I played a game recently where my Boyz used 11 burners on an Eldar unit. The Eldar player took all wounds on a character with amazing armour saves, completely nullifying the result!! Is this correct? James
Nooooooooooooo no no no no no noooooo. Shame on the eldar player.
When a Unit recieves multiple wounds from the same source, you must allocate those wounds as evenly as possible within the unit.
For Example: if he took 15 wounds, and his unit consisted of 4 troops+Character, he could assign 3 wounds to the Character, while also giving 3 wounds to each other model (15 wounds / 5 models = 3 wounds-per-model).
Yeah, what he did was basically cheating.
Pretty nasty cheating too.
EVERY model in the unit has to have a wound allocated to it before any particular model can have a second wound allocated; you then group up identical models, and each of those groups 'share' wounds amongst eachother.
Thanks for the explanation people. I suspected that this was the case but didn't have time to check it. I think he may have just been ignorant of the rule but even so was quick to go for an interpretation which advantaged him. Does the even allocation of casualties principal also apply to casualties from shooting and assault? James
