Is it worth it to organize training units in order to have your eventual replacements gain XP?
Meaning a cheap OHQ level unit on "field training" garrisoned in a town with a high-level barracks, with the purpose of using these trained recruits in setting up better-equipped formations.
Similarly to how you'd train a conscript force.

I've seen it mentioned that it is worth it to recruit replacements to the SHQ in advance so that they get training, but I´ve only seen them reach 10 XP.

Cheers

Trainign depends on commaner, and other troops in teh unit:

quote:

Free Experience PointsThere is free Experience gain without combat up to around 20 XP.This can be (much) higher if you have Experience Classes Regular, Seasoned or Veteran present in the Unit.It can also be higher if your Relation with the Commander is >50 (and inversely lower if Relation is lower<50). Relation plays an important role in the willingness to make a maximum effort.Basic increase per round is +2 XP, but this can be higher if you have non-Green Veterancy Class present in the Unit.It can also be higher when certain Postures are chosen for the Formation like “Field Training”

Handbook, 5.10.5.1. Experience

Training is the moste usefull, if there is a high Veterancy Level unit around. they both give more XP to other units and allow a higher training cap. I think you ran into the training cap:
With Regular it can go up to 10
With Seasoned up to 20
With Veteran, up to 40

Example from the Handbook (I can not follow it completely myself):
"For example a Unit with 2000 Veteran infantry that looses 200 of its infantry and gets 200 new Green infantry assigned. The training XP maximum will be put at (2/20 * 20 XP) + (18/20 * 50 XP) = 47 XP and growth will be at (2 * 2/20) + (10 * 18/20) = +9xp extra growth per round. So within like 5 rounds those Green replacements will be Seasoned due to the coaching and good examples and instructions given by the Veteran"

Ah I see!
Thanks for clarifying that for me.

So I good strategy would be to form a training unit out of a cadre of experienced troops under the command of a commander that likes you?
