Well, there has been some experimentation on that subject. We tried a few games with an equal point value of tripods (750) and it wasn't anywhere near a fair match. The tripods got squashed every time. I think the consensus is that you need 1250-1500 points of Martians to give a land ironclad a good fight.
The original AQMF site, owned and run by Alien Dungeon, is long gone. 95% of all models were produced by them. After the bankruptcy, they were bought by Ironclad Games/Miniature Market who reestablished the game at quietmartianfront.com. They produced the Goliath, the Overseer and pieces to add to a regular tripod to make it a "Gatherer" Tripod. I'm not sure if they created any other "new" models. A couple other companies have produced compatible models (particularly slave2gaming and Conqueror Models) which are great fun, but have never been "official."
And there are two Martian style machines available through Rebel Miniatures. I've got one of each of them and use them as 2nd Gen. tripods - see my TO&E on the anti-aircraft tripod and the force-field tripod. They also have some foot troops that I used to create a 2nd Generation unit from. These are not Lobos, as they use no human shell, but, are self contained fighters. More food, less waste for a hunger Martian empire.
