Hi,
I bought the Martians Marines box but I don't have scenario to use it.
Does anyone has any scenario?
Thank you

Hmmm... I've bought only two expansion boxes so far (not the Marines, though) and they both came with a special rules pamphlet and a few scenarios. If yours didn't come with any documentation, then I'm not sure if that's the case with all the Martian Marines boxes, or if it was a slip by Mantic. Have you tried emailing them?

At any rate, the Martian Marines are introduced in the "Humanity Resists" rulebook. There are five or so scenarios in that book which use the Martian Marines. And I believe there are more scenarios in the later rulebooks which also use the Marines.

But if you have the core game and bought the Marines as an expansion, then the expansion box should include a pamphlet with a few scenarios to enable you to play the Marines with the core game. Again, if that's not in the box, I'd contact Mantic.

I haven't looked in a while, but I believe they also sell their rulebooks on their website. You might be able to buy a copy of the Humanity Resists Rules from there. (Being a board gamer, I've come to realize that selling rulebooks is a miniatures thing - and I understand why).

Mantic is not doing this very well. The rules and scenarios come with the "expansion" boxes:

The rest of the boxes are "support" and "infantry" and are merely to add more stuff to the expansions so don't come with any rules.

They really need to have warnings on those addon boxes to say "need xxx expansion box to play".

You need to get Humanity Resists to get the rules for the marines. The World War book also has rules for the marines but using their point based system (but doesn't have scenarios for the marines).

Mantic didn't really think this out very well.
