You can only inflict as many wounds on a model as its number of wounds, so if a Dwarf Lord with the D6 wounds weapon rune causes 3 unsaved wounds to a unit of Ogres, and rolls e.g. a 5, 4, 2, for the multiple wounds rolls, how does that work?

1) He caused 3 wounds initially so he can't kill more than 3 Ogres. The total rolled is 11 but he can therefore only cause 9 wounds.

2) The first roll of 5 kills an ogre and the remaining 2 wounds are lost. The second roll of 4 kills an ogre and the remaining 1 wound is lost. The third roll causes 2 wounds to an ogre. Therefore he has caused a total of 8 wounds.

3) He causes 11 wounds to the unit because that's what he rolled, so he kills 3 ogres and wounds another ogre twice.

Now how about if the roll was 2, 6, 3...

The first '2' leaves an ogre with one wound remaining. Does this mean the '6' finishes off his last wound and then the surplus 5 wounds on that are wasted? Also, does this mean you must roll for the multiple wounds one dice at a time? Otherwise you won't know what order to apply the wounds in.

How about a Flame Cannon template wounding 3 ogres (D3 wounds each), rolling a 2, 6, and 4... The 6 causes 3 wounds which kills a whole ogre, but are you then left with 2 wounded ogres (one with 1 wound left and one with 2 wounds left) or do the wounds combine to to kill off another whole ogre. Does this change if the Champion is wounded?
