Under the reform rule it stats that the leader (it doesnnot say champion) may issue a reform. So I ask can lords, heroes and standard bearers that are in or have joined a unit with out a champion issue a reform?

Any unit can reform, with or without a 'leader'. It's just fluff trying to give a bit of verisimilitude but there is no requirement for an actual leader - dogs, swarms or other units that you can't really imagine a leader giving orders can all reform.

Lord Inquisitor has the right of it. Any unit can do a Reform.

However, I do believe you are required to have a musician to do a Swift Reform.

The concept of the "unit leader" has been a part of the rules since at least 4th ed., more of a role than an actual model type. However, it seems that the designers assumed this concept was universally understood, so they left it at simply mentioning it.

Actually, 4th edition was when "unit leader" disappeared, wasn't it? 3rd editions "leader" and "champion" getting merged into one post.

That may be true. 4th ed mentions the unit leader but does not specify any rules for him.
