I'm a bit unclear about whether the units have a separate leader or is the figure included in the standard unit. For example would a regular infantry regiment have 12 figures and a leader or 11 and a leader to make up the 12? I ask because some places seem to show 13 figures and some 12 although it is difficult to tell. Of course, it may be a matter of choice as the rules are not prescriptive on unit size.

We always played a unit of 12 was 11 grunts and a leader.

I don't even use leader figs per se. I just have a Litko death's head marker I drop among the figs when the leader is hit.

Leader is always part of the group so 11+1 for regulars and irregular infantry and 15+1 for tribal infantry and 3+1 for artillery same for cavalry (not that I ever use cavalry as all my games take place in the Tsetse fly zone)

Well that's clear as mud

Shark, since all the people who answered the OP gave the same answer (leader is included in the total) I don't understand your response.

See the chap without a hat & a revolver, leading his 11 men? He's a leader.

Thanks to all of you for your comments. 12 including the commander it is.
