I just bought into this pre-painted minis game and think it is great. The game was released last year, but suffered from production problems. Fantasy Flight Games has taken over distribution for the USA and has worked out most of the kinks.
Rackham, the company that produces this great game, has also re-released its fantasy Confrontation minis game using the same game engine as AT-43. What is cool is that most of the metal figs from the older game are playable in the new game. Confrontation is prepainted as well.
What are its strengths?
- Quick gameplay and easy rules
Surprising tactical depth
Take mini out of box, place on table, play...
Anyway, I think it is a great game and was wondering if anyone else was interested?

Technically is not official, but it is better than the official one.
