We have all had them where you pull off the most insane lucky/loaded dice rolls and do somthing just so awsome you have to repeat it.
My story. My inquistor lord went up to 20 orcs and pulled off some nice rolls with his Evicerator and pulls off 4 kills. using 'his will be done' and counting 8 towards combat. the orcs dont make a single wound and have to take 8 'no retreat' rolls and all of them fail having my leader kill 12 orcs in close combat by himself
My friends story was he had a warlock take on 2 Pentiant engines for 3 turns making 9 4+ invurable saves in a row, killing one and destroying an arm on the other one.
Fear the Fun.
My best 'epic' moment was waaay back in 2nd ed 40k, a squad of imperial guard were bunched in an alleyway and blocked in by an ork scorcha bike (which was about to torch their collective asses).
The only weapon they had that could penetrate it's armour was the sergeant's bolt pistol. He proceeded to pop it's front wheel, causing it to be blown into the air and flung half way back across the board to land on (and kill) some random ork special character that was cowering out of LOS behind a building.
This seems like it'd be more at home in the general discussions forum. We have had a few of this thread there before.
Rork: In the dark future of the 41st millennium there is only friendship.
Fenrir: and magic.
Kaiser-: My Little Chaos Marine, Friendship is Heresy?
Maybe not quite Epic but anyway:
During a recent objective game v Space Marines a mass combat erupted in the middle of the table. All bar 1 squad of Bezerkers survived from my side and the 2 remaining Bezerkers ran towards the enemy objective defended by a full tactical squad. The champion got shot down leaving just a standard Bezerker all on his lonesome against a power weapon weilding sgt and his mates. The bezerker charged and then proceded to somehow survive 3 rounds of combat against the marines until the end of the game contesting the objective and winning the game for me! (I had my other objective held)
And one more:
With the previous Chaos codex-my Chaos Lord teleported in but scattered. Even worse his Terminator buddies got lost in the warp leaving him facing a hungry Hive Tyrant on his own.
Things looked ill until he played his trump card and summoned a unit of Bloodletters....and they then procedded to pull the big nasty bug apart. (typically in the combat the Chaos Lord missed with all his attacks and got wounded before the Bloodletters slaughtered the Hive Tyrant-but Chaos Lord takes all the credit )
The same Chaos Lord killing 38 (ish) Guardsmen on his own in one game.
Currently play: 4000+ of Black Legion
I'm new to w40k, however I have had one pretty 'epic' moment.
Controlling a IG army against Tyranids. A carnifex (down to one wound) took out all but one guardsman in a squad. This lone guardsman managed to roll two sixes in a row* and the 'fex rolled a 1! No-one could believe it. I will probably remember that for the rest of my gaming!
*It was later establised that I should have rolled to counter-assault as it was a monstrous creature. However, this was brought up after the rolls were made (he forgot about it).
My mates Blood Angels army in 4th ed was getting pounded by CSM but somehow managed to get a draw when a lone veteran sergent with a power fist and plasma pistol killed over 400pts in 3 turns. He is now called Rambo and is targeted 1st by everyone.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
Last week, I was playing a game of 40k against a friend, me playing Dark Angels and he borrowing my Dark Eldar. So, he has a Warp Beast pack heading towards Sammael, Master of the Ravenwing, who takes shoots his plasma cannon and storm bolter at them, leaving only one beast and the Beastmaster. Now, the remaining two models take 2 rounds getting there due to epically bad difficult terrain rolls, but since they are small and dinky, and there's a squad of Wyches coming up hot on their heels, I ignore them. They finally pull off the charge, and Sammael promptly kills one beast, leaving the Beastmaster alone. Through the next two rounds, the Wyches are steadily getting closer, while Sammael and the dinky little beastmaster battle it out.
The Beastmaster wins. A dinky little model worth less than a Warrior with Dark Lance takes out whopping Sammael, Master of the Ravenwing, a model with a 4+ invul and 3 wounds. By now we're laughing and cheering at this little display of heroism. And then, my friend decides that the Beastmaster isn't done. By now, only a Dreadnought is left on the table, and so the beastmaster charges it. He rolls 6, 6, 6, and immobilizes it, and then goes on to destroy its missile launcher, before finally dying, leaving his Dark Lancers free to finish up the job, a good 6" beyond the dread's autocannon range.
A Beastmaster has one wound and one attack on its profile, with a 6+ armour save and no invul. Its only advantage is carrying a power weapon.
