Building A Game Part II: More Unit Fluff

Moving right along, I figured I would have a go at Part II of assembling the Fluff for the Halo Project I am working on.

ODST

Orbital Drop Shock Troopers are an elite within an elite, an all volunteer corps of specially trained professional UNSC Marines who frequently deploy by surprise into battle via Orbital Drop Pods. ODSTs are the very best Human combatants available to the UNSC Marine Corps. Their armor is more protective than typical marine armor, and also can be sealed for a short period of time against total vacuum. The stats for ODSTs can also be used to represent similar Army formations, such as Special Forces.


UNSC Marines/UNSC Army

Typical marines of the UNSC Marine Corps or troopers of the more static and defensive oriented UNSC Army. For all game purposes, these types of soldiery are identical. These are unaugmented, normally trained marines or soldiers in light armor. They're the best of the best, but they're only human.
As always, let me know what you think. More to come....

It's going to be a skirmish game, played with a twenty sided die. Each player will have a handful (recommended) or a lot (possible) of troops, represented by miniatures.

One figure will represent one guy. It's going to be based on Neuicon's Starcraft game that I posted the link to a few days ago.
