Any chance of army standards being introduced in the game? Flags would be cool....

it will add nothing to the game, but ...

YES ! right :) that can be cool ;)

imagine a "vexilarius" with his lion skin and his standard ...

by the way, in the Roman army, standard keepers were officers or sub-officers of the centurio.

Do you think that they should be just "added" graphically to the unit (1 legionaire could keep the standard)
or added as an independant unit, just like the centurio ?

It could work. The standard was a matter of great pride to the legions. Make the standard bearer easy to kill, and have him give large combat bonuses to his pertaining troop or whatever (similar to the Centurion, I suppose). If he dies and the standard falls, there could be some sort of large penalty to the troop.
