Keep in mind that on your turn you can move a soldier marker in or out of your army at any time from any territory that your hero is in (see below). It costs no hero action points to do this. Perform this function if you are leaving a territory with your army. If you take 1 of your soldier markers out of your hero’s army mat and place it on the territory, you will be able to collect the resources for that territory on your next resource stage. This is a very smart way to expand your territories and widen your resource base. If you feel your army will be threatened by attack after your move, you do not have to leave a soldier marker behind. You will simply be giving up that territory and will not get the resources for it on the following turn.
