Just woundering what command I should realy be taking with beast herd units of 15;
5 Gors (two hand weapons) and 10 Ungors (spears)?
On top of that should the herd formations themselves be altered slightly.
Id get more Gors in the unit. Once they start to take damage in combat you will find yu wont have many left. Common ratios for herds are 12:8 or 8:12 gor/ungor.
As for command, always take a Foe Render and Musician. The standard is really up to you, but id advise against it and low Ld means herds will often break if the loose combat, and then the opponant (if pesuing) will get your standard for extra vps.
u must have more gors than ungors anyway... about command though u need to have a full 1 realy coz the foe render gives u better str, atk and ld. the standard will give u a base combat res of 3 (if u don't outnumber) and the musician is good 4 rallying if u run off. best to try and get a flank charge with them imo.
hope this helps
There is nothing saying you have to have more Gors than Ungors, its just minimum of 5 of each per unit.
(PS, please dont use txt speak)

It really depends on what the purpose of the squad is. A 15 size herd is a big enough size where a standard wouldnt be a bad idea. If you are using the squad only for screening then a standard isnt needed. If you are using the herd for combat then I would say take a standard. If you are taking the squad for combat, then I would also suggest to take more gors.

Thanks for all your suggestions and I will make sure to put them all to good use.
sorry i was in a bit of a hurry and i didn't know about the ratio of gors to ungors thing
