Didn't Fortress Figures make a transparent Predator figure?

Mutants and Death Ray Guns by Ganesha Games has rules for hunter aliens. They are in the Project Simian X Ultra supplement.

One of the Two Hour Wargames sets has rules for a "night terror". You get to be the predator.

You can adapt many rules for this, if desired, with a little ingenuity.

Thank you all,
@ Editor in Chief Bill, Prodos Games with AVP offers 3 transparent Predator figures… But thanks for the info.
@manyslayer, hunter aliens = Predator I hope?
@Stryderg, very good.
@ Thresher01, which ones?

Any skirmish set of rules should work, especially if they are Sci-Fi, but some that come to mind are:

SnapShot for Traveller
FUBAR (a free set of rules)
Fistful of Lead
The Rules with No Name

Of course, some Vietnam, or Modern era rules would be a better match for the weapons.

Not sure of any good, Vietnam era, Man-to-Man rules, currently.

Haven't read/played these yet, but this set of rules looks appropriate and interesting, since there are details for shooting at unseen targets, etc.:

And, they're free, so the price is right!

@ Thresher01,Thank you but if for "modern" soldiers no problem to find something usable, but for the "Predator" and his equipment? How do you play it?

Heroclix also had predators in their Predator v Alien sets, but I'm not sure how available these still are.

You might check out Galactic Heroes, since it has some decent ideas for "Predators" and other creatures, as well as for various weapons.

I haven't played any games with it yet, but it looks promising, and some have posted entertaining battle reports from their games here on TMP. They seem to really like the rules.

There are various attributes that you can add on to the characters and creatures for this set of rules, which might help make a game against/with a Predator, or Predators, interesting.

Also, the rules seem pretty simple, so it looks like you can easily add on others of your own creation, and modify stats to your liking as well, for proper "play balance", if desired.

GH is on sale through tomorrow morning (Monday) on Wargame Vault, as a PDF. You'll also want to get the "Codex Galactica" for some ideas and pre-generated troops/creatures. Gives great examples on adding the attributes to your minis.

See here for the Wargame Vault link:

Looks like a good, fun, beer and pretzels type set of rules, with enough chrome to make games interesting, but not so complex that you need to spend weeks reading and figuring out how they work.

Thank you all, so the only specific rule for that is AVP of Prodos Games?
