Hay all I've been looking at the Iron Kingdoms game for a far and am wondering if it's any good.
What are the general public opinions?
Worth spending the money to get into?
How easy is it to pick up and play?

I enjoyed it, but the non-minis gamers in my group found the rules a bit overwhelming... we played a one-shot game to introduce the setting and mechanics, and two shortish (~6 session) campaigns, but then haven't picked it up again since.

Great for background details on Immoren, if you have a group that's already familiar with some of it from Warmachine/Hordes. There's a lot of detail to dig into, both in the narrative and the mechanics - so if your group likes that sort of thing, I recommend it. If there are a few people who prefer more rules-light RPGs in the group, you may run into some trouble.

Love the setting but I think the ruleset is in a weird place.

It's not quite a wargame but not quite an RPG.
