Only just spotted this Hector.

I really like the game although haven't played in at least 6 months. The rules are relatively straightforward and you can have a good game even if you exclude at least half of the less commonly used stuff. I've only ever played games where you just try and kill each other, which were fun enough in themselves, but there are plenty of objective based missions from memory. The factions are pretty different from each other too so that keeps things very fresh.
The mechanics rely on lots of modifiers and mainly rolling d10s which makes a change from other systems I guess. It is also a pretty reasonable game cost wise to get into.
I think beasts of war do a couple of demo game videos that would be worth checking out to give you a flavour and if you're interested I should just about have enough models to do a demo game at some point if I can remember the rules!

Hope this has helped
