Storytime /tg/, I shall tell you about my greatest Kill in 40k.

After I am done, Storytime General Thread.

>Cooly Reply "hey, it's got a Commissarial Crew, turns out it's got Fuklaw in it."
>Neckbeard pauses, realizing what I said
>Completely rages, storms out of the store
>Never returns

And that /tg/, is how I got my first Titan Kill. That ring still sits as the only one around the barrel of its Volcano Cannon, a testament to that day. It has racked up 2 more Titan Kills since that day, but I've made those go only on a Tabbard I made on the side to tally kills.

So, 40k Storytime thread. I know you got some good ones, let's hear 'em.

TFW I don't have any 40k stories :<

>> No.27061286

in 4th edition 40k I once killed Eldrad in one round of combat with 4 tactical marines
It was the 4th game of 40k I had ever played and the 1st apoc game I had ever played
That player did not show his face for about a month

I'm just getting started on the hobby, not sure what I'll be playing

So far I've ordered
>dark vengeance: 550ish CSM and 550ish DA
>around 800 points of orks
>bidding on a Necron battleforce

Dark Eldar seem the most fun to me but they are hard to find for a good price or they are finecast.

I've played all of 2 games of 40k, neither of which I had won, but I had a pretty good moment of awesome in the second one.

>friend teaching me how to play
>he's playing 'Nids, I'm playing his grilfriend's (an ex of mine) Daemons
>start goes smoothly, as my force of Khornate Daemons warp in on target
>wrap up in melee with a couple groups of Genestealers
>couple turns in, my Pink Horrors, the elite-ish Horror and Flaming Chariot warp in
>once more, on point, and right behind the cover of a building terrain
>They somehow have LoS on his HQ Nid (forgot what model, but it had that spore cloud that buffs his 'Nids while debuffing my stuff), but it can't see them
>Firing Round, have elite Horror roll for Warp Dickery. Get a 6 on Psyker ability and easily pass Psyker test.
>mfw, in my head, the huge fucking spore guy is watching a giant fucking blue fireball of chaos roar from around the corner of a building before slamming into its face and completely destroying it
>rest of the game... not so good
>guy has the psyker 'Nid as a backup HQ
>his second group of genestealers appears behind my my group
>starts to route my Horrors as they retaliate with moving and blasting with Psyker abilities
>destroys my Chariot with some venomblaster thing from another big 'Nid

Overall, still fun.

I deleted my post. Didn't read your whole story. Called you a hater until the PM owner started hatin' himself. That ain't cool. Still, cool kill.

I remember the first time I killed a daemon prince back in 5th ed. Lost that game, but thought I was hot shit for that.

>> No.27061581

Never understood why some stores did that.
No problem man, and good kill. What'd you kill it with?

A barrage of lascannon shots from 4 devastators. I ran BA and all my CC units were tied up.

Nice, those bastards are hardy if the guy plays them right. Thankfully the one I fought took a Volcano Cannon to the face.

The best I've got is the time I punched a Lord of Skulls to death with an Ork Warboss, and when Wazdakka ripped his way out of the warp after being hit by a daemonshell.

>> No.27061687

I wanna hear about the Wazdakka story, please elaborate.

>> No.27061760

Ah, well, technically he didn't, but that's what I like to interpret it as.
Basically, it was at a GW store back when Apocalypse 6th Ed was released; they were doing a big game to promo it and I was one of the players controlling the Orks.
Wazdakka and his Nob Biker squad were hit by a Strength D daemon shell and, according to the manager, killed; however, he then realized that the rules for Strength D weapons had changed, and that Wazdakka and one Biker were still alive. Since we had to put them back on the table, I imagined it to represent them punching their way out of the warp through sheer force of Waaagh!.

>> No.27061818

Back in 4th edition, my Tau vs my buddy's Necrons. We played each other a lot since I had terrain and he had a table of appropriate size (turns out half a ping pong table is great for 40k). Since we faced each other so often he tailored his list against me while I went more balanced (which resulted in me winning a local tournament and him doing poorly). His strategy against me was a squad of Immortals accompanied by a Necron Lord with a... Veil of Time? I can't remember the war gear but it let his lord and accompanying squad deep strike anywhere. He'd drop his immortals off near my troops and then just shred them.

One game he made the mistake of putting his Necron Lord out front of his army. In 4th edition you had to make a morale check to shoot past anything other than the closest target, so this was a big fucking mistake. I get first turn, and the first shot fired in my shooting phase is my Hammerhead's railgun, solid round, into his Lord. Hit. Wound. Fails his invulnerable save. The Lord becomes a smear. My friend, a sore loser, simply walks away from the table conceding the match and leaves me to clean up the terrain.

So worth it.

If he ragequit after losing his Lord and nothing else, the rest of his army must have absolutely sucked balls. Or he's just a little pussy. Either way, he deserves to lose.

Stores that are small enough to be for a single employe only. Working for gw gives you 45minutes pause time each day. A one man store is of course closed when the dude has to eat, take a piss etc.

Of course he could do that with customers inside but who watches at the wares/store?

Mind that some do their needs while customers are there. Its always a matter of trust and that depends on the person

For ages in 5th i used an autarch with power weapon and mandiblasters, becuase it a 1500 vs 500 (me) thing he tore apart half the enemy army. Later he killed 4 sanguinary guard in one swipe. that was pretty cool.

>> No.27062092


It's due to arrive in a couple of days and since they're my first armies, I have absolutely no idea how many points are good or bad. Kind of weird though, I figured both sides would be sort of balanced. I guess termies are very expensive.

Thanks for the info!
