I thought there was a thread about this already, but cant seem to find it, so heres a new one.
I made a really great (read as 'lucky as can be!') kill yesterday and wondered what others favourite ever kill was.
Playing a friendly 2k points game, my Greenskins against Warriors of Chaos.
After deployment we are both pretty much 2 big lines of nastiness just waiting to pummel into each other.
I had a unit of 25 Boyz, 50 Night Gobbos, 30 Savage Big Uns, 20 BOrcs, 5 Wolf Riders and a few heroes/lords scattered about.
My opponent had 3 large units of Chaos Warriors and a unit of Knights, again with heroes/lords scattered between them.
I deployed my Wolf Riders to my left flank, I usually just use these for mis-direction etc...
I use their vanguard move to push them forward a little, my opponent gets first turn and moves his blocks forward.
My first turn, Wolf unit fails animosity and has to declare a charge on a unit of Warriors.
To make matters worse, the charge takes them right through the middle of a blood forest!
Although I do get to charge the flank, I lose 2 models from the dangerous terrain test.
I now have 3 Wolf riders up against the flank of some very amused looking Chaos Warriors, I'm not expecting this to go well!
Chaos Warriors go first and would you believe it, completely miss with every swing!
Wolfies get to try and nip them and get nothing but a bit of cloth.
Goblins come out swinging and actually manage to kill a Warrior!
So combat res - I get Charge, Flank, 1 Wound. Opponent gets 2 ranks. I win by 1!!
I'm still not expecting much, he's in range of his General and BSB.
First roll - 11.
Re-roll - 12!
Warriors are off and running, roll a 5 and the Wolf Boys happily run them down (although overun right into the next block who happily swat them away).

Favourite kill? That Gnoblar tossing a spoon into a Tzeentch Chaos Warriors eye was pretty damn funny!
1/3*1/6*1/3*5/6 = 1.54% chance of a wound. Hilarious.
If someone helps you, rep them.
In a votewar you don't vote on a single match, you vote on the entire round. Got that?
My Spear chukkas, 2 shots, one killed all 5 of the rear rank of a unit of inner circle knights, the second the whole front rank inc the captain leading it!
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.
~~ Surrender and serve me in life, or die and slave for me in death~~
my favorite is paladin with virtue of heroism getting cornered by a chaos lord on a dragon, chaos lord first missed all his attacks cept for one which i saved, then the dragons breath weapon only killed my horse, then the dragon itself caused one wound, paladin strikes back and one shot kills the the chaos dragon with heroic killing blow, epic, turned that paladin into a lord
First (and last) Tournament I played in after 8th ed dropped;
Took my beloved VC's, led by the beautiful, vain & ruthless Lady Khendra, chosen handmaiden of Queen Neferata.
Game 1: first turn, Khendra my Lv3 fails to cast with her good book, then rolls 2 dice for harmonic convergence... Result is double 6's. Roll the miscast, Khendra explodes. Next turn, army crumbles...
Game 2: first turn, Khendra tries 2 dice, this time going for iceshard blizzard on a big unit of chaos warriors. Rolls double 6's, and explodes again.
Game 3: second turn, Khendra's bloodbus has charged a unit of saurus, intent on breaking through the lizzie lines and then rolling them up from the back... Khendra gets the good book to go off, (yay ASF & re-rolls to-hit!), tries for iceshard blizzard on 2 dice & rolls double 6's yet again!!! Of corse, she explodes, along with the blood knights... (again)
So out of 3 games, I beat myself 3 times! at least my army shows real consistancey!
Dwarf lord with mighty runes of mighty bashin and other nasty stuff against a well meaning NG lord. Dwarf lord misses all four attacks. No worries he has re rolls. Four ones then look up at him...
Dwarf Lord: Hah! No worries, that puny little night goblin couldn't hit me even if i stood stock st... *last words of the great dwarf lord before the NG lopps his head off*
Two skinks standing 1" in front of a giant who failed his charge, this was 7'th edition. Shaking hands shoot up darts against its head. One goes up his nose and punctures the brain, killing him outright and the now dead giant falls and kills six wolf riders to his right.
I love how underdogs sometimes suprise you (A)
Everyone who plays warhammer will never gamble with dice rolls since we all know that if you have a 2+ its a 70% of being a 1 ^^ just because the universe loves a good joke
Experiment: You're not called Neil are you? My mate who plays VC, his Lord always implodes on the first turn sending his army into utter crumbling chaos. So much so his built his list around it happening!!!
Have you tried just not casting magic with your Lord?? Get a cheap hero Vamp to do the risky business
