There is a squad of 3 crisis suits, one being a team leader with stimulant injectors. If the squad takes 1 or more wounds could you vouch the commander to take all the wounds and then have a chance to negate them with FOP? How could this work exactly? Or did my friend pull and epic maneuver on me?
Mind you, the big question has to be why your 3-man Crisis suit team should be having to take all those wounds in the first place. You might want to re-examine your tactics if this is a common issue for you ... ... ...

Thanks Thane for the info. I Telleported my 10xImortals and Lord in front of his Crisis suits and mauled him, lol.
A unit of 3 Crisis suits would have to have the wounds allocated according to the rules on P.27 BGB, third paragraph of "Creatures with more than one wound".
The FNP element from the Stimulant Injector would not come into the equation in the cited example because a Team Leader cannot take Special Issue wargear. Only a Shas'vre can access Spec Issue stuff. However, leaving that aside: the first two wounds caused on the 3-man squad could indeed be allocated to the (Shas'vre) squad leader. This follows the rule on P.27 BGB as you cannot spread the wounds around the unit. The Shas'vre could then use his FNP ability should he fail any of the saves made.
If there were more than 2 wounds, then the subsequent ones would have to be put on other models in the squad. Of course, there is also the element of Torrent of Fire (26 BG which could allow the enemy to force the Shas'vre to make the first save. This means that he could end up taking 3 wounds.
