Default Wound allocation in 5th?

Warning: This poster is a nooblet..

I'm having a little trouble understanding wound allocation in 5th ed now. Anyone willing to explain it to me?

Ex: I have a 12 Tau squad of Fire Warriors, one being a Shas'la (sgt equiv right?) and I receive 4 wounds, how would those be divvied out?

Thanks in advance guys!

You apply wounds to each type of model, so the sgt can only be allocated a wound if there's 12 wounds caused, unless you want him wounded.

But isn't the Sgt a different type than the shas'la?

This is the way I was told to do it:

1 wound would go to shas'la
1 wound would go to shas'ui
1 wound would go to another shas'la
and then the last one would go to the shas'ui

Lyk4n you do not have to allocate a wound to the Shas'ui until you have allocated a wound for all of your Shas'la. There is no rule that says you have to allocate wounds to all the different types within a squad. Always save your Shas'ui until last. Somebody just wanted your Shas'ui dead! ;D

So as to how they would be allocated: 4 wounds to 4 Shas'la.

EDIT:
Had my uis and las backwards! Thanks X.

You are aware that shas'ui are sgt equivs and shas'la are basic squad members right?

True but they are both single wound model. The really fun is with multi wound models of mix configuration.

Since the OP's question was answered, I would like to Hijack this with a related question.

I have a HQ with two body guards. All have slightly differnt EQ, and all have two shield drones.

As far as wound allocation goes I know each suit is a batch of one. But what about the Drones. Would they be batches of twos sense every two belong to a differnt model, or would it be a batch of three?
