    I thought we tried that... 1 Hit roll... 2 Wound roll... 3 Save roll... 4 distribute wounds (1,2,3,d3,d6)

    The biggest problem here appears to be the lexicon used while presenting the combat resolution. Mostly re-using the word "wound" too many times. Here is something a little more clear:

    First an attack uses a "To-Hit" roll (attacker rolls) to determine if the blow has been struck
    Secondly a successful attack uses a "To-Wound" roll (attacker rolls) to determine if the blow was solid
    Thirdly a solid blow begets a "Save-Roll" (defender rolls) to determine if the model's armour or physical traits is enough to shrug off the blow, perhaps the armour stops the attack, or the creature's raw constitution allows it to ignore any damage done.

    Finally you compare the number of failed saves to the attack's damage characteristic and then that many wounds are applied to the unit. For clarification, usually this number of models is removed.
    The big hang up is "To-Wound" doesn't mean "One Wound" it means a chance for the weapon to deal damage. Unfortunately the health/vitality/durability of models is still measured in wounds which clutters up the description of combat resolution.
