Hi people,

can you help clarify how the flammable rule works. Given that

BRB pg 45 - Multi-wound models and multi-wound weapons wrote:

If a unit of creatures with more than 1 Wound on their profile is hit by a weapon that causes multiple wounds, determine how many wounds are caused on each model individually (remember that each model cannot suffer more wounds than it has on its profile)

the flammable rule says

BRB pg 69 - If a model with the flammable rule suffers one or more unsaved wounds from a flaming attack, each unsaved wound is doubled

Now I have always interpreted this to mean you evaluate each model and how many wounds it has left to determine how many wounds it can take.

For instance a unit of 3 treekin takes 3 wounds. 1 treekin has 2 wounds already. Now the treekin with 2 wounds takes the first wound. You check if it has received wounds equal to its profile. It has therefore no multiplication. Now the second wound is taken by another treekin. That wound is multiplied.So 2 wounds to that treekin. Finally the last wound is taken on the same treekin. Again no multiplication as that would mean 4 wounds to the treekin. Final result 2 dead treekin or 4 wounds in total. This is also as far as I can see the approach taken by Shandakor on the Asrai forum. http://www.asrai.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=21370

However my gaming group places it differently. You don't take into account how many wounds the model has already. So the above example would mean each 6 wounds on the unit, as 2 wounds is less than the three on the profile.
