Thank you All for the very useful suggestions.
I am thinking to a have a go at Tribal. They seem catching the essence of Troy period mainly based on Honour.
By the way they cover Aztec period as well which is among my wargame favourites. (Honestly I like almost all periods :-* :D)

Is “Tribal” still available? When I last looked it seemed to be out-of-print. I would also be interested in it for a variety of games.

We have had great fun using Lions Rampant in the past. It's our goto game for this size of battle.

Chech out our thread

Mortal gods would be my suggestion I think.

We have used a Modified version of Lion Rampant , we call Paris Rampant.
My mate Rolf put them together ,  they work really well.
We have a major hero and a minor hero for each player , and you can pump up the amount of attack dice per hero .
For example Achilles Myrmadons, it has Achilles and his elite Body Guard of 6 guys , then 2 units of 12 normal Myrmadons , plus a unit of 6 archers .
Achilles can add up to 6 extra attack dice ( similar to Hector ) most major leaders have 3 to 4 extra attack dice , minor leader 2 dice.
This makes the heoes quite powerfull, as they should be !!!
The Lion Rampant Rules system is  quite elegant , and allow lots of customisation, and they work with big games.
Our last encounter was 8 players on my 15 x 6 ft Table 600 figures , 30 cav , and 35 chariots, 16 heroes , and the walls of Troy in the back ground ..lol
It looked quite good ...
Hope this helps
Cheers.

Lion Rampant is what I use. There was a Bronze Age adaptation in Wargames Illustrated? Really fits the period.

I wish I could know the issue where this adaptation was published . I've got plenty of back issues of WI magazine but not so well filed :'(

Von Akers, can you tell us more about how you use heroes? I am doing Middle Earth "Glaurung Rampant" and have heroes a bit like you do.  So far I only allow 3 extra dice for most and 4 extra for extra powerful characters.  Perhaps I am being too restrictive? In my rules the more dice a hero uses the more risk they have in combat.

A second edition is to release later this year  :) Trojan War and other bronze age things will have a dedicated section as far as I know  ;)

For what it's worth Footsore have said there is likely to be a Trojan War supplement for Mortal Gods this year.

Not a bad new :) Even if IMHO Test of Honour is far better than MG :(
