One thing thats always baffled me about AoA is the absence of rules for Command Groups - also referred to Champion Standard Bearer and Musician.
To my mind and hopefully most other people these make the "character" of the unit from an aesthetic view if nothing else.
Granted Champions you can buy for a VP cost when putting your army together.
Which leaves 2/3 of the minis in your little set useless apart from looking pretty and therefore a disincentive to paint etc when you could just knock out another couple of grunts.
And lets face it they always come in threes - unless its GW of course where you get those three and a couple of unit duplicates.........
I might trial the following - havnt calculated VP costs or anything...........
Standard Bearer - Standard adds +1 to the base morale of the unit - the last but one figure to be killed in combat ............that honour goes to the Champion of course!
Musician: Adds an optional +1 to the base movement - might come in useful on those charges that fall short - as above but buys the farm before the Standard Bearer
