Whenever I look at ork lists with nobz, everyone seems to make sure each nob model in the unit is uniquely equipped and implies this is for the purposes of wound allocation in melee combat. Did I miss a rule somewhere or am I possibly just miss understanding people? Where in the fifth edition rule book does it say I can't allocate wounds as I please across a unit? I've even seen someone go as far as to say without the uniquely equipped nobz, you have to kill off a model before moving on to apply wounds to the next in the unit.
I'm fairly certain that I'm somehow just misunderstanding people, but I wanted someone to back me up on that assumption. I mean, the rule book even suggests places wounds on models that aren't in range of melee combat yet specifically so you can maximize the number of units IN melee combat! :ireful2:
