This convention report gives a lot of detail on Richard Borg's projected Ancients version of Battle Cry: Among the stable of eras that have been or are being developed for C&C, Richard and Pat tell me that the Ancients game (working title: BC: Ancients) is the most sophisticated. There are many different troop types, each with their own unique movement and combat capabilities. The broad classes are Mounted Troops, Dismounted Troops, and War Machines. Among the Mounted Troop types we used for the game are Light, Medium, and Heavy Cavalry and Elephants. Among the Dismounted Troops we used were Light, Medium, and Heavy Infantry, and Warriors.
