I picked up a copy of the Relics game by Tor at Hereward yesterday and a starter box of the Ridend force. Watched a bit of a game demo and it seemed a decent enough thing; quick to pick up and to play. The models have a nice originality to them and, specifically, I did indeed want some miniatures of little armoured lizard guys riding angry chickens. The rules are available for free download and the website is even canny enough to say: "grab some proxies" and to give it a go.
Could give it a try at some point if anyone is interested (but give me about six months warning to actually get them painted ... ;-) )
