I think my “Dogs of War” submission had something like that, with basic civilians, militia, and various flavors of warriors.

>> In Book 4, stats are given for 'normal' humans.  The numbers listed for S, St, D & A for men and women are 'avarage' 2d10 rolls of 11+/- the mods for their race.  These are then given no multiplier other than 1 (as opposed to a minimum 1.5 for characters).  Now, I have no problem with the low multiplier...except that it doesn't work with the Constitution and still come up with a correct HPV if using (S+St+C)/4 (RU).  The reason why I say that is that for male humans, if the Constitution is only multiplied by '1', then the man would have a HPV=(14+11+11)/4=36/4=9.  Women would be HPV=(11+12+12)/4=35/4=9.
>> Now, this makes normal humans pretty weak...but that's not all...
>> Consider the EnL of both humans.  The book calls for EnL=35 for both men and women, but if the multipliers are all '1', then the male would have an EnL of only 22, and the woman only 25.
>> So...in order to make the numbers make sense, I would propose that the multiplier for the Constitution of normal humans be changed to '2'.  What would this do?
>> Male humans would have a HPV of 12 instead of 10, and an EnL of 33.
>> Female humans would have a HPV of 12, and an EnL of 37.
>> This way it keeps the calcs the same, but doesn't make them much different than they are in Book 4.
