    Predator, Bishop (cyborg) and a male soldier (who huntes predator) would be good units to the future :)

    Probably. It was just called 'Alien' here

    They should have called it 'Alien Plus 7 Snacks' :D

    I think I remember hearing the 8th passenger thingy in Finland as well when the movie came out. It's been Alien ever since, though...

    I always thought of it as a tagline, like "in space no one can hear you scream".

    Excellent work. It looks much cleaner. I think I'll use this as a postapocalyptic mutant unit.

    Looks good. Nice "monster" unit.
    I would suggest that "If" you feel like changing anything it be its attack.
    Right now it sort of looks like it is spanking a naughty child... Perhaps have the arm swing further so it looks more agressive in the swipe.
    Another option would be to have it swing 1 arm then the other so it looks more balanced. This is obviously harder then just getting the arm to go further.

    What a great idea. All we need now are Predators, for a Alien vs Predator mod. Some marines would be nice to.
    good work.

    thanks for the comments!!! And I agree, we need a Predator unit :) The character Ripley (female marine) I did months ago and I need re-do this unit.
