Where to find it:
In the FILES section for Battlestations
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/fileinfo/38726

What is it?

a few pages that explain the use of the creatures from the iconic ALIEN and ALIENS films in Battlestations, giving them stats and abilities and effects.



I made it for fun, and figured I'd post it for others to try also. I know i will be using it in my games because of both the nostalgia factor and the ability to play the events of the movies, as well as open up new possibilities for scenarios.

Download it and tell me what you think, you may be pleasently surprised.

I'm also thinking about creating a Predator module to open up the possibility of ALIEN vs PREDATOR scenarios.goo

this is great! thanks for doing this.

i made all the marines from Aliens, into Battlestations characters. i just used the bug stats from the main book for the aliens. people had a great time playing the marines, i even got a couple people that didn't know about Aliens......i must be old.

stay well,

jj

Nice supplement. I missed only the Queen and variant Aliens, mixed with dog, Silicoid (OMG), Xeloxian, etc.

Cheers

Thought I'd seen all the movies, what are the Silicoid (weren't they all silicon based?) and Xeloxian aliens? Is the Xeloxian the doofy one from the aliens where they cloned Ripley?

No, their not in the movies. He was just saying it would be fun to have an alien born from a silicoid, a race in battlestations, or even Xeloxians (the big roach race) haha.

Printed and read. Hopefully I'll get a chance to use it. I was actually going to make an Aliens version until I found it was already done for me.

THANKS!

Very Cool. One little thing is that, if an alien jumps out of an airduct into a room, you can use the same random placement as teleportation by rolling a d6 and placing the alien on the grey number!
