Check how it works on p 41, Suffering wounds % removing casualties. Remember that IC's re considered individual units in cc. You can always try to consolidate back into base contact or just let him blow himself to pieces while rapidfiring those "gets hot" firearms:yes:
Well, his mutant boss and AC are not IC, so he can still allocate those thits on my daemon prince. It's just that IC's can't make their attacks unless they are in base to base, but his AC and mutant boss are not IC's, and my daemon prince is. As my daemon prince is a unit, he can still allocate all his attacks on the prince itself.
And he doesn't use firearms, since those things are pretty pointless, because you want those mutants in combat, not rapid fireing. He does, however, use flamers, but those are assault weapons.
Ok guys, I did some math on my zerkers and prince charging one of his units of mutants.
If I assault with my zerkers, i get 6.2222222 kills on average. Let's say he had 12 mutants (normal ones) which were able to strike in the first place (which isn't unlikely). My daemon prince kills 3 mutants. With 9 mutants dead thats another 6 attacks. This kills a little less than 1 marine on average. Then all the powerfists are done at the same time. He gets 5 fist attacks with his AC and 4 with his mutant boss. this kills 4 zerkers on average. My AC has 5 attacks, killing 3 mutants.
So I killed 12 mutants, which is worth 72 points. He proceded to kill 4 zerkers, which is 80 points. So that's a Ld 10 test for him, he passes and consolidates.
Now for the combat after this one. I get to strike first, so that's 9 chain axe attacks. That's 2 dead mutants. Then My daemon prince kills about 3 mutants. he still has 7 mutants standing after those attacks, so that's 14 attacks, which kill 1 zerker. Than the power fists. He kills 4 zerkers again, wiping them out. My AC kills 2 mutants.
Now he has 5 mutants, a boss and an AC still standing. Mu zerker unit is wiped out. I killed 7 mutants, that's 42 points. He killed 4 zerkers again, that's 80 points.
Let's look at the combat between the daemon prince and the mutants following this (it's very unlikely he hasn't brought in any daemon suport by now).
My daemon prince kills 3 mutants, his boss and AC (almost) kill my daemon prince. ( it's 1,4 kills for the AC and 0,66666 for the boss). I I am lucky and the prince survives, he's killed the next turn taking another 3 mutants with him.
So without any form of support from both sides, A daemon prince and an unit of zerkers will lose combat to a unit of 25 mutants with aboss and AC with mutation and power fist.
He has lost 25 mutants, earning me a whole 150 points. He has killed models worth 327 points.
So I hope you see what problems this gives me
