Yes, I love playing the classic game style, but it would be awesome incorporating some of the ideas such as Heroes and Strongholds into another option for game type.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar here is a quick summary of how they change gameplay:
Leaders/Heroes: Moves like a troop, but isn't counted as a troop. Provides +1 to highest dice roll on offense and defense.
Stronghold: A designated territory on the map that provides +1 to highest dice roll when defending. I believe any stronghold also gets a bonus reinforcement placed there during the Draft stage of the game.
