* Generals and captains do this in ''RomeTotalWar'' when units are ordered around the battlefield. There are also some variations, from a simple point forward with the sword to the commander spinning the sword above his head to the commander's horse (when he's mounted) rearing as the commander sweeps the sword forward in a grand gesture.
