When I first saw this movie I was not impressed. I was comparing it to Aliens and Star Wars and I exected it to take itself seriously in the same vein. It didn't. It was completely cheesey and over the top......and that was the intention.
 
There are some very inspirational sites on the web of guys playing Starship Trooper  wargames, and after seeing these I was hooked. I'm using the old galoob range of figures, bugs, dropships, etc.....together with my wonderful fort built for me by Andy Roalfe.

Wargaming Ideas
 
If you visit the South London Warlords website they have a brilliant series of pictures to accompany a set of rules called "Bugs" that they have developed. The rule set is also downloadable in PDF format. You can find their website at:

I've uplifted one of their pics to give you a taste:
