I think Agis is busy working on the art for this product, i.e. pictures of his fabulously painted sci-fi miniatures!

Agis, will you consider running another vote once you are closer to being done?  With Planetfall taken it would be interesting to see where the votes would go!  (Go Future Combat!)  Wink

Indeed I am at the last stages.
The book is basically done, only the Bioengineered Xenomorph army list has to be added, then proofreading.

Some more pics and after that layout.

As far as the name is concerned "Victory Decision: Future Combat" is the new name!

Tim sent me the link to this topic and I am quite excited as I have been looking for a good generic sci-fi ruleset for some time.

Now to make up some Martian stats  Wink

Hmmm Martians?

Not difficult to tackle.  Wink
The Future Combat book features 3 army lists at different tech levels.
The Martians would be well covered by the High Tech list.

Basic Combat Element is the Multirole Combat Suit (MCS). The MSC entry provides agood starting Point for a Martian unit.

The unit Looks like this:
Multirole Combat Suit Infantry Squad - 335 points
Multirole Combat Suit (MCS) Infantry provide the backbone of the High Tech Infantry. Their power armoured suits allow faster movement in difficult terrain while providing highly advanced protection and battlefield awareness.
1st MCS Fire Team: MCS Squad Leader (unit leader) with Laser Carbine, 4 MCS Soldiers with Laser Rifles.
2nd MCS Fire Team: MCS Team Leader with Laser Carbine, 4 MCS Soldiers with Laser Rifles.
Type                Critical   Hit   Save   Ld   Ability
MCS Squad Leader,
MCS Team Leader   6+   4+   4+   5   Fire Team, Grenades, Light Footed,
Night Vision, Tank Hunter
MCS Soldier   6+   4+   4+   4   Fire Team, Grenades, Light Footed,
Night Vision, Tank Hunter

Weapon                U/T   Range   Damage   Features   Points
Laser Carbine   3   12   3xD6   Laser   6
Laser Rifle   3   24   D6+1   Laser   6

Laser
Laser or similar Beam weapons can inflict additional damage once they hit the target.
After all shooting attacks are resolved count the number of unsaved hits of the target unit. Roll for armour Save for that number again ignoring any cover modifiers or Infantry Cover saves. Which models to remove is again the choice of the model owning player.

So without any Options you have a power armoured unit (2+ save in Hard cover!) with a very decent ranged weapon.
But that is only where the fun starts.
The Options enable you then to fully stat your Units in almost any way desired...
Youn can add Artillery Specialist or Medics.  You can equip the unit with Special weapons as an Anti Aircraft Guided Missile Launcher, Anti Tank Guided Missile Launcher, Flamethrower, Guided Grenade Launcher, Laser Assault Weapon, Kinetic Pulse Gun or Light Plasma Launcher ... and BTW all weapons have Points costs, so no guessing around.
Or you can give the unit a different combat role:
Close Combat Specialist, Cavalry, Motor or Hoverbikes, Combat Drugs , Jet Packs, Stealth Package etc etc

Using the above rules I only have to rename the MSC unit and have a nice Martian Invader unit:

Martian Invader  Infantry Squad - 335 points
1st Martian Invader Fire Team: Martian Squad Leader (unit leader) with Laser Carbine, 4 Martian Soldiers with Laser Rifles.
2nd Martian Invader Fire Team: Martian Team Leader with Laser Carbine, 4 Martian Soldiers with Laser Rifles.
Type                        Critical   Hit   Save   Ld   Ability
Martian Squad Leader,
Martian Team Leader   6+   4+   4+   5   Fire Team, Grenades, Light Footed, Night Vision, Tank Hunter
Martian Soldier           6+   4+   4+   4   Fire Team, Grenades, Light Footed, Night Vision, Tank Hunter

Weapon                U/T   Range   Damage   Features   Points
Deathray Carbine   3       12       3xD6       Laser   6
Deathray Rifle       3       24       D6+1       Laser   6

Are those Martian invaders that go "Ack! Ack-Ack! Ack!" and hate country music, or Martian Invaders that go "Ulllaaah!", "Aloo! Aloo!" or some other kind of unpronounceable hooting and hate the common cold?

Not sure if I get the question right...  Confused

It is intended for Martian Invaders in the 50s/ 60s or like the Mars Attack movie.
