Well, if you're just looking for something new which you can play for a couple of hours and nothing else, then I can recommend 8-bit Armies and Act of Aggression. They're not bad, it's just you don't get that much invested like the old games did.
Else, if you're looking something more different, just not needing base-building, then either Total War: Warhammer (Though I bashed it only because of the DLCs decisions, it's still worth taking a look) and Battlefleet Gothic Armada (Which GREATLY recalls the Treasure Planet game and Nexus: The Jupiter Incident)
Well, one thing is ripping off Blizzard models and assets to learn how they work. Putting them in another game and calling it your own is something completely different.
P.S: KKND was really awesome.
