Thanks for your kind comments.  Yes, the core rules are a bit dry, with most of the interesting bits being in the supplements.  WTF started as an ancients game, and we decided to sling in a few optional fantasy features.  The number of troop types increased to the point that I didn’t want to have to bother with the fantasy features when playing an ancient or medieval game, and I didn’t really need every ancient troop type for fantasy.  I nearly split it into completely 2 separate games, but by that time I had started wondering whether I could adapt it for my English Civil War armies, and began to wonder whether my Martian armies wouldn’t be better served by their own version…

Yes, you are correct in that DBA undoubtedly influenced WTF.  I played DBA and HotT happily for a long time, and I am very grateful to Phil and Sue Barker, and Richard Bodley Scott for the years of pleasure I had from their games.  Unfortunately, I never took to DBA version 3, and got itchy feet.
