What better way to improve Armies than with banners!

Provide Aura bonuses based upon race! Cheap Recruitment in TCs (Cost 2-3)

Human: Aura: Leadership or Heal
Elf: Aura: Heal (all life is precious)
Dwarf: Aura: Strengthen or Defense
Orc: Aura: Strengthen (Might is Right)
Undead: Aura: Lifelink
Scaledfolk: Aura: Highborn Presence

Firstly The banner carriers don't fit for all races.

NO bcoz
1.
3 Cost is too cheap for Aura units.
I Don't know if those auras are stackable self (think are not )

2.Elf have wizards and 'Fruit Ent for Heal Aura - might get a tower too.
No cheaper and no banner tipe for that role.

3)Dwarf have good buffers and armor.
Aura no need, easily becomes Op

4)ork and humans(will) have leader units for those roles.
(Orcs for multiple sources.-shaman Aura , leader, steingten)
4) we want to get rid the multiple auras for scalefolk,Not adding more!
No because -1.its cheap
2.Not subrace specific, for everybody

5.undeads (hopefully) will get blood knight with proper cost - for that Aura.
Also healers are planned.
(eg witch may get friendly lifelink)

(Cemetery Reaper - adds +1attack Aura. And cheap 3 cost.

Ok, how do you recommend the Use of Racial Banners in AoF?

I would like to see different flags for different Armies.

That can be done easily by editing the current banners - flag and holder.
And put as map editor.

(And that form even can add +1/1 arm +1attak Aura in range 3)

Can that be done in a way to be used for multiplayer?

That would add a new facet to AoF tactics.

Either it does something or can serve as decorated units.
Which would be simply one or two cost.
But it would look cool to have around your army.

It is to look cool in army. But it is supposed to do something that will allow a difference to be made on the battlefield.

It is meant to provide buffs to allied units, maybe even DEBUFF enemies, but that is not a requirement.

Banner Carriers don't have relatively high attack, but should have considerable durability, dodges, armor, or both depend upon race.
