what gaming superstitions do you have mine is that your units need to gain experience and will do poorly in their first few games

All of my dice spend the night before an important match in a tumbler of Crown Royal.

They are not to be washed off before being used!

After a few test rolls they aren't so sticky anymore. Everytime I've had one stick a little it's rolled in my favor.

Isn't it amazing how no matter where a seemingly innocent conversation begins here, it will always lead back to booze?

I'd go along with the one in the battle report WD286.
That the words Missile Laucher, contains the word "Miss" Therefore thou shall miss with your Missile Lauchers, but thoust Rocket Lauchers shall hit home with all the might of the Emperor.

Apart from that I don't think I have any small ones. I do tend to treat ALL my minis well though. I.E I dont just lob all my plastic marines in a carry along box. I treat all my minis with respect, in hopes that they will do well.

Ok my supersticion...
I have a feeling that sertain have an aura of luck over them, i point this out because there are some opponents I have never won against. No matter what i do, the dice never come out in my favour.

Other supersticion: Curse the dice... and curse the opponents dice...For me it works most of the time...

what kind of hex do you use?

my superstition is that praying to god before my "see who goes first" rolls doesnt help i get 1's because he likes to smite me. but when rolling a wound with a railgun he shall grant me with a 2+ on a space marine special charcter

i have a gaming superstition
whenever my orky friend picks up the dice say wibbo ma nibbo
my friend then says something like "stop" or "that's annoying"
then he forgets to roll the dice and his orky unit becomes useless for the turn
(use this only once per turn and on the best unit your opponent has)0

Back on topic please!

What hex I use...hmmm.
I just threaten to destroy or burn the dice when I get home from the battle...
It works most of the times... though I have scrapped a few dice by now... :rolleyes:

I treat my minis with respect, in the hope they will repay the favour, also I only use one colour of dice, which ever matches the colours of the Army i'm playing - Eldar I would use white (It represents the Wraithbone for my Eldar army), for Orks I would use green (This one is obvious right Hakbash?), Blood Angels, World Eaters i would use red (For blood) etc...

The older models you have are better, and if you hit alot then you won't wound anything. It´s almost as if 80% hit then only 20% will wound. Its rather annoying since my guys are excellent marksmen.

i got a couple, your units are like your life line every time one deis your life shortens, every unit counts so dont waste em.

I dont go into a battle assuming i will win, that in my opinion is very bad luck, therefore i prepare the best i can and never assume i will win.

My units have personalities (Feth all of you who say im insane!) and i treat them accordingly to their personalities

oh and my final one is that my dice are kept in with my preist so that he may bless them

having dice that look good helps,lol. Also its odd that an important piece will last though the whole game like my Tyrant will make all saves til the end of the game. He has only died once due to great ruling in the end of the game with a power klaw(or whatever the orks call it)

my superstition sio that if u think u will roll a one then yu will. think positive! likeif u say, watch me roll a one...yu will.

if u roll all yur dice at one time then they wont roll as good if u roll in sections. instead of rolling 20 dice at a time i will rolld 2 sets of ten ro 4 sections of 5

the ones hte miss or fail tow ound i keep off to the side so they can "recharge"

when shooting at nids shout bugkill when you use assult cannons and they will kill comply. I have a stupid and potentialy battle losing fear of having my blood claws getting killed by grots in cc. so i allwas shoot the pesky little things instead of assulting them. i know it is stupid but i cant bear the thougt that a mighty space wolf can get clubbed to death by a grot waving a stick.
