Okay, that's a fair point. As I said, though, Expense comes in degrees.
If it's, say, 500 or 1000 shmuckers, that would be well within JS's day-to-day operating expenses... and though it would guarantee that some JS units would not survive to next turn because they couldn't cover all that upkeep, it would still prevent the loss of far more in combat. I agree that it can't be 25000 or something seriously large. Just big enough you don't want to do it willy-nilly.
With those numbers too it would be fair to assume that the upkeep cost of all troops would be maintained. Since a portion of JS units were present for the battle and win or lose they were not all going to live. Good chance that a large portion if not all of the smaller cost range up there would not be missed.
Though I'm not sure they had to pay anything to promote Trem.
