Clan Chief & Chief Officer Markers (Jacobite Rising)

In the Tricorne - Jacobite Rising, each army may field in some scenarios special units that have a Clan Chief marker for the Jacobite army or a Chief Offcer marker for the Government army. These units are special in that a unit with a Clan Chief or Chief Offcer marker represents a unit that historically performed exceptionally well in battle. Perhaps this is due to training, battle experience or having an inspiring person in charge. Whatever the reason, when a Clan Chief or a Chief Officer marker is marking a unit in a battle scenario, the unit’s abilities are enhanced. Although these units have enhanced abilities, a unit with a Chief marker is still treated as unit for most all game purposes.

When a scenario has special units that have a Clan Chief marker for the Jacobite army or a Chief Officer marker for the Government army, place the maker on the units as indicated by the scenario map. A Jacobite Clan Chief marker is normally found with a Highland unit. A Government Chief Officer marker is normally found with a Government Regular Infantry unit.
