Ive set this thread up because ive had a number of odd games where the unfeaseable has actually happened and figured that there must be lots times this has happend to every one else. It can be anything, a horrific defeat/victory, an unexpected turn around, just post it here. ill get the ball rolling with this:
During a game against an outflanking tyranid force (loads of genestealers) i decided to try and stop the army from even turning up on the feild. By the second turn id run/driven 2/3 units of orks up both sides of the board and when his reserve rolls came,the genestealers had no where to go. due to rules we wernt allowed to come on from normal reserve, so all that could come on were some lictors, which i killed with a battle cannon. 1600 points of army never made it to the game!
I once turned Calgar into a Great Unclean one in an Appocalips battle.
We laughed... We laughed alot!!!
Lord of the nurgalings
In a 20,000pt apocalypse game in my local GW, i turned my opponents Chaplin,Dante,Yarrik and a Terminator Sgt into Chaos Spawn with my Dark Apostle! (sorcerer)
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.
~~ Surrender and serve me in life, or die and slave for me in death~~
in a regular 1500pt battle I once killed a terminator (at range) with a single spine gaunt, then I killed yet another (with the same spinegaunt) in close combat.
I had a game were a friends space 5 Marine Vet squad assaulted my Tau's Devil Fish with Melta bombs after I did a kind of fish of fury, he got a explodes result the blast wasn't big enough to hurt my guys but 3 of his died.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
Oh ive just got to put this one in because its brilliant
Opponents carnifex charges 10 spinegaunts on an objective. fex rolls 12 attacks total, misses with 9 and rolls 3 1's so does no wounds. 10 attacks then put 2 wounds on the fex, he rolls snake eyes. We laugh a bit, but assume it will go on to slaughter evrything else. He rolls for no retreat and gets a second snake eyes! thats 50 points killing over 170 points of fex without the charge! scince this game, he has never not taken reinforced chitin or extended carapace.

@Heirodule: Brilliant! Show those 'Stealers whose boss.
Two guys were playing a 2000pts game of FB, Ogre Kingdoms vs Empire. The lord Ogre Tyrant charges a regiment of 10 Handgunners and proceeds to roll 5 1's for his to-hit rolls. The Handgunners do nothing, but win the fight because they outnumber the Tyrant. The 250pts+ Tyrant fails his Ld check, runs away and proceeds to be overran by an 80pts unit of Handgunners.
This was in the previous edition of Fantasy. I was playing a "friend's" Bretonia with my Dwarfs. Don't know how this happened but it was a lone combat with one of my thanes vs. his paladin BSB on horse. I did a wound and he fled (don't really know if we played the right rules it was sort of a challenge and we only counted wounds) but when fleeing he rolled triple 1's! I caught him with my thane and ended the game with his BSB because his horse broke it's ankle when running away!
Repainting Orks not sure how many points yet
Warriors of Chaos shelved until further notice
In a 2v2 game with some friends a Space Marine Scout Sniper killed a Terminator in assault.
It was a close combat terminator with shield and power weapon.
We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
