AT-43

I know that this is a Rackham game, which are usually way expensive, but I don't see anyway I can pass this one up.
Has anybody else read about this game?

http://www.rackham.fr/

There are a few pictures in the "Cool Figures from other games" thread, but after combing their boards( I've already registered) , I've gotta say, I'm very curious about this.
I love the "Universe".
They're pre-painted, and roughly 28-30mm.
Sounds like a simple combat rule-set.
There are a couple Mechs, or "Fire-Toads", I'm curious how those will work in the game. Could this lead to vehicles in HS?

I could be moving into "dangerous water", but I'm definately planning on buying the starter box.

EDIT: It seems Rackham's "Main" site is updated just a hair more then Hasbros.
While the Homepage has some cool visuals this is where I found the most info.

Note that most people here *gasps* "go a couple of days without posting at a time."

Doc_Savage is surprisingly tart
I have looked AT-43 over as well. If you break it down - compared to Games Workshop - it isn't that expensive. Compared to HS it is...

The figures are beautiful and I might be tempted to buy a squad or hero if the have them at the FLGS, but I'm in on the Starship Troopers squads for HS customs for sure.

Looks interesting and the prepainted concept is a definite plus. I saw the picture of the UNA Multilaser trooper on the forums, but I'm having a hard time believing that paintjob is indicative of what we can expect when they are massed produced. I know Rackham puts out high quality stuff, but can the general release paintjobs even come close to that mini? If so, look out pocketbook.

boom, I think they will be painted pretty close to that quality.
Rackham seems to be know for it's quality, but is also competing with it's own fan base a bit.
Most of the complaints I've read come from expert miniature painters.

I'd rather play than paint.

It is pricey compared to Heroscape msrp expected to be $80. Most places offer a discount if you preorder so it can be had in the $65 range, but I'm afraid I have used up my fall games budget on castles/wave5 and Battlelore.

I kind of wish I'd seen At-43 before I preordered Battlelore but what can you do.

Something else I just found out.
There is like a D/FW sized crew up here that is playing Rackham games, some of the first demos in the Country are going to be up here.
