See, I think that's hilarious - I like the idea of telling a prisoner to get out there and fight or else the resident sniper is gonna do some long-distance brain surgery.
I only want to shy away from the 2" option because that's another static variable you'll have to memorize while using the handcuffs. I'd rather go with players saying "well I think my guys are probably close enough to have control" and doing a WISG roll. 2" is also pretty close - having more than 3 guys within range of a hostage means that a lot more attention is going to be focused on what they're doing, not the captive. At that point it won't really matter who "controls" him. I suppose that having more than one faction within 2" would just confuse the fig and they wouldn't know who to trust yet.
