Basically turn-based in the Baldur's Gate sense, where you pause, give orders, and then "play"—you can stop at any time to readjust tactics.
The troop count for individual units could just be hidden until you look at them, reflected at a glance by the "size" of the unit.
Yes, that's how Iron Triangle worked. What I meant is that showing an overall troop count for one battle seems odd if it's using the "all one map" system.

I'm not quite as pessimistic about sales but I'm not expecting a top seller.
