As a young lad I grew up watching all of the Sci-Fi Programs of the late 70s and 80s, There are a few which particularly stuck in my mind Aliens, Starship Troopers and of course War of the Worlds.
So I thought I would combine all of these interest into one Sci-Fi Project to simplify matters.
I also thought with this being my first foray into Sci-Fi wargaming that I would invent ( with the help of Pendraken Miniatures forum members) two warring factions.
The rules we will be using are Future War Commander Rules
The core of the army will be built using Pendraken Miniature's.

After asking for help on the Pendraken forum, Grumpy came up with a brilliant suggestion of using the Avatar Scorpion RDA Gunship as transport for my armoured Marines or as an objective. so I bought 3 from eBay.
