Reasonable changes, though I suspect that once we try it we will find that the commander himself still needs incentive to do something in battle besides hiding.  That's why with Fried Tomatoes the commander must remain in the thick of the battle and receives an additional bonus for getting kills himself.

Originally, the hiding was a balancing factor - you got this guy who could increase your forces unfairly, but he couldn't participate in the fight, so you were one man down until he called in that unfair advantage. Meanwhile he's hiding out in the back line, making himself a more and more valuable target each turn he piles on another strategy brick.

So it'd be nice to force him into positions of danger - maybe he has to be in range and "see" the enemy casualties in order to get strategy from their deaths - but I want to preserve that disadvantage of having one fewer minifig actively fighting.
