    Victory without losing a man (or woman/machine/beast/bug/alien/what-have-you)?

    I was just curious to know if anyone has ever managed to get through a tabletop battle of any kind (Fantasy, 40K, Hordes, Warmachine, whatever) without losing a single miniature?

    I ask because I was momentarily thinking about those armies Iíve seen which are really heavily themed (more common in elite 40K armies, I guess), with every member of the army having a name. It just made me wonder what happened when one of your models didnít make it, and then as an extension made me wonder if it was possible for all of your models to make it through unscathed.

    So, has it ever happened to you?

    Not for me, I have only won maybe 3 games out of 40 so the chances are slim, and its almost always fairly close.

    Does it count if you've had opponents walk away after the first turn???

    Yeah I don't see why not.

    If you had a massive real battle and your opponent just walked off, you'd win right? they aren't contesting your army so its flawless victory.

    I did once see a Goblin army get terror bombed and lose without even any actual combats having been fought.

    I've won games of the old Battletech tabletop game without losing a model... but that's not nearly as impressive as it sounds.

    I've lost 4 models and wiped out every model of the enemy. So not quite but close.

    The closest I got was playing against my friends Necron army. I was playing Thousand Sons, it was a 1750 points game, but I wiped him out completely while only losing a predator. Now, I have no idea how I lost very little, I guess I was rather lucky that game.

    The closest I've come is a loss of three Bretonnian knights in 1500 points.

    I've done similar, though it was closer to 10 (more like 8 but smeh). Considering this was with WEs and I had them annihilated Turn 4, it wasn't a bad victory.

    Otherwise, I'm pretty sure I've won a few games of LOTR, Mordheim and that without losing anyone.
