    Question about Insta-kill

    Just had a quick question about Instakilling swarms. If a unit (say a quad of terminators with 2 assault cannons) scored multiple instakill wounds (lets say 3) on a brood of ripper swarms, how are the insta-kill wounds allocated.

    As far as I know, you cannot allocate wounds to another model until a wounded model has been removed. Does this mean that you allocated all 3 wounds on 1 ripper swarm (because the shots happen at the same time), thus instakilling it, or do you instakill 3 swarms because each swarm is removed immediately after it recieves 1 wound?

    I'm leaning towards the 2nd one but still not sure so needed a little clarification

    Thanks

    Just re-read the Instant Death rule on page 27:

    So, from that, you would remove three swarms, as you deal one wound, take one off, deal the second wound, take the second one off, and continue 'til you're done. :yes:

    Hope this helps.

    The first wound applied would insta-kill a swarm base, so you could no longer allocate more wounds to it. So the next would would then insta-kill a second base, and so on... For your example, 3 whole bases would be removed.


    *edit* Bah, beat me to it! :p
