I suggest you check out Dark Magenta webzine for a couple of battle reports and some ideas.
I haven't played the game but it does seem quite good. Much smaller scale than DS, around 4 models a 'side'. It is also much less competitively designed - no cost mechanism or limitations on your 'team'. This means it is much more reliant on player competence and goodwill, so didn't really mesh with the Warhammer 40k vibe of competitive tournaments, cut-throat powergaming, etc. (Me, ranting? Never.)
I'd suggest you give it a go using 28mm models (usual scale is 54mm, but since DS / Warhammer is 28...) and see how you go. Don't play to win, play for an awesome story, take time to talk over what is going on. Play it as a role-play game with models, rather than a wargame.
My (uninformed) opinion. Let us know how it went.
