How does Telion's wound assignment work in a group of scouts.
Say I've got a squad of 9 scouts and telion, all shoot. I get to assign Telions wounds, and my opponent gets to assign the scout wounds as normal. Who assigns the wounds first? Is there any FAQ on this available?
RAW it is just Telions shots that can be allowcated. The only thing he can do is boost a scouts bs. Unless there is another clarrification. If he did that he would be worth more than 50 pts ^^
I would shoot with the scouts, let him deliver the wounds, then shoot with Telion
I thought that all units in a shooting group have to shoot at the same time. I could be wrong in that.
AH this is true if all models are the same BS, but Telions BS is higher than the scouts, therefore you would either roll different colour dice, or roll them before/after the dice, your disgression on that one
And you are 100% right! The squad, including Tellion, all fire at the same time.
Tellion's wounds can be allocated after or before since the Codex doesn't specify the priority of allocations.
Due to the wounds allocation rule, the advantage is to make a specific model (that IC attached to the squad or the Sergeant with special gear) roll (or roll more) for their save when they wouldn't do it otherwise.
really? how do you distinguish the fact Telion has better BS? different coloured dice? I guess that changed from 4th to 5th, im sorry.
And p.88 states that he can allowcate wounds, not the squad
Yeah you would just roll with different coloured dice or roll the to hit and to wound rolls seperately but resolve wound allocation simultaneously.
Keep track of the # of wounds caused by normal scouts, and how many wounds Telion caused. Your opponent gets to distribute the scout wounds as normal. Once he is done distributing those, you distribute Telion's however you want.
yeah sooch took what i meant and explained it better
