Okay, now that all of the Faction sheets are updated it is time to turn to additional equipment and mercenaries. I'm going to need a lot more help on this part, so I wanted to start this thread so that we can discuss various items.
First up, I want to make musicians (horns/drums) available to all the races that are allowed to have them.
Horn/Drum....................4 Inf. (20 points)
+1 Courage for all members of the Battle Company as long as the bearer is alive.
Next, several of the companies have special rules that allow them to treat one of their heroes like a banner, so here's what I'm thinking about doing for the models that actually have banners.
Company Standard..........10 Inf. (30 points)
+1 Fight for all members of the Battle Company as long as the original bearer is alive. If the bearer is slain, place a marker on the table to mark where the standard fell. Anyone may pick up the fallen standard and carry it off the table (treated like a light burden). If the standard is recovered by the owning Company, the standard is returned to the warrior who dropped it after the battle, or if he should die from his wounds, be passed to another warrior. If it is taken by the enemy, the warrior who captured the standard gains +2 Experience, and a battle should be fought using the standard as the objective. If the standard is not recovered during this second game, then the standard is destroyed.
In addition, a Battle Company that possesses a Company Standard gains +1 Influence at the conclusion of each battle.
I'm thinking that Heroes should be restricted from carrying either of these pieces of equipment. What do you guys think?
