How would wound allocation work if I have more than one wounded model in a single unit?
Say I bring Celestine, her geminae die and she takes some wounds, next turn I bring back a geminae with acts of faith at 1 wound.

When allocating wounds can I now pick between the wounded geminae or Celestine to take further wounds?

All the rules say is "If a model in the target unit has already lost any wounds, the damage must be allocated to that model."

So basically we have a rule saying we "must" allocate to two different models.

Slipshod HIWPI is just you pick which model so long as you allocate to a wounded model.

RaW everything breaks and a singularity is formed and we all die.

Not that this is an issue because Healing Tears bring back the Geminæ with full wounds.

Homework time: Anyone found a situation where you can end up with two differently wounded models in the same unit?

I am a moron the Act of Faith does indeed return with 1 wound.

Yeah, without a rules clarification, I'd say it's defender's choice. RAI is obviously not meant to give the same single wound to multiple models, so I see no problem with the defending player choosing the model, since it's their responsibility to allocate wounds anyway.
