Oh, I think Ossomer is getting a little short changed. He may prefer straightforward tactics, but we haven't seen very much of him to really judge him as a commander.
Well, he apparently came up with the bridge stall tactic of using Jetstone's mancers in conjunction with high leadership and heavies to keep the assumed numerically superior GK army at bay. Unfortunately, he fell for an elaborate veil. To give Ossomer credit, though, I did to and I have some degree of genre savy that meant I should have seen in coming where Ossomer has his knowledge of Ansom to fall back on.
Then, he's the one who suggested to Wanda that Jillian be attacked directly to quickly wipe out her fliers. Such straightforward thinking may have saved GK's bacon right there.
Finding a useful truisms regarding warfare and pounding them into you subordinate commanders is actually a pretty good way to set up a complex army.
