When a model has been killed by instant death in close combat, do you count his remaining number of wounds for combat resolution or the number of hits that killed him?
Example:unwounded (W3) Space Marine Captain (T4) has been wounded two times by...something with S8, and fails both saves. Now, only one was enough to instant-kill him. When you calculate wounds for who won the fight, does that Captain counts as 3 wounds or 2 wounds?

Oh damn, I just saw the same question already here, please delete this!
I think you count the number of wounds that were lost in that combat round.
My best example was a GUO on combat with 5 ripper swarms and a carnifex. The GUO instant killed 4 ripper bases (out of synapse) and the carnifex inflicted one wound. Carnifex then had to make 11 saves and died.
- if the captain was fresh and instant killed you count 3 wounds.
- if the captain was fresh and instant killed twice you still only count 3 wounds.
- if the captain had taken 1 wound from shooting and was instant killed you count 2 wounds.
