Banner and Standards

RonarchRonarch Junior MemberRegistered Users Posts: 42
Watching great battles, swordmen fighting skeletons or orcs in cinematic mode is so much of a joy.
It feels like creating a new scene of LOTR.
But without any banner and standards on the battlefield, it looks seriously missing something and not so realistic.
So please CA, can you give suitable units (not cyrpt horror/hellhounds/giant etc.) banner/standard/flag (holders) so the battle will look even more awesome.

    Humans, Dwarfs, Orcs, Chaos, and also some skeleton units should carry banners and flags. It is a visual aspect only but on every picture for marketing purposes you see banners (not game engine pics of course). Would be truly awesome to have them carry not only one banner but a couple like here

    or there

    Yes, totally. It's for visual only, and is visually awesome. This is a large proportion of the Total War series imo.
    The number and the appearance of banners/flags should evolve according to the veterancy of the unit as well.
    But step by step is always fine. Just single and simple of them for each unit first. Take your time CA.

    Not only Standart Bearers, also Musicians are missing. But I'm sure they will be added soon.

    It is weird that things such as unit commanders and standard bearers is not in this game. It is very standard for the TT and previous TW games have also had it. I really hope they implement it. Something just feels wrong when you research a tech that is supposed to add musicians and standard bearers. But there is no visual aspect to it.

    Compared to previous totalwar's Banners in the Warhammer universe some are actually imbued wtih Magical Auras or as important to them as the Imperial Eagle standard is to a Roman faction.

    Musicians seem like a luxury wish to me at this stage. But yeah, it will be cooler than awesome if they are there.

    Can't blame some players think TW:W is so barebone compared to previous titles. I agree too.
    Luckily it appears to be a smooth barebone, rather than a buggy fat body.
    It just needs a ton of content to furnish it to be a great game.
