Keep in mind the variety of unit types between races.
Sure - human civilization might have standard unit types (I`ll name good number of Human race units here and categorize them)
Infantry - Maceman, swordsman, thane, Halberdierman
Ranged - archer, crossbowman
Cavalry - things are a bit more complicated, as quite a few of unit units can be mounted + elite Knight units.
Siege - trebuchets, wall mounted siege weapons, siege ladders, siege ram, siege towers.
Livestock - a cow, sheep, pig, chicken.
But if we take Orcs for example, we have a totally different unit class picture. For example - the infantry units also server as builders and miners. Ranged units are hunters and food gatherers. Huge Ogre units are also livestock which grow in size, and can be slaughtered for food just like a cow.
And then again we have units for Elves such as Tree of War (Trent) which is a siege unit, resources gathering unit, mobile building, mobile tank unit - can be mounted by allot of other units.
