Woolly Monmouth Overrun?
I don't think any domesticated animals were around, a few half feral wolves might tolerate being around familiar humans.

If you introduce Mammoths, that would be in the realm of hunting, rather than combat. In that regard I would see mammoths as a side of their own with a Herd Leader, rather than a human (Cr/Ne/He) directed force. A 3 player scenario. Most times the Mammoths would be directed by the Mammoth player but the other 2 sides would try to panic the Mammoths into a stampede against the other human side. A Mammoth Wave would be a sight to see, though.

Moving through woods or brush might be risky, so a DR for a Random Animal Attack each turn, each side having a RAA counter like ASL's Sniper. A subsequent dr of 1 a big cat, 2 a wolf and 4-6 startled rabbits (NE).

Snake Pits would be the equivalent of Mines, but only 1 or 2 FP and start HIP. If you blunder (Assault Move/Advance gives a +1 to effects DR) into one and survive then you back away slowly (AM or Adv away) or attempt to Capture the Snakes. Capture is done by allowing an additional attack by the snakes and if no IFT effect the Snakes are possessed by the attacked unit (a passed MC does not result in capture). A Shaman/Southern Preacher counter gives a +2 DRM to the 2nd (capture) attack die roll. A Snakes may be placed/thrown like a DC but with a FP of only 4/8 (4 for an original 1 FP Snakes counter, 8 for an original 2). Once placed the Snakes remain in the same location with their higher FP and never move or be recaptured, they're really, really pissed off now.

Torches, as seen recently in Charlottsville, would be treated like MOL but with a -1 DRM for any attack using torches against He. No more than 1/2 (FRU) Torch attacks may be made for each squad equivalent during a game. Only by SSR, use the PF counter to keep track of usage.

Snake Pits and Torches may be allocated to any human side (Cr, Ne, He).

I've been thinking about Homo Floresiensis. Hf would suffer a +1 in HtH CC but also get a beneficial +1 DRM to any other attack including non-HtH CC (basically small target).

I can see Ray now...

German tribes with Saber tooth Tigers and a CER (Caveman Experience Rating) of 5. Slavic Cr/Ne/Hu would have TOR (Torches), and RT-P (Rock Thrown Projectiles) and I am sure Ray will fill in the rest with brand new Cave Geos and Plains and Hills Geos, and the new Cave Leader Campaign 4.5 Rules too!

perhaps CH could really go on a limb and have future conflicts in space, plenty of nationality counter sheets for greys, reptilians, Venusians,
little green men, Pleiadians Dracos, Arcturans you get the idea... feel free to add

French and Indian War scenarios have completed development. Since the 7 years War was the American theatre of the 7 year's War, this may bring Leuthen and Rossbach to ASL down the road.

Yeah, let me roll up on my cannon and break the crew. Rout them right into the corn field. Nah, I can see an argument to model ASL for WW I and Korea, but the civil war? That seems to be a stretch for me.
