Leaders in HTL
|Fine sausages Sir!|
He wasn't called Butcher for nothing. The Duke of Cumberland, a competent leader and inventor of the famous sausage.
Leaders in HTL are very important. Apart from the use of the commanders' capability to save APs for the next turn, leaders will:
- rally a unit they are stacked with (remove losses) if the leader is activated by spending an AP;
- help a unit they are stacked with to force march (move one extra hex);
- add their leadership rating to a defending unit's morale rating when testing during close combat;
- add their leadership rating to a heavy cavalry unit when it tests its morale for the purposes of withdrawing before combat.
In the five Highland Charge scenarios there are one, two or three leaders with values of either 1 or 2. Good commanders rated 2 include Argyll, Rob Roy, Murray and Munro. Despite his achievements, Cumberland rates only a 1. Cheer for your favourites!
|Rob Roy didn't invent any sausages, unfortunately|
