I am looking for rules to go with Mark Copplestone Future Wars range. Any recommendations.

Thanks in advance

You can use several rule sets:
1. Pulp Alley
2. Fistful of Lead by Wiley Games (Special PA supplement comes...)
3. Mutants & Deathray from Andrea Sfigoli (Songs of Blades and heroes)
4. Rogue Star from Osprey Publishing

Also Void Pirates or Blasters and Bulkheads, both by Four Color Studios.  VP is for smaller groups of characters, B&B works better for slightly bigger battles.  Lots of good options (include what NurgleHH listed) available.

Well the original Killzone rules were designed with these models in mind and have aged pretty well. Google Nick Lund Grenadier Killzone.

Knowing my luck, I would throw the pin and still be holding the grenade - gulp!

I'd nominate Galactic Heroes as well.

Well worth taking a look at.

Another vote for Galactic Heroes from the Fistful of Lead stable. As mentioned there is a Post Apocalypse supplement being published around September time. But you could easily play with Galactic Heroes or the Core rules book of FFoL

7TV, 7TV: Apocalypse, and 7TV: Pulp would also be good choices for rules.

What Malamute said. For small unit shirmsh-level games, the FFoL rules play really well (and you don't need to spend a fortune on figures). I'm currently putting together post-apocalypse forces (5-8 figures per player) for this game.
