Commander cards in "Battles of Westeros"!

One of the components in the "Battles of Westeros" is the so-called Commander cards:

Commanders play a very important role during the Battles of Westeros.

Each of them command different unit types, have different abilities, like being stalwart or having several toughness degrees.

At the upper right of the commander card there is a picture of the unit type, which the choosen commander orders.

On each battle plan its written which one is in command. Due to the fact that many commanders have multiple versions, also the version of each commander is included to the battle plan.

Each commander card has 2 sides; the so called “uncommitted” and “committed” side.
The side with the full color portrait of the commander is the uncommitted side and should be placed face up at the beginning of each battle.

Each commander card has a command limit and a capture rating.

The command limit specifies the number of command tokens which may be used by the commander.

The capture rating shows how many hits must be done in a single attack in order to capture the commander. This could be a subject of an attack, after all figures in a commander’s unit has been eliminated.

On each commander card there is a unit ability and commit ability descriptions.

Each commander unit, which is a unit with a commander figure as a banner bearer, has a special ability, which can be used anytime during the battle.

Commit abilities are special effects that can normally be used only once during an entire battle.

After use, the commander card is flipped to the committed side. On this side there is only a text for the unit ability!

Just one of them:
