Has anyone tried these RPG's?  They look interesting and I may check them out at some point.  Wanted to see if anyone had any experience with them.  

I also recently bought the basic set for Edge of the Empire, the Fantasy Flight Star Wars RPG.  I will let people know if it is fun enough to introduce for group play.

Sorry never played those and don't know a whole lot about them.

I don't know about Fate, but I believe Iron Kingdoms is based on the Warmachine/Hordes wargame. I know a little about it.

I've played both, and also run a Dresden Files Fate game.

Fate can be a little simplistic, and depending upon the version, require players to be comfortable with using combat-grade metaphors. Iron Kingdoms features relatively deadly combat, but other than that, is pretty similar in feel to the whole range of d20 games.

I only ask because I saw an article on enworld.org that had the top 5 selling RPG's (http://www.icv2.com/articles/news/28124.html) and those two where the only one's on the list that I was not familiar with. 

BTW, what is a 'combat-grade metaphor'?

traits in Fate can be things like "If Looks Could Kill.." but if you have that trait, you better be able to think of a way to realistically kill someone with a look in-game.
