So, a standard Imperial Guard infantry squad is 10 individuals. Part of the idea of the comrade system is to round out the squad, since we're assumed to have fewer than 10 players. Now, I have perhaps 3 players would I can rope into this. That's 3 PCs and 3 comrades, four short of a line infantry squad. A thought which I have has is to round out the rest of the squad with extra comrades… but what to do with them. Comrades don't act on their own and I'm not sure how the mechanics would support everyone doubling up on comrades.
So, other prospective Only War GMs, how would you handle this?
