View Full Version : Your Unluckiest model?

I was going to post in the other thread, but I just could not for the life of me think of a lucky model in my army. They generally all die or fail in doing things.
Thus, I want to know what your unluckiest model is.

Mine would have to be the 'ard boy's nob. He frequently fluffs all his PK attacks, and when he does manage to hit, the number of 1s to wound is appalling.

Other unlucky things include my Russ, which can't hit for toffee and when it does rolls about 4 1s and the rest inevitably make their save.
My MA nobs rarely make their inv. saves and whenever they're up against a hidden PF, my opponent allways hits and wounds with all his attacks.

My flash gits are also veteran 'wall-lickers' (as we generally refer to any unit who complete garbles the action they take) and despite having 8 rokkits pointed at various things they frequently all miss.
The wagons also have a tendency to crash themselves against any terrain piece I come across and get vaped by the cheaky single plasma gun shot at the end of my opponent's shooting phase when he says 'what's left?.... oh.. well I might as well'.

I'd have to say that my least lucky unit is my Red Terror, followed by my single lictor. The Red Terror generally doesn't make it to combat, but on the odd occassion he does, he usually botches his first roll. He's rarely ever useful for anything but causing my opponent to worry about yet another monstrous creature. My lictor generally makes it into combat, but he dies at the hands of the wimpiest things, such as firewarriors.

My Tyranid Heirophant - guaranteed to die on Turn 1. Opponent had a Warhound with VMB and PlasmaBlast Gun (or somesuch) and basically, it had 1 single wound remaining after the Titan fired. After that, it was simply a matter of a meagre Lascannon popping off a shot and ending it there and then.

Probably my Company Master. I assaulted a guard command squad, killed a guardsmen, then took a bunch of wounds for being fearless, and died.

My MA WB and his 5 MA nobs assaulted a Guard infantry unit... and lost...

Then they failed the Ld 10 test.

Then they rolled a one for the sweeping advance.

Then they all died and I stood there for a while before going for a smoke outside to cool off.

For me its a lobba in my force every game EVERY GAME it dies or the crew run off or it gets pinned for ever or it misses every turn

My Chaos Landraider went through a streak of a least a half-dozen games getting blown up on my first turn. I had to completely re-paint it to change it's luck.

Also, My Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor Lord seems unable to win any combat. He got taken down by *******' Guardians last time.

Cheers, Filthy

hey Dribble.... You are the unluckiest model because you haven't been able to make a 5 slotted Judge how long?

Seal.

I don't think I can specify a single unlucky model. Usually the bad luck comes straight from my own hands, with large quantities of ones at all the wrong times, and sixes for my leadership tests.

I've decided to tempt fate by assembling a four plasma cannon devastator squad, led by a veteran sergeant with combi-plasma. I can't wait for the first time I deploy them and roll five ones to hit.

That'd be my 13th company Rune priest; the single unluckiest, no, Traitorous model in my collection. Before I eventually fired his **** and replaced him with a wolf priest, this model would consistently fail, usually in the most spectacular way possible almost every game I played.

If there was an enemy unit, board edge or anything impassible anywhere near the point I was gating too, my rune priest would deviate right next to it. Not on it, but right next to it, as if my rune priest wanted me to waste time trying to cram as many survivors onto the template (3rd edition), and then watch as they were blasted apart at leisure by whatever my opponent had nearby at the time.

He was also equipped with a combi-melta, which with his talent for rolling ones was a silly mistake, the sting of which was only lessened by the thought that he could have had a combi-plasma.
Of course when he wasn't missing his shots or deviating onto enemy troops, my rune priest would be failing his psychic checks at key moments, which was probably a relief for the hapless grey slayers who so often gated with him.

I swear, that rune priest was working for my opponent. I hated it and clearly it hated me back.


I also had a vindicare assasin who failed to kill anything at all for an entire game, but that was only one game, and he got replaced shortly after. ;)

Veteran sergeant thunder hammer, nearly always gets killed, but he is one of my most consistently used models so I'll let him off :)

I can't say I've had any really unlucky models but my friend did have a squad of Storm Boyz that never got to their target or always rolled ones for treacherous terrain or something. He used to call them his Cursed Co. It was hilarious. That and his Entire IG army seemed to be working against him all the time. I think they were rebels and he just didn't know it. He sold the army to me and it did fine and had quite a good win/lose ratio. Strange.

Any one in my army with a plasma weapon...
I have learned now to fire bolt shots and other shots befor plasma to make sure I really need to fire or not.

I have a sergeant who kills himself every game with his plasma pistol. I'm getting pretty sick of it. lol

Any of my heavy weapon DA

especially the missile launchers in my Dev squad

I have to say that my lascannon Havoc is my unluckiest model in ten matches of six turns each he has hit only four times, rest of the time he rolls one's.

so four out of sixty turns. my peers have nothing to fear from him

Tehkonrad
06-12-2007, 08:09
hmm maybe he should remember to load his weapon next time not just throw firecrackers at the enemy :p

In my marine force it is a split between my master and sniper scouts.
The master has 4 power weapon attacks that always miss. I maybe get 1 hit per turn.

The snipers couldn't hit the side of a barn the way they shoot and asking them to wound on a 4+ is obviously asking too much.

In Tyranids it is the broodlord and lictor. Both have a decent number of rending attacks on the charge and tend to hit first (or try to hit). I hardly ever rend and then roll kak for the rest of the attacks that magically hit.

I am finding my nid army just needs 2-3X more dice rolls than my opponnents just to do the same damage....very sad.

My Hammerhead has never killed something with a solid shot.

It's owned tons of Scarabs, Guardians, etc. with the large blast, but I have yet to inflict any kind of damage with the solid shot, vehicle or model.

At least my opponents are still afraid of it :D

My snipers have the same problem, I also play Orks so i'm kinda used to it though. Ironically though my Orks tend to hit with shooting then clearly just flail wildly in combat and miss everything.

My rough riders never killed more then 2 marines on the charge. That's 12 Str 5 power weapon attacks mind you. They seldomly make it past hitting, and if they do they barely wound.

My fire prism are pretty terrible aswel. BS 4 means nothing to them.

I don't know what my unluckiest model is. It just seems to be a bad combination of rolling bad at key moments. Well, there is the Vindicare, who always fails to wound, and whenever I use one of the special rounds, he ****** misses, guaranteed. Oh, and my newly christened excorcist tank (Modified Rhino with havoc launchers.) Fired every single turn of the game, killed exactly squat.

Last two games, one particular Commissar fled the battle, I'm transferring him to a penal batallion.

i would definitely say my chaos dreadnaught, as he always manages to shoot up my veichles

hroar
06-12-2007, 13:30
My chaos dreadnaught spent the first 2 turns of his first battle in fire frenzy, armed with 2 CCW and combi bolters. Which isn't all that bad, but the next battle it was the next 3 turns.

He promptly got traded out for daemonettes, never looked back.

I havent played in a long while now, but Id say my unluckiest model was my callidus assasin (the one with the phase sword). She died at the end of nearly every assualt I put her in. I mainly kept her in to move my brothers insanly hardcore devestator squad out of los from my Leman russ tanks.

Those devistators killed this one leman russ tank I had nearly every time in the first 2 turns (usually the first)

TheOverlord
06-12-2007, 15:22
Well... it isn't really my model, nor is it 40k, but I think it's hilarious enough to post.

My friend's warrior priest failed his LD 9(10? I forget) 6 times in a row.

That is right. 6 times. He fled off the battlefield from 24 inches away. It was hilarious to see. He later executed the Priest for lack of faith using 20 odd handgunners.

Twas' a glorious day :D

Laser lance wielding Autarch on a jetbike charges the squad of devastators (6 of them).

He fires his fusion gun on a charge and misses. He has 6 str 6 power weapon attacks hitting on 3's - he misses 5 times. Than he fails to wound with his single attack that hit. Thaen he receives 1 wound back and fails his 3+ save. Then he looses assault and fails his morale check of 10... And despite having I 6 gets caught by the devastators and killed - fantastic...

Cheers

My unluckiest model has to be my plasmacannon marine. I cant think of a game where he has survived to the end and not died from an overheat.

Dribble Joy
06-12-2007, 19:48
hey Dribble.... You are the unluckiest model because you haven't been able to make a 5 slotted Judge how long?

45 so far, no 5 slotters.

Anyway, my smaller buggy also has spent several games of at least 6 turns hitting nothing, despite being twin-linked.

My flayed ones do terrible, move through cover my ass, 3 inch on average. Close combat specialists my ass, 0 wounds caused average. Also my opponent always gets them below half strength so they don't score.

Repzik
06-12-2007, 21:41
My Broad side squad. they ALWAYS die without doing much. ill put it this way, the best thing theyve killed before dieing is a baslisk, and thats it. its not my placement, its my rolling.

Gaius_Baltar
07-12-2007, 02:22
One of my named guardsmen "Sonatra" seems to make his squad die the fastest in any game... I'd say about 85% of games, the squad he's assinged to makes less than 80% of their saves, when with Guardsmen, or more likely 4+ cover saves, it should be closer to 50% according to probability.

Yeah, my art has been pretty unlucky too. :D

07-12-2007, 04:24
Far and away unlucky was my chainsaw weilding zealot from my redemption gang for necromunda. Every, and I do mean every game he went down to someone with a knife or a sword (read 'a bigger knife') He was even put out of action by a juve who had only a knife and a slug pistol...

This went on for more than a dozen battles until his injuries started to rack up and he ended up being killed (perhaps even eaten) by a genestealer. Damn specialist scenarios and the genestealer cult getting something scary...

You know, the gang didn't win a game till he died, and from then on, they went pretty well. Perhaps he was their pariah. Or albatross even....

I really don't have an ultimately unlucky model, but when playing a small 3k vs 3k Apoc battle one day with my 'nids against Guard and SM, with a modified scenario similar to the newest ones in WD, on my last turn my most points heavy Carnifex and Hive Tyrant held the most important objective (if I had this last one it didn't matter that I didn't have the other 2, because the main was worth 3).

What happened was a round of shooting that I managed to fail every 2+ save and 4+ cover save imaginable, bringing both down from maximum wounds to dead from shots that should've only caused 2 - 3 wounds at most between them...

Any marine that holds a las cannon. Never hits. Usually 1 of 10 shots...bleah....So i have rely on my predator annihilators.

SilverScorpion
07-12-2007, 08:40
I can't hit with any weapon that uses a krak missile,be it a missile launcher (no problem with frags though??!) cyclone,hunter killer or hellstrikes
My marines put the MISS in Missile

I built a Squiggoth last year for a 4 way pre-Apoc type of game.... It got blown to bits before I even got my first turn since I went last.... All the players, for whatever reason, aimed at it and blew it up.

I guess they don't appreciate hard work?

I haven't played with it since.

I have a Dreadnaught who's chief merit seems to be blowing up in the most spectacular fashion possible and taking most of my army with it.

LususNaturae

My farseer. The past four games he has rolled double-ones on his first psychic test of the game, and died to PotW in three of them.

Also, my dual Sniperfexes can't hit the broad side of a Leman Russ. Same goes for my Warp Blast Zoans. I think each Zoan averages 2 hits per game and the fexes get 2 for Straglers and 3 for VC's

Which is why i've never been convinced that Nid shooting is as good as people say it is...

Warp_touched
10-12-2007, 05:10
Definatly my damn Dark Reapers. Fire at a bunch of drones, miss first volley, roll 1s and 2s second, and then get obliterated by Crisis suits deepstriking. I figure that was just bad luck but nooo...

They proceded to 'watch' as inquisition stormtroopers charged halfway across the board and slaughtered them in the last shooting and assault phase. Once again, no survivors.

I just use my prisms for heavy support now.

Wraithlord.
who ever I play against thinks hes a huge problem and he gets wiped by turn 2 and by then all he has killed is 1 marine with his star cannon....
I think he has only had 1 good game where he got combat with some termis and managed to get his points back before getting owned.

sqigglett
10-12-2007, 06:34
Its not one model, but my fire dragon squad. Every single game they all end up dead by the end, in my new army list i don't have them, but when i used them the only game they survived in was against guard, where they performed spectacularly(sp?) and blew up a chimera, a demolisher, and weapon destroyed (earthshaker cannon) on a bassilisk :eek:

So, when they do live, they do alot, but they never do live more than two turns.

I seem to have a tradition with my models. Whatever is my latest/greatest conversion or paintjob will die first time it is fielded, first turn, to the first weapon that is shot at it.

My Land Raider Crusader against 3rd ed Main rulebook (pre-codex) tyranids. Venom cannon shot at it, 5+ to hit, 6+ to glance, 6+ to kill. BLAM.

Got even worse with my landspeeder tornado with heavy flamer. I moved it into difficult terrain and it exploded.

I'd say the unluckiest model in my army has to be Chaplain De'Vir though. That guy has a severe allergy to Tau combat drones. It doesn't matter what he's equipped with, every time he comes accross a unit of those flying dustbin lids he gets beaten up by them in close combat.
