What do you guys think about an army where everybody has a banner. The banners would be used to distinguish between squad members.
The banners in question would be sticking out of the backpack (they are marines) and would flop backwords.
This idea came from seeing pictures of samuri with their banners on.
Sounds cool, but think about the practical side of this project:
transporting the guys can easily become a nightmare, takes lotz of time etc...

Please do not get annoyed on my spelling: i am not a native speaker...
This sort of what I plan to do with my Witch Hunters Army. I just like the idea of distinguishable units.
I'm buying a few "banner" sprues from the WH line soon, perhaps I'll post my results.
i think that army would look sweet and maybe you could give everyone in your army like a katana or that chain sword
"Learn to shorten your reach! If your foe can come close enough to negate your striking power, all strategem is lost and when all stratagem is lost, the battle is lost."

It would look really cool, but it would take forever...
Do you mean using different banners for every single model, or different banners for every unit?
Watch out, he is very vicious.
I used to have no banners in my army, but since a while ago I created one for each veteran sergeant, character and other important stuff. Perhaps the next step is to give everyone a piece... or perhaps not... <_<
i like the idea, but then you could also take lots of your time and make your guys kinda samurai form and stuff. Like the bolters could have dragon heads on them and instead of chainswords have samurai swords! Just a thought.
Damn straight homies! Of course tau kill SOB then they go on a pantie raid
I'm gonna start with banners for every unit (not an Imagifer model, a custom banner), but I may evolve it to include every model.
I think putting a banner on every single model is overdoing it, but will look very nice on the squad leader or carried by a member of the squad. (who dies last of course )
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
That's because you're probably thinking in terms of regular WH40K banners. I'm talking more along the lines of scale sized banners, smaller, to fit each troop.
Something like this, only, perhaps smaller:
The banners would sport certain latin words, perhaps, and iconography of the Inquisition, et cetera.
