I was just thinking how about implementing an officer-type unit? I don't know if you already have this, but the officer would be perhaps like a mini-hero, in the sense that he comes 1 per unit and is a little stronger than the average warrior. He would be quite expensive, but take few command points.
The point, however, of the unit is the leadership capablities. The Officer would be specialised in 1 type of leadership, either: Archer, Infantry or Cavalry. Whether that be you have 3 officers to buy or one who can be upgraded with one of leadership choices. Then that officer would aid fellow troops by, say, giving +50% Armour and +50 Damage to Infantry, +50% damage and +50% attack speed to archers and +50% armour and +50% speed to cavalry in a small-to-medium radius around him. It would be a valuable unit, that would greatly help the troops. Of course it would be a bit expensive to balance him out.
And the leadership would not stack, so if you buy 2 archer leaders for a small group of hordes the leadership remains the same. Thus spamming officers would not give you an advantage.
I suppose the history around it would be just the fact they are battle-hardened veterans that inspire fellow troops to do greater damage and fight harder, which they probably had in Middle-Earth.

It would take some time to implement and balance it. But otherwise, it's basically a very original and good idea, I like it !

But what would have become of games like Starcraft, Warcraft 3, Dungeon Siege, Half-Life 1-2, Neverwinter Nights and BfME 1-2 if we, modders, weren't there ? They would have long been forgotten. Modding is hard, but it's an honorable thing." - MorrisB

Greymane the Warg is an officer-type unit, I might also make officers for the other factions. Here's some ideas for that (I would like the offivers to have unique names and only one of them could be in play at any time):
- Mahud for Evil Men
- Ghan-buri-Ghan for MotW
- Gildor for Elves
- Dwalin for Dwarves
- don't know about the rest...
