Another Rule question since it seems people are refreshing these boards every 5 seconds judging by the speed they answered my last one.

In the rules it states that wounds are combined on models that have multiple wounds for ease. So if the models have 3 wounds a piece and you do 2, 2, 3 to 3 different models in the unit then it is combined to be 3, 3, and 1. Thus 2 models are killed and one has 1 wound on it.

My question is when you are firing with a cannon at skirmishers that have multiple wounds.

First example, you fire at the unit and your cannon ball bounces over 2 models that have 3 wounds a piece. Each model suffers 2 wounds a piece. Do you remove one as a casualty and the remaining one has 1 wound or do they both have 2 wounds?

Second scenario, same as above except there is a model in the unit that the cannon ball did not pass over and it has 1 wound already. The same number of wounds are inflicted as before. Would 2 of the wounds be given to the model in the unit that already has 1 wound or are they left on the two models that were hit? Thus 1 model would be killed and 2 models would have 1 wound a piece.

Thanks for your help on this.
