I had a rather interesting battle against some Dark Angels a few days ago and some crazy things happened during the game so I wanted to ask everyone else:
What is the funniest/coolest/most random/etc moment you've ever had during a battle?
My sniperfex shot its barbed strangler at a Dreadnaught trying to take the thing out before it could wipe out any of my broods. Well the scatter roll didn't look very good since it was a 12 pointing away from his Dreadnaught and his firing line. Well it ended up almost dead center over the hover ship (skimmer with two giant rocket pods on it) well I hit and destroyed the thing...heh three cheers for scatter rolls.
Also during the same game my winged hive tyrant fired all six of its shots at a terminator squad trying to kill off some of them before melee and I didn't even score a single hit. Same turn my brood of termigaunts open fire all but one hit and all but five of those wound...my termigaunts took out the entire termi squad. The giant monstrous creature lands with a heavy thud as its thick leathery wings fold behind its back, a deafening roar and the guns open fire on the terminator squad....the marines are more then a little surprised as every round seemed to fly off and miss horribly. Counting themselves lucky for the Emperor's grace they didn't notice the small guants swarming around the tyrant and open fire ripping the brave terminators apart with the large volley of fire. Just the idea that one of the gaunts would smirk up at the tyrant made me laugh.
Ok so what are some of your stories?
"Ohm nom nom nom"
Well pretty much all of my insane experiences involve my genestealers going on massive killing rampages.
The best one was 4 genestealers tore through: 1 Drednaught, 5 bikers, 8 Tactical Marines, and 5 Terminators
Other than that umm... my flying Dakka tryrant performs like a beast every game. Oh wait, thats not a crazy spree of luck they are just really that awesome : P
Well two more stealer tales!
First one - an opponent I was playing in combat patrol was using Sisters of Battle and his almost unkillable seraphime with their flamers! He charged my squade of 6 or so stealers whilst they were holding the objective and killed off all but two - he then ran away but stayed on the objective (it was a tower so he went up a level) Needless to say the stealers follwed next turn - and down went one of them and a serephime. Next turn he attacks and runs away - losing a serephime and the stealer survives -- stealer charges again and another serephime dies - then stealer dies. But 3 almost alone is good enough (plus those serephime are killed rarely in combat partol!)
Next tale was a massive 300 point 7 people game played on a very small board (loads of fun with stealers, they killed off nearly two and a half odd players before being shot to death). By the end of the game one stealer was left standing in a fight to the death with a Guard comissar - that went on at deadlock for 3 turns more than the end of the game (we kept going to see who one - the stealer lost, but still 5 or so turns of deadlock in total

Genestealer bloodbath worthy of Khorne after my opponent moved his grey knight squads up to try and use incinerators. HAHAHA!
Mine was actually last night. I played a 1500pt annhilation match against and eldar army using the DoW deployment. So I got lucky and won the roll-off. I set up my troops right at the edge with my ripper swarms in front and some fleshgaunts behind them. My flying dakka-tyrant flys in and is about 15" away from a ranger squad. I roll all my hits and then am reminded that I have to check for vision first! So needless to say, I fail my vision check (two 1's, so could only see 6"). So I kill nothing first round. He brings his forces in (which is five groups of rangers I think as well as some hawk-guys that bomb the crap outta me when they deepstrike). So I lose some gaunts and some ripper swarms due to the bombings. I start bringing up my sniper-fex on my left flank to use the barbed strangler on his mass of troops. He makes his reserve rolls and brings in some scorpion warriors on my flank and ties up my sniperfex with close combat. So I'm pissed now my sniperfex is almost useless. Well... the sniperfex takes out the entire group of 10 scorpion warriors! Due to some awful rolling on his part, he can't wound the beast at all (upgraded to T7 and gave him scything tail for some extra attacks). The sniperfex destroys his CC scorpion warriors and only takes one wound... which it regenerates back the next turn! Haha... that was a blast. I absolutely destroyed his army... only lost one 'thrope and a handfull of gaunts. Dakka-fex's + Dakka-tyrants = Lots of troop killing.
I have two favorites, both involve crazy things going on.
the first was against an imp guard list, my first time against them. Lined up in front of me was two lemon russes and a pair of hellhounds with about 9 las cannons backing them up. (in a 1750 list). I win the roll for turn one and let loose my two sniper fexes. In the first round of shooting I destroyed (that's right destroyed) one hell hound and one of the russes. (the other two tanks were hiding). Yes, that's two sixes on glances.
The second one was against witch-hunters with attached sistsers. On turn 2 I had a squad of 8 stealers way out in front that was reduced to 2 by fire from 20 rapid firing sisters of battle. These two brave souls assaulted the sisters, killed two, and only lost one in return attacks. Seeing the fearsome power of the genestealers the sisters turned and ran (failed an LD 10 test, twice). My one remaining genestealer killed them all. That's right, 1 stealer killed 18 sisters on his own.
~2k of genestealery goodness
~1750points of terminator goodness

more witty remarks to come.
Deep striking spore mine taking out the Monolith. It was just wrong on so many levels, and he couldn't believe it.
An ethereal being taken out and half the Tau player's army subsequently running away (psychic choir).
DE wyches being half an inch short of a charge. The subsequent gaunt shooting killed them good.
Ninjafex getting the charge on Shadowsun after devilfex took out the drones.
Every time I overwhelmingly crush a SMurf army. 'Tis a good day.

Playing against Chaos Marines, targeting a termie squad with abbadon. In 3 turns i placed 21 blast templates over this squad (yay 7 warriors with deathspitters) absolutely none of them went off target. I either rolled a hit, or snakeyes. 21 times!!!
The other was against SMurfs. Being that we were on a small board, he had no wish to see my CC fex move at all. It would have been in CC on turn two due to the size of the board. KNowing of the fex's 2+ armor save, he elects to shoot it with 5, yes 5 plasma cannons. What does he roll for these shots? ALL 1s!!!!! not kidding. I laughed soo hard.
i had a good one where i was playing chaos space marines. he rolled doubles for his deapstriking termies with lord and i got to choose where to place them. i placed them exactly where he origanaly wanted to. within warp blast range of 2 zoanthropes and charge range of 2 tyrants, 1 canifex and 8 geenstealers.......
They died horably.....
