A strength indicator is a temporary HammerWiki term for the effect that all races have in WAR: As the character increases in relative power (level), his physical properties change.
Each race has a different strength indicator:
- Empire characters don't alter physically but are said to get more impressive equipment.
- Dwarfs grow longer beards.
- High Elves become "poshier".
- Chaos characters "mutate".
- Orcs grow in size.
- Dark Elves become "gothier".
It has been stated by Jeff Hickman that the system has been completely planned as to which race/career gets which Strength indicator at which level and that the upgrade is optional (so if you do not wish your dwarf to have a longer beard, you do not have to make it grow). The system will likely not be implemented into the original release of the game due to time constraints.
