Right, here's the topic of the week:
Do you use full command, part of the command or no command, what parts of it do you use, what do you base your decisions on and what units do you use it on/doesnt use it on?
"The more choices you force the opponent to make, the better the chance for you to capitalize on his mistakes"
Here's my basic rules...
1) everyone gets a musician
2) if they need a magic banner, I'll give them a banner
3) if I ever plan on putting a character in the unit, I will take a champion to have options available for challenges
4) if I take a champion, I always take a banner
I take Banner and Musician always and the champ on Marauders (always) and Warriors (when I have points leftover). I never take one on Knights (20 points is a lot for an attack).

I always adress the needs of the unit and think about what i'm using it for first.
If i had a massive unit of marauders, then taking a champion to get an extra attack by sacrificing a back ranker is fine, as is adding the standard as i'm using them for combat res. Conversely, in a unit of warriors I don't have many, so losing one from a rear rank to give a single extra attack isn't a good idea when i already have 2 each, and they will kill enough to not need a standard - and the same applies to knights. Chosen are slightly different in that sometimes i'll take a champion just to have access to the book to give me a lv.1 shadow caster. i'll do this if i don't run more than one magic casting hero/lord.
and of course - everyone gets a musician.

Yeah, everyone gets a musician, agreed.
Champs... I use for character protection or distraction, as needed, otherwise I won't buy them. Except Chosen, there are plenty of different 25pt items you can put to good use.
Banners... VERY light on banners, even with the VP nerf they're still annoying to lose. Only my primary blocks get these, and they're usually magical.

I always thak a musican and standard champs if im going to be placing an exalted.
In my diversion units (10 units of maurders naked) i take nothing because these guys are just meant to hold up my opponent.
with the combat reform, yes, every1 gets a musician, bef4 that, well in 7th i lost combat on my flank by 1, thanks to a musician, turns out i was outnumbered, by a fear causing unit and needed snakes, my whole battle line fell apart from losing in a tied combat becuz i didnt take a musician arghhh, the next day, i still didnt take it cuz its generally not worth it, but now, yes! reform is awesome!!
I would love playing you when we roll up blood and gloryBanners... VERY light on banners, even with the VP nerf they're still annoying to lose. Only my primary blocks get these, and they're usually magical.
