The units will be group in lines (equal a base unit with all it's upgrade unit), and will start organizing them in their train buildings. The list starts first the the common trained units that consumes only food and wood to be trained, and only tent population:

The advantage of this line is that has a shield, bonus fighting spear units and very good ROF. The disadvantage are not a good piercing armor, high cost and being a foot unit. These units are good to counter spear units and very resistant against range units. Just need to keep them away from cavalry.

The disadvantage are not a good piercing armor, not having a shield, high cost and being a foot unit. These units are good to counter spear units and fighting large numbers of enemy at a time. Just need to keep them away from cavalry and ranged units.
