I have a question about flamer/template weapons. Say I use a WWP to drop a unit of 4 Medusae right next to a unit of 10 Space Marine bikers. Laying the template down, I can cover 5 of them, but the template can't reach the other 5, no matter how I position the template. With four Medusae using their eyeblasts, I would inflict 20 wounds (5 marines covered by the template, multiplied by 4 Medusae).
Here's the question: Once I've fried the five bikers I can reach, are the rest of the wounds discarded and the remaining five Space Marine bikers safe, or do the remaining wounds reach models not covered by the template as well?
