The grand finale match of the 40k campaign my LGS ran earlier this year pitted four players against each other, 2-on-2. One side was Tyranids and Chaos, the other Space Marines and Imperial Guard.

Now, the IG player is old. Really old. He owns literally every GW and Forge World product ever produced, most of them at least assembled, if not painted, and regularly fields the largest forces of anyone in the local area, possibly the state. Heading up his force was an old Armorcast Baneblade, onto which he had affixed Commissar Yarrick to turn it into the Fortress of Arrogance.

So the turns go by, nothing special about the game, and the IG player is pretty fairly dominating the badies all on his lonesome, so he gets a bit bored. Just as I re-enter the room, he shrugs and says, "the Fortress of Arrogance targets that statue over there." We all looked down. "The statue of the Emperor?" we asked. "Yes." "But you're the Imperial Guard!" "Yep."

Anyway, we look on in disbelief as he targets the main gun on the thing and starts rolling. Perfect LoS, no enemies in the way, nothing nearby to disrupt the shot. Rolls a 1. Complete miss. He laughs and focuses every other weapon with range on the tank. Every single one misses. He's not laughing now, although the rest of us are cracking up. "The God-Emperor's wrath, you heretic!" someone shouted, much to our amusement. I swear to you, for the rest of the battle that tank did jack all. It finally ended up immobilized and exploding when all of its weapons were systematically picked off by Tyranid fire, losing his side the game.

And that, kids, is why you don't commit heresy.

Gah, what did GW do to the paper the codices are printed on? Every single image scanned from a codex or army book since either Beastmen or Skaven, I forget which, has been crap quality. The same weird hash texture ruins them. It can't be a coincidence. A new anti-pirate measure?

Bombed last night, and bombed the night before

When we're bombed, we're scared as we can be
Can't stop the bombing sent from Higher German (Heretic Gunships)

They're over us, they're over us,
One shell hole for just the four of us,
Thank your lucky stars there are no more of us,
'Cause one of us can fill it all alone.

Gassed last night, and gassed the night before
Going to get gassed tonight;
If we never get gassed anymore
When we're gassed, we're sick as we can be
For Phosgene and Mustard Gas is much too much for me.

They're warning us, they're warning us,
One respirator for the four of us
Thank your lucky stars that three of us can run,
So one of us can use it all alone.
