In an effort to be helpful, I direct you here.

I will also give the warning (as there has been someone posting on here recently who did the same), that if you keep pestering people for a cut and dry solution to make units and eras, you will be met with a less than joyful reception.

So try to work through it on your own, read it all, and if you can demonstrate that you've at least tried to figure out how to do it on your own, and can field some reasonable questions, people will be more than willing to offer advice.

1. download an example era
2. change all the files to suit your own needs
3. check the WML Reference if you have questions about a specific tag
3. post here when you have more specific questions

Open Wesnoth.
Click the Add-ons button.
Download something.
Go to your Wesnoth folder, go inside userdata/data/campaigns and open the folder of the add-on you just downloaded.
Open the .cfg file and search for a [unit] tag.
I'm just... a guy...
I'm back for now, I might get started on some work again.
