This sounds great. Battle for Middle Earth II, the game I first thought of when I heard about Dawn of Fantasy, focuses a bit too much on micro. This can get very stressful. I like how Dawn of Fantasy will have a healthy balance.
I also like the complex yet simple (if that makes any sense) resource system. In BfME2, the resource gathering system is much too simple. Having a more complex system allows the game to have a healthy balance between managing your economy and fighting.
