In several lists I have seen "full command" written. For example
x5 Chaos Knights- MoK-full command
Does full command mean that it includes a standard bearer and a musician? Sorry for this newbie question, but I am just getting into the hobby.
So full command includes all 3 of these.
But take care! It's often not wise to take a full command, a banner in a speedbump or bait unit is just a way to give your opponent free victory points.
Thanks for the prompt reply. These forums really are a wealth of information.
I have another relatively newbie-type of question. How important is WYSIWYG, typically?
For example, I have 5 chaos knights that I am putting together currently. From a gameplay perspective, I think I prefer the ensorcelled weapons. However, from a purely cosmetic standpoint, I prefer the look of the lances on these models.
How "wrong" would it be to put lances on the knights, then say that they are carrying ensorcelled weapons during a game?
Raspyn, when modeling a unit, many players will create models with a variety of weapons. You might make most of your marauders with hand weapon and shield, for example, but include five or so guys with flails so that you can move them to the front rank when you want to run the unit with flails. Needless to say, that's much more doable with infantry than cavalry.
I don't know where I've heard this, but this is how me and my friends play. If the unit only have one weapons configuration, at least 75% of the models have to have the correct equipment. If the unit have two or more weapons configurations, like our Warriors with hand weapons and shields and halberds or example, 50/50 have to be equiped with each configuration, or the right weapons are represented on the models.
WYSIWYG is very important for the right feeling for the game. But that's a personal preference.
