From Gaming Report:

Rackham is showing off models for their new plastic miniatures game "AT43". The figs are prepainted and plastic making it a very different game for them compared to their other lines. The game looks to be a skirmish "Mech." style game with small tactical units and infantry. The game looks to be approximately. 28mm. Rackham staff are not giving a lot of information on the game just yet. The game is due out for Christmas.

As far as I know, the game is slightly inspired on the "Dust" series (Paolo Parente).

Dust is (AFAIR) "what if in middle of WWII aliens launched a massive attarck to the Earth, and then the factions fighted against aliens but also against themselves, getting some alien tech"?. Something like this. So, imagine mechs around WWII, not steampunk (IKWM), not mechwarrior, but warmachines on mid XX century.

As it seems, AT43's look is something like Dust, but more "modern". I think it's gonna be something like "actual" armies but with mechs (or more like dreadnoughts like Robocop's dread or like Space Crusade...)

Harry Turtledove also wrote a series of books about some alien lizards attempting to colonise our planet during WWII.

Hmm, I think I'll stick to Confrontation right now. Don't see anything special yet.

The search fonction is your friend : AT-43 is discussed on this thread (http://warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23495), aptly named... "AT 43, Rackham's sci-fi game".
