Speculation

The figures above seem to be the two extremes: Stanley is disgusted that even a Chief Warlord could cost over 1000 per turn (suggesting it is one of the highest he has encountered), and Parson seems shocked that Decrypted Ansom would have no upkeep at all. It is quite possible that regular uncroaked and other low-level units might cost 0 or near 0 schmuckers, but probably not uncroaked warlords.
It is not known if any upkeep goes to the Unit itself (as a wage), or if it all simply disappears.
