    The thing about CM is that it's open to so many different kinds of enemies - not unlike vanilla - except we have giant fucking guns.

    Take the Vanilla cult, for example.
    - Small in numbers.
    - Grows through conversion.
    - Ability-based.
    - Corrupts the area that they loiter in.
    - Share a common "head" they live to protect.

    Nar'sie, a clock, standard Satan, even just the Queen Mother could all work pretty damn well. I've borderline wanted to do a write-up of them myself because of their potential (All Lovecraftian, different Old Ones for different classes).

    I agree with the other commenters that I like Zombies and Necromorphs; another pair of conversion races. Same with something like Warhammer's Chaos, or Tyranids. Above-Unga Orkz? That'd be great.

    Xenoids could provide a good alternative as well. They - like the cults - could just be Xeno sidegrades. More vicious, more fragile, something fucky with fire,

    I would argue that the nuanced threats wouldn't work well:
    Blob? Too much for one player to manage.
    Changeling/The Thing? BWOINK: "Took the last angled grip" is not 'ling thing to do.
    Wizard? Queens and their suites of spells are already taken-down by two people with shotguns abusing a cooldown.

    All-in-all: I support anything that innovates gameplay.

    Honestly the bugs from Starship Troopers could swap in for Xenos easily enough. They have alot of similar units.

    This game could easily apply to Imp Guard vs Nids or Starcraft Terrans vs Swarm.

    The ideas and applications are quite endless.

    So I wouldn't be opposed to a shift but that would quite literally force Frans and the Spiriting team to commit suicide.

    You already have new bug-like sprites for benos. Slighty change old sprites to something not looking like ALIENS TM and here we go. New sprites for new aliens, old sprites for old benos.

    Problem is available code-hours. Basically can only code so much stuff. Adding a Zerg/Arachnid/Tyranid like race would mean splitting work from xenos and marines to ensure the new race more or less works. Basically the new race would be endless and not rely on infections rather just sending endless numbers to overrun marines, as is how they all work more or less. It would need to be properly designed and balanced.

    It could be fun but I am not trusting anyone to not just make some gimped xenos. If they were endless wave tactics and marines had to be on offensive to win or eventually lose maybe something. If it was you got 40 aliens that it no to little replacement it just xenos but different coating, which I have a feeling what it going to be.

    EDIT: OH FORGOT

    Zombies isnt even fixed yet fix that first then we talk about other races how about that. How about fixing WO so we can spice up the game a bit? How about fixing the stuff we have in the first place even?
