    How do you rule?
Interesting idea.

It won't be easy or automatic, but it is sort of possible.

Most new followers will not innately also be natural leaders, but PC1 can attract a bunch of followers and train them up.  Assuming that he leads his band successfully and well they will advance and can learn the new followers talent.  Also the reputation of his team will increase, which should help with recruiting.
Once the first generation of recruits are trained up, a break from action to engage in a recruiting drive could lead to attracting a nice little band of new recruits (who  may need to be outfitted and supported during a training period to generate an appropriate command and control structure, and they must learn how to function as units) with each of the PC's direct followers as a platoon leader.

Not quite an army, but maybe a small mercenary or adventuring company could be built this way over a few years.  (unless of course the talent descriptions make it clearly impossible -i am commuting and cannot check the rules - in which case I would allow it anyway under the GM fiat clause).

Now there are some economic implications as well.  The band has to be supported at least as well as the next best job they qualify for on the jobs table, possibly with a danger bonus, to be incented to stay.  And once a first tier follower has a well trained, well equipt, veteran  platoon that is loyal to him, he may well be tempted to start a little band of his own.  Also the band may start to attract attention (positive or negative) from existing local powers.  So we are chock full of potential plot  twists for our little band.

So  I'd rule the way I usually do:
the player can try what he'd like to, and we'll see how it plays out in the game world.
