"advanced" and "supreme" as for me does not fit living units of dwarves. Maybe for their mechanical units will fit better.

Otherwise good idea actually.

Agreed, supreme is an absotute statement, it doesn't fit them at all...

For humans, i guess you just need to swich over hardened over reinforced, so reinforced is tier 2 and hardened tier 3.

Dwarves i think they could share human ranks since a veteran is still a veteran, but for sieges, i think "enhanced" could fit as mid-term between basic and advanced.

It is just an idea but, what if for dwarves we use mithril and adamantium?

I know that mithril is the third tier of upgrades but we might consider them way of speaking for dwarves that are tied to metals and weapon/armor smithing.

I think it will not fit well.
Personally i do not like idea of naming units like "dwarven warrior", "mithril dwarven warrior" or "adamantium dwarven warrior".

Sounds like that they replaced part of their body with that metal.
Mithril and adamantium can fit though for tiered mechanical dwarven units when those will be added.
For siege or for some sort of golems.

What about expert and superior?

The reason I wouldn't go with a similar approach to rank naming for dwarves is because each army has their own style of ranking.

For siege equipment how's this:
Humans: Basic > Reinforced > Advanced

Dwarves: Basic > Plated > Superior
