Just wondered how you guys upgrade your Marauder Horseman with command groups.
I usually just go with the full command if I'm arming them with flails and then add just a musician to my Marauders if I'm using them as a hit and run unit with throwing axes.
Let me know if you think it's worth the extra points putting full commands on all of my Marauder Horsemen units.
Oh and the only exception to the above is if I use the War Alter as I then have champions in all my units.
Thanks in advance.
I only add full command to my MoK'ed unit, the rest of my flail units have a musician.
The MoK unit is for the head on charges while I use my other flail units as flankers (idealy).
Besides: a captured standart is worth 100VP, and marauder horsemen die awfully fast.
I only EVER put a musician in my marauder horsemen units, total points waste otherwise, and if you have a warshrine, then your champion HAS to challenge, making the units hitting power that much less as the attacks are divided.

Musician is the most of the command group upgrades I'd buy for the Horsemen. They are my guided suicidal madmen on horses (read: they're going to die anyway, fast) so better just invest in equipments for raw hitting power so they could take down some guys with them. Other than the musician, which can help in bait-and-flee tactics, champion are not worth the points for 1 extra attack and banners ... well they're not gonna stay around much so no need for that.
Horsemen + MoK + Flails for dishing out some hurt, or MoS+Flails if you fancy baiting tactics.
All in all, better invest the points elsewhere. Like a unit of Knights or Ogres or anything else you have.
Yeah, the last thing I'd spend points on is a champion and standard for marauder horsemen. Those points are needed elsewhere and will have a bigger impact. I also then don't have to worry about my standard getting lost, which it will.

Thanks for the quick and excellent advice guys really appreciated.
I can now go away and build up my next unit of Marauder Horsemen without wasting any models on banner bearers.
