I remember folk playing this back in the late 80's, the game is legendary but I've never played it myself. There are buckets of troop types and all sorts of terrains that offer the different beasties bonuses or penalties in battle based on their affiliations.
I think the battles are resolved via dice rolls, a bit like some advanced form of Risk. I also think there is something about upgrading your units to bigger and badder types if you have the right combination of lower leveled grunts.
But all of this pretty vague and hazy.
