1812: The Invasion of Canada and 1775: Rebellion are my current favorite games, with Quartermaster General a close second.

I'll snag 879: Vikings – The Invasions of England and 1754: Conquest – The French and Indian War as soon as they are released. And I already have (and also love) Quartermaster General – Victory or Death: The Peloponnesian War.

I love the complexity level, player counts, Euro mechanisms, and play lengths that these games offer.

So what else would you suggest?

Alexander the Great- Take your Euro mechanics into battle with one of the greatest generals of all time!
Italia is a closer cousin to Small World but close enough to your liking to work.
Another vote for Polis: Fight for the Hegemony
13 Days: The Cuban Missile Crisis is good if you like your Euro mechanics spiced up with a bit of nuclear annihilation.

If you want to keep your Euro mechanics and jump up an order of complexity then you could try GMT COIN Series

Twilight struggle and hammer of the scots if you're willing to play with two.

Those are two of my favorites. I love QMG.

Dominant Species or Virgin Queen if you're looking to up the complexity and/or play time a little.

Star Wars Rebellion if you're into the theme.

It's not out yet but possibly Hitler's Reich. Fast playing card driven WW2 strategic. Maybe too much of a cross over with QMG but I can't get enough of that genre. I'm guessing with your own WW2 title in the pipeline at LnL, you have an interest in that conflict

If player count isn't super important, definitely check out Wir sind das Volk! and probably anything else from Histogame.

If I can impose with a question to someone who has and loves both Quartermaster General and the newer Peloponnesian War, do you feel it's worth owning both? Or if I have "original recipe" QC is the newer one less essential?

Love these games as well. I have no problem playing war games all along the complexity spectrum, but I love what these titles bring to the table. I got excited as well when I saw 879 and 1754 at GenCon. Can't wait for them to come out.

That said, I've also enjoyed these games in the relatively same spectrum:
War and Peace
Hundred Days 20
Mare Nostrum: Empires
Wilderness Empires

We just delved into a Columbia block game for the first time after years of hex and counter. My friend and I enjoyed Julius Caesar a lot. Can't speak for the others, but there are several of these titles that get very good reviews. We plan on another game of Julius Caesar tomorrow.

Lots of good suggestions already. I'd heartily second the suggestion of A Few Acres of Snow. I was less enthused about the Wallace/Treefrog wargames on Waterloo & Gettysburg. I still kept the latter, but sold off the former.

The point-to-point Columbia block games are a good next step. Quebec 1759, Napoleon: The Waterloo Campaign, 1815, and War of 1812 are worth a look. The latter, especially, might be interesting since you've already played the Academy Games title on that same war. You might enjoy seeing how another company, designer, and system tackled the same subject. I find I learn even more by getting to do a "compare & contrast" in my head with these games.

Similarly, Washington's War would offer a good alternative to 1775 that you've already enjoyed.

To tiptoe into hexmap wargaming, I'd recommend the Napoleon 20 series. If you can still find it, Fading Glory is a great production and introduction to this kind of wargaming.

If you can't find it, there are plenty of other Napoleonic 20 games in the series to choose from. Just sayin'...

In addition to the fine suggestions made already, the following should fit your criteria:

For a Euro-feel wargame, or wargame-feel Euro:

1944: Race to the Rhine

For something more akin to the Ares games you have:

Arnhem '44

Attack!

Axis & Allies: Battle of the Bulge

Axis & Allies: D-Day

Axis & Allies: Guadalcanal

Memoir '44

Napoleon's War: The 100 Days

Tide Of Iron - family of games

For wargames that use cards - not card-driven - that might fit:

Battle for Stalingrad

Frontline: D-Day

The Kaiser's Pirates

Last Front: The Strategy Card Game

Modern Naval Battles: Global Warfare - with expansions

Panzer General: Allied Assault - also East Front game

Spearpoint 1943 - with expansions

Not sure how to categorize:

D-Day Dice

Duel in the Dark - especially with expansions

Manoeuvre

A step-up in complexity:

Churchill

There are some wonderful block games:

Commands & Colors - family of games

HoldFast - family of games

Liberty: The American Revolution 1775-83

War of 1812

A little more of traditional, old-school wargames but would fit your criteria:

Anzio/Cassino

Mercury/Market Garden

Victory in the Pacific
