The last 2 games I've bought I've enjoyed inmensely.
Warhammer:Invasion and Claustrophobia (this one I haven't played as much, but very solid so far).

Can anyone tell me of another game worthy to be in my hoard? Though I like complex games, they rarely never hit the table. cry so I'm looking for a good-looking game, with nice rules and gamelength of ~1 hour (or 1 1/2 h).

Cheers!

Sounds like you a are an Ameritrasher so I would recommend Descent and the Road to Legend expansion if you have at least two other people to play with.

For 2P only, Horus Heresy

You might wanna check out Chaos in the Old World. Seems like it would fit the bill.

What about Catacombs? It seems a nice game (a bit basic on the illustrations side).
Anyone can shed light on this? Is it replayable? I've read the most interesting character is the wizard. Are the other characters comparatively boring?

If you like flicking games (which I do) Catacombs is good. Kind of nice to have a flicking game with a theme. I haven't played it a whole lot, but it seems pretty replayable (but I think that about all of my flicking games). The other characters don't have as many options, but they're still fun. The barbarian guy has a rage attack that lets you clobber a bunch of guys in one turn. The thief can get a cloak of invisibility. The elf has arrows and can get an item that lets her do a regular shot before she shoots the arrows.

Another new game that you could check out is Cyclades.

You vould do a lot worse than buying Catan.

3-4 players (there is a 2p variant but I haven't tried it), 60-90 mins play time and it's a deserved classic.

World of Warcraft miniatures

The game is expensive, but you can do what I did and only buy the deluxe starter and the original starter. Then you just print out and make proxies of all the cards (character, action, equipment) using sleeves and a printer.

Now anyone can make any and all combination available. The game is very open for variants and "team" games.

--

If you are looking for a awesome 2 player game get Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation Deluxe Edition. Nothing quite like it, even though people say its similar to stratego this game kills it.

--

I just got Thunderstone because I love Dominion but I think both of these games would be right up your alley.

--

I also second Settlers, I have not played the expansions but the original is a awesome game.

====

Oh, and all these games run fairly quick with easy to read/understand rules and lots of strategy/tactics. (Well if you download the new Thunderstone rulebook here on BGG).

Descent WITHOUT the RtL would make much more sense, probably still a little longer than you like (2 hours? -- depends a lot on the map and the players).

My best bet would be getting a lot of Magic: The Gathering commons and a couple of pre-built decks. You can play several times within 1 hour and alter the decks between plays.

Something else that might work or not is The Three Musketeers: The Queen's Pendants.

A number of games in Fantasy Flight's Silver Line might also fit: Citadels (however, chance for the game to drag depending on playstyle), Condottiere, Drakon (third edition).
