This is a subject I think we’re all familiar with. Sometimes the dice just hate you. Maybe you didn’t get them a card for thier birthday, or you didn’t sacrifice enough (chocolate) bunnies, or whatever, but they despise you.
For me, it’s usually just a bad roll here or there. But recently I enjoyed a streak of it in one game. Playing my chaos marines I needed to make 4 morale checks (one of them a re-roll, one a regroup check) all in the space of about 2 turns. Being from shooting, they were at Ld10. So there’s only a 1 / 12 chance of failing any given one of them.
Well, I failed 3 in a row to kick things off. The odds of getting those rolls? Something like 1,728 to 1. And, being chaos marines, we are well aquiainted with fear and decided to take our slightly-below-half unit with attached HQ running off the board with no chance to rally. And this was the evil mean Khorne marked squad, too. The havoc squad ran too, however, they got thier heads back in the game on the next morale check to rally.
We weren’t done fleeing in terror before the awesome might of the space faries and thier magic wands (of DEATH) – I mean, Eldar. Not long after Some termies decided enough was enough and made tracks as well.
The lesson here? Icon of Chaos Glory is my new best friend!
also, sacrifice more chocolate bunnies on the altar of diciness (also known as my mouth). It may not work, but it’ll taste good!
