As I slide deeper and deeper into this...sickness, this "gaming," I wish to branch out to explore things more and more foreign to me. Like the daredevil seeking out newer, more lethal experiences, I would like some recommendations for wargames where the formation of one's tiny mans has an impact on play.

Who would like to get the ball rolling here?

I would recommend some additional ancients games besides Pokey's suggestion:

For higher complexity - Chariots of Fire or something else in the Great Battles of History series;

For lower complexity - Commands & Colors: Ancients

Napoleon's Triumph like Derry said.

Also by the same designer Guns of Gettysburg which is still in print. You have to maneuver to create lines of battle. Once the troops get locked in battle the lines begin to form around that area which is interesting. You also learn to keep a reserve to counter attack or help reform a line.
