Re: Miniatures tips.

I use Denizen Miniatures near-future range for colonial marines (because.. heck, they are the ones from the movie!) and Tin Soldier's Homophages for Aliens, both in 25mm (like the original Leading Edge miniatures). BTW, GZG makes a trio of "alien hunters" which look exceedingly good as predators...

Re: Corebook Errata

There is consistent typo in the last sections where secession wars become succession ones. Secession war: war on which a territory wages war in order to attain its independence from another political entity Succession war: a war which starts after the death of the country's ruler between factions su...

Re: How many xenos on LV-426?

In the original (never aired) version of Alien, Dallas told Ripley he was being transformed into "one of those things". That scene originally never passed the cut, so in the sequel they had the option of introducing a queen. When they decided to air the Director's Cut of the original movie they deci...

Re: Share your on-theme campaign Ideas

No campaign but one-shot ideas (which could be developed into full campaigns): - Beacon's Bait: the character's ship receives a cryptic signal comming from a seemingly uninhabited planet. What starts as an apparent Alien's rip-off turns out into a trap as the signal has been crafted by a band of str...

Re: Prometheus - the Franchise killer

I think we are getting off-topic here, but... The real reason behind Hick's killing was budget constraints. Originally Sigourney Weaver couldn't make another Alien film because she had already sign to make another film, so the producers decided she will appear only briefly and the main characters wo...

Re: Prometheus - the Franchise killer

Re: Is Aliens: Colonial Marines still considered canon?

They've even taken elements from the unused William Gibson Alien 3 script (recently made into an audio drama) that features HIcks.
They even took the idea of the "monastic space station whose interior is completely made of wood"  (Arceon, page 157) from yet another unused Alien 3 script

A Hard Life Amongst The Stars - Erratas

Do you have another feedback system set up for this new chapter, do we need to use the old one or shall we post them here?

Re: The Game Mother?

That reminds me of the old 8-bits alien videogame: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/A6NVttxy_nI/hqdefault.jpg Mother: "Fire at Engine Room #3" Taking control of one of the crewmen (Parker?), I entered Engine Room #3, grabbed the Fire Extinguisher there and pushed the use button Mother: "Fire Extinguished at E...
