Remember that, if you fail an armour save on a location that has already been
damaged and you roll that level or lower again, the damage result automatically
gets bumped up one level; that is, the second damage roll is NOT ignored. This
is according to Allen's Q&As, and is not mentioned specifically in the rules,
but it seems to me to be a good "almost official" rule. This should cut down
on the number of armour penetrations those Warhounds can take and still live
(unless they're being hit all over the chart).

Nevertheless, I'd have to agree that, assuming anti-hard-target weaponry on the
Reavers, in a contest between 3 Reavers and 2 Colossi, the last one standing
would probably be a Reaver.
