    You can use tactics and strategy to try and stack the odds of dice rolling in your favour. However if you have upset the dice gods it won't matter if you are Wellington himself you are going down.

    50-50 I play Dark Eldar, Light Infantry Guard, Alpha Legion, and Infantry only Space Wolves. As you can expect this makes Deployment one of the most important parts of the game for me. You have to be take into account alot of angles and cover so you don't get shot up on the first turn, and do everything you can to screw their deployment up. And then you have to play each turn carefully so your opponent doesn't take control of you're glaring weaknesses.

    And only then can you start praying to the dice gods.

    According to probabilty. Most people will have some bad dice rolls and some good ones and be okay all round. I think that unless the dice rolls are really bad or really good it's going to be strategy that wins the game. However, if your strategy is really poor not even good dice rolls will help, and if your dice rolls are really poor not even the best strategy will work.

    I went 50/50. Sometimes you roll good and then sometimes you roll bad.
    Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.

    Many strategies are very risky because they rely on a single dice roll. I voted for 50:50. 40K is a strategy game

    Its all about dice rolling even though you can use tactics to make victory more in your favour, if you are not rolling well then your pretty much doomed unless your opponant is doing just as bad.

    quite franky....its almost all about stratagy. I went for 25:75 because even if the dice gods hate you (which they often do on occasion) its the general who can out flank or out think his/her opponent who wins a game. Ill admit though, the dice can help some times:yes:

    i say it is the strategy cuz the dice normally are even like you may roll 3 1s for saving termies but you also rolled 3 5-6s for the other's invunerable saves.
