I remember that hireable henchmen (at the barracks) were an intended feature in Maj: Legends, and there was a lot of discussion on this topic during the older Maj3 thread. I'm very skeptical about it thematically, but in terms of strict realism, there's some logic to it. So, I don't know. Maybe just for warriors' guild residents, since they are an explicitly military force.
I think that they could give better feeling that heroes are special. Your kingdom won't be swarming in heroes-units, but heroes would be in small numbers and strong individuals. You could even distinguish between lone warriors and leaders.
