Have you noticed, that terrain does not allow for proper spacing or step-wake-step action? So your input on poor positioning is mute. Pathfinder won’t fix 3+1 AP cost tiles.
If you don’t belive me, try figting 10+ alps in mountains/super dence forests, while you are forced to move in conga lines between multiple elevations, so you phisically cannot wake everybody nor fall back.
In this situation only the 100+ res bro may reliably spearhed the advance, or entire congo line being put to sleep and the tip is dying, while rear bros being waked and failing morale.
Btw, this fight ended with only 1 damage cast allowed, only bacause I rushed in 3 more bros to take care of this mess.
