I'm trying to understand how a squad with chaos spawn and chaos hounds would take and distribute wounds. I can't seem to find any where in the basic rulebook that talks about how followers work, so I am assuming they basically function as additional members of the squad.
Let me give some examples,
Suppose I have 6 marines with a spawn. They are fired upon and are wounded 6 times (using the majority toughness, 4). Everybody has a 3+ save, so I save half of the wounds, and take 3. Now, according to the casualty rules, I can distribute the wounds, so I give two to the chaos spawn (since if I wanted to give it wounds, I'd have to give it 2 to kill it under the rules for models with multiple wounds). And I give the 3rd wound to a marine and wind up with 5 marines left. Would this be correct?
Suppose I have 6 marines with 4 chaos hounds. They are fired upon and are wounded 8 times (again, everybody has 4 toughness, so that's not really an issue). According to the mixed armor rules, I have to apply hits to the majority armor save first, which would be 3+, so all 6 marines are hit and 2 hounds are hit. I would then make 6 3+ saves and 2 6+ saves. Is that correct?
If that's not what would happen, what would happen in these cases?
Sorry if I spilled out too many specific unit attributes and what not, but I understand things better if I can see it "in action."
Finally, I am thinking about using spawn and hounds in my emperor's children army to compensate for the low favored unit number (and followers don't count for sacred number purposes). I'd give the hounds to assault type squads to fill up their rhinos, and the spawn to fire support squads to offer melee support and extra wounds.

Remember, you can do multibles of your favored number. That could be important.:yes:
yes for slaanesh its usually best to go for 12 as a unit size, fixes the low favoured number problem.
but yes you appear to be correct for both examples.

Yeah, but 12 is a lot more expensive, and you can't fit 12 marines into a rhino.
