I think that is part of the issue though. The units are extermely replacable (although some seem to level faster than others). There needs to be some feeling of accomplishment for building your army. If you had a level 25 archer that represents 3 weeks of gameplay, you wouldn't want to lose that unit in a battle. Perhaps 'dead' units are held for ransom and you have to pay a hefty fee to get them back / resurrect them. There should be some drawback for losing the unit, but it shouldn't be something that is insurmountable or cost you significant play time.
