Hi, this is from the CSW CCA forum some hours ago:

YES!

If I can get things together in the next few months...

Nothing more (by now), but it is already a lot!

So it could be an expansion or a new game...
From what I heard in the past I would say the latter, but we will see!

I also suspect it would be the latter, from RB's earlier comments. He has previously intimated that both biblical and Byzantine warfare fall outside the tactical scope of C&C:Ancients, and would require their own games......but a hint that one of them is in the works is still fantastic news!

I hope (though don't expect) they will take the opportunity to add something really original to this version, components wise. Not just the same blocks with slightly different art plus some few rule and deck changes.

For example, a single sculpt for the unit and some way to mark hits, so that it looks good and is easy to manipulate. I don't think I will buy if it is not very different...

i see your point of view, but in that case they should change the dices plus the deck plus...plus...plus...i dont think that is it possible.
For me is an instant buy even if they publish only a scenario book, but hey thats just me

Yes. I was inquiring about Adrainople for C&C A. Very un represented in board gamming.

However, looks like Napoleonics is higher on the priority list.....

Adrianople has already been done, twice, in C3i, though only in Epic format. Anyway, this expansion/game would go beyond Adrianople: Belisarius, Attila... lots of interesting battles! However, if RB is still working on the project, I wouldn't expect anything for 2013...

Looking to get into this series. Been playing GBoH SPQR, Caesar Civil Wars and Conquest of Gaul. Love the system, but a little long in playing time.

Could be hard for me as all of the expansions are OOP.

Thread necro I know, but just wanted to add it would be an instant 'pre-order' for me as well.

Thankfully it wouldnt mess with my play through of your awesome Chronological list Miguel, as all of them would simply be added to the end. laugh
