Hmmm... I was going to put a standard and commander in every unit as I just like the look. I can always put a token next to the units that actually have them in

thats fine i think Jeremy. You just need to note it on your force list if they are an Std Bearer in games terms (for example)

So long as your opponent knows which ones are real and which ones are just aesthetic I don't see a problem with the people you're likely to be playing.
Try it with any of the uber serious players though and there would be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Mind you as they'd be the ones turning up with a 1st Edition Samurai army made up mainly of characters...you'd probably want to avoid them anyway :)

I suspect I will only be playing WAB against other Forum members, so I reckon I’m safe!

The Purporians shall only carry one standard into battle.
A glorious resplendent totem decorated with the dismembered dongs of our enemies.
Watch them wobble about in the wind. Hail Purporia, glory, glory, etc.

Doesn't Purps already have a Purporian standard like that in his front garden?

Going to be making my own movement trays I think. Can't seem to find ones to suit, I'm sure if I figured out the dark art of Warbases ordering system I could but I can't be arsed. Bit of plasticard or plywood with a lip round it should do.
