Hi,
I vaguely remember discussions about what stat bonus is given to troops per experience level.
I did not find materials on the forum. Only wh32edit has a tooltip that DO mechanics must be similar to table-top warhammer. It mentions that WS and BS have +1 +2 +3 bonus for 2, 3, 4 levels.
It is relatively easy to test it for BS, as it has direct affect on shooting rate. Here's a small table for XBow

BS Lvl Time (sec, 10 shots)
3   1    95
4   1    78
5   1    60
6   1    52

4   2    60
4   3    60
4   4    60

We can see that having BS=4 and level 2, 3 or 4 gives the same rate as level 1 with BS=5. So it looks as though the only bonus to BS is given at level 2, and archers of level 3-4 do not have any additional BS bonus.

This information implies that experience level bonus is rather similar to that of SoTHR than of TableTop Warhammer. I remind, troops in SoTHR have the following:
Level 2: +1WS (+1BS for archers)
Level 3: +1T
Level 4: +1W

My own experience of playing DO says that this simple table is close to true. The only thing is, I noticed that troops become much tougher at Lvl3 than +1Toughness would have given. Probably at level 3 troops have +1wound, and maybe +1toughness at level 4.

Very interesting many thanks. Maybe examining the cheat code FUDGEISLUSH in IDA and then Increase selected unit's experience  [Ctrl] + C + E would show what values are set. Or Roster cheats Enter "dontmesswithme" at the roster screen to enable the roster cheats. Then, press the following keys to activate the corresponding cheat function:Full experience for all units  [Ctrl] + C + F

Although Aqrit has probably already done this ->

Cool thanks a lot!
I assume by level 1,2,3 you mean level up to level 2,3,4 respectively?

It always seemed to me that 4th part enemies (lvl3) are harder to kill than enemies in Northern Wastes (lvl2). But maybe it was just an impression, and no toughness or wounds bonus is added until level 4.
