    Sad day for the eldar-Tank shock vs dragons

    Just had to post an amusing story of last night's incident.

    He'd flew up his WS and hopped out with his 6 dragons and his exarch. He proceeded to fry a rhino of mine causing it to wound a nearby marine (who made his save).

    Next turn, I charged the rhino, declaring a tank shock through his unit of dragons. He passed his tanks shock test, and declared a Death or Glory attack in return. Picked a dragon, rolled 2d6 for armour pen. Rolled an amazingly high number (since even snake eyes would glance with tankhunters). He then proceeded to roll a 6 on the penetrating table. Things aren't looking good at this point (for him).
    He proceeds to roll 6 out of 7 wounds (4+). Ouch!
    Then it really goes south for him. He picks up the dice and proceeds to fail all 6 saves, killing his whole unit except for his exarch.

    My 55pt rhino made it's points back, and crippled his poor unit in the most amusing thing I've seen in years. Probably rates in the top 5 most funny 40k moments in 12 years for me.

    Needless to say, after that I mopped up the rest of the pieces, as his dice had simply abandoned him.

    My armies:
    16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
    7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
    6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
    4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
    1,500+ of Legion (just started)

    Last night, I had 6 Fire Dragons pop out of a Falcon right in front of a Termi squad with 2 assault cannons. I manage to only hit twice... and then only wound once...

    The return fire sucked...

    10 man squads

    That's why I only do 10 man squads and never "death or glory" unless the fella is dumb enough to try to 'road-kill' a wraithlord. (Especially with fire dragons!)

    My dice love to turn a good chance into a bad risk.

    Your friend should learn, in the end fickle dice made me a better player, I have to make moves that are almost 100% guaranteed to work or my dice will betray me.

    have fun!
    Have fun,

    Actually on that note. When blasting a vehicle with a unit do you roll the results all at once or one at a time.

    I.E if you penetrate with 4 dragons do you roll four times and apply each result before the next, or roll at at once and take the highest(more explosions)

    It doesn't really matter. The end results are still going to be the same.

    Rules wise, you roll all dice together. That said, it makes no difference so long as you apply the hits simultaneously.

    So, with a bunch of dragons standing point blank, you wouldn't stop after the first pen destroyed it with a 4, as you could get a 6 with your later shots, inflicting casualties.
