Each player may appoint a squad leader without any additional cost. Squad leaders strengthen the ability of infantry to stay in play despite enemy fire. Squad leaders may not issue orders like ranking officers but have the ability to rally two units in a radius of 20 cm / 8 in per turn.
To make a successful rally the squad leader has to pass a morale check. Rallied units loose one of their suppressed and/or frightened tokens. For each soldier the squad leader tries to rally he will spend one action. Each squad leader will receive a +1 on his own attacks and morale checks.
