alien????

Post by worldmuncher » Mon Jun 15, 2009 4:11 pm

well since no one knows what caused THE EVENT. and it does say "as if" the earth rebelled and since idt any natural disaster can cause an EMP big enough to take out every sattelite revovling the earth that there could be some alien involvement. not like tyranid aliens but more like star-trek aliens. little green men with hi-tech lasers and advanced shields etc. it also does say that the human race never really got anywhere passed the moon with space travel. just like in reality, we dont know what else could be out there

ps this has nothing to do with me playing tyranids.

It could be possible, and if i remember correctly, the first version of the downloadable rules had an alien faction much like the Tyranids, so you're definitely not the only guy who's thought of it. I think an alien race would be really fun to come up with and model; just think of all the possibilities!

sorta like genestealers but 2 arms not 4

Well, they probably don't want to rip off GW or be accused of doing so, so I would expect them to be much different from Tyranids. Roswell-type aliens would be a little boring; you'd have to find the delicious middle point.

lol yea

well theres always like a chaos look on it. they could be roswell sorta aliens with some variety and then some animal-like aliens, like a gaunt sorta, but four legs and spits. and the humanoid-er ones would look like zoats, almost like an alien centaur minotaur thing.

thats why i picked tyranids
the possibilities of the conversions and things you can make are endless cuz all the fluff they have on them are attacks on planets

Im not 100% sure about it. Maybe actually mother nature aliens. Like trents from lord of the rings, andd different earth envirements are different people. Sand men from the Sahara, ice men from antartica?

Again, if aliens found us without us leaving the proximity of earth, we would be f***ed

I ther are aliens they should not be huminoid or look anything like an organism from earth or other sifi. there are infinet posibilities take advantage of them.
I'm thinking a silicon or nitrogen based organism instead of our carbon based ones.
look at the structure of the element for ideas on how it would look.

thats silicon

nitrogen could be have more of a lightning look to it
P.S.this is one of my charished book ideas

aliens would be a good idea but there such a hit or miss thing to do cause you dont want to copy others to much and you dont want to be plain with them either. Tough middle grounds with aliens but you could do such kick butt things with them what you wont be able to do with the human races such as teleprtaion instead of runing what would help cancel out over watch with snpers as a special rule possibly.

This site has some pretty cool aliens on it too. Scroll down to the bottom.

Man, I hope not. I think the game would be so bland without some sort of aliens in it. Imagine if the only army in 40K was IG. That would suck royally.
