Have you ever had or seen an OMG moment happen in tabletop gaming that would have never happened in "reality"? Weather it was unbeleivable courage, an unstoppable grot, something like that. Maybe on the other end of things GK's charging into ratlings and inflicting no casulties, rolling 10 1's to save with termies.
One time I was at my local independent retailler picking up a box of cadians at the time people were playing LOTR in the gaming area, 2 hobbit sherrifs and a hobbit militia fought a cave troll (don't think it was trappedthey were all on one side of it with nothing behind it not sure though i play 40k), not only beating it but inflicting 3 wounds in 1 turn of fighting.

this isnt quite as OMG material. but a large units of Bretonians charged a unit of normal dwarf warriors. Inflicted no wounds. The dwarfs killed i think two of the knights. and the actually trappled the knights in pursuit
Rambo kroot. Shaper, the lone survivor of a unit of Kroot that had been wiped out by fire from a whirlwind and a dreadnaught. Ran round the back of said dreadnaught and rapid fired in to the back of it. Proceeded to roll 2 6s in a row to glance and destroy it. Then had the moment spoiled by being told it was venerable so I had to re-roll, still ended up immobilising it.
Rambo kroot then survived having a squad of marines rapid fire at him (3 wound shapers rock) and proceeded to knock off 2 marines in his own shooting phase.
In the next turn Rambo kroot was pretty much the only thing left of my army. He finally went down with most a space marine force shooting him, but not before a whirlwind shot scattered into a friendly unit and 2 plasma guns overheated and killed their operators.
2000AD's answer to all "How do VC deal with ..." questions: Forbidden Lore + 2 Power Stones.
Further answers will require more vodka.
I've once seen a person with two terminator squads fail to make any of his 2+ saves(there weren't that many people didn't give him a chance) but made all of his 5+ invulnerable saves which struck me as very odd.
How did he fail his 2+ but make his 5+? you get one or the other, at least thats my understanding.
On a note of my own, I had a game vs a DE playing mate of mine, he charged a squad of jetbikes into a squad of marines, the marines wiped the bikes out and didn't take a single casualty, then a squad of warriors charged in, not even the agonizer armed succubus made a wound, so they got slaughtered too. and the marines almost took out a talos aswell!
I have mentioned it before, but 3 of the marines from this squad were instantly promoted to my chosen squad, and kept the heads as trophys, and I'm not joking.

okay this really made me laugh. 3rd ed 40k DA vs BA. my friend had a land raider advancing towards me full of terminators, so I decided to throw my attack bike with the multi-melta forward to destroy it. we reached the shooting phase and I was about 12 and a quarter inches away. after much begging he declined saying that it wasn't in. gutted!
blew it up anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah sometimes when I play against brand new players, or against people just new to the rules, I'll "accidently" forget to waaagh at the critical moment, thinking "nah i can take it" and get totally run down.
This means that when they were shot at by my ravager the dark lance wound was saved(5+save used 1 saved) but the disintegrator shots failed to save(2+ save used 2 failed). then when the Wyches charged the aggoniser did nothing(5+saves pased 2 passed) and then his saves against the squad attacks failed to save(2+ he made 2 fails and 2 passes though). The remaining terminator ends up failing a morale check and gets run down by the wyches.
3rd edition, a chaos sorcerer dies from a round of shooting from a 10-strong unit of grots.
My Bloodthirster once got shived in the balls, and died from a drednought with both arms blowen off. Then a bloodletter with furey of Khorn managed to destroy it with rending.
