Now, please forgive but I am not much of a gamer. In general I have a decent grasp of the rules, but some stuff slips through my fingers. Wound Allocation is such one rule. I was hoping you kind folk of the interwebs could enlighten my mind. And to help me, lets use an example...
I have a ten man generic space marine tactical squad. It includes one sergeant with a power weapon, one marine with a flamer, another with a missile launcher and the rest are all armed with boltguns.
The unit suffers 12 wounds.
How would you allocate these?
Does everyone have to take one wound each, then the two remaining placed one any you choose? Or can you pile them all onto a couple of guys? What is the advantage of arming them all different ways? Is it the owning player that allocates wounds, or does your opponent have a say in who he'd like to attack? Is it done the same in combat as well as view shooting?
