B&W is not an RTS in the traditional way. Its arguably a blend between a god sim and a RTS but you generally don't have too much control over your armies compared to a actual RTS, which is what I think you are after.
Command and Conquer 3
Company of Heroes
^ are all good RTS games with different play styles and I'm pretty sure they all have demos. I'd suggest you find some demos for those or any of the games mentioned in this thread and see which one you like before spending 30-50 bucks on one.
