In the Official FAQ and Errata, it states about minions, "No members of the group are defeated, as the total wounds suffered has not yet exceeded an individual trooper’s wound threshold."
However there is text in the, "Under a Black Sun", PDF that states, "When the minion group sustains damage equal to an individual minion’s wound threshold, one minion is defeated and the group’s size decreases by one."
Which one is correct?
To me they say the same thing. Unless you quoted the Errata incorrectly.
Yeah I just reread it, you are only looking at a part of the answer and taking it out of context to the question asked. The bottom line if a minion group suffers more damage than a single minions threshold after soak a minion is defeated and removed.
Example: minion group of 4, soak 3, WT 5: at 6 damage no minion is defeated 6 - 3 (soak) = 3 to WT of 5 = 2 left over no one defeated.
At 11 damage: 11 - 3 (soak) = 8 to WT of 5 = -3 rolled to 2nd minion, and 1 minion is removed.
At 16 damage: 16 - 3 (soak) = 13 to WT of 5 = - 8 to 2nd minion of WT 5 = -3 to 3rd minion, and 2 minions are defeated and removed.
