    According to p.104 of Clash of Eagles, sub commanders can be used to channel follow me orders. If they can do that there is no reason why they can’t also channel rally orders. My assumption though is that because the brigade commander is channelling his orders through the sub commander, then he can only give one rally order or one follow me order, both these orders are his last. Similarly since the sub commander doesn’t have his own Staff Rating he won’t be able to add die to units he accompanies in melee, since you need a staff rating of 8 or more to add dice in melee. From what I see, the sub commander really only reduces the distance from the brigade commander to the units being ordered.

    However it will be interesting to see how others play it.

    I note, from rereading Clash of Eagles, that I made a mistake with my previous post. The last paragraph does enable sub-commanders to add dice in melee. This seems like a step to far for me and a bit of steal at only 10 points each, especially as a blunder result by the sub commander does not stop the commander continuing to give orders.

    Regards
