For B3 will heros who are treated as banners (Amdur, khandish king) count as banners for victory conditions?

I'd be curious to hear how other people have been playing it but my inclination would be no, they don't count as banners for victory conditions.

My experience has been that amdur hasnt survived to the death so it hasnt come up in a game it only came up in my writing of lists for B3

My .02 is that they are treated as banners in all other respects. What is the difference between Boromir of the White Tower or Halbarad with the Banner of Arwen Evenstar and Imrahil or Amdur?

To be honest the likes of Boromir and Halbarad are superior banners because they don't go away when the hero is killed unlike the living banners. Likewise a Mumak may well be a banner, but it is a very dangerous one to use effectively.

To me a "treat like a banner" means just that. All rules and scenario conditions apply to that model.

It was my understanding as well, that the Heros as banners counted as banners that survived under the new rules. This also evens out the issues with awarding scoring points as some armies have no actual banner available to them but do have a hero that acts as a banner.

Just my 2 cents as well. Spend it as you will, but the economy has made it only worth 1 cent now anyways.
