just a suggestion add pavis archers for humans... a pavis shield is a large oblong shield of the late 14th through the early 16th centuries, often covering the entire body and used by archers. in total war pavis archers had crossbows and a pavis shield strapped to their back, this allowed them to turn their back to the enemy while they reloaded their crossbows. it would add in my opinion a interesting element to the game. giving humans a defense against the superior elven archers. :D

Or similar placements in the ground near a siege camp perhaps as an upgrade? This would give attackers a bit of an easier time charging the enemy, it would provide defence bonuses...
However i cannot see these implemented as they would require the programming of a default movement out and back into cover while attacking... Also it would just be time consuming and rather pointless in the end...

The planting stakes ability for human archers sort of does this.
