Must say that (in my opinion) compared to the other ways to get glory, the amount you get for winning a combat is a bit meagre, especially at the beginning of the game when your axes stat is still a bit low. Of course pillaging works toward the endgame stat bonus as well - so that more than makes up for it.

Yeah, outside of Age 3, picking fights for Glory doesn't feel all that great. However, it feels like the real purpose for Axes isn't to reward you for picking fights, it's to be a disincentive for Loki players to pick fights with you. Or at least, to give you some benefit when the Loki player picks a fight with you.
Especially if they have that Upgrade that lets them re-invade on a loss, it's just so easy to pick fights with a superior foe and then play the battle cards that loot Rage or Glory from the winner. A good Axe tech will make that play painful.
