    the luck of the adeptus?

    Now, given that Marines are just generally easier to roll for than most other armies I've played ( Tau, Eldar, IG), but last night my aprox, 1000pt force of marines stood up to 1500pts of IG with mercenary mutants. Now, I'll admit, I did lose, but not before dragging down 75% of my opponent's forces with me. I'd say out of the entire game, I rolled nicely 4/5 times, easy. What's better is the heroics my troops performed really WERE worthy of fluff (cmon people. a single librarian HQ, ALONE, against 9 dogs, and 10 hunkin' mutants with 28 total dice being rolled against me per assault! Or my 2 rhino's, which basically became turrets after the 3rd turn). But anyway, my uncanny luck last night aside, I wanted to open the discussion up to the topic of dice rolling:

    How lucky are you on average?

    Horribly unlucky. I get a squad of 12 Firewarriors, using doubleshot on a group of incoming SM... I will get in a total of one or two (if I'm really lucky!) wounds in, but then both wounds get saved. Meanwhile my freind playing the SM army never misses a single Krak missle shot against my hammerhead. So, after only a total of 7 marine casualties, and exterminating my entire 1300 point tau army, we switch sides. The firewarriors all of a sudden become super eliet SM hunters, killing one or two each volly. It seems like no matter what I do, I lose, simply because I cannot roll anything above a 3. (I want someone with a loooot of time on his hands to make a sort of rule system that doesnt rely so heavily on chance.)
    I play my 40k with friendly fire.
    Finally fixed the link!

    i usually have good luck, however, it always depends on what im rolling for. like if i'm rolling for saves, i do well, but if i'm rolling to wound, that's a different story.

    My luck varies quite a bit, I can't roll to wound with most things, my dark lances almost always fail me and so do my incubi but my wyches are golden, and my splinter weaponry is usually pretty good. My lord with pretty much always overdose on combat drugs or fail the shadowfield first time, or both but when shooting disintegrators on maximum fire, they usually hit.

    Well, i can be really lucky sometimes, but it always comes back at me. Although now the most annoying thing that happens to me (it happened to me heaps in one game) i would shoot an enemy tank with 40 gauss shots. on to hit. i get at least 15 sixes. then when armour penetration comes along, i roll 2 at the most. Although most of my problems are when my enemy just refuses to die, not to my bad luck.

    ... There's no place like 127.0.0.1

    For me it goes something like this.An 8 man squad fires their storm bolters. I get 14 hits and 8 or 9 wounds. It this point the other person looks like the licked a cats but. Then they roll to save and I might kill two odds are I kill one. I would like to kill more often but just to see the look on the other persons face,I will take being able to hit .:w00t:
    Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.

    My Chaos army was super lucky, but that may be because I soaked the dice in chicken blood before using them for the first time...

    generally, my bad rolling comes to me via turns. Instead of this whole game stuff, i get bad rolls every other turn. (terrible WBB rolls too....)

    like last game. We had all just come back to our game yeserdaym right? so it was my turn to role back for my 4 destroyers ( we were playing a 750 point game) and of course i roll and everything goes 3213 for dice rolls and they all die. Soon afterwards my warriors wewre faling to lasgun shots (AFTER FAILING THIE 3+ COVER SAVE!!!!!!!! TO AUTOCANNONS,......) and that was the end of that.

    Also however, later that game my lord got up from death, ran over to the tau commandewr, and slaughtered him. (we were playing 3 player FFA)

    Well, I get plenty of infantry kills and everything. However, tanks need at least 3 lascannons. For instance, I have one lascannon pointed at the side of a hammerhead. I roll to hit. A 1!!!! No!!!!

    Also, autocannon shots to the rear of a devilfish, I roll a four for everything. That's barely enough. :sleep: Not bad.

    However, I would advise this. Get at least 8 terminators in close combat with Tau commanders or suits or tanks. Very good results.
