It looks like the Noble Houses will really feel a lot more like actual factions, not just generic enemies. I wonder if Orcs and Goblins get the same kind of treatment or will their distinction be limited to banners only? How about some paint job on shields? As far as I can recall shields are blank, but giving them insignia of a specific clan (with color, ideally) would help. You know, something like this.
I am glad to see the standard-bearer, but I wonder how impactful will it be in actual tactical combat. Because I think that the idea of killing an Orc Warboss or a Goblin Overseer is not really working too well in terms of helping to break down enemy morale. In practice it takes way too much effort for little to no tactical gain.
