at my local store, they were holding a tournament.
so all was normal.
as i was walking i see a kroot merc. list playing against necrons...
usually slaughter on a massive scale (unless the kroot player is veteran of the year!?)
i chimed in and out everynow and then out of a mild disgust and a need to laugh...
the kroot were winning...
not by a little BUT BY ALOT!
3rd turn the casualties were... insane!?
the kroot player had lost 2 kroot
and the cron player lost half of his army including a monolith...
so you'd think the kid woulda quit and threw his army away...(or atleast his dice and his strategy!)
but by the end of the game...
kroot had lost a total of 3 kroot
and the necron player was WIPED OUT!8X
i dont know... thats the worst game ive ever witnessed... anyone else seen anything worse?

A recent CP game I had against sisters of battle. I managed to kill one sister with a grenade launcher and another by tank shocking (failed the Death or Glory). Lost my entire army - it was brutal.

My worst game was ageist the crons I was play my ork as speed freaks I killed 3 crons and 2 of them got back end of turn 4 I hard nothing left on the broad. It was just one of them games where nothing went right.
On How Much is enough? And When Do You Quit!? we have one kid who plays a grey knights list just about never won a game best result was a draw for the 1st year but he did slowly (although very slowly) get better and start to win games

Fast is the only way to be.
I had a 1500 min-maxed anti-SM Plasma/Las SM army against Rhino-Rushing Blood Angels. Lost only 4 marines, all due to overheats.
I once only lost a single scorpion, 3 banshees and 1 member of a heavy weapon platform team against IG. Another time, I lost 2 banshees, a warwalker, and 4 scorpions against marines. Biel-Tan Craftworld Eldar were broken times. 18 S6 AP2 shots wiped out entire squads of marines in one turn, and my only troops were elites.

We bring only death, and leave only carrion. It is a message even a Human can understand.
well i had a game against foot sloggin Blood angels against my Boogey man tactic Dark Eldar...
i lost a total of 4 dark eldar warriors...
pinned his entire army the first turn save the death company.
by the beggining of third turn
he lost his entire army...
poor guy thought death company could take on incubi!8X
but it was his 1st time against DE so i guess it was just not knowing what was gonna happen...

I once played against a eldar player, and by turn 5 he had gotten 175 victory points (killed my scarabs and tomb spyder ) and I had 2500 victory points (his entire army). It was pretty brutal.
Was annoyed at someone bragging they had beat me in a showgame where I had been forced to field 3 seperate armies on the table, fighting 4 opponents, and couldn't use special rules and was forced to use time limit of a single force. I crushed two opponents, and got wiped on the other end because my alaitoc couldn't use disruption and there was no terrain on that board end within " of the edge. My whole alaitoc force came in piecemeal (had to use reserves) and couldn't get to cover against a fully deployed tau static shoot list. The tau player was being a smug sheet about it so I asked him to a rematch after.
Turn 3 win in a 1500 pt game. End result, 80 vps him (he killed my avatar), to 2250 (had all 4 table corners and killed him to a man).I certainly shut him up. After that I asked if he'd like to play a fun balanced game since the scale was back at even-he declined.
16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
1,500+ of Legion (just started)
I've had it both ways.
Beat a friend's Eldar pretty badly on a regular basis with my Tau. More than once he's been left with no scoring units going into turn 2.
Lost with Necrons to Chaos in the worst way. Lost the Monolith first turn, and then all of my units made a fallback off the table or caught in sweeping advance. No Phase Out, just gone...

I once destroyed a BA rhino rush army in a championship final. I lost one marine to a lascannon shot. Amusingly enough I was using a balanced BA army (seriously- I had devastators) that was designed as an all-comers killer- as you would for a tournie.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
