Situation: A Ripper Swarm Brood, takes a direct hit from a demolisher cannon. 6 models are under the marker. 6 hits are scored, 6 wounds are rolled.
With Vulnerable to blasts, (pg 13 Tyranid Codex) the wound count doubles to 12. 12 Str 10 wounds on a brood of 10 ripper swarms (30 wounds) would be 12 wounds each causing instant death (pg. 27 4th Rulebook) does the entire brood perish?

I need to read a bit more though and I can't at the moment. I thought there was some rule limiting you to only as many kills as you had under the marker but I can't find it, and I might just be crazy. Well, I AM crazy, it just might be effecting me moreso here then normal.
Hopefully someone else with the big book and/or FAQs handy can do a better check for you.

Give a Rep Star if you like what someone said. Especially Me. I'm an unabashed Star whore. Blame my 2nd grade teacher and those stupid good behavior stickers. I'm just conditioned. I'm the Pavlov's Dog of stars.
You win with VP, NOT with kills
Yes, the main rulebook FAQ clarifies that you double wounds *before* adjudicating Instant Death. Each wound inflicted by a blast/template that has S double the victim's T will kill two entire bases.
(Of course, assuming the other 4 bases are eligible casualties based on range/LOS etc)
Just a quick question if i wound a ripper base with a lascannon does it eliminate the whole base or just cause a wound?
Change is good
Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
If you're intruiged by doctors who are also ninjas, then this is the webcomic for you!
Yeah, prior to the BGB faq, swarms were actually useful. Now they are total, and complete crap. You'll also note that because of the double hits, then check results, it also means that you can kill 2 vehicles that are in a squad with a single blast hit, namely vypers.
