I want to get a gift for my freind who is a warhammer player, but we have been introducing him to several euro style games. he very much enjoys ones with some battle element to them, however thats not the type of game i want to play. what do you recommend for him? he has played and enjoyed:

Small World
Twilight Imperium (Third Edition)
Advanced Civilization

Which warhammer? 40k or Fantasy? Depending on what he plays I'd likely pick something with a similar theme.

Such as Rune Wars for fantasy and Eclipse or StarCraft: The Board Game for sci-fi

warhammer normal Ks, Eclipse is already around and i don't want to spend that much on the game. starcraft is out, but maybe game of thrones he would appreciate...
i also think you linked to the wrong rune wars maybe

Game of thrones is a solid game that would probably make a good choice. The multiplayer struggle for the balance of power and knowing when to react offers a slight twist to the usual 2 player wargaming.

Why not Chaos in the Old World. I have seen gamers of all varieties enjoy this one.
