...what do you supposed mediums do?

Maybe they also roll 4, but heavies ignore 1 sword.

That would be logical thinking if C&C:M has adopted the hit/ignore hierarchy of Samurai Battles.

I hope we'll see some new spin on battle mechanics.

Roll 3 but can move 2 and not battle same a blue spearmen in samurai battles and auxiliaries in c&c ancients.

I expect the auxiliary class of infantry to disappear leaving green units as skirmish light infantry with maybe some type peasant militia 2 dice and no ranged abilities

That would make the game easier to explain: 4-3-2, like cavalry...

And all 4 blocks I suspect units being able to ignore hits for certain units or cross-sword hits to make them play differently than ancients

And the same as battlelore the first edition. That was pretty much medieval though with some fantasy thrown in (I pretty much only played the historical parts of the game) So I think BL 1st ed is a good place to start to see how the units might act.

I think Samurai Battles is a better one.
Superior armor and status when battling - Check
Cavalry units increase to 4 blocks - Check
Heavy infantry battle dice are reduced from 5 dice down to 4 - Check
Light Bow Cavalry units can employ the Parthian Shot when they evade - this is new!

C&C:M = Samurai Battles - Honor&Fortune + Evasion/Parthian Shot ?

I already pre-ordered of course but I hope there's something more.
