Models Removed by Template Weapons?
Played a quick proxy game today and had this issue.
I was using a Lord of Change with Breath of Chaos.
I moved within range of a CSM squad that contained 10 men, a Champion w/Fist, IOK, x2 Plasmas.
Now, because of the way the models were set up and the way I placed the template I was able to wound 5 models in total including his Champion, the Icon Bearer and 1 Plasma Marine.
All models were wounded and with no saves allowed were to be removed from play.
My opponent (my friends cousin) proceeds to remove 5 regular models. In other words he didn't specifically remove the models that were under the template, including the juicy champion, Icon and Plasma marine.
So you can understand why I'd be upset, but he argued that he can just remove 5 models from the squad (ala regular shooting), as I caused 5 Wounds and that those specific models do not need to me removed.
Probably a simple enough question, and I'm 99.9% sure I'm right, but I'd appreciate the back-up as I don't have a Rule Book of my own, and it was just a quick proxy game today and I was told to quote 'lighten up' when I insisted on finding a ruling in the BRB.
