realize that he can't even hurt it brings tears to my eyes, cause he thought he was gonna kill it...lol
This is about my ethereal with an honour blade, (no name so he just called aun)
tau vs chaos,
basically his defilers big cannon thing blew my fire warriors to pieces leaving the 3 remaining stealth suits with aun, who charged his 20 man chaos marines with aspiring champion and chaos lord.
First combat my stealth got massacred for 6 chaos and aun took a wound off the lord. the chaos marines took only 1 wound off my aun ( i saved about 13 invulnerable saves )
then my aun basically slaugthered his chaos lord, and according to our scenario rules, when the HQ dies the opponent wins, so good old aun survived and won me the match, so i converted his honour blade into the gunblade out of FF8
