    Define the term...

    "Full Command"

    I'm sorry, I'm really new to the game, and to this site. I looked it up in every possible search engine, and I got no definition. From context, I figure it probably means banner, musician, champion in a unit. Like maximal upgrades. Am I right?

    "Full Command" means that the units command groups is full, having a champion, a musician and a standard bearer.

    Sweet! Thanks guys. Sorry about all the noob posts too. I just got into WHFB like a month ago, and I'm still learning.

    Everyone has to start somewhere.

    Often in Army lists, they'll be called FC, or full comm (personally, I use the latter, but I think the former is more common).

    As for units that can't take a full command (like Zombies- they get a banner and a musician), I call them a full command if I take all they can have. Not sure about everyone else though.

    Yeah, I usually say, "I got banner, musician, and a champion." Full command is much quicker and defined.

    This game is so deep-seeded. It's basically invented its own vernacular parallel to DnD's. I wish someone had a glossary of Warhammer terms.

    *checks Site Feedback, Introductions, and WHFB General forums*

    That's funny- I could have sworn there was such a thread somewhere there.

    Oh well, I may as well have a go at one some day in the future.

    When I was starting out WHFB I drew up a 3000 point list of every army so as to help me decide what to go for. Within the first list 'Champion Musician Standard Bearer' went to 'Full Command' until finally 'FC'.

    Some things just don't need writing.
    I can't say I've seen it all but I live for the things that keep me hollow.

    This reminds me of one of my old 40k Imperial Guard list written almost entirely with acronyms:

    CS: JO (ID, BG), Mortar, Vet (Standard, BG)
    HWS: 3 LC, LI
    HWS: 3 LC, LI
    HWS: 3 AC, LI
    HWS: 3 AC, LI
    Mortar Squad
    HV: 8 Vets, 3 Plasma, ML, Vet Sarg (BG)
    HV: 8 Vets, 3 Plasma, ML, Vet Sarg (BG)
    HV: 8 Vets, 3 Plasma, ML, Vet Sarg (BG)
    CS: JO (ID, BG), 3 Plasma, Vet (Medic, BG)
    IS: Plasma, HB
    IS: Plasma, HB
    CS: JO (ID, BG), 3 Plasma, Vet (Medic, BG)
    IS: Plasma, HB
    IS: Plasma, HB
    RR: 8 /w HL, Vet
    RR: 8 /w HL, Vet
    RR: 6 /w MB, Vet

    Or something like that anyway.

    I tend to use CMS as an abbrev. for champion, musician, standard. This means there's no ambiguity when a unit of zombies, for example, has "full command".

    It would be written:

    20 zombies, MS

    or if I didn't want 1 option:

    10 orcs, C,S

    I bont have to write everything out longhand, and don't have one generic abbreviation, its more flexi.
