As usual, overlord Rayhawk is right, though I think there should only be one-ish commanding fig at any time, whos orders are yelled around all minifigs.
when the order reaches a fig with comms equipment the order is transmitted to all others with one, who then yells it to the other figs he can yell to.

I've created a nice pic for easy clarification. with colors!

http://hyves.nl/index.php?l1=ut&l2=phot ... ecret=8uy3

as you can see, all blue troopers are connected with eachother. if you want one to do what you want all you have to do is make sure he is connected with your commander. the infiltrators 1 squad can follow orders because the commanders is linked through the radio, while infiltrators 2 had their radioguy shot, so they arent very usefull until they get their radio back online. if the radio was shot along with the commsguy theyd be in serious trouble, and the blue player would have to reestablish contact by moving a trooper along the yellow arrow. the same applies to the trooper with the black arrow, he wandered too far away from the main force with only one man linking him, and the enemy took advantage of that. note that the ninja does not have any links, because hes too damn awesome.

yeah I agree with tahthing, I like to assume that I'm one of the guys in the battlecruiser in the opening cinematic of Brood War
I can see everything that's going on, but I don't attempt to interfere. Despite the fact that I, as a human, have complete and total control of the situation, I prefer just to watch and laugh as my soldiers get horribly slaughtered for no reason

the commanding fig would be the general/chosen one that has the privilege to recieve its orders directly from you.
It does not have to be a hero or officer, it could be a simple minifig with special powers to communicate with the gods, or the guy holding the radio more powerfull than the others

Because then there'd be no game. Duh.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.
