Last night I got to roll 129 Lasgun shots from my conscripts after successfully passing a `rank fire`order for them! I think I got 20 wounds and 17 dead orks out of the deal! That`s the most I have ever rolled for one unit shooting or assaulting.

I think around 40~50 hits with my harlequins.

I don't recall, it was probably in a CC with one of my nid units though.

I don't recall the actual numbers (old Ork Mob Up rule), but I've played games where we literally used buckets (yes pails, like for water) of dice for Ork attacks. :D

44 dice.
20 man guardian squad with shuriken catapults.
1 warlock with shuriken pistol
Scatter laser.
Farseer firing shuriken pistol.

Then re-rolling misses and wounds.

About 75 for a charging bigmob of shoota boys. Right after rolling almost the same amount for them shooting before charging. Woohoo!

96 attacks for slugga boyz; needless to say that the nob didn't get his swings in. Did I mention it was against 3 sisters of battle?

28 sluggas and Their nob are accompanied by a Wierdboy, I roll Warpath just before Charging 5 Marine Scouts with them.

140 Attacks from the Boys alone, Plus the 5 from the Wierdboy, and the Nobs 5 Powerklaw Attacks


Git Marine player goes 'Roll it!'

I do have to admit it did take 112 of those attacks to wipe him out.

About 40ish with a big mob of shootas taking pot shots at some Sternguard with Vulcan. Then I forgot to charge.

Just last week...full squad of 10 Seekers of Slaanesh assaulting a squad of Pathfinders! 50 attacks! It was fun hunting for the "rends" among all of those dice.

My 'almighty platoon' tactic.
Take 6 platoons of a basic command squad and 2 squads of guardsmen, either give them meltaguns, flamers, or plain lasguns.
Except for one 'full' platoon, of the whole 5 squads Guardsmen.

I take all the command squads, put them near the 'full' platoon, and issue the First Rank Fire! order to each squad, somehow I pulled off every leadsership test, and with the magic of combining your squads, I let off not just 130-140 shots with the 'full' platoon, by having all of them combined and together I let off 340 shots at a single squad of Plague Marines by surrounding a ruin and blasting the hell out of it.
This resulted in a pitiful 70-odd wounds, 30+ were armour saved, 20+ were Feel no Pained.

The Plague marines survived with 4 models still sitting on the objective.


Edit: I wont be surprised by getting salt thrown at me and getting into my eyes, but believe it or not, yes it did happen!

49 with the old eldar codex. full squad of guardians with a scatter laser and a warlock. of course rolling a lucky 6 on the scatter laser. those poor terminators just scattered to close on their deep strike roll.

Laughingmonk
11-09-2009, 05:34
I once had a dark angels army. One game I used deathwing. I scattered right in the midst of an opponents shooty SM army. I had to roll over 100 armor saves for that squad. They died. A little off topic, I know, but still funny.

20 berzerkers charging....don't remember the amount of dices I rolled but it was awesome because I killed 29slugga boyz, thier nob and a big mek.

Axel

106 for an attack with Sluggaboyz.
Though the 100 wounds from a particularly successfull drive-by with my Burnaboyz come close.

11-09-2009, 07:02
I had a 30 man slugga unit with nob and a warp head with the +1 A psk power on. totalled 154-155 attacks=screw you Powerfist termies

Tarian
11-09-2009, 07:06
Is it just me, or are orks involved in either generating the attacks or getting plastered by them for most of these cases?

That said, the most I've rolled is... 25 for 10 Sisters assaulting with a Canoness and VSS. (Primarily a Fantasy player, and just have a small WH40k force.)

Ha, that was used on me, 1 of my terminators died.:p

The most I have ever rolled was probably when I played Chaos and my 16 strong unit of beserkers had me rolling 60 dice + 5 for the aspiring Champion if they ever made it to combat as a full unit. Before you ask, it was 16 models because at the time Beserkers got a free aspiring champion if the number of models in the unit was a multiple of 8, khorne's sacred number.

3 squads of 32 hormagaunts hitting a IG gunline at once to be fair he had killed the other two units. So around 225 in once cc phase

About 150 attacks.
Old codex IG, full size warrior weapon conscript unit, with assorted advisors.

This was a scenario driven mission, against old Orks. I had two of these units, and my opponent and I informally conspired to make sure that one of them actually got to charge at near full strength.
Do you have any idea how dispiriting it is to roll that many dice, and then have to pick up and re-roll most of them- priest gave re-roll to hit, and they needed it....

Other than set-ups, ~90ish lasgun shots. Happens fairly often with largish units and FRF, SRF.

Ummmm i can't put a exact figure on the number rolled but it was well into the hundreds as i was fighting two Green Tides and my Reaver Titan got blown up and rolled 30". Never seen so many units and vehicles vanish in one go as i did then.

about 70 odd dice from a unit of blood claws, took down a nightbringer:p

110 rolls to wound on a guardian squad from a burna boyz mob on a looted waggon.
They all died!

rolling saves for a squad of 10 guardians being assaulted by 10 harlies and 10 warp spiders (with the maxed exarch).

Inquisitor666
11-09-2009, 17:35
about 140 when i charged a last squad of dark eldar incubi with lord with a lot of nids =)
He had to make for about 40 saves =)

how would that work? :eyebrows: Blood claws can't hurt a night bringer, only if they were armed with a power fist and that would require like 18 power fists in old editions and 24 now.

LonelyPath
11-09-2009, 18:10
About 40 in 40k, but in WFB 3rd edition I got to charge with a small unit of wardancers led by a wardancer lord and got to roll over 100 dice (and that was for about 8 models!)

Anarchist Angel
11-09-2009, 18:14
Lol, it's not the most dice i've ever rolled but once my kruellagh the vile rolled 23 attacks all by herself against an ork army :p

between 40 and 50 with Death Company in 3rd or early 4th edition.

11-09-2009, 20:15
i rolled 72 once when 3 squads of firewarriors jumped out of Dfish and double tapped a marine squad. also in an apoc game i deep struck a shas'o crisis and he scatered about 15" away from an entire 2000pt necron force. he took around 110-120 saves. luckily he was 2+/4+ and 2 shield drones. they both died and he lost 3wounds, so 1 left:D. man that guy was pissed about that too. he sold his whole army the next day:wtf:. sorry for getting a little off topic there too.

Bunnahabhain
11-09-2009, 20:20
One I forgot about.

Exactly 3000.

Back when we having a debate over the degree of bias in GW/ Chessex rounded corner dice. I had a somewhat boring evening, so I checked mine.

Sorted 60 out, rolled them, and recorded the results. Repeat 50 times. And they turn out to be fair, within the limits of statistical significance....

127 by a full boyz mob+Ghazgull on charge

Yup. Done that. It's... uh, excessive.

CthulhuDalek
11-09-2009, 21:13
I think like 90 for a hormagaunt squad? I might have rolled more since then but I just remember the feeling of rolling 30 dice 3 times...

In the beginning of 3rd edition I had a footslogging Ork horde and on more than one occasion I played against my friend's footslogging Ork horde. ;)

Battlewagoon with 15 burna boys, think I got 10 models under the template so 150 wound rolls :)

Speculation, but imagine the fun of a Green Tide charging...

Axel
12-09-2009, 23:31
hasn't anyone ever charged with a green tide? its 400 dice on the charge!


Speculation, but imagine the fun of a Green Tide charging...

We once had a Green Tide charge in an Apo-game, but the problem is to hit a target that is sufficiently close AND spread out to really make use of all the Orks. Afaik the player hit three units and got around 100 for each of them, with roughly half of the orks being out of target for the charge. That particular fight went on for the rest of the game...

Docnoxin
13-09-2009, 02:56
I simultaneously charged a unit of 20 shoota bozy with 3 units of slugga boyz two 20 man units on foot and a unit of 12 boyz from a trukk. We didn't even factor in the Nobz pk attacks, of which every unit had one. 200+ attacks with 5 double handfuls of dice.

30 man unit of orks charging, 4 dice each, 120 dice needed rolling!

Alessander

Back when Baharoth had the "sustained attack" rule (you get an extra roll to hit each time you hit) I racked up an astounding 28 hits…

247 dice from one character. It was in a superhero game, though. He hit hard.

19-09-2009, 17:40
I just worked it out, with Ragnar Blackmaine's special rules and a full unit of Blood Claws, I'll have 104 Spacemarine, Furious charge attacks, It's gonna be sweet.

19-09-2009, 17:53
32 hormaguants with 1 attack base + 1 for scything talons + 1 for charging = 96 attacks

180+ dice.....a green tide really REALLY got in there on another :D

Probably that Hecatonchire in a D&D game... The thing's got 100 attacks, scary.

VanirX

45 dice from my 10 man Death Company & Lemartes on the charge. Ended up dealing out 7 rends and a whole lot of wounds.

Kavill85th
21-09-2009, 19:35
145 lasgun/pistol shots from 5 combined infantry squads with no upgrades after being given the FRFSRF order, all aimed at a flyrant

I hit about 90 times, wounded about 15 times, he failed exactly 4 saves :D

^^I tell you, stick a commissar with that squad and you've got one excellent (albeit expensive) tar pit

CrownAxe
21-09-2009, 19:38
80-100 for having a whole squad of Seekers of Slaanesh charge

Huge Assault by a Green Tide hitting an Endless Swarm. Oh the carnage and calculators that came out for THAT mess.

BigBadBull
21-09-2009, 21:20
Me maybe like 40 or so with mutiple squads of Firewarriors rapid firing
or like 5-7 squads of Death Wing Termys and dreads crashing down in a Death Knell formation....

I did have two ork Gargants fire 75+ shots at a Murader Destroyer in one shooting phase...
Not a single shot did damage between the BS of 2 and the aircraft moving and getting the 4+ save...

A brood of 32 Devourergaunts shooting and assaulting a squad of 10 terminators (might've had a character). 64 shots (that re-rolled to wound), plus then 64 more attacks on the charge....the nearby Lictor meaning I got to re-roll to hit :evilgrin:

Needless to say, stuff died, and not Tyranid-y stuff

22-09-2009, 19:59
About eighty lasgun shots were blasted at a squad of four plague marines from a First Rank Fire! ordered merged platoon. Only one Plague Marine died.

Those things are ludicrously tough.

Quoted for truth. Awilla, you need some new dice, dude.:p

Not so much, 80 shots - 40 hits - 6.66 wounds - 2.22 failed saves - one FNP fail. So, pretty perfect dice really. Lasguns just ain't all that against the fat nurgle marines.

brightblade
22-09-2009, 22:22
Maths! pfft! it no work in the future....I fired 8 bolters at five coupla games ago and killed three, then four bolt pistols at another 5 killing two. 80 strength 3 vs T5 shots should do the job. lol.

hang on a minute.....

edit; back again. just rolled. 38 hits, 13 wounds, 5 failed saves, 3 failed feel no pain= 3 dead nurglies. Seems to work for me! Lol. :D

edit; and again, 47 hits (ahead of the curve), 7 wounds (way behind), 4 failed saves, 3 failed feel no pain=3 dead nurglies.

There we go (after an exhaustive test of two rounds of rolling) I am convinced.:p:D

Now I am done, before I get accused of trolling when really I am just being silly.:)

22-09-2009, 23:32
I've had 340+ lagun shots kill 6 Plague Marines.
Maybe like..6 shots were meltaguns....
Flamers were out of range...
