If your leader misses a fight due to injuries, but his warband wins the scenario, does the leader (who didn't even participate in the battle) still get the experience point for winning?

I'm guessing by strict interpretation of the rules it is 'yes,' but it just seems kind of weird to me.

I think because the model with the next highest leadership is leading the warband temporarily, they should get the point.

I agree with hero on this one.

It like the second in command showing his boss. "Look, I am quallified in case you die!"

I donít believe thereís a hard written rule about a Leader missing a game or two, about getting a Leadership point. My group handled this with some logic. When a Leader goes OOA, the next in commandís LD is the basis for Routing. As if the other members look to him for guidance. So if the Leader is out for a game and the next in command won the battle, then he should get the extra point for his winning strategy. And we also play, that if a member is out for a game, he doesnít get a point for surviving. Thereís not much risk sitting in camp with his feet up, reading the newspaper, and drinking a mug of Ale.

On p. 81 of the Living Rule Book:

"Warriors earn Experience points when they take part in a battle."

"If you look through the scenarios you will notice that warriors always earn +1 Experience point for surviving a battle."

So, a model that does not participate in "a battle" (scenario) do not earn experience. That would include a captain recovering from a wound.

Sweet, thanks for finding that.
