Why not treat a heroic sacrifice like a heroic weapon? Add another die to the roll, use whichever comes highest. Boom.

"Leader" Stats

Every time a player has a hero use a feat to "summon reinforcements" or "motivate the troops", the player rolls a D6. The resulting number is the number of times the opposing player(s) may kick the original player in the nuts for attempting such a shitty feat. (No critical failures, unless the kicker(s) screw up. Critical successes still apply.)

If there are multiple opposing players then they all get to kick d6 times.

I think the officer would be better off as being similarsimilar to the 2005 ed one that makes squad forming free, but I would add some cp and give it a minor buff effect, for example one officer could give a +1 bonus to skill, damage, move, or armor, and you could pick an effect each time he joins or forms a new squad. (Not when reforming a squad though, and you would have to wait one turn after disbanding a squad to form one, otherwise people would choose move buff, move up to an enemy, reform and pick skill buff, attack, reform and pick damage buff, then reform and pick armor before the turn ended. LOL for OPness)

Squad forming is going to always be free in bw2010. The Officer skill bonus is only going to apply to Actions that the Officer takes part in, and like everyone else, Officers only get one Action per turn, so there's a hard limit on how often you can use his bonus.

How about a "General" unit (higher-ranked than a common Ociffer), that would grant broad-reaching army-wide bonuses, but also a severe penalty if killed or captured?

For example:

General (+3 CP):
A unit with this ability is able to make his commands heard across the battlefield, and entire armies follow his lead. As a full-round action (taking up their Attack and Move for that turn), a General may impart one of the following bonuses to the whole army of their faction by instituting sweeping changes in doctrine and strategy:

Hold the Line: +1 to Armor
Strike Fast: +1 to Move
Strike Hard: +1 to Damage
Best of the Best: +1 to Skill Rolls

A General may switch to granting a different bonus with another full-round action.

A General is subject to the same Crankiness rules as Heroes, so you can have multiple Generals on the battlefield, granting different bonuses, but having to compete with each other for asserting command and having the shiniest bling-of-war will drive them nuts.

If your General is killed or captured, the bonus they were granting turns into a penalty instead. So a +1 to Armor becomes a -1 to Armor if your General is forcibly removed from duty. So the more Generals you have, the more potential for the enemy to seriously gimp you.

Obviously, the bigger the armies on the field, the more this specialty will pay dividends with net boosts of stats.
