Does anyone have any recommendations for good hex & counter boardgames that simulate man to man combat in a science fiction setting? I am not interested in giant mechs like Mechwarrior but something like Saving Private Ryan in the future.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

The miniatures in the below crossed out games are a self-contained set and do not require the owner to buy more to play the game. I often think of miniatures as grand sandbox types games with 15mm or 25mm painted figures.

Earth Reborn
Last Frontier: The Vesuvius Incident
Space Hulk (third edition)
Project Pandora: Grim Cargo
Space Infantry- a solo game, but pretty good.

Bug Hunter Sniper!: Sniper! Companion Game #3
Sort of a cross between Sniper! (second edition) and Intruder...

Rogue Trooper - basically a quest game, but lots of combat.
StarSoldier: Tactical Warfare in the 25th Century - man-to-man game from the Starforce Trilogy.
