So, I have seen two interpretations of the cost for an ally.

1. Some post it is one gem per a figure i.e if I have three pirates on the board I can place 1-3 gems on their tile to activate that many models

or

2. Some post that it cost one gem to activate the tile similar to the Overlord. You then get to activate all of the models for that tile similar to the overlord.

I read Monolith's response on their forum and it could be interpreted either way:

"When thus Hero is in the Aggressive/Active stance, this Hero can spend 1 gem on the tile to activate 1 Ally.
An activated Ally has to move first and then attack (like the models from a Unit of the Overlord)."

It's one gem per model. This was clarified somewhere, can't fine the link.

It's one per figure. So, for example, if you want to move all 5 Belit's minions, you have to use 5 gems. Expensive? Yes, I know...

They are specific to refer to all the models associated with an OL's card a Unit. My interpretation: If they wanted to activate all the allies, they would have also called them a Unit of Allies, instead of 1 Ally.

It is 1 gem per figure; each ally figure is able to move AND attack when activated... still expensive, but not as bad as it seems

It seems expensive when using Belit's guards. Not as much when using someone like Slasher, who kicks ass.

Consider the alternative interpretation: one gem would activate 5 guards, for a total of 15 Movement Points and i don't remember how many attack dice. For a single gem, that would be a waaaaaay overpowered compared to other heroes' capabilities.

It really does force players to use the Guards to actually, you know, guard. Instead of just being a mobile strike force. The sacrifice ability makes them really useful even if they're not activating every turn.
