    Default Wound over spill question.

    Hey all I have a question for you.

    You have a unit with 5 guys and a character. You deal six wounds to the unit. All five guys die and there is one wound left does it go onto to the character?
    Off with there heads!!!!!

    No. Wounds are allocated either to characters or the unit with any excess being lost.

    Not really. Normal shooting attacks that require BS can't affect characters in a unit as long as there are at least 5 rank and file troops in the unit with the character as per page 184 of the rule book.

    You must declare attacks to be directed at a character prior to the To Hit Roll is made. There are cases were only the character maybe targeted, most notably Ogres or characters on large base mounts.

    The only time there are spill over wounds that go to characters are from Undead Instability where all the models in a unit crumbles, then the excess wounds go to the character.

    It's why lance formation is such a pain, brets can stack their front row with characters and you have to wade through them to get to the easier knights behind.
