Welcome to Librarium Online!
Do you reveal your units marks when setting up or not? We've discussed it a bit today, but we couldn't really find any rule that clearly stated one thing or another
That depends if you play open or closed lists.
Where i play we have open lists so yes i reveal the marks before the battle
I reveal my marks when someone targets them with something that the mark benefits or in the compulsory moves ( per mark of khorne charge rules) part of the movement phase, if someone is deploying units based on YOUR units marks, that pretty lame... that's like asking what magic items I have and avoiding someone who has ap oint blank area of effect item/spell.

Well my models is very old and have the same color's theme in me army. And i do think thet the varius of marks have there own color's but i like to change marks depending on how i play to so i made a simpel thing.
I took the old book and printed the banner's into me computer and colored them and printed them oute. And now me oponent can see what mark i have , and if i change marks from battle to battle i use somthing called permagum (its like a removebel chewing gum) and then i just stick the ather too it =)) and its a simpel whay to show what mark u have as i think u should
Discuss it with your opponent, and, if you can't agree, roll a D6.
I haven't played yet, but I imagine it going something like this;
This is my general, these are my casters, this is a unit of Nurgle Chosen and they will eat you alive.
I would say after deployment, but definitely tell them who has what mark.
At the tournament i'm in we play Marks as magical equipment, so they get revealed when their used.
Not that it makes any difference, since I colour my horsemen and knights according to the mark they carry :p
marks are by no means magical or equipment. They are a rules set.
This really is a question between you and your opponent. I play only for fun, so I inform my opponent of everything in my army list during or after deployment before we start the game, just like I roll for my magic spells and inform him of who has what spells.
In other enviroments, locales, whatever, some people prefer to play without divulging any info until it's pertinent (ie combat, oh by the way, these guys are nurgle) etc.
Its just how you and your opponent wish to play.
So all in all, there's no set rule for it
Nope. I intend to paint all my units to represent specific marks, so it'll be pretty obvious. That said, the majority of people agree that informing your opponent of marks is the "gentlemanly (c) Games Workshop 2009" thing to do. It's totally up to you and the group you play with, though.
