Fantasy Wars - Preview @ Gamersinfo.net
Gamersinfo.net has posted a preview of Fantasy Wars, the fantasy turn based strategy title with rpg elements from Ino-co and 1C:

Gameplay-wise, it's a pretty orthodox turn-based strategy affair with the occasional spark of ingenuity to perk your interest. The maps are divided into the traditional hexes, and you direct your various units around them, clicking on enemies to wage from either near or far. Elvish units can toss magic around the hexagonal portions of territory like Frisbees, and archers and ranged characters can launch attacks if they get within a predefined number of hexes of their prey.
Your units will level up with more battle experience, and you can choose one of three 'perks' every time this occurs in order to boost a particular statistic with a new skill or spell. It's also advantageous that you can take up a turn to rest your weary troops and replenish your health; otherwise they'll all be falling orc-wardly to the floor sooner than you can give them a slap with your sword…
…It's not a hugely difficult title, concentrating instead of decent rock-paper-scissors balancing between the various units and factions and encouraging you to think tactically without making your head hurt. It's by no means a walkover, especially when you crank up the difficulty - but it's not going to tax you if you're new to the genre, either.
More information.

This looks like a fun game. I played ascension to the throne also from 1c and the combat looks similar to what Fantasy wars has. Ascension was a blast to play. It's combat system was familiar to games like Heroes of Might and Magic and Age of Wonders but was quite different from both of them at the same time.
