LMs get their pet appearances through skills. So, I have unique appearances for the Bear and Raven. As a result, I have two Bear skills -- the normal one plus one for the Wildpaw Bear -- and two Raven skills -- the normal one plus one for the Blood Raven.
I think it would be appropriate to do something similar for the Heralds. Our Standards could have the +X Herald Armour effect added to them, and then the old Armament items could instead grant a summon skill for the associated Herald appearance.
Of course, that would result in four new summon skills per Armament, which gets messy really quickly. Probably one of the reasons it's taking so long to merge the Standards and Armaments is that RockX is trying to avoid creating a huge number of Call to Arms skills.
Off the top of my head, another way to resolve the problem would be to add toggle skills for the different Herald appearances. Or, Almagnus' favourite suggestion, integrate Heralds into the Skirmish Soldier system, though I've always assumed that there's some technical reason why that either can't be done or would be more trouble than it's worth.
