Checked out some old thread but I'm not sure at the moment. So a Tomb Spyder with a Scarab Swarm is being shot at. The rulebook states that if no majority of toughness values exists within the unit, use the highest one.
In the old thread (2006) they were saying that the unit takes wounds at T3 because Scarabs have one more wound than the spyder making them a majority.
"toughness characteristic that is in the majority..." "...if no majority exists, use the highest value in the unit."
It is the toughness charasteristic that has to be the majority, not the wounds. There are two values in the Spyder Scarab unit, 6 and 3. They take wounds on T6, the highest value in the unit of 2 toughness values, no majority.
Is this correct?
You are correct. Majority uses the number of models in the unit, and not the number of wounds. This is indicated by the example in the MULTIPLE TOUGHNESS VALUES section (pg 19), as there is no mention of wounds.

First off, a thread from 2006 was during 4th edition and a different rule set... so nothing said there can be counted on. Secondly, you are right that it's by models and not wounds. However, in 4th, you used the lowest. Now you use the highest in 5th.
However, when I read your question it sounds to me like you're referring to "the number of different toughness scores", meaning that in a unit with any number of Scarabs and a Spyder there would be only two different toughness scores (the Spyder has one toughness, and all the Scarabs have a second toughness). If this is in fact what you are saying, it is absolutely not correct.
Apologies if I'm misunderstanding.
